Rudy Giuliani, the ‘hero of 9/11’, came out firing insults at President Barack Hussein Obama. Giuliani made the McCarthy-esque accusation clear and loud: Obama has been a communist since he was 9 years old.
During today’s White House media brief the administration’s press secretary quoted Giuliani as ‘tarnishing his legacy’ by firing such accusations at the US President.
Giuliani, however, is standing by his strong words and remains convicted that Obama is, and essentially always has been, a communist. Giuliani also maintains Obama has no ‘love America’.
Fox News’ Megyn Kelly was excited to ask the former New York mayor about his commentary and the possibility of recalcitrance:
Megyn Kelly: Mr. Mayor, do you want to apologize for your comments?
Rudy Giuliani: Not at all, I want to repeat it. From all that I can see from this president, from all that I’ve heard of him. He apologizes for America. He criticizes America. He talks about the Crusades and how the Christians were barbarians. Leaves out the second half of the sentence that the Muslims were barbarians also. He sees Christians slaughtered and doesn’t stand up and hold a press conference although he holds a press conference for the situation in Ferguson. He sees Jews being killed for anti-Semitic reasons, doesn’t stand up and hold a press conference. This is an American president I’ve never seen before… I don’t feel it. I don’t feel it. I don’t feel this love for America.
“I’m saying, I do not detect in this man the same rhetoric or the same love in America that I detected in other American presidents including Democrats… I’m right about this. I do not withdraw my words. “
