Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani has put his reputation on the line to support the candidacy of disgraced Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Even after being exposed as a tax dodger and a misogynist who degrades women and gropes them without permission, Giuliani is standing by his man.
Appearing on NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday, Giuliani was confronted on Trump's behavior. Saying, "This isn't the first time he's talked this way," host Chuck Todd played audio from a 2008 Howard Stern interview where Trump boasted about entering the dressing rooms of the Miss Universe pageant -- which he owned at the time -- and ogling women in various states of un-dress.
"Still he wasn't running for president," Giuliani said. Todd jumped on Giuliani, saying, "So it's ok to make unwanted sexual advances?"
Giuliani's defense was that Stern's show is a "shock-jock"-style show where people try to get laughs. Giuliani added, "words are different than actions," insinuating Trump never acted aggressively toward women. Not so, said Todd, reading quotes from a woman who claimed the exact opposite. Watch below, starting about the 3:15 mark.
