After playing the crazy uncle living in the attic — during his infamous RNC convention scream session — former Gotham City and information challenged Mayor Rudy Gee strikes again.
As reported by NPR:
For a man once accused of forming every sentence with a noun, a verb and 9/11, it was a serious omission.
Rudolph Giuliani appeared to forget the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001, while warming up a crowd for Donald Trump’s foreign policy speech on Monday.
“By the way,” Giuliani said, “under those eight years, before Obama came along, we didn’t have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States. They all started when Clinton and Obama got into office.”
The oversight was all the more glaring because Giuliani had spoken moments earlier about visiting ground zero with Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence, “when we went through the worst foreign attack in our history since the War of 1812.
Donald Trump promised to surround himself with the so-called best and brightest minds yet between Rudy and spokesperson Katrina Pierson —“Obama invaded Afghanistan” — DT seems determined seek advisers that are just as delusional, dimwitted and dishonest as the boss.
On the other hand, is Trump self-sabotaging as Michael Moore and many other political folks are surmising:
Donald Trump never actually wanted to be President of the United States. I know this for a fact. I’m not going to say how I know it. I’m not saying that Trump and I shared the same agent or lawyer or stylist or, if we did, that that would have anything to do with anything. And I’m certainly not saying that I ever overheard anything at those agencies or in the hallways of NBC or anywhere else. But there are certain people reading this right now, they know who they are, and they know that every word in the following paragraphs actually happened.
Trump was unhappy with his deal as host and star of his hit NBC show, “The Apprentice” (and “The Celebrity Apprentice”). Simply put, he wanted more money. He had floated the idea before of possibly running for president in the hopes that the attention from that would make his negotiating position stronger. But he knew, as the self-proclaimed king of the dealmakers, that saying you’re going to do something is bupkus — DOING it is what makes the bastards sit up and pay attention.
And then… you can see the moment it finally dawned on him… that “Oh shit!” revelation: “I’m actually going to be the Republican nominee — and my rich beautiful life is f#*@ing over!” It was the night he won the New Jersey primary. The headline on TIME.com was, “Donald Trump’s Subdued Victory Speech After Winning New Jersey.” Instead of it being one of his loud, brash speeches, it was downright depressing. No energy, no happiness, just the realization that now he was going to have to go through with this stunt that he started. It was no longer going to be performance art. He was going to have to go to work.
