Rudy Giuliani Says ‘No Successful Terror Attacks In U.S. Until Obama’
Seems like he’s forgetting something

Someone should remind Rudy Giuliani he was the mayor of New York City. On September 11, 2001. And that he talked about it non-stop until yesterday, apparently.
Giuliani has become a surrogate on the campaign trail for Donald Trump and made a truly baffling statement while addressing Trump supporters at a rally. While discussing law and order in the federal government, he said:
“Under those eight years, before Obama came along, we didn’t have any successful radical Islamic attacks in the United States. They all started when Clinton and Obama got into office.”
And unsurprisingly, the Internet is going crazy, with people pointing out that Giuliani used his own performance on that day to mount a wildly unsuccessful run for president in 2012. Several others have pointed out that it was Joe Biden who delivered the great zinger on Rudy a few years ago when he said:
"There's only three things he mentions in a sentence — a noun and a verb and 9/11."
Then mayor Rudy Giuliani stands next to President Bush in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attack
Even if by “eight years” Giuliani was referring to the time after September 11, it still sounds suspiciously like he’s trying to sweep responsibility under the rug for the worst terror attack in American history. It just goes to show, if you try to have it both ways in politics, “we handled a terror attack better than any one,” “there were no terror attacks under our watch,” you just end up looking foolish to everyone.
