Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was feisty on “The Kelly File” Thursday night, doubling down on his comment that Barack Obama does not love America.
Via Fox News:
Megyn Kelly asked Giuliani: Do you want to apologize for your comment?
“Not at all, I want to repeat it,” he said, charging Obama with apologizing for America and criticizing the country.
Kelly pressed Giuliani, noting that Obama could view foreign policy through a Democratic lens. “But to condemn his patriotism, to question his love of America?” she asked.
“I don’t hear from him what I heard from Harry Truman, what I heard from Bill Clinton, what I heard from Jimmy Carter, which is these wonderful words about what a great country we are, what an exceptional country we are,” Giuliani said.
He stressed, “I’m right about this. I have no doubt about it. I do not withdraw my words.”
Giuliani went on to make the case in even stronger terms than he did before, evoking Obama’s Commie grandparents, Frank Marshall Davis, and Obama’s 17 year stint in Rev. Jeremiah (G*d Damn America) Wright’s church. (It really seems like Giuliani’s been researching Obama’s background – especially the disturbing early years.)
“Now, if you were in that church, wouldn’t you quit that church?” Giuliani asked Megyn – who was either in major devil’s advocate mode, or being pretentiously PC. “Would you have quit that church?” he persisted.
“Well, it’s not about me,” Megyn dodged.
“But I know you would quit that church,” Rudy declared. “And the reason you would is because of the way you were brought up – about how exceptional this country is… how wonderful this country is…”
In an attempt to prove Rudy’s hypocrisy, Megyn showed an old video of him on Hannity railing against the infamous MoveOn “General Betray-Us” ad which Giuliani found appalling and uncivil at the time.
“I ask you the same thing,” Megyn said, “what kind of civility was that?” – referring to Rudy’s comments about Obama.
“I think that was perfectly civil,” Giuliani insisted. “I think it’s a reasonable opinion…”
(It’s not only a ‘reasonable” opinion – it’s a necessary opinion. For six years now, this president has been hellbent on knocking the country down a peg. It’s time he was knocked down a peg.)
“I do not withdraw my words,” Giuliani concluded.
