Rudy Giuliani is new to Trump’s legal team, but not to public controversy. John Oliver examines his turbulent record as a lawyer, a politician, and an enemy to ferrets.

Last month I saw Giuliani on German TV hosting a documentary series about Murder Inc and the rise of the five families in New York in the early 20th century! And was introduced as an expert in Mafia Style behavior!!!
How far he got..
When I went to the last address I got. "Sorry Because of its privacy settings, this video cannot be played here. (button watch on Vieomo) John, it seems someone on your staff screwed up. Sure you can go to the redirect and see the videos but isn't it best that it play at the address? We;; at least this way you can see all 3 with one address, not that I bothered.
While I think the portrait that John Oliver paints of Giuliani's personal character is pretty accurate overall, he neglected to mention when he was talking about police crackdowns that it was during Giuliani's time that the overall crime rate in New York started steeply declining. It doesn't justify the loss of civil liberties, but it's an important part of Giuliani's legacy as mayor and the fact that he didn't address that is a major flaw.
It may be ageist, but this is what happens when you let elderly men run the show. Politics needs young blood because the future actually matters to us, not these old people who will just die soon anyway.
The news crews saying we just now lost respect for Giuliani is not remotely true. Giuliani was a horrible mayor before 9/11. He was probably on his way out and only was reelected because of the positive publicity he got for being the mayor during 9/11. He milked it for every bit of publicity he could get too. Football games, baseball games, he basically showed up anywhere he could to get shown on TV. America saw thru his charade a long time ago, that's why he never had a successful presidential campaign. He's a total fake, a farce. He'll shill for anyone who pays him enough, especially if the word republican is after their names.
Giuliani is no America's Mayor. He's a major accomplice in the 9/11 cover-up. He slipped and admitted to Peter Jennings of having prior knowledge of the 9/11 attacks, which he concealed from the public and from NYC firefighters and first forepersons. Then he went on to make millions from movies, books and speeches. Watch Giuliani Exposed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwEV3IusKW4
I hate how John gives no substantial political info anymore. Its just jokes now, when there was a healthy blend of the two the show was real, now it makes John look disingenuous/desperate for material.
Rezareth Then i guess you know better feminists than i do. How many of those feminists hold positions of power, for example political?
Yes, feminism suffers from the "anyone that claims to be a feminist is a feminist" problem, or as i like to call it "lack of gatekeeping".
However surveys show that most people, including most women, do not identify themselves as feminists, because feminism label has been made toxic by the fewer, but far worse, people that wave it around.
Its not that all feminists are bad, its that the public ones have destroyed the image of feminism. Im willing to believe that the "silent majority" are good people, but the "woke" ones certainly are not.
Strazdas Hm, funnily enough, none of the feminists I know actually likes Miss Dworkin or Google's ridiculous initiative (if I remember correctly, at least one of them actually made fun of that very same group).
Feminism is an ideology with a lot of variety, not a group with leadership which could exclude misandrists or TERFs. Pretty much everyone can identify as one (even popular author George R. R. Martin does), which makes it pretty inevitable that there are going to be some jerks. If you want to look at an ACTUALLY popular person with feminist (and generally left-wing) views here on YouTube, you might want to look at Natalie Wynn (aka ContraPoints). Or, you know, just read up on Feminist Theory.
I'm not claiming that absolutely every feminist is a good person. But saying that they're all bad is just as ridiculous.
Rezareth Im basing it on feminists in variuos instutitions from political ones to, for example, the google's "diversity group" (ironically 100% white). They are far more influencial that some videogames critic. A more classic example would be a popular feminist author Andrea Dworkin.
Strazdas So... Im sorry to ask this, but what data do you base that belief on?
If I don't know which specific feminists you are referring to, I have no way of knowing the validity of your argument…. So would you please tell me?
