Remember September 11, 2001? Of course you do! Every American that was alive (and old enough to be aware of their surroundings) at the time remembers vividly the events of that day and the months/years that followed.
Well, every American except one, that is. That one American? Strangely, that one American is Rudy Giuliani. In case you don’t remember, Giuliani was the Mayor of New York City on 9/11/01.
In a speech during the Trump campaign back in August, 2016, while introducing Donald Trump at a campaign stop in Youngstown, Ohio, Giuliani decided to attack President Barack Obama by saying, “Under those eight years, before Obama came along, we didn’t have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack inside the United States,”
That’s right. The man who was the mayor of New York City when the largest attack on American soil in history happened in his city (one that was 100% perpetrated by radical Islamic terrorists) has forgotten it happened.
Later in the same speech, Giuliani apparently forgot what state he was in. That, or he didn’t know that Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence, was not the governor of Ohio. “You know better than I do what a great governor he is of your state,” Giuliani told the Ohio crowd. Pence was, of course, the governor of Indiana, not Ohio.
The Pence mix-up could probably be overlooked, if it wasn’t coupled with the insane omission of 9/11. But, even with 9/11 taken out of the mix, far more Americans died as a result of Radical Islamic Terrorists under President Bush than have under Obama, making Giuliani’s criticism of Obama even crazier.
