The worst former mayor of New York City and a failed presidential candidate to boot might not be trying to seek office again (right now, thank god), but he is still running his mouth. Go home Rudy.
As Politico reports, Giuliani made his latest unwelcome remarks at a private dinner in New York Wednesday night for presidential hopeful Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, where his remarks were likely very welcome: it was attended by "about 60 right-leaning business executives and conservative media types."
Sounds like a fucking party! One that got even better when Giuliani said the following:
"I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America," Giuliani said during the dinner at the 21 Club, a former Prohibition-era speakeasy in midtown Manhattan. "He doesn't love you. And he doesn't love me. He wasn't brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country."
"I know this is a horrible thing to say," appears to be shorthand here for "a stupid, factually vague and bogusly patriotic thing to say." Let's not even get into the meaning behind "He wasn't brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up...."
Giuliani didn't stop there, bringing up Obama's recent accurate characterization of our world's history as if he is more learned about the past then the President:
I'm not sure how wrong the Crusades are. The Crusades were kind of an equal battle between two groups of barbarians. The Muslims and the crusading barbarians. What the hell? What's wrong with this man that he can't stand up and say there's a part of Islam that's sick?
