Giuliani Out-Trumping Trump on Campaign Trail

Sunday, 09 Oct, 2016

RUDY GIULIANI: No, she was wrong to attack the victim. He was Time Magazine's man of the year. Crime has gone down in New York City even as the use of this ruinous technique has decreased, so reliance on it was meaningless except as a form of social control. The document showed Trump had claimed losses of $916 million from his casinos in Atlantic City, New York's Plaza Hotel, and an airline - losses that could offset future taxes owed, under Internal Revenue Service guidelines, according to the Times.

"For some odd reason, I feel a certain sadness (or is it pity?) for the legions of Trump ditto-heads who can no longer cling to the idea that their candidate for president is this "amazing, successful businessman" who will make America great again because "I know how to make great deals".

The CPPA, which represents 1,450 officers and staff, overwhelmingly voted to endorse the Republican nominee September 30, with Trump receiving 216 votes to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's 68 votes. That has been eroded by "a series of controversial police shootings", and while police "have a hard, dangerous, challenging job", that's "all the more reason to ensure that it's done to the highest standard".

Before that, he's proclaimed Hillary Clinton "too stupid" to be president because she remained with then-President Bill Clinton despite his affair with Monica Lewinsky, charged that President Barack Obama hates America and argued that there were no Islamic terrorist attacks on USA soil prior to Obama's presidency - seemingly forgetting the 9/11 World Trade Center attack that catapulted him to "America's mayor" hero status. When the campaign actually began, however, he was soundly rejected in New Hampshire and Florida and promptly dropped out. Giuliani considered running for a third term or delaying his departure from office (despite the law).

When Todd attempted to rebut Giuliani with a tweet intimating that the debate wasn't "Trump's best", it turned out it wasn't from Giuliani's Twitter account - but from someone posing as the former mayor. One problem: It came from a parody account. "I think it's fair game", Giuliani said. "I'm hearing too many bad stories", he told a mostly-white crowd in rural Pennsylvania, "and we can't lose an election because of you know what I'm talking about".

Attacking Clinton for attacking her husband's accusers is the slightly more nuanced approach that the Trump campaign is taking in bringing up Bill Clinton's past. "After she called him a racist and misogynist, xenophobic".
