The fool
"The Nation's Jester" by Mike Stevens

Sitting here wondering what would make a man throw away the nations' goodwill? On 9/11, that horrible day that suddenly, radically, and permanently changed the world, New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani earned the nation's respect, his actions and words transcended politics and helped calm a reeling nation in shock. He was a Republican, and, as a very liberal person, that was one hell of a trick, but he, along with President Bush, managed to do it.

Bush immediately lost his by his ill-advised invasion of Iraq, a nation that had nothing to do with 9/11. Saddam Hussein was a horrible leader who was not innocent of committing atrocities against his own and other people, but had nothing to do with 9/11.

Now, Guliani's lost any respect he'd built up by aligning himself with THE worst president we've yet endured, he's peddling in wing-nut crazy conspiracy theories and trying to defend Trump, who's indefensible. I can't, and I never will, understand what made him throw away built-up respect for having much of the nation reviling him, along with the runaway-ego, clueless, dangerous man he works for? Attention? Feeling important? Whatever the reason, Rudy, I hope it's important enough to Trump your legacy, how you'll be remembered. You've gone from being remembered as a strong, sane leader that all of America looked to for leadership, to a laughingstock, a sad fool. All I can say is I hope whatever your reason, it's worth it.
