Rudy Giuliani, who used to be known as America’s Mayor, realizing he’s now just a fool and a punchline:
“I don’t care. I am aware of that. And what’s happened is, our country has gone off the rails…I’m exactly the same person. They changed! I don’t think I’ve ever done an interview drunk. I mean, I drink normally. I like Scotch, I drink Scotch. I’m not an alcoholic. I’m a functioning, I probably function more effectively than 90 percent of the population.”
Little Freudian slip there, Rudy. You seldom ever pass a bar without going in.
George W. Bush, speaking about terrorism at a 9/11 remembrance ceremony in Shanksville:
“We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within. There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit, and it is our continuing duty to confront them.”
Okay, I’m glad he compared terrorists flying planes into towers to domestica terrorists flying flagpoles thorough windows of the nation’s capital, but let’s be clear that a lot of the ills in this country can be traced back to W’s Big Lie about Saddam Hussein and 9/11 and getting us into Afghanistan..
Pat Toomey, GOP Senator from Pennsylvania, urging his party not to nominate Thing 45 in 2024:
“I think that the future of our party is to be a party of ideas, and not to be a party about any one individual, and I think we will learn a lot from the next set of primaries. I think after what happened post-2020 election, I think the president’s behavior was completely unacceptable, so I don’t think he should be the nominee to lead the party in 2024.”
Nice vanilla statement. Howsabout being a little more forceful if you believe Thing 45 is unfit to be president, huh?
