We're totally off the map where There Be Dragons on the American political front as we've now witnessed "America's Mayor", Rudi "A Noun, A Verb, And 9/11" Giuliani actually forget that 9/11 happened.
Speaking in Youngstown, Ohio ahead of Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, who was the mayor of New York City on 9/11, declared that Islamic extremists hadn't carried out any terror attacks on American soil before Barack Obama's presidency.
"Under those 8 years, before Obama came along, we didn't have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the US," Giuliani told the crowd. "They all started when Clinton and Obama came into office."
It's not the first time Giuliani has made remarks that seemed to gloss over the terror attacks that left nearly 3,000 dead and that defined him in the eyes of many Americans. While suggesting in 2010 that Obama could stand to take some cues from George W. Bush, the former mayor claimed, "We had no domestic attacks under Bush."
We've finally reached the fact-free portion of the 2016 campaign where the scores don't matter and the points are just made up.
But for Rudy Giuliani, the man who was mayor of goddamn New York City when 9/11 happened, to willfully pitch the event from his mind in order to attack our current president? That's just insanity. Calculated insanity, but insanity nonetheless.
Then again of course this was going to happen during this campaign. We already have a majority of Trump voters believing Obama is a Muslim traitor anyway, so what the hell do facts and issues have to do with anything coming out of the GOP anymore?
