Rudy Giuliani Got The Birthday Wishes He Deserves

At his best, Rudy Guiliani was “America’s Mayor,” who saw New York City through the harrowing events of 9/11, and inspired a sense of community and hope when our neighbors were slain, our skyline was defiled, and our sense of safety shattered. At his worst, he is a vile, big-mouthed defender of the Trump White House. And the city that once adored him has now made it clear we’ve had enough. This Memorial Day, former New York City mayor Rudy Guiliani was booed at a Yankees Game on his birthday. If this were a scripted TV show, we’d decry this bit as too on the nose (even as we cheered it for being just desserts). But in the darkest timeline, it’s just another day that ends in “y.”

When the announcer took a moment to wish the newly minted 74-year-old a happy birthday, instead of applause or cheers, Guiliani’s name was met with stadium-rattling jeers. By the end of the day, video of this public shaming would be splashed across the web on major news sites. But before that, Guliani got dragged on Twitter:

Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, subtweeted Trump in his Giuliani tweet.

And here’s my favorite reaction from conservative Twitter:

These fuckers are coming for the rights and safety of marginalized groups. Pardon me if I don’t lose sleep over the public being rude to them. And if you’re tempted to feel bad for Guliani, remember that before he was America’s Mayor, he was a petty asshole with a worrisome “weirdness factor.”
