If the intelligence quotient of all Trump’s supporters and circle of sinners were added together and divided to find an average, it would be below 100, which is below average. However, his closest advisers and most well-known supporters are especially mentally deficient.
Recently one of them conducted an interview with the other. Now, before I tell you their names, promise to control your laughter. These are two incredibly ridiculous old, very white men.
Okay, if you’re ready, I’ll give you hints about each.
One is a failed British fake-journalist who had his own show on CNN for three years before it was canceled in 2014.
The other clown is a former Mayor of New York City who began “stop and frisk.”
I know you know their names, unless you are one of millions of uninformed Americans.
One is Piers Morgan. He has been a long-time Trump supporter who is a well-known right-wing extremist. The other is Rudy Giuliani about whom I have nothing to say which hasn’t already been said.
The interview occurred on ITV’s “Good Morning Britain.” It lasted 13 minutes. Just four minutes after it began, vicious personal attacks were exchanged between the two Trump stooges.
The attacks began when Morgan asked Giuliani about Trump’s use of a phrase originally used by two white supremacists. The subject was violence after the protests related to the murder of George Floyd began. Morgan asked what did Trump meant when he said, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts?” I must note here that twitter removed this reference based on it’s opposition to the encouragement of violence.
It was no surprise when Giuliani offered a pitiful and idiotic response. Morgan pushed Giuliani to explain why Trump used the quote, to which an increasingly agitated Giuliani replied: “It isn’t inflammatory, it’s accurate.”
Morgan didn’t hold back on his response, and it’s always fun when two immature members of the same family assault each other.
“You sound completely barking mad,” Morgan said. “You’ve lost the plot.”
As you might assume, Giuliani did not take Morgan’s factual criticism well.
Giuliani then turned the argument more personal, saying he “really” knows why Morgan’s former CNN show was canceled with a phrase that sounded like either “f—ed up” or “sucked up.”
And the war of small minds escalated.
Morgan said Giuliani has gone “completely mad, you sound deranged and you’re abusive.” Giuliani responded saying he’s lost respect for Morgan and said “everyone in America knows you’re a failed journalist.”
“You’ve come on here, you’ve been rude and abusive,” Morgan said trying to end the interview. “You sound unhinged. You’ve been using profanity and you were somebody I used to admire.”
Okay, the funniest line here is “you were somebody I used to admire.” What in the hell is admirable about Rudy Giuliani? His only “claim to fame” is that he happened to be the Mayor of New York when the attacks on 9/11 happened. The truth is he was proven a philanderer, and a racist. If Morgan “admired” him, I don’t want to know who he might despise.
Family fights are personal, and for outsiders, they can be hilarious.
