Rudy Giuliani: Trump’s Response to COVID was Like my Response to 9/11
It may be hard for some people to remember, but Rudy Giuliani was at one time, the most popular mayor in America. The now Trump lawyer was dubbed “America’s Mayor” thanks to his leadership after the September 11th attacks.
The former New York city leader, though, has taken a dark turn since those days. Giuliani appeared on Sean Hannity’s show on Friday night to discuss 9/11 and Donald Trump.
The Trump sycophant began by discussing his reaction to the terrorist attacks:
“I didn’t tell them how many people died. I said it’s too much for you to bear right now. I never told them what was really going on at ground zero, how terrible it was, what we were really recovering. I didn’t tell them that New York City was in danger of being flooded for three weeks because the slurry wall had been breached and if we didn’t get that fixed and if we had had a hurricane—we had an evacuation plan ready—but I wasn’t going to frighten them with that.”
Giuliani then tried to tie that reaction to Trump’s COVID response. “If you’re a leader, you take things on you, you don’t just spit everything out to people. The president did a terrific job. President Trump had about as good of a response as any president could possibly have had under those circumstances.”
