Rudy Giuliani has been on quite a ride over the course of the last couple of decades, beginning with his rise to glory during the immediate aftermath of 9/11. Giuliani’s thoughtful yet stern approach to recovering from that horrific moment in history made him America’s mayor for years to come.
Now, however, Giuliani’s bullish nature is getting the best of him, as he continues to push back against the results of the 2020 election. With this sort of conversation turning gauche over the course of the last few weeks, Giuliani’s limelight is fading.
The latest to distance herself from Mr. Mayor is Ronna McDaniel, the head of the RNC.
Speaking with The New York Times, McDaniel indicated she thought it had been a mistake to allow Giuliani and Powell to make the claims about election rigging days after the vote at the RNC’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.
“When I saw some of the things Sidney was saying, without proof, I certainly was concerned it was happening in my building,” McDaniel told the newspaper. “There are a whole host of issues we had to deal with — what is the liability of the RNC, if these allegations are made and unfounded?”
McDaniel will almost certainly be facing an uphill climb in the coming days, as the Republican Party continues to tear itself in half over the looming impeachment trial of Donald Trump.
