(New York, NY — October 3, 2016) – Multiple Republicans continue to defend presidential candidate Donald Trump (R-NY), proving the Orange Menace is not alone in making outrageous, unsubstantiated claims which stretch the bounds of imagination and credibility.
While speaking with ABC’s George Snuffleupagus on October 2, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY) channeled Squirrelhead Donald’s misogyny while praising the billionaire’s loss of $916 million in 1995:
- “Don’t you think a man who has this kind of economic genius is a lot better for the United States than a woman, and the only thing she’s ever produced is a lot of work for the FBI checking out her E-mails?”
The staggering financial loss, coupled with tax loopholes, means Trump likely paid no Federal taxes for a period of 18 years.
“What Trump did financially was indefensible,” said a political strategist, speaking on condition of anonymity. “Maybe it was defensible by tax law, but not defensible morally. Look at the amount of money this guy made and lost. How many of his employees and associates lost everything?
“And then he got off almost 20 years tax-free? How many public services were robbed of financial support because of that? Schools? Police? Firehouses? Roads? It’s staggering.
“Plus, it’s hard to assign the title of ‘genius’ to someone who could lose $916 million. In one year.”
The facts about the YUUUGE!!! financial loss were revealed in a story from the New York Times on Sunday; the newspaper came into three pages from Squirrelhead Donald’s 1995 tax returns – sent anonymously from New York’s Trump Tower address.
The New York Times remains tight-lipped about the source of the documents, saying only that an operative named “Orange Throat” is somehow involved.
Trump continues to insist that he cannot release his tax returns until an audit by the IRS is completed; the IRS continues to insist that an audit does not preclude anyone from sharing or releasing their tax returns.
Giuliani’s comments were also negatively noteworthy for his reference to Hillary Clinton (D-NY) as “a woman.”
“It sounds like Rudy places women in the same esteem as Squirrelhead Donald does,” said a spokesman for the National Organization of Women (NOW), speaking on condition of anonymity. “It’s yet another gaffe gift for Clinton. Just think back to [Senator John] McCain (R-AZ) in 2008!”
At the second presidential debate on October 7, 2008, held at Belmont University in Nashville, TN, McCain referred to President Obama (D-IL) in a dismissive and derogatory fashion – “that one” ‐ while referencing a Senate vote on a pork-laden energy bill:
- “Who voted for it? You might never know – that one. Who voted against it? Me.”
The reference – which many took to be a racist reference – didn’t help McCain’s election prospects; he lost to Obama four weeks later, 53% to 46%.
Sunday’s episode adds fuel to the fire for those who believe that Giuliani is losing his mind. At the Republican National Convention on July 18, he appeared to be erratic and agitated as he attempted to whip the loyal Trumpist Brownshirts in attendance into a collective, inbred frenzy.
“The way he screamed and flailed his arms reminded me more of presidential candidate Charles Manson (I-CA) than the mayor of the largest city in the United States,” said a political analyst, speaking on condition of anonymity.
And on August 15, Giuliani insisted that the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks never happened.
