This may or may not have happened; there is a glut of books exposing wicked dissenters from the Leftist agenda these days, and many have been proven false. In any case, it strains credulity: Trump was supposed to be inexcusably “Islamophobic” himself, so why would this alleged “Islamophobic rant” bother him?
Meanwhile, Geoffrey Berman claims that Giuliani regaled the dismayed crowd with a “wholly inaccurate, alt-right history of the creation and development of Islam, stating that it was an inherently violent religion from its origins to today.” I’m willing to bet that Geoffrey Berman knows exactly zero about the creation and development, as well as the history of Islam. He knows, however, that to state that it has been violent for 1400 years, although it is readily demonstrable fact, is unacceptable among the Leftist elites today, and so he has to claim otherwise, and the facts be damned.
“Drunken Rudy Giuliani went on Islamophobic rant, new book claims,” Middle East Eye, September 9, 2022:
Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and confidant of former US President Donald Trump, lashed out with Islamophobic comments during a dinner party, according to a new book. The outburst likely contributed to his being overlooked for the position of secretary of state.
At a 2016 dinner, an inebriated Giuliani mistook a Jewish man wearing a yarmulke for a Muslim and called out: “I’m sorry to have tell you this, but the founder of your religion is a murderer,” according to a new book by Geoffrey Berman, a former US attorney for the southern district of New York.
Giuliani went on to share a “wholly inaccurate, alt-right history of the creation and development of Islam, stating that it was an inherently violent religion from its origins to today”, Berman writes.
The former New York mayor pulled his phone out to guests and “showed the group drawings of violent acts purportedly committed by Muslims”.
“It was unbelievable,” Berman said. “Rudy was unhinged. A pall fell over the room.”
The incident was first reported by The Guardian, which obtained a copy of Berman’s memoir, Holding the Line: Inside the Nation’s Preeminent US Attorney’s Office and its Battle with the Trump Justice Department….
