Rudy Giuliani's Daughter Suggests You Ignore Her Dad And Vote For Joe Biden
Thanksgiving should be uncomfortable this year for Rudy Giuliani.
That's because his daughter Caroline Rose Giuliani has just backed Joe Biden, whom her Trump-loving father tried to smear, possibly with the help of a Russian disinformation campaign.
It's not exactly a shock: the former New York mayor's daughter supported Hillary Clinton in relation to Donald Trump in 2016 and tweeted a photo with Biden's runner-up Kamala Harris in August.
Still, in a Vanity Fair article published Thursday, the 31-year-old is better for choosing Biden than her father for Trump over the past five years.
She explains that she grew up on "the kind of cruel, selfish politics that Donald Trump has now inflicted on our country."
Giuliani writes that from the age of 12 she occasionally debated her father, but admits that this was "probably before I was emotionally prepared for such a slaughter".
“Although he was considered socially moderate for a Republican at the time, we still often came across heads. When I tried to explain my belief that just because you have gay friends but don't support gay marriage is not considered benevolent about LGBTQ + rights, I clearly remember him being with an intensity shot back, which is more suitable for an opposing politician than for his child. "
Trump and supporters like her father, she writes, have used the presidency to "fuel the injustice that has already permeated our society and bring it to dramatic new heights of the Bond villains."
She also notes that the current government has asked the Supreme Court to fire companies for LGBTQ people, repeal a rule prohibiting health care providers from discriminating against LGBTQ people and banning transgender people from the military.
But she doesn't blame Trump.
“If the daughter of a polarizing mayor who has become the president's personal bulldog has taught me anything, then corruption begins with 'yes men' and women, the cronies who create an echo chamber of lies and submission to keep them close Power, ”writes Giuliani. "We saw this nausea in Trump and his high-level sycophant cadre (those who weren't convicted anyway)."
By comparison, Biden is not afraid of surrounding himself with people who disagree with him, including Harris, who challenged him in the Democratic presidential primary. That speaks volumes about what an inclusive president he will be, says Giuliani.
Giuliani is confident that a Biden government would try to reduce political polarization.
"The idea of 'bipartisanism' may seem painfully ridiculous at the moment, but we need a way out of impenetrable stagnation and vicious sniper," she writes. "In Joe Biden, we have a leader who prioritizes common ground and courtesy over alienation, bullying, and scorched earth tactics."
