Be you, Rudy Giuliani. 9/11 happens, you become Americas Mayor. Name a job. It’s yours. Name a political office. It’s yours. Name the Sinecure. It’s yours. Piss it all away for Booze and Trump.

u/MississippiJoel Sep 25 '22

He did really poorly in his run for president, so it wasn't quite "name your job," but you're pretty well spot on.

u/SAugsburger Sep 25 '22

This. Giuliani's Presidential run kinda exposed that by 2008 that even among Republicans his 9/11 bounce in respect, prestige, etc. had largely expired.

Katz told Giuliani earlier that he was in default for not having filed papers in response to Judith’s allegations. The former mayor conceded the error but said, “I’m being sued in ten different cases. I’m getting ready for two massive hearings,” the NY Post reported.

“It’s totally my fault,” he said. “I don’t know how to emphasize to you the pressures.”

Yet he had time to try to rig an election and make tons of public appearances. He also put the other "ten" cases on himself. Nobody else to blame but yourself.

Why is Giuliani such a mess? What happened to him?

A character in Lucky Number Slevin says to another one, "If someone calls you horse, you curse them out. The second person calls you a horse, you shove 'em. If a third person calls you a horse, maybe it's time to buy a saddle."

Said by The Rabai to the title character Slevin Kelevra. Such a great movie.

17

u/APoopingBook Sep 24 '22

The Rabai's hubris was also responsible for his own downfall. If he had stopped and asked "why do YOU say you're not the horse we think you are?" he very likely could've figured out what was happening before it was too late.

He was probably the most level-headed character in the mix, but still was so easily fooled by appealing to his own self-importance.

Absolutely awesome movie.

He also had time to go on the Masked Singer.

If he had time to contract himself to a celebrity reality show and spend days being fitted into costumes and rehearsing a damn song, he had time to sort his own dang problems (and apparently 'investigate' election fraud, but he certainly doesn't show any inclination to try anything).

There truly are few others who have had such a massive fall from grace. Like, we've seen people crash and burn before. Jared, the Subway Guy, for example. But he wasn't Rudy Giuliani levels, not at his height. From America's Mayor to....whatever this is. Granted, almost all of that was him merely being mayor during 9/11, but anyone with a sense of sensibility would've seen that and just milked that until retirement. Imagine having that golden ticket, to just do whatever you want with your life, just don't go crazy, and you're set. Rudy fucked that up.

u/atheistinabiblebelt Sep 24 '22

Replying to you but also for u/sexy_squid89...

For as much attention as that "venue" got, I don't believe many people actually saw it live... But I did.

I don't recall what I was thinking in that moment but I remember specifically checking all the news channels to find that speech. There was only one that was broadcasting it live that I can remember. I believe it was newsmax. I remember flipping it on and their audio was love during set up, like you could just hear a couple crew casually chatting in the background. The video was so unstable I swear it was some guy just pointing his phone at the "stage'.

I don't believe any right wing networks spun it at all, just pretended it didn't exist. I was absolutely dumbfounded watching it, trying to make some connection.

Really probably the highlight of the trump administration for me, also the only speech given by that administration that I ever watched live.

You ever wonder about the other 50 areas? Like, everybody always talks about area 51, but, what's at area 37? And how many areas ARE there? Seems kind of odd to stop at 51. What about area 52? Is there an area 69? I don't think there is an area 69, because I feel like it would be the source of constant internet jokes. Maybe they stopped at 60? or 55? Is that where we get highway speed limits from?

Area 51 doesn't interest me, because it's supposed to be the most top secret government base, yet everybody knows about it. What DOES interest me is all the questions it raises about it's existence.

It's even more astonishing because as a former mayor of NYC, Rudy has known all along exactly how Trump is and still decided that he'd hitch his wagon to the Trump train.

u/mces97 Sep 24 '22

I don't get why he ever had that good of a reputation. I'll give him credit for breaking up the mafia, but that was the Italian mob. This set up for the Russian mob to take over. Which be didn't do shit about and probably gave and got favors.

