  1. full frontal Rudity it ain’t pretty

  2. Only a stable genius like t’rump would look at rudy and say, “yeah, that’s the guy I want as my lawyer!”

    • @Crystal Giddens

      That’s a revelation. I thought Don Lemon was a huge Trump apologist (like Tucker).

      Now you’re telling me that CNN aren’t really feeling the wall and the Muslim ban and the Syria withdrawal and Ukraine schemes.

      I didn’t realise. I’m British you see.

      Thanks for letting me know 👍

      I might subscribe to this CNN 😂

    Lovely E. Giuliani needs to be disbarred

  4. There’s much speculation as to how Rudy Giuliani “America’s Mayor,” the widely admired civic leader who presided over NYC during 9/11, could have been siphoned into Trump’s underworld.  We got a Trump thanks to a compliant, sensationalist media apparatus that breathed life into his phony self-made billionaire myth, just as we owe them for Rudy, who they cast as a post-9/11 American hero.

    By the time that the planes crashed into the Towers on Sept. 11, 2001 Giuliani was a master surfer of the wave of public opinion. In the attacks that played out in lower Manhattan, at the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, PA, close to 3,000 people were killed — 343 of them uniformed New York City firemen.

    Overnight, the media turned Giuliani into a larger than life heroic figure. But the people that were most intimately familiar with the city’s pre-9/11 counter-terrorism preparations knew that it was Giuliani’s failures as Mayor which contributed directly to the horrific body count for the FDNY that day.

    On Feb. 26, 1993, the World Trade Center was attacked with a 1,200-pound bomb concealed in a rental truck that exploded in the basement. The blast killed six, injured 1,000 people, and forced 50,000 to evacuate.

    In a detailed after-action report published in 1994 by the FDNY, the inability of firefighters and their officers to communicate over their analog radios that day was flagged as a vital issue that needed to be addressed with urgency. In 2008 — when Giuliani was running for president — FDNY Lt. James Wood recounted his experiences during the 1993 World Trade Center bombing in an informational video produced by the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF).

    While the bombing had taken place during Mayor Dinkins tenure as Mayor, Giuliani was sworn in on Jan. 2 1994. As the IAFF recalls it, the critical report about the defective fire radios gathered dust for several years.

    It took until March of 2001 for new digital radios to be deployed, but they were withdrawn weeks later after they were deemed responsible for a near life-ending miscue when a firefighter isolated in a basement fire in Queens radioed a “May Day” call for assistance that none of his co-workers heard over their radios. It was only picked up by another fire company miles away. The new radios were shelved, and the old dysfunctional analogs were put back in service.

    The contract for the new radios was a no bid, non-competitive contract that was, as it turned out, just an extension of an existing contract with Motorola, which has a near-monopoly on emergency communications.

    According to a report issued by the NYC Comptroller the next month, Giuliani had “willfully” violated “city contracting rules…. endangering firefighters in a reckless bid to buy a new type of hand-held radio that it later had to pull from service,”  The Times reported that “the new digital radios were never properly tested before being distributed to firefighters.” As City Comptroller Alan Hevesi documented, “they were purchased through what he described as an improper process that did not allow competing companies to bid for the contract.” At the time, Michael Wolf, who represented Com-Net Ericsson, a Motorola competitor, told the Times he was stymied in his efforts to even get the city to consider his company’s products.

    Just six months later, FDNY’s bravest faced the doomsday scenario as they sized up the rescue operation in the Twin Towers on 9/11 that would take so many of their lives. They were equipped with the same analog radios that had failed them so badly when the WTC was bombed back in 1993. As the IAFF video documents and as the 9/11 timeline confirms, at 9:32 am. on 9/11, an FDNY Chief ordered all members in the North Tower down to the lobby. Even though he repeated the order, not a single company responded.

    At 9:59 the WTC South Tower collapsed; and at 10 am the order to abandon the North Tower was repeated. Inside the North Tower were 121 firefighters who never heard that order. They perished when the North Tower collapsed at 10:28 am.

    “On 9/11 firefighters went into the North Tower and started ascending the tower, yet they were being called back and they kept going,” said Richard Salem, an attorney who has been representing several of the firefighters’ families who lost loved ones when the North Tower collapsed. “Not one other uniformed officer from any other department, who had functioning radios, perished in that tower other than the FDNY.”

    Despicably, Giuliani tried to cover up his own malfeasance by telling the 9/11 Commission that the North Tower firefighters had ignored the radio orders because of “their willingness, the way I describe it to stand their ground.”

