Group Apologizes for Giuliani’s ‘Unscripted’ Remarks at Awards Dinner

By Jillian Jorgensen • 09/30/1

“At CFA’s 40 Under 40 Awards last Thursday night, keynote speaker Rudolph Giuliani veered sharply off course from the leadership message he agreed to deliver and presented unscripted personal opinions which were independent of CFA’s political position or core values,” Bob Trojan, the group’s CEO, wrote in an email sent to attendees and forwarded to the Observer. “While we, the event organizers, made every attempt to direct Mr. Giuliani’s remarks ahead of time to focus on leadership, for which he is renowned and has authored a book, there is always the possibility of such a surprise at a live event.”

The note continued: “For those of you who were offended by Mr. Giuliani’s remarks, please accept my sincere apology.”

The apology for Giuliani’s speech was sent Monday, just a day before the Commercial Observer reported that Giuliani had been axed as the keynote speaker for a conference held by the International Council of Shopping Centers—following letters from real estate professionals who deemed him divisive for his outspoken support of Trump.

The remarks Giuliani made to the Commercial Finance Association Thursday have not been publicly reported. But an attendee told the Observer the crowd was “shocked” by Giuliani’s comments and that some people began complaining about his speech almost immediately after it was over.

“Rudy talked about immigration and made a really, really inappropriate comment about the quote-unquote Mexicans in the kitchen at the Waldorf,” the attendee said. “It was bad. You could hear a pin drop. I think he was looking for applause.”

6. Who's bright idea was it to have him speak in the 1st place?

Considering everything we know about Rudy, it boggles my mind that anyone would think he'd be a good choice.

7. He and Trumpwhiz confuse Intimidation and Leadership.

See: The infatuation with Putin.

It's common among those with authoritarian mind sets. (or lack of mind.)

8. The older they get, the more they forget.

In this case, he forgot to camouflage his bigotry.

9. Also, that's not how you apologize.

“For those of you who were offended by Mr. Giuliani’s remarks, please accept my sincere apology.”

Don't apologize because people were offended.

Apologize because the remarks were offensive.

Don't apologize because people were angry at your being wrong.

Apologize because you were wrong.

(Bonus points for trying, though.)

10. He has been milking that "leadership" theme for 15 years now

just because he was in NYC on 9-11.
and DESPITE the fact so many people were damaged by his screw ups after that day.

The hypocrite is noted for saying this:
"Now we understand much more clearly. why people from all over the world want to come to New York and to America. It's called freedom."

Yet 22 hours ago on Twitter he said:
"f Hispanics can't learn to speak English, they shouldn't be living here. @realDonaldTrump will make sure of that."

12. One of my favorite jokes told to me by a citizen of the world who's not American.

What do you call a person who speaks multiple languages? Multilingual.

What do you call a person who speaks two languages? Bilingual.

What do you call a person who speaks one language? American.

11. Something is wrong with him

He's always been a little off but recently he's out of the world nuts. He needs a neurological and psychiatric assessment. His family should make sure he gets it soon.

13. He's just getting old.

He's always been a bigot. He's just not that good anymore at remembering to hide it.

We age. We forget.

14. I hope these jackasses get the message: racism is not tolerated. Go back into your hole.
