Rudy’s, WTF? Moment

Last week while Rudy Giuliani was speaking at an NRA meeting his cell phone began to ring. Rudy stopped his speech, took his phone from his pocket and answered the call. It was his wife calling so he spoke with her, told her he’d call her back and added that he loved her.

WTF was that all about? Was it a planned call and supposed to be funny? Was it for real and unplanned? If it wasn’t planned, who the hell leaves their cell phone on when they are giving a speech? Could there be anything more rude than interrupting your speech and your audience by taking a timeout to answer the phone?

Was this supposed to signal that his wife comes before anything else? I just don’t get it.

Sounds like the idiot was trying to act like he has a loving marriage, instead of having a gold digging wife who could care less about the future dictator.

Oh don't get me started on that asshat. I've been stone cold hatin' on him since he was our not so esteemed mayor.

Here is my two cents... He is posturing and positioning himself as a "loving husband and family man" to the gun loving crowd with their so-called Christian values. Frankly as someone who does believe I have no clue how they justify their vitriolic hypocrisy, but that's another story.

So here he is - despite marrying his cousin and getting a divorce. And an annulment. And then after excoriating Bill Clinton (whom I will always adore no matter what bad judgment he exercised at "that moment") Rudy basically informs his second wife (and kids) via a press conference that he is ditching them and marrying Judith Nathan!

Whom he has been "schtupping" in Gracie Mansion when Donna and the kids were out and about. (if you don't understand yiddish i think you will still get the reference)

Honestly I loathe this man. He claims to have saved NY which I think was on its way to repair anyway and was improved by the Clinton era.

He tried to break NY-ers of jay-walking! This meant having cops at every corner and you used to have to cross 3 corners to cross one corner... I used to actually ask the cops "isn't there some crack dealer in Bed-Stuy that requires your attention?" How I didn't get arrested is beyond me.

Anyway I digress. Ideologically he and I were so much alike, although I always loathed him. He was pro-choice and rather ardently so. He was gay friendly and even went to stay with his gay friends after Donna threw him out of Gracie Mansion. And he was anti-gun and passionately so.

Not so much anymore.

And now- such a loving husband too.

He's not losing the steam I thought he would and that concerns me. A lot.

Let it never be said again that Rudi is a cold and heartless son of a bitch toward his lady! This sort of an heart warming and a totally unplanned display of the family priorities and values goes a long way to convince the most of us to vote for the man. Could his private and equally unplanned conversation with his greator, on front of hundreds of people and vast audience of millions witnessing it on TV, be far in the future now? Fat Tony, his peronal safety expert cum gundealer might ring Rudi's number and keep in touch with this brilliant candidate too. We know that guys like Tony, are the corner stone in keeping Americans safe.

I surmise it was an act to show how considerate he is of his wife and just a regular guy like the rest of us.

This could start a whole new trend for politicians. Perhaps, as well as the husband or partner, the Bishop could call too! Then what about a veteran or retired General and someone from the local dog shelter?

It could only happen in America! Cheers.

You have to give him credit, he's done more to make you proud to be a democrat than most of the democratic candidates have.

soon all the soldiers will be calling Mitt, McInsane, McFlightsuit, Muckabee, Moronponsom and all the rest of the assholes in the Gay Old Party and the most inopportune moments just to show that after leaving their specimens behind in the airport bathrooms, they are truly loving family men.

rudy needs a better PR person to have more realistic fake staged events.

It is sort of like when the Franklin Inst, knowing how incredibly gullible the American public is, bought Jackie's pearls at auction, made copies of those fake pearls to sell.

that is what rudy is -- a copy of a fake being sold as real to most gullible nation on earth

I'm guessing that Judy has to call him every hour to remind him of her name. With all those past wives, it's gotta be getting hard for his addled brain to keep them straight.

What a tool he is.

To me, he just looked like another cellphone-yapping idiot taking a call when he should be paying attention to what he's doing at the moment.

Rudy is a moron. He may even be a bigger moron than the current occupant of the White House. His only answer to any foreign policy question is "911."

I agree with franiam and others...it was nothing more than a ploy to make him look like a loving husband. He kept saying "I love you,dear" over and over again. They even play politics with their marriages. Rudy is a disgusting asshole.

It was phony. It signaled to me that RG is listening to pinheads. It was a pandering moment done wrong.
When I first heard this, my first thought was, "What a high-maintenance biatch." First thought.
But it was phony, and if he had thought about it properly, he wouldn't have pulled a stunt. Because, the last thing I want is for a sitting president to pull a stunt on the American public.... oh wait..... ummm... nevermind.
Seriously, though, this shows that HE, RG, thinks the American public is stupid... oh wait... DAMMIT!... okay,
Seriously, where's that whacky face-mugging kid of his? Why doesn't HE call and interrupt his speech to tell him he loves him? They're what?... They're estranged?
Hmmm... Okay, I'm done. Rudy can suck it.

that they didn't immediately whip out their guns and shoot him for playing them for fools says more about that particular audience than it does about rudy. who could actually be surprised that he would stoop so low? what sort of fools would be taken in anyway?

Let's hope Karl Rove isn't looking for gainful employment, because if he can successfully put Shrub in the White House, then he might be able to put Rube, I mean Rude in there too.

She was reminding him what to say. "Now you did tell them to vote for you, right?" Isn't she his "campaign manager/helpmate"?

Where is Leticia Baldridge when you need her? She'd set him straight on phone etiquette.

I agree with all these comments. The guy is a complete sham.

I think I read somewhere that before 9/11/01 he reported his net worth at one of his divorce or annullment hearings as something like $7,000, but most recently he was said to be worth $37 million? Sounds to me like he is making all kinds of money for having been in the right place at the right time. Some of that money was made when he skipped out on attending the Hamilton-Baker group's meeting... making millions of dollars for speaking engagements was more important than finding out what happened to his city on 9/11/01, finding out how safe or unsafe it really was at Ground Zero after the tragedy, etc.

Of the leading GOP candidates, I think he is about the worst. To me he is so utterly abysmal it makes it almost seem like McCain might not make a bad president.
