Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will say pretty much anything to try and discredit Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. His latest attack goes so far as to evoke prisoner imagery to describe her.
“When I see her, I see her in an orange jumpsuit, I’m sorry,” he said Tuesday on “The Dom Giordano Program,” a Philadelphia radio show. “Or at least a striped one.”
He was talking about what it was like to listen to Clinton poke fun at her opponent, Republican nominee Donald Trump, whom he supports, during last week’s Al Smith dinner, apparently referencing the FBI investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. Ultimately, she was not indicted.
Giuliani has repeatedly vilified Clinton for the email server debacle, claiming she belongs in jail for her misdeeds.
The situation is “unbelievable” and “completely screwed up,” he said. “I am heartbroken. Heartbroken to see what has happened to the Justice Department and the FBI.”
In the interview, he yet again accused Clinton of lying about not knowing that certain documents were classified and confidential.
“She should be going somewhere for memory lessons, not running for president of the United States,” he said.
Giuliani’s comments come after he accused the Clinton campaign of “cooking” the FBI report earlier Tuesday on Fox News.
The former New York mayor is one of the few Republican politicians to have stuck by Trump, especially in the wake of a leaked 2005 “Access Hollywood” hot-mic recording of Trump saying he is entitled to grab women “by the pussy” ― in other words, sexually abuse them ― because he is famous.
Clinton is currently polling at 49 percent, while Trump is trailing at 41 percent, according to HuffPost Pollster.
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
