WATCH: Rudy Giuliani Complains Assault Of “Most Famous Mayor” Isn’t Getting Enough News Coverage

Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, perhaps better known in recent days for his role as former personal attorney to the ex-President of the United States, currently with law licenses suspended in New York and Washington D.C., is pressing assault charges after he was tapped on the back while out in public. However, he’s not content with legal consequences for the perpetrator — he also wants a Fox News appearance.

Rudy Giuliani released a statement about the assault, which he describes as feeling like he was hit in the back with a boulder, and as not knocking him down, but hurting “tremendously.”

The New York Post adds some context from Rusy’s point of view, saying that the assailant was an employee of the store, where Giuliani had just exited a restroom and was greeted by supporters. Giuliani further told the publication that he wasn’t sure if he would have fallen down from the blow, if those around him hadn’t given support, and said in a different interview that if he wasn’t in such good shape, he’d probably have fallen and cracked his skull.

The individual further called Rudy a “scumbag” and told him that he’s complicit in the deaths of women that will inevitably result from the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

Giuliani called for police, and one Daniel Gill was taken into custody and charged with assault.

Then the surveillance video was released — and the mockery began. In the video, Giuliani seems to get barely more than a pat on the back, and definitely cannot be seen staggering forward multiple steps or needing support to avoid a cracked skull.

Responses range from laughing at the political figure for exaggerating the seriousness of the incident, to suggesting he should face charges for filing a false report.

Still, even a light tap, lacking consent, can fall under assault laws, and even public figures, even those who are seen as complicit in legislative efforts that are an assault on human rights, should be able to expect not to be touched without consent. (The verbal criticism is another story altogether.)

So, could Giuliani be satisfied, that he had “made an example” of a store employee who invaded his personal space?

Nope. Not at all.

Instead, he’s now complaining because the story didn’t get the Fox News coverage he wants.

“One of the only two living ex-mayors of New York [City], and probably, I’d say modestly, the most famous, was assaulted, and it’s not even on Fox. Even if Putin got assaulted, it’d be on Fox!”
