Rudy Giuliani is a horrible person. As they do with so many weird bizarre horrible old white dudes, our media got a big mancrush on "America's Mayor" (that doesn't even make any fucking sense, by the way) and inflicted him on us for years even as Rudy was continuing to inflict more horribleness on all of us.
He continues to be horrible. They continue to treat him like a Distinguished Elder Statesman. I suppose he isn't much worse than other Distinguished Elder Statesmen - they're often pretty horrible - but Rudy 9/11 hasn't held elected office or really done anything (positive) of note otherwise in 15 years.
