Rudy Giuliani Blames 'Abbreviated Language' For 9/11 Gaffe

Of all the excuses in all the gin joints, this is what Rudy comes up with?

After Rudy Giuliani was pillared with massive criticisms for omitting the 9/11 attacks when he tried to score political points for Donald Trump, Rudy blamed his horrific gaffe on speaking in a somewhat "abbreviated language."

WTF does that even mean? I know Donald Trump can barely get through speaking one thought before moving on to something different, but this is an excuse that's never been presented to us before.

While being interviewed by The NY Daily News, after they skewered him also for his callous politicization of the 9/11 attacks Rudy said, "I'm not there to give a major 45-minute policy address." He continued, "You speak in somewhat abbreviated language, All human beings speak in abbreviated language at times."

Again, what the hell? No they don't!

Rudy told a Trump audience in Ohio, "Under those eight years before Obama came along, we didn't have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States."

That means we go back to the year 2000.

It's been reported that Giuliani has suffered a mysterious head injury last week so maybe he's still a bit dizzy?

Rudy then tried to give himself a permanent excuse pass by saying, ""But will I again say things in the future that can be taken out of context or misinterpreted? Of course I will."

And we will call you out for it.

This wasn't first time this a-hole tried to make believe 9/11 didn't happen on George Bush's watch and it won't be his last.
