The Mayor of 9/11, Rudy Giuliani, somehow forgot that the September 11th, 2001, terrorist attacks occurred in his city, on his watch while introducing Donald Trump today at a rally in Youngstown, Ohio.
In a deeply offensive and outrageous attempt to smear President Barack Obama, Giuliani declared that no terrorist attacks had occurred in the United States before Obama took office, somehow ignoring the fact that he’s been exploiting the deaths of 3,000 Americans to further his own political agenda for a decade – to the point that Joe Biden once quipped that all Giuliani ever said was “a noun, a verb, and 9/11.”
The internet, of course, had a field day with his mind-boggling remarks.
All Giuliani has now is a noun and a verb. Thanks Obama. https://t.co/PK7iOr9sUX
