On Sunday, Rudy Giuliani was slapped hard in the back by an employee at a convenience store in Staten Island, New York. The 78 year-old former Mayor and Trump attorney later told the New York Post that he was left shaken and almost fell because of the attack. He has since reported that he is fine from the attack.
He was campaigning for his son, Andrew, who is running for New York governor that day. Giuliani had just left the restroom and can be seen talking to a group of people. Out of nowhere, he was struck on the back by an employee. The man who did it is now under arrest.
“All of a sudden, I feel this ‘Bam!’ on my back,” Giuliani detailed. “I don’t know if they helped me not fall down, but I just about fell down, but I didn’t.”
“I feel this tremendous pain in my back, and I’m thinking, what the — I didn’t even know what it was,” Giuliani said. “All of a sudden, I hear this guy say, ‘You’re a f–king scumbag,’ then he moves away so nobody can grab him.”
“And he says, ‘You, you’re one of the people that’s gonna kill women. You’re gonna kill women,’ ” Giuliani continued. “‘You and your f–king friend are gonna kill women.’ Then he starts yelling out all kinds of, just curses, and every once in a while, he puts in that woman thing.”
“You guys think you’re saving babies, but you’re gonna kill women,’” the worker said.
After the incident, Giuliani blasted the man for what he did.
“The Supreme Court made a decision,” Giuliani responded. “You don’t go around attacking people because of it. I mean, go get it changed.”
The Former Trump attorney spoke afterwards on Curist Silwa’s show on 77 WABC. He said the slap felt like “somebody shot” him
“Luckily, I’m a 78-year-old who is in pretty good shape,” he said. “If I wasn’t, I would have hit the ground and probably cracked my skull.”
Giuliani told the New York Post that he called the cops on the guy afterwards.
“I say to myself, ‘You know something? I gotta get this guy arrested,’” he detailed . “I talk about ‘broken windows’ theory all the time. You can’t let the little things go. “I’m like, ‘I’m gonna get this guy arrested as an example that you can’t do this. And I said, also, in New York, we don’t prosecute people anymore And one of the reasons I brought crime down is I didn’t ignore stuff like this.”
Afterwards, Giuliani joked to his son that he met the one “only person who is not voting for Andrew Giuliani.”
A witness described being “stunned” by the attack and the arrest afterwards.
“I was shoulder-to-shoulder with Rudy inside ShopRite,” Rugova-Johnson said. “We’re talking, and all of a sudden an employee came out of nowhere and open-handedly slapped him in the back and said, ‘Hey, what’s up, scumbag?’
“[The attacker] was on duty at the time,” the witness said. “The cops arrested him.”
The suspect’s name is Daniel Gill from Staten Island. He has been charged second-degree assault involving a person over the age of 65.
Andrew Giuliani is planning to hold a rally at the store where his father got stabbed and has since released a statement:
“Innocent people are attacked in today’s New York all of the time. This particular incident hit very close to home. The assault on my father, America’s Mayor, was over politics. We will not be intimidated by left-wing attacks. As governor, I will stand up for law and order so that New Yorkers feel safe again. This message has resonated with voters throughout my campaign, leading up to Tuesday’s primary.”
It’s bad when liberals think they can just push elderly men out in broad daylight. Gladly, Giuliani is okay after the attack. It’s likely going to get way worse coming into the midterms as Democrats push their radicals to get more rabid. Do you think that the tolerant left is violent or not?
