Hmm… something tells us all the hard-working poor and middle class people in America don’t exactly see it the same way.
Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, is off saying crazy things about Donald Trump again — this time alleging that the real estate mogul-turned-presidential candidate is “an absolute genius” for not paying his taxes.
This, of course, comes after a New York Times report revealed that The Donald took a nearly billion-dollar loss in 1995 that effectively helped him avoid paying taxes for two decades.
Giuliani, speaking to George Stephanopoulos on ABC‘s This Week, said Sunday morning:
“He would have been a fool not to take advantage of it. You have an obligation when you run a business to maximize the profits.”
An obligation to ethically maximize profits, Giuliani… Ethics … A concept apparently lost on The Donald (and on Rudy, for that matter).
Giuliani didn’t stop there, though, alleging that Trump’s many, many, many, many, many bankruptcies are actually good for the country.
The former NYC mayor said:
“[The country] needs a man who knows how to fail and then come back.. He ent down and went all the way back up. America needs a turnaround artist.”
Giuliani continued peddling his bullsh*t on CNN later, too! Watch that disaster go down (below):
Rudy, Rudy, Rudy.
Trump had himself a tweet-storm about this whole thing, too (below):
I have created tens of thousands of jobs and will bring back great American prosperity. Hillary has only created jobs at the FBI and DOJ!

Clearly, The Donald is completely coming unhinged.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you!!
PS — when Rudy Giuliani of all people calls you an “absolute genius,” that should probably be the most certain sign you’re not a genius.
