For the sake of President Trump’s reelection, someone needs to put a muzzle on Rudy Giuliani for the next two weeks.
The former NYC Mayor has been very much in the public eye as of late, but not necessarily in too many positive, constructive ways. In reality, it seems as though Rudy is attempting to take up the mantle of the recently-pardoned Roger Stone as the political agent provocateur du jour, but it just isn’t working out so well.
It was only a few days ago that Rudy, in what he believed was a defense of his actions, stated that the chances he was working with a Russian spy were “50/50 at best”, as if this was some sort of positive spin on the situation.
And now, as the mainstream media continues to remain reluctant to run with his story about Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop, Giuliani is suggesting that, even if the laptop doesn’t contain factual information, the American people should be hearing about it anyway.
Appearing on AM1100 The Flag, a North Dakota radio show, the former New York City mayor grumbled about social media companies initially restricting access to the Post stories, saying it “reminds me of the communist and the Nazis.” From there, he said the story should be spread regardless of its accuracy. “They’ve set up an Iron Curtain so you can’t get out the New York Post story which I happened to know is 100 percent accurate,” Giuliani declared. “But even if it isn’t accurate, the American people are entitled to know it.”
Giuliani recently acknowledged that he specifically peddled the salacious Hunter Biden laptop story to the New York Post because they wouldn’t “spend all the time they could to try to contradict it before they put it out.” Other news outlets have reportedly passed on reporting on the laptop material for fear that it can’t be verified and may be part of a targeted disinformation effort.
Rudy appears to be filling a role similar to a toddler in the kitchen: We get it, you’re trying to help, but it’s just not working.
