I am so torn about Rudy Giuliani. I feel he did great things after 9/11…but then he seemed to catch the crazies. And now that he is a Trump surrogate, he has simply lost his mind.
After the debate Monday night, Giuliani said that Hillary Clinton is “too stupid to be president.”
He based this on the fact that Hillary decided to stand by her husband and attack former White House intern Monica Lewinsky when news of a sexual relationship between the two broke in 1998. Giuliani defended Trump, labeling him a “feminist” because of how he treats the women he employs, and said he would have responded to Clinton’s attacks much more harshly than the GOP nominee did.
Giuliani said, “I sure would’ve talked about what she did to Monica Lewinsky, what that woman standing there did to Monica Lewinsky, trying to paint her as an insane young woman when in fact Monica Lewinsky was an intern. The president of the United States, her husband, disgraced this country with what he did in the Oval Office and she didn’t just stand by him, she attacked Monica Lewinsky. And after being married to Bill Clinton for 20 years, if you didn’t know the moment Monica Lewinsky said that Bill Clinton violated her that she was telling the truth, then you’re too stupid to be president.”
And as awful as that statement is…Trump totally agrees with it. Trump said Monday night and again Tuesday morning that he had considered raising the former president’s history of marital infidelities as a response to the former secretary of state’s attacks. He decided against it, he said, because the couple’s daughter, Chelsea Clinton, was in attendance and he though such an attack would be in poor taste.
Although Trump said he might use it at the next debates, saying, “Well, I may hit her harder certain ways. I really eased up because I didn’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings. So, I may hit her harder in certain ways.”
