Failed presidential candidate and notorious racist Rudy Giuliani reportedly insulted Hillary Clinton about her weight at a Trump fundraiser in his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida this weekend. Reported Axios:
On Friday night, President Trump entertained around 250 Republican donors in his Mar-a-Lago ballroom. Spotted in the audience: Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen, who recently admitted to paying $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels.The most shocking moment of the evening came when Trump brought his old pal Rudy Giuliani onto the stage.
Giuliani told the crowd he had been down there for Trump’s wedding.”Hillary was also here,” he said, according to two sources in the room, “and she actually fit through the door.”The crowd gasped. I’m told Giuliani’s wife gave him a “most foul look.” Trump later told the audience: “I’m just glad I didn’t say it.”
When you’ve lost Donald Trump, you know you have crossed a line there is no coming back from. Disregarding the appalling sexism and needless nastiness, it is worth noting that Giuliani isn’t exactly a paragon of physical fitness himself, as this photo of him and fellow fat shamer Donald Trump makes clear:
Of course in Giuliani and Trump’s world, men are not held to the same standards women are, so they can chow down on donuts, fast food and soda while insulting the opposite sex for not maintaining a weight they approve of. None of this repellant behavior should be particularly surprising given the track record of Rudy Giuliani, but the awfulness of this president and whom he chooses to associate himself with never ceases to amaze. Giuliani’s disgusting statement about Clinton is yet another glaring reminder of the sexist bullshit women have to put up with, and why the #MeToo movement has taken off under Trump’s presidency.
