My Gob is Smacked Past All Smackeration. Thanks, Rudy

Just a quicky here, as I can’t resist this: Speaking in Youngstown, Ohio ahead of Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, who was the mayor of New York City on 9/11, declared that Islamic extremists hadn’t carried out any terror attacks on American soil before Barack Obama’s presidency. “Under those 8 years, before Obama came along, we […]
