For the last year or so, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has been front and center throughout Donald Trump’s controversies. The most recent situation featuring the President’s sometimes lawyer had him in the Ukraine, looking to dig up dirt on Joe Biden.
Giuliani often appears on cable news networks and often speaks on the stations in hyperbole. That use of hyperbole continued on Friday when Giuliani told students that Democrats wanted to “execute them.”
The former Mayor made the comments while speaking at a Turning Point USA event on Thursday.
First, Giuliani said the impeachment of Trump was un-American. He told the students, “This is America. You know where that happens? That happens in countries where there are dictatorships, and they’re moving us in that direction.”
The former lawyer also spoke about the legal ramifications of the case. “The whole impeachment process just trashed the Constitution,” he said. “No right to counsel, no right to call witnesses, no right of confrontation, no right to even have your lawyer there and investigate all the lawyers. They wanna put Barr in prison and they wanna execute me.”
Giuliani then bragged about his former life as the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. “Good luck by the way,” he continued. “The Mafia tried that. And the FARC. The Mafia, the FARC, and the word you can’t say, Islamic extremist terrorists, have all taken out contracts of one kind or another to kill me, and my answer is good luck. I just get angrier and I go after you more.”
