Fox’s Neil Cavuto joined the Donald Trump Muslim-bigotry rehab brigade yesterday as he trotted out Rudy Giuliani to suggest that Trump was correct about Muslims cheering, just wrong about the numbers. As if a few instances are not much different than “thousands and thousands.”
More important than validating Trump was knocking President Obama for focusing on climate change and linking it to terrorism. That came first.
"Remember a time when I was young, which is quite a while ago, we had a global-freeze fear, worry right?" Cavuto said to Giuliani. Then he cited some terror attacks as if that was proof that global warming can’t be connected.
"It's one of the more inexplicable things,” Giuliani agreed. He claimed to be studying Islamic religion and terrorism and that it has nothing to do with climate change. As if anybody ever said that it did. The U.S. calls climate change a “threat multiplier.”
Giuliani sneered that connecting climate change to terrorism is "like saying I'm going to fix terrorism by curing cancer."
Maybe they should smear Prince Charles, too, because he also makes a connection between terrorism and climate change.
But then Cavuto changed the subject to Trump’s claim to have seen “thousands and thousands” of Muslims cheering in New Jersey.
Giuliani said, “I think the issue here is the number.” He said he has “a distinct recollection” of “a number of incidents” reported to him by the police. But Giuliani also said that there was so much going on, “my recollection is not going to be great.”
But Giuliani just happened to have at the ready a New York Post article dated September 14, 2001. It slightly and vaguely backed up Trump but it very explicitly lavished praise on Giuliani a.
GIULIANI: So I will read to you from an article September 14th, 2001, Fred Siegel, New York Post. This is back then. "Here in New York it was easy to get angry listening to Egyptians, Palestinians and the Arabs of nearby Paterson, New Jersey celebrate as they received word of the murderous attacks in New York and Washington. Mayor Giuliani, who has been tireless and magnificent in this crisis, rightly warned New Yorkers that it would be wrong to take that anger out on the city's Arab and Muslim residents. Attacks on Arab-Americans in Paterson or elsewhere are utterly indefensible."
Giuliani added that “over the years,” people have reported to him “things like that.”
“So the only mistake only mistake Trump might have made is assigning a number to it,” Cavuto emphasized.
A similar point was made on The O’Reilly Factor later that night.
Watch Cavuto and Giuliani below, from the December 1 Your World.
Giuliani is slimy, loathsome, and icky.
And an idiot.
Where’s the tapes? The articles? Still in their asses?
