Megyn Kelly: Mr. Mayor, do you want to apologize for your comments?
Rudy Giuliani:Not at all, I want to repeat it.
Classic Rudy. He went on:
From all that I can see from this president, from all that I’ve heard of him. He apologizes for America. He criticizes America. He talks about the Crusades and how the Christians were barbarians. Leaves out the second half of the sentence that the Muslims were barbarians also. He sees Christians slaughtered and doesn’t stand up and hold a press conference although he holds a press conference for the situation in Ferguson. He sees Jews being killed for anti-Semitic reasons, doesn’t stand up and hold a press conference. This is an American president I’ve never seen before… I don’t feel it. I don’t feel it. I don’t feel this love for America.
Megyn Kelly again tried to get Giuliani to backtrack (at Murdoch’s direction?), but Rudy would not, bringing up Obama’s disturbing upbringing and the reverend who married him and Michelle and baptized their daughters:
“I’m saying, I do not detect in this man the same rhetoric or the same love in America that I detected in other American presidents including Democrats… I’m right about this. I do not withdraw my words. “
Right after, on Hanity, radio host Mark Levin backed him up using Obama’s own words:
“Rudy’s exactly right, and I would add, and I’ve said this many years on my radio program, when somebody says they want to fundamentally transform America, well, then you must not love America. It’s like saying i’m going to fundamentally transform my wife, or my girlfriend, that means you must not love your wife or your girlfriend. And Obama has shown no indication that he loves the Constitution. He never talks about capitalism. He’s always bringing up the past. He’s always picking at scabs. Even now he’s a patsy for Islamic terrorism. Half of his speeches are about how terrible America is and America shouldn’t react in [a] negative way”
And some potential 2016 GOP candidates seem to agree with Rudy. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) said:
“The gist of what Mayor Giuliani said — that the president has shown himself to be completely unable to speak the truth about the nature of the threats from these ISIS terrorists — is true,” Jindal said. “If you are looking for someone to condemn the mayor, look elsewhere.”
What do you think? Did Giuliani go too far? Not far enough?