Secondly, he used 9/11 to prop himself up, just cause he was mayor at the time. The reality is the world trade center was bombed in the early 90s. Security experts said a command center should not be in the towers. It was. Lots of first responders couldn't communicate. Many died.

Side note, I got an attendance award and he was supposed to give a speech to us. He didn't. But he walked past me, and he smelled like onions.

He's broke, allegedly. Trump owes him a lot of money but hasn't paid him, allegedly.

u/ProtoplanetaryNebula Sep 24 '22

Trump has to be on cash up front terms with every single lawyer or provider of any service these days, he has such a reputation for not paying.

u/landon912 Sep 24 '22

How can’t they get a lien on Trump tower or some shit? Send it to collections? Wage garnishment?

I don’t get how Trump can just not pay and face no problems.

After 9/11 he could have just rode that wave for the rest of his life and his reputation would have been great. But, unfortunately for him, he’s an idiot.

Outside of NYC his reputation was good, due to fairy tales told by the media. He was a horrible mayor, a real fascist and a nasty asshole.

u/insane__knight Sep 24 '22

I'm one of those ignorant people you're talking about. I saw him as a leader after the 9/11 attacks but never stepped foot in new york nor had any idea what kind of mayor he really was.

102

u/Stock-Bobcat Sep 24 '22 edited Sep 24 '22

He wasn’t even much of leader after 9/11 he was replaced by Bloomberg 3 months later, he just happened to be the guy sitting in the chair when the attack happened. Didn’t do anything special during or after really Not to mention the fact that many of his decisions leading up to the attack made the situation worse. Such as moving the city’s emergency command center into the World Trade Center complex despite it already being the target of a terrorist attack in 1993. This decision greatly hurt coordination and communication between police and firefighters on 9/11 since the staff of the office had to evacuate during the attack. Edit- typo

Same here. I was in High School when 9/11 happened and, on the surface at least, the media portrayed him as a hero. I had nothing but good thoughts about the guy.

He was a US attorney who took down mob bosses and drug lords, he was America's Mayor© that held us together during 9/11. All he had to do was sit back, shut the fuck up, and enjoy ignorant people like me thinking he was a hero.

NOPE, fuck that, he had to team up with Trump, sponsored by Four Seasons Landscaping, and run his reputation into the fucking ground so hard and so fast.

u/_portia_ Sep 24 '22

Understandable, how would you know unless you lived there? He was a dick. He did things like enact a policy of making cops arrest the homeless for no reason, just because they were homeless. So the tourists wouldn't have to see them. He is a lot like Trump, he bullies people and institutions because he's an insecure little jerk. He threatened to cut off city funding to the Brooklyn Museum because they were showing a painting he decided was offensive to his catholic "faith". Meanwhile, he was openly cheating on his then-wife #2 with future ex-wife #3. He'd take his gumar out to public events while his wife and kids were at home. This stuff is the tip of the iceberg, he's just a pos.

He's truly earned every bit of his tragic fall - but at the same time, it truly is tragic.

I read a profile of him in Rolling Stone from early in 2020 - even before the election fuckery and his brain melting on live TV. He used to be a guy with ambition and ego, yeah, but also someone who busted his hump as a prosecutor, and turned down every offer of favors from rich fuckwits because he didn't want to be in their pockets.

Ten years on from that, he was the mayor of New York and a world-famous hero, even if it was undeserved.

Twenty years, he was known for being a bit sleazy and one-note about his great heroic moment, but rich beyond the dreams of avarice.

Thirty years on, he's burned through all his money, lost his law license, babbles about USB drives being passed around like heroin, has humiliated himself being a very public drunk and his children won't speak to him anymore.

He's earned every bit of scorn, but still...goddamn.

He didn’t have a great reputation. He famously betrayed first responders, had the worst preparation plans and didn’t lift a finger like Jon Stewart to help those he was directly responsible for getting sick.

u/TheAb5traktion Sep 24 '22

He also encouraged police brutality towards NYC's black population. There were protests against him because he encouraged police brutality. He was also a lawyer for Purdue Pharma and helped hide their involvement in the opioid epidemic, at least until their involvement could no longer be hidden.
