President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said Tuesday that in the modern era facts are “in the eye of the beholder.”
In a back and forth exchange between Giuliani and Chris Cuomo on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, the former mayor of New York City called Trump one of the most honest presidents in history.
“If fact counting is anything, we’ve never had anybody with the level of mendacity that he has,” Cuomo quickly responded, likely alluding to the over 4,000 false or misleading claims Trump has made, according to The Washington Post since taking office.
“It’s in the eye of the beholder,” Giuliani said. When Cuomo tried to respond that factual statements are not in the eye of the beholder, the attorney answered with “nowadays they are.”
The statement came after the two discussed Paul Manafort’s trial and the accusations being made by former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman. Her most recent claim is that President Trump knew about the hacked Democratic emails obtained by Wikileaks before they were released during the 2016 election. (Read more)
First, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said that he thought President Barack Obama didn’t love America. He made the comments while speaking to a crowd of conservatives at a private dinner, saying, “I do not believe— and I know this is a horrible thing to say— but I do not believe that the President loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”
Almost immediately, there was a strong reaction— both in support of and against the comments. One of the most outspoken people against Giuliani’s thoughts on the President so far has been Minister Louis Farrakhan, who didn’t hold back when letting Giuliani know what he thought of his remarks.

The Political Agitator response: Again save that thought! You see these guys say stuff and then try to act like they don’t mean it in the public but I bet behind closed doors the message stands. You see when folks say stuff like this, they are saying how some folks really feel and didn’t have the guts to say it publicly so they have done it for them. Damn say what you mean and mean what you say or shut the hell up. Once you have said it, you can’t change it. It is a damn shame that these guys making these ignant comments over and over again after the President has won both ought to get over him being an intelligent black man who they need to respect. Hell I didn’t say they had to like him but they need to just respect the man and the better off they will be.
After doubling and tripling down on his controversial comments regarding President Barack Obama’s lack of love for America, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Sunday moved closer to something of a mea culpa.
“My blunt language suggesting that the president doesn’t love America notwithstanding, I didn’t intend to question President Obama’s motives or the content of his heart,” Giuliani wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed. “My intended focus really was the effect his words and his actions have on the morale of the country, and how that effect may damage his performance.”
The former GOP presidential candidate then went on to criticize the president for “his inability or disinclination to emphasize what is right with America,” a point Republicans have been making for some time now. He also took issue with Obama for failing to express adequate support for allies like Israel and Ukraine. (Source: Read more)
