Giuliani: “People were celebrating, he’s right about that”
I found the entire interview with Rudy Giuliani which aired on CNN this morning. Alisyn Camerota looks like she’s momentarily surprised that Giuliani actually confirmed that there were Muslims in New York City celebrating 9/11. He also says that the number was “10, 12, 30, 40.”
I found Giuliani very political, for lack of a better word. He refused to say anything bad about Trump. Camerota tries to get Giuliani to say that Trump is lying because Trump said thousands were celebrating, but Giuliani refuses to agree that Trump is a liar. He says he doesn’t know how many people were celebrating in New Jersey, but that if Trump saw it then there must be a “tape of it somewhere and if it shows up it will corroborate him and if it doesn’t show up it’s going to make him look really bad.”
Unlike a lot of other Republicans who are saying that Trump can’t win, Giuliani says that Trump has a chance to win, and he also says that Trump benefited the Republican Party by bringing a lot more attention to the race and bringing in a lot of viewers to the debates, giving all of the candidates a better opportunity to make their case to the people.
I wonder if he’s trying to hedge the possibility of being selected by Trump to be his Vice President, but at the same time avoid endorsing him and getting the entire Republican establishment mad at him?
