Giuliani didn't get the memo to smile. - Senator Al Franken


Rudy Giuliani Was Not Amused By Hillary Clinton’s Jokes About Him
She roasted him at a charity event. He looked like he wanted to die.

You should try smiling, sir!


.....................During her spiel, Clinton gave a shout-out to the “wonderful elected officials” in the room. “The honorable Chuck Schumer. The honorable Andrew Cuomo. The honorable Mike Bloomberg.”

“And, we have Rudy Giuliani,” she said to laughs.

The camera panned to his face in the crowd. There was nothing even resembling a smile going on there. It was just a scowl and a pair of lopsided glasses hanging on his nose. Clinton kept going.

“Many don’t know this, but Rudy actually got his start as a prosecutor going after wealthy New Yorkers who avoided paying taxes,” she said, a reference to Trump reportedly not paying federal income taxes. “But as the saying goes, if you can’t beat ‘em, go on Fox News and call ‘em a genius.

That drew another round of laughs, but not from Giuliani. It was just a cold, hard death stare.

Giuliani intended to make a bundle selling security services to a Trump government. He has been prepared to say and do ANYTHING to get Trump elected. Now, there will be no President Trump and no big payoff for Giuliani. That's why he cannot smile.

And, then there is Chris Christie. His future, too, depended on a Trump presidency. Now, he has nothing to look forward to but sitting in the kind of traffic jams that he once had the power to create. Christie cannot smile, either.

extravagant cleavage, so maybe he thought the cameras would never scan over that far.
