There seems to be a mysterious brain rot spreading on the 2016 election campaign trail – and it seems former New York mayor, Rudy Giuliani is no exception. Last week, Giuliani was plugging for Trump at a rally in Ocala, Florida when his seemingly aged brain slipped into a brow-raising tirade against Hillary Clinton. Clinton and Giuliani both served the Empire State in the early millennia and both were at Ground Zero on September 11, 2001 – but not according to Mr. Giuliani. The senior moment began with Rudy spouting off an outrageous claim that Hillary was not even at Ground Zero:
“Don’t tell me, if you said that, that you remember Sept. 11, 2001. I remember Sept. 11, 2001. Yes, yes, you helped to get benefits for the people that were injured that day. But I heard her say one day she was there that day. I was there that day. I don’t remember seeing Hillary Clinton there. That was like when she said she had to run through gunfire. That turned out to be, what do we call it? A lie.”
In what can only be a brain-rotting senior moment, Giuliani makes a humorous remark about Clinton’s infamous Bosnian lie. It could have been a great attack – if only it were true. Almost instantly, photos of the two New York public servants together at Ground Zero surfaced.
Is this a single, irresponsible, unintelligible slip up? Or has “America’s Mayor” lost his mind. It is very possible that the mayor is really this absent minded – the Trump slip ups don’t confine themselves to that toupee. Giuliani apologized for the accusation soon after the photo surfaced, however, “I made a mistake. I’m wrong and I apologize”
This is not his only crazy moments. The 2016 election has infected the mayor — and his remarks make that apparent. Many people who have spoke with him have spoke with him recently. Reporter Rachel Maddow remarked, “[he] seems nuts!” Stephen Colbert refers to him as, “the former Rudy Giuliani”. It is true, that the hero America saw on the rubble of the World Trade Center is gone – infected by the rat race of this election. Insisting that the dead will vote for the Democrats. Whether it be a depressing shamble – or a knee slapping freak show, please keep in mind that these people on the campaign trail really believe what they say.
