Giuliani's son is hoping to prove why 'history repeats itself'
New York City — From social media to late-night talk shows, the name "Giuliani" is back in the news cycle. Only, in this instance, his first name is Andrew, not Rudy.
Sure, Jimmy Kimmel wasted no time roasting Giuliani over his recent bid for NY Governor. Ahem, but didn't that same Kimmel, a few years back, roast Trump for his presidential bid? If history has taught us anything, it's taught us this: anything is possible for someone who believes anything is possible.
Giuliani worked as Trump's public liaison, even served as the president's "golf buddy." Needless to say, spending that much time around Trump — a man whose motto is "if you're going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big” — clearly rubbed off on him.
“But, yeah, Rudy Giuliani’s son is running for governor off of his dad’s name," said Trevor Noah. But unlike Kimmel, Noah interprets Giuliani's bid differently:
It’s not a bad move. I mean, considering how much Americans love political dynasties. Bush, Clinton, Cheney, Kennedy, Cuomo — it’s almost like America fought the Revolution to say, ‘We don’t want a king, we want, like, six to eight kings, and they can rotate!’
From the Kennedys to the Bushes to the Clintons — nepotism goes hand in hand with politics! No wonder the latest edition of Giuliani is banking on "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" . . . in the Big Apple.
Sure, our proud nation was birthed from the death of monarchies and all such successions to the throne. Ah, but because no stream can rise higher than its source, no matter how "high" our political system rises — it still reflects its source, the British Crown.
For the above reasons, if for no other — Andrew Giuliani's bid for governor is fascinating!
“I’m a politician out of the womb. It’s in my DNA,” Giuliani declared. And it's this sense of showmanship which, if nothing else, gives the underdog a "fighting chance." Speaking of fight, Giuliani likened his potential showdown with Cuomo to the most famous boxing match in history.
“Giuliani vs. Cuomo. Holy smokes. It's Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier. We can sell tickets at Madison Square Garden!” he joked.
Indeed, Ali and Frazier single-handedly turned MSG into the "Mecca of Boxing." And if Giuliani has his way, he's set to square off with Cuomo in round two of the Fight of the Century, better known as — "Andrew vs. Andrew for NY Governor."
