17 Insane Rudy Giuliani Quotes As Motivational Posters

Rudy Guiliani never seems to bite his tongue. The former mayor of New York City can't help but share inflammatory hate speech on black on black crime, the right to profile Muslims and as everyone has heard by now, the questions of Obama's patriotism and upbringing. 


Vice President Joe Biden once said that Guiliani can only mention three words in a sentence — "a noun and a verb and 9/11." If only Biden's joke was true, the media and political landscape both would be much less a joke itself without the hate speech expressed by "America's Mayor."