Rezareth I was not thinking of Anita Sarkeesian when i wrote that, i dont think she is anywhere near prominent enough compared to some other feminists (though she did spoke at UN).
The definition is not fitting the reality, unfortunatelly. I would love for feminists to follow the definition in the dictionary, however it appears that none of them do. Or rather, that feminism is incorrectly defined there.
He lobbied for my country's morbidly corrupt government, he took it upon himself to applaud the government's insidious plan to legalize corruption here, in the name of the US, Trump's people have shortly distanced themselves from that BS and said the obvious, that he has no authority to speak on behalf of the country. I honestly mostlt forgot about his existence, but this stunt he pulled (later admiting to lobbying and disclosing the sum her recieved but not from who it was or on behalf of who he did it, bht that part is clear)... But after that, man oh man, let me tell you the honest, pro EU and pro NATO people of my country really took the piss on this snake in a suit. Fuck lawyers and lobbying, but especialky, fuck him and people like him. This world can do better than this FFS.
The people who think the baby cages were a good idea and cry about illegals in the country are the same people who’d vote vote republicans like Don Blankenship and Roy Moore, and support people like Joe Arpaio. You know, convicted criminals. What trump will soon be.
I can't understand how he garnered any good will on 9/12. He declared the site safe for responders long way too early and as a result many of the real, unnamed heroes were left with debilitating and in some cases lethal diseases as a consequence. While he was posing on the cover of time magazine and soaking up the "good will", there are plenty of stories that went unheard about people paying a horrific, terrible price, likely further compounded through our ridiculous healthcare system. A real leader understands that he or she is responsible for the people under their command, and somehow this atrocious disregard for safety went for the most part unmentioned while he was being paraded as a hero. I get that leaders must make difficult decisions and that error is part of being human, but I am sickened by how easily the post 9/11 victims were forgotten by that "hero" the moment he saw opportunity to capitalize. The cost of his accrued good will he over paraded was concealed so callously. Mr Guilanni have you no shame? No decency sir?
This is a man who should be behind bars, not behind the camera. Politics aside, people matter, and they are worth more than the role of your campaign podium. Period.
Giuliani is just a Videodrome victim. Soon enough he'll have a stomach vagina in which he can pull guns out of to go along with his insane rantings and ravings about how Trump is a saint.
"Long live the new flesh!"
By "make them better" he means dumping countless billions of tons of pollution into the air and ocean, causing a (now known to be unstoppable) 220 foot rise in Sea Level, putting NYC far under water and....
making it a very romantic Venice like city of canals and gondolas, that, yes, will still be paddled by angry Afganis.
This civilization is OVER, grab your ferrets and go
HolyfuckingReligiousMafiasCow! If you live among such mentally deteriorating and genocidal racist rapist pathological liars as Trump-Republican Mafia here in the "god-given-greatest" religious fanatic East-European-Russian-Israeli-Saudi-oligarchs-operated U.S.A nearly all clearly are, and you are still not recording your daily surroundings in secret or openly with wearable cameras and pocket recorders? You are clearly far dumber than Trump's "fixer" Cohen, and Trump's Black pussy-grabbed "Bimbo dog" Omarosa!
Let's just fake prey n' hope that the emotionally retarded NY city-Mafia boss Giuliani, the International Nazi-Fuhrer Trump and the whole Banana NRA-Republicans can join these 2.3m people, the largest imprisoned population in the world, soon, or America is FUCKED! And the newest Mafia-run Communism-/Nazism-system:
Not being an American, I didnt know Giuliani at all b4 9/11. At first I was impressed with him, but quickly it began to look like, he was using it to promote himself. And, when in the years after 9/11 he milked it for every bit of personal gain, he could grab, I lost the last tiny bit of respect, I had for him. Again not being an American, I had assumed, that he had gone on to welldeserved oblivion. But no. He is now back in what seems to be his true self: A demented attention seeking gargoyle, who really needs to go back to sitting on buildings in stoneform.
