Rudy Giuliani: My Thug Felon Daddy Made Me Love America

Posted by Phoenix Woman on February 21, 2015

Rudolph Giuliani, of course, knows no shame, or the man known as “Noun Verb 9/11” would have died of it long ago.

That being said, I am circulating this Wayne Barrett piece from the New York Daily News, in the hope that enough people see it to put paid to any further fantasies Giuliani might have about reviving his political career, not to mention his White House dreams:

Rudy Giuliani knows a lot about love.

Ask Regina Peruggi, the second cousin he grew up with and married, who was “offended” when Rudy later engineered an annulment from the priest who was his best man on the grounds, strangely enough, that she was his cousin. Or ask Donna Hanover, the mother of his two children, who found out he wanted a separation when he left Gracie Mansion one morning and announced it at a televised press conference.

Or ask Judi Nathan, his third wife, whom he started dating while still married to Hanover and New York mayor. In two SUVs, he and an entourage of six or seven cops traveled 11 times to Judi’s Hamptons getaway at a taxpayer cost of $3,000 a trip. That’s love.

Rudy knows so much about love that he declared the other day that President Obama “doesn’t love you” and “doesn’t love me” at a private party of GOP fat cats.

There’s more:

Giuliani went so far as to rebuke the President for not being “brought up the way you were and the way I was brought up through love of this country,” a bow no doubt to the parenting prowess of Harold Giuliani, who did time in Sing Sing for holding up a Harlem milkman and was the bat-wielding enforcer for the loan-sharking operation run out of a Brooklyn bar owned by Rudy’s uncle.

Though Rudy cited Harold throughout his public life as his model (without revealing any of his history), he and five Rudy uncles found ways to avoid service in World War II. Harold, whose robbery conviction was in the name of an alias, made sure the draft board knew he was a felon. On the other hand, Obama’s grandfather and uncle served. His uncle helped liberate Buchenwald, which apparently affected him so deeply he stayed in the family attic for six months when he returned home.

Again, if only Rudy Giuliani could feel shame.

    One thing’s certain about Rudy Giuliani’s declaration that Obama doesn’t love America: It got him way more headlines and airtime than if he hadn’t said it.

    Which, I’m certain, was the purpose of saying it.

    • Oh, of course. And the vast majority of that airtime was favorable to him. (Print and online media are another story. The NYDN ran the scrumptious takedown from which I quoted, and they used to be among Rudy’s biggest cheerleaders.)

    Thanks Charles and I always will remember when he, girlfriend, and wife were living together in the mansion. Strange group all around.
