🔪When Trump turns on Rudy Giuliani.
[With Rudy Giuliani, What You See is What You Get]
Giuliani has "tragically plummeted from greatness."
💥But the article points out that Rudy Giuliani was walking the streets on 9/11 because his Emergency Center—which he insisted on locating on the 23rd floor of 7 World Trade Center—in spite of advice from the Police Commissioner was gone.
🇺🇸9/11: he stepped forward as a leader to the entire country.
🌆Giuliani on Saturday Night Live: “NYorkers are unified. We will not yield to terrorism. We will not let our decisions be made out of fear. We choose to live our lives in freedom."
🤡"Can we be funny?" he deadpanned.
🎯"Why start now?" Giuliani answered.
🇺🇸This arguably started the healing phase for the entire country.
Authors/journalists Wayne Barrett and Dan Collins interviewed John Farmer, the 9/11 Commission’s senior counsel, and "punctured" the image of America’s mayor.
🚨A committee was formed. It concluded they should use the same emergency frequency & practice together.
👨🚒👮♂️The 9/11 Commission conclusion: “Any attempt to establish a unified command on 9/11 would have been frustrated by the lack of communication and coordination among responding agencies.”
🚿Later, he explained that he was taking a shower with a "cramp on my leg" and hit his head on the glass door.
⚡️Then there's the not so obvious scandal. His first marriage was to his second cousin!!
💔It was annulled.
🏛️Remember this? Giuliani ran for U.S. Senate for a while against Hillary Clinton in 2000, then when "reports showed Clinton gaining upstate and generally outworking Giuliani," he dropped out.
💬Giuliani was telling stories "with a bemused smile & a NY twinkle in his eye, almost like Sinatra ribbing Dean Martin at a cabaret."
Maybe the myth of Rudy Giuliani as "America's Mayor" was a "Grand Illusion" afterall.
