Rudy Giuliani in Trump’s inner circle

A Washington Post article explains that Rudy Giuliani is in Trump’s “inner circle.”

Way back on December 1, after watching Giuliani on a news show, I observed that Giuliani was very friendly to Trump.

But Giuliani has not yet officially endorsed Trump or anyone else. He has only said that he’d vote for Trump over Cruz..

A Roll Call article from January reported that Giuliani was friendly with Trump, Christie, Rubio and Bush. I guess, as of now, he only has to choose between Rubio and Trump.

  1. Two or three months ago, I googled ‘Trump Guilliani’ selected ‘videos’ and watched a number of them. Guilliani may not have officially endorsed him but it’s very obvious.

  2. So where does Giuliani land in a Trump administration? Could be Attorney General or National Security Advisor.


    February 22, 2016 at 9:17 am

    • National Security Advisor

  3. “Rudy Giuliani in Trump’s inner circle”

    Well, this makes me feel better………………(s)

  4. Rudy is great but he won’t help Trump outside of NY, which is an irredeemably blue state.

  5. It’s best for Trump if his Republican endorsements come as late as possible.


    February 22, 2016 at 9:25 am

  6. I hate Hillary Clinton probably more than any other public figure, but if the GOPc succeeds in making foam boy Robio the nominee over Trump, I might have to sit this election out.

  7. Giuliani’s time has passed. He doesn’t have that golden aura he once possessed. His endorsement no longer carries the weight it once had.

    Remember the rest of the USA is not the tristate area where white people are still appreciative of Giuliani for cleaning up NYC.

    • Endorsements from mainstream well-known politicians would help Trump, and Giuliani falls into that category.

      Of course, no one endorsement can magically make people vote for someone they don’t want to vote for. Jeb had lots of endorsements. But in Trump’s case, some endorsements from people like Giuliani would help those on the fence to vote for him.

      • Giuliani won’t carry huge influence outside of the Northeast. He can help a little to “normalize” Trump as a candidate, but Trump doesn’t need to be associated too closely with mainline Republicans because that ruins his whole “outsider” persona.


        February 22, 2016 at 10:45 am

      • Right. Trump currently has zero senators, zero representatives and zero governors out of >300 Republicans in those positions.

        This is astounding to me. Sarah Palin is almost his only politician friend even now after leading the Republicans for most of a year. Lion, how do feel about her now?

        Trump is thirsty for support from them. He got Scott Brown’s endorsement in Massachusetts and just polled at 50% there, to 16% for the next competitor.

        Trump hasn’t peaked because his bandwagon is basically empty of famous people.


        February 22, 2016 at 10:49 am

      • Yes. A few Republican endorsements would go a long way in generating the “social proof” that Trump needs to close this thing out. So far, Scott Brown is the biggest name to endorse him.

      • I think Rudy wants AG or director of FBI. My VP preference is still Scott Brown.

    • Quite ironic, many liberal Whites dislike Guiliani, but love the present status of Manhattan, one of their current strongholds.


      February 22, 2016 at 4:12 pm

  8. When is Jeff Sessions going to endorse Trump?

    Even Nate Silver is mystified by Trump’s lack of endorsements from current Republican officeholders.

    • They are probably cowed by threats from GOP donors and the RNC.


      February 22, 2016 at 11:00 am

    • I don’t think Sessions would make a move until Cruz is out of the race.

    • You’d think a congressman in a solidly pro-Trump district would stick his neck out with a Trump endorsement to ensure re-election. I too am surprised it hasn’t happened yet.


      February 22, 2016 at 12:26 pm

    • Check the today’s RCP polls. Trump is rocking Georgia, Illinois, and Massachusetts.

      He and Hillary will be set for their party’s nominations by the end of March.

      February 22, 2016 at 8:47 pm

    • With these numbers Trump doesn’t need Sessions’ endorsement.

    • He was endorsed by the Lt. Gov. of South Carolina. If you noticed the older lady and man behind him on the podium. Trump warmly thanked him and pointedly contrasted this endorsement with Haley, w/o mentioning Haley by name. The audience erupted. I think her days in politics are numbered.


      February 23, 2016 at 8:15 am

  9. This is great news and will help in the Tr-State area.

    I’m waiting for Sessions too. I really like his policies.


    February 22, 2016 at 10:55 am

  10. Enjoy this insanity from a Liberal. He actually recommends Democrats register as Republicans and vote for Rubio!

    Seriously, will some liberals literally kill themselves if Trump wins the nomination?

  11. The Dilbert guy, Scott Adams, argues that Mark Cuban would be it, best VP:


    February 22, 2016 at 12:36 pm

    • I disagree. Most people never heard of Mark Cuban.

      The best pick for VP is always someone who campaigned for president but lost. They are are a known quantity with name recognition and familiarity. Trump’s best choices for VP are Kasich or Guiliani for these reasons. Or even Scott Walker.

      • Like Hillary Clinton, Giuliani has done a lot of sketchy things over the last 15 years to make money. This will become an issue in the general election. Also Blacks hate Giuliani and I think Trump has a chance of getting 20% of the Black vote. This sounds trivial but Democrats need 95%+ of the Black vote to win 4-5 swing states.

        Kasich is good because he is conservative and gets shit done. I also approve of his expanding medicaid. Like Trump I approve of limited healthcare assistance to the poor. Just keep Kasich away from immigration policy.

        Condi Rice, Kay Bailey Hutchinson, and Nikki Haley are also good choices. Choosing Nikki Haley is a good way to reassure establishment GOP that he will treat them well if they stop opposing him.


        February 22, 2016 at 2:55 pm

      • The problem is finding a senior Republican who agrees with him (or will pretend to) on his two signature issues: Trade and Immigration. That’s virtually no one. Maybe Sessions.

        February 22, 2016 at 5:56 pm

      • Condi Rice, Kay Bailey Hutchinson, and Nikki Haley are also good choices.

        God, how embarrassing! What is it that compels so many people to think like this? Submissiveness? Timidity? Guilt?

        Condi Rice is a Bush family hack, a pro Iraq war failure. She’s a black female, great. So now you can prove you aren’t racist or sexist by picking her.

        KBH, a Texas Republican hack, a nothing. But at least we aren’t sexist, amright!

        Nikki Haley? Here we go again! Lets prove we aren’t racist and sexist by picking someone who endorsed Rubio over Trump in SC!!

        Trump should just pick the Handsome White Devil, ex military Scott Brown and get on with it.

        People will vote for or against Trump not his VP.


        February 22, 2016 at 7:12 pm

      • @Rifleman – I know they’re hacks. I purposefully chose hacks because you need an insider to get things done and you need to co-opt the GOP elite. What good is a Trump presidency if he gets nothing done?

        Trump seems like a dumb blowhard. An intelligent, feminine woman with “insider” credentials balances out the ticket. What does Scott Brown bring to the table? He lost 2 elections in 4 years.


        February 22, 2016 at 10:41 pm

      • VPs don’t bring in votes. They only lose votes if they are a bad pick.

        February 22, 2016 at 11:47 pm

      • I have to go with Rifle.

        Condi Rice: Neocon open borders hack. This one actually hurts the ticket because she turns off so many voters by reminding them of W.

        KBH: Open borders.

        Haley: Traitor, anti white, open borders bitch. Trump hates her and for good reason.

        The best choice is Susana Martinez. 2nd best choice is Kasich. 3rd best choice is Sandoval and 4th best is probably Ivanka.
