Rudy Giuliani: Trump an “Economic Genius” for not paying taxes, “a lot better for the US than a woman.” (VIDEOS)

In the wake of the New York Time’s bombshell report that Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump may have not paid taxes for 18 years, the Trump campaign sent out its spinners today. His headline-making comments on the Sunday news shows were 1)Trump is an “economic genius” for not paying his taxes (echoed by another Trump spinner, New Jersey Gov. Chris Chrisite) and that b)the US would be a lot better for the US than “a woman.”

This isn’t surprising. To be blunt about it, since 9/11 Guiliani has gone from being “America’s Mayor” to “America’s hack.”

Here’s the full 10 minute interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper:

Some of the CNN online report:

Rudy Giuliani called Donald Trump a “genius” Sunday, in the wake of a New York Times report indicating he may have legally avoiding paying taxes for nearly two decades.

“The reality is, this is part of our tax code. The man’s a genius. He knows how to operate the tax code to the benefit of the people he’s serving,” the former New York City mayor told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”
Throughout the contentious interview, Tapper repeatedly pressed Giuliani on his claims that Trump was a “genius” and a good businessman based on The New York Times reporting.
“I think that there are a lot of very, very successful businessmen and women who pay federal income taxes and don’t look for every single opportunity there is to avoid paying them,” Tapper said at one point.

And on ABC:

Top Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani referred to the Republican nominee as “a man who has this kind of economic genius” in the same sentence as he called Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton simply “a woman.”

Speaking of reports that Donald Trump claimed a $916 million loss on his 1995 income taxes, Giuliani said: “Don’t you think a man who has this kind of economic genius is a lot better for the United States than a woman, and the only thing she’s ever produced is a lot of work for the FBI checking out her emails?”

The former New York City mayor said in the interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on “This Week” Sunday that Trump was “a genius” for taking advantage of tax laws allowing him to claim the loss.

One question is what’s in those tax returns that the Times has not seen. Most likely, something a lot worse.

Another question: do the media and many voters yet grasp that is not a campaign that does traditional spin but, rather, a campaign the deals in propaganda? The Leader is never ever wrong. And precisely what does this portend if Trump and his crew get into the White House?

    mmpadellan – “Trump lost almost $1bil in ONE YR, they call it genius. That logic, they’ll praise him 4 crashing our economy.” What is even more astonishing is that tens of millions of people really do believe he is a genius.
    Giuliani – “He knows how to operate the tax code to the benefit of the people he’s serving,” The only person Trump is serving is himself.
    Further, Giuliani said: “Don’t you think a man who has this kind of economic genius is a lot better for the United States than a woman.” I think the only thing this proves is that the “economic genius” if elected, is going to find other ways to enrich himself at the expense of the taxpayers.
    You just can’t make this stuff up.

    “Rudy Giuliani is proof that animated excrement walks among us.”

    Couldn’t have said it better. He has lots of company sorry to say.

      All In The Family Lyrics

      Boy the way Glen Miller played
      Songs that made the hit parade.
      Guys like us we had it made,
      Those were the days.
      And you knew who you were then,
      Girls were girls and men were men,
      Mister we could use a man
      Like Herbert Hoover Donald Dumpster again.
      Didn’t need no corporate welfare state,
      Everybody pulled his weight.
      Gee our old LaSalle ran great.
      Those were the days.

        Those were the days my friend
        We thought they’d never end
        We’d sing and dance forever and a day
        We’d live the life we choose
        We’d fight and never lose
        For we were young and sure to have our way.

          I thought I was going to be young forever. Until I wasn’t. Dammit! 😉

            I remember having a “Millennial” attitude 🙂

            I say that with much respect for Millennials. I think they kick butt.

            I had my time, but I wouldn’t mind having their rubbery bodies again. In 1985 I didn’t know the movie “Cocoon” was prophetic.
