Former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani gave a strange (even for Rudy) rambling speech at his annual 9/11 dinner last night.
In video clips, Giuliani can be seen impersonating Queen Elizabeth claiming that she offered him a knighthood which he turned down.
“I turned down a knighthood because if you took a knighthood, you had to lose your citizenship.”
(FYI, he WAS given an honorary title by the Queen in 2001 –not a knighthood- but was not required to give up his citizenship.)
Ron Filipowski, who posted the video clips on Twitter, said,
“I’m not sure I have ever seen someone give a speech at a formal occasion as drunk as Rudy Giuliani is right now at the 9/11 dinner”
Giuliani mentioned Prince Andrew, who has recently been served papers in a lawsuit from Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre.
“I know Prince Andrew is very questionable now. I never went out with him. Ever!
“Never had a drink with him, never was with a woman or young girl with him...
Ever, ever, ever.”
In another clip, Giuliani criticized States Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and General Mark Milley for describing Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan as “not strategically important.”
“How’s that guy a general?
I wanted to grab his stars and shove it down his throat and say, ‘it’s 400 miles from China, asshole! China is going to be our enemy for the next 40 years! You have an airbase 400 miles from them and you’re giving it up?
Idiot! What the hell is wrong with you? Who pays you? Christ!’
Rudy also spoke about his own role overseeing the aftermath of 9/11,
“20 years ago, I did my job for the country. I’m very proud of it.”
Well, he fucked that up that too, if you remember. He was advised against it, but he put the emergency coms headquarters for the NYPD & NYC Fire Department on the 7th floor INSIDE the World Trade Center.
But his list of bungles was nicely summed up by Twitter user @JoJoFromHertz,
“To think- Rudy Giuliani, the butt dialing, parking lot press conference next to a dildo store holding, lie down on a hotel bed for Borat’s daughter shirt ‘tucking’, hair dye leaking, restaurant shaving, Covid via fart spreading former Mayor… peaked when he married his cousin.“
According to a report in Vanity Fair in 2018,
Giuliani’s third wife, Judith Nathan, filed for divorce after he allegedly began an affair with a woman named Maria Rosa Ryan.That probably shouldn’t come as much of a shock to anyone, least of all Nathan, who was that “other woman” when Giuliani held a press conference to announce that he would be leaving his second wife, Donna Hanover, to take up with his mistress. Hanover learned all of this for the first time as he explained the situation to the media. Giuliani’s first marriage was annulled after 14 years when he discovered that his wife was his cousin…
NY Times writer Maggie Haberman said that the dinner took place at Cipriani and that lawyers Victoria Toensing and Joe diGenova were in attendance as well as former Trump advisor, Steve Bannon.

Rudy Giuliani did everything wrong before, during, and after 9/11. Just an awful person. People ask “what happened” to him, but the ghoul he is today is the ghoul he was 20 years ago. https://t.co/M18uZXd8OM pic.twitter.com/9bSzMQozdH— Parker Molloy (@ParkerMolloy) September 11, 2021