    Retired FDNY Deputy Chief Jim Riches, who lost his son Jimmy in the North Tower, will tell this tragic story to anyone who will listen. He and other surviving family members shadowed Giuliani during the 2008 primary and carried on a media campaign that was picked up by outlets like the Guardian.

    “These radios did not work in the WTC in 1993 and they did not work in 2001.” Jim Riches stated. “We got the story out there but when the media christened him ‘America’s Mayor,’ it all went away.”

      This should be copy pasted everywhere

    • David J Giuliani wasn’t a great mayor at all… the world now see his true face. He has always been an underhanded individual. Especially to those of us in the inner city. We had the worst years under him. you reap what you sow. I hope he stay under this bus.

    • David J – Thank you for sharing that! I had no idea about any of that. Always good to hear the truth. I always wondered why Rudy was in the spot light after 9/11. I now know why he drinks. To cover up his guilt, and because that’s all he knows is cover ups!!! WHEW….WOW

    • David J, thank you for sharing that enlightening piece on the Ghould. It is fitting Giuliani is getting investigated. Should have been sooner, but this way is good as well as I am hoping he will take Trump down with him.

    • Well said.

  5. They’ll serve Rudi a large pizza from Domino’s in prison.

  6. If Rudy acts as his own attorney, he would have 2 fools for clients.

  7. Since when has Giuliani been anything like a “hunter” these past two years? He’s been nothing but a traveling circus clown on the news shows and now a fall guy and he’s STILL too stupid to understand that.

    • @Kim B That’s because you are dumb. You unsurprisingly don’t get the joke just like you don’t get that there is evidence of Ghouliani and associates plotting to dig dirt against Biden’s son which he admitted to by saying” whatever he did it for (Lying) Trump” ,when there is nothing to find since Biden worked in accordance with the E.U, the IMF and even some Rapepublikkkans who were also demanding that the corrupt prosecutor gets removed. Nothing burger that badly backfired on the soon to be impeached liar-in-chief and soon to be indicted Ghouliani😂😂😂

    • @Kim B That’s what all the trolls are trying _really_ hard to push but that meme has collapsed under its own dishonest weight. Better find a new meme, that one is dead…

      @Kim B hahahaha even Bolton has confirmed criminality

    • It’s sad though. He could have just retired with his reputation pretty much intact. But, no, his ego got in the way.

  8. In a way it’s to bad Rudy will soon go away, he did a great job of representing Trump… for prosecution.
    And his insane rants, were very entertaining in a Sarah Palin/Betsy Devos kind of way.

  9. “America’s Mayor” has been begging for this with antics in front of the cameras.

    • @D Tschuor I feel like his family should be stepping in and letting him know that he is not thinking clearly.

    • @Coleen Annis He WALKED away from his family….for his young new side piece his wife BUSTED HIM with.

    • @Jake Moeller I’m sure Rudy felt very little pity for the criminals he gladly prosecuted to ‘the fullest extent of the law.’ Of all who flout the law, he should be well aware of the consequences.

    • @Willi Ingulf Ditlefsen I only remember him through the footage…but I know he was not an admired mayor prior to 9/11. All around, he’s just not the kind of public figure I admire or support. When I see historical images of folks, I always feel a sympathy for our younger selves…when we were more idealistic and wanted to change the world, usually for the better.

    • @Coleen Annis Yeah,what Keion said…I don’t think he is warmly loved in his family. Given his public behavior, I think I sort of get it…

  10. An uncanny coincidence that [nearly] all the “best people” Trump appointed & hired are now in jail, prison, under investigation, or awaiting indictment. It’s as if he’s a stone-cold criminal himself.

  11. Alcoholism and early onset dementia aren’t a good combination .

    America’s biggest criminals have always worn suits.

  13. *Rudy Giuliani’s* new address:
    *Rikers Island*

  14. Michael Cohen told ya, Rudy.

  15. It’s been said before, everything Trump touches dies.

  16. “I only hire the best people…” DJT

    #MagaTrash

  17. This is like if Harvey Dent, instead of getting splashed with acid and becoming Two-Face, fell into a bottle and became Grandpa Munster.

  18. Trump about Giuliani: “I don’t know the guy”

  19. Rudy: Hey everyone investigate Joe Biden

    Everyone: Let’s investigate Giuliani

    Well that didn’t go as planned. Lol.

    • @Geir Eivind Mork Stop trying to influence them with facts my friend. They prefer their ‘beautiful fiction’ to coming to terms with the reality that they believe liars, conmen who don’t even care to reward them for their sycophantic love.

    • @Todd Jones It’s a free country (over here). No need to watch it if you don’t like it. FOX is making every effort they can to keep it fact free…sounds like your kinda hangout my man.
