A Conversation With Rudy Giuliani Over Bloody Marys at the Mark Hotel
“If they’re investigating me, they’re a**holes,” he said.
I spent the afternoon with Rudy Giuliani.
Giuliani arguing that he is “more of a Jew” than a literal Holocaust survivor is the logical conclusion of Trumpist Jews’ argument that liberal and left wing Jews (the majority of American Jews!) are not really Jewish.
Sorry but the clear best part of this story is Giuliani asking if David Holmes (pictured right) could possibly be an elderly man with a hearing problem
Giuliani, during interview with
: “I have no business interests in Ukraine." Giuliani, during same interview: "I’ve done two business deals in Ukraine. I’ve sought four or five others."
he’s tightening his circle and doesn’t trust anyone anymore as he proceeded to unfurl himself over cocktails after his Ukraine trip.
in which Rudy Giuliani shows up for the interview with his fly unzipped, dribbles saliva onto his sweater, declares “i know how not to commit crimes,” and says the “asshole” federal prosecutors investigating his activities are jealous of him
The line where Giuliani sets himself up as the arbiter of who is Jewish because Soros - who survived the Holocaust - is liberal is worth reading through this piece for.
All I could think about while reading this piece was how much Rudy Giuliani reminds me of Martha Mitchell, the wife of Nixon’s attorney general who would call reporters late at night with her husband’s papers in one hand and a highball in the other.
Meanwhile, at 1 Saint Andrews Plaza, a group of AUSAs are struggling hard not to pin this to their office walls.
"I’m more of a Jew than Soros is." - RUDY to
piece is riveting. It’s sad what has become of “America’s Mayor”: When his mouth closed, saliva leaked from the corner and crawled down his face through the valley of a wrinkle. He didn’t notice, and it fell onto his sweater.
Read this interview with Rudy Giuliani, and then reflect that this bunch of stumblebums and goons are the people undermining our national security while thinking they've outfoxed every intelligence service in the world, including ours.
Wayne Barrett would be so proud to still be throwing Rudy into a rage all these years later. What a gift. Merry Christmas, Wayne!

There are times when it’s appropriate to quote a particular morsel of a longer piece because it’s emblematic of the whole thing. In this instance, one must read
’s entire story to appreciate how low Giuliani has sunk.
This paragraph of Rudy Giuliani having an episode is getting attention for obvious reasons, but also note that he's calling recently elected reformer district attorney's "anarchists"
is very good at letting Rudy be Rudy
A small thing in the grand scheme of
's many crimes, but look at how he laments not being able to either drive and/or park sidewalks like he used to, a "perk of his past life as mayor."
Entertaining, yes -- but also sad and tragic. With every interview, every antic, his dignity ebbs away.
If you don't think Giuliani has come unmoored, you very well may do so after reading this
This bit from Rudy Giuliani is a nice distillation of the way the language of anti-semitism has come to function on the right.
I don’t know why Rudy keeps talking to
, but we should all be glad he does. This is hilarious from beginning to end. (And revealing.)
a selection of my favorite quotes from this giuliani interview. “They look like Miami people" "He doesn’t go to religion" "And my attitude about my legacy is Fuck it” "All of the malts." "I know how not to commit crimes" "Maybe he didn’t have it in."
"I'm more Jewish than those Elders of Zion"
's Rudy Giuliani interview is truly an incredible journey
The physical comedy in this Giuliani interview is 😘
The difference between me day drinking and Rudy Giuliani day drinking is I don’t do it on the record with
and say things like George Soros is a terrible Jew who doesn’t go to religion, though I will on occasion channel Ron Burgundy. Ye gods.
Rudy Giuliani’s got this all under control, by
. Very nicely done.
In Trump’s DEFENSE, Rudy says: “typical Trump; he withholds aid till the last minute until he makes them beg for it.”

What kind of judgement does retaining Rudy Giuliani as your personal attorney suggest?
RG: "I know how not to commit crimes", but he DOES know how to move hate and tales of conspiracy into the frontlines of defense. #TrumPathetic.
who said “Soros is hardly a Jew. I’m more of a Jew than Soros is." Giuliani, a Catholic, reveals himself in the interview to be "a horrible human being" – his description of Soros. Look in the mirror, Rudy
Rudy Giuliani seems to be quite like Michael Scott
“I’ve been doing this for 50 years. I know how not to commit crimes."
tech angle: "He took out his phone to show me how Google Translate works."
