...The mayor of New York City, Eric Adams, has suggested his predecessor Rudy Giuliani be investigated for filing a false police report, after claiming he was assaulted by a heckler who clapped him on the back at a Staten Island grocery store.

"Someone needs to remind former mayor Giuliani that falsely reporting a crime is a crime," Adams told reporters, saying he had watched security video that undercut Giuliani's account.

Giuliani, 78, described being hit so hard it felt like being shot.

The heckler, who police said cried out, "What's up -------?" as he walked away, was arrested and spent more than 24 hours in jail before arraignment on misdemeanor charges including third-degree assault.

Adams said the Staten Island district attorney, Michael McMahon, "has the wrong person that he's investigating".

Adams said: "When you look at the video, the guy basically walked by and patted him on the back. It was clear that he was not punched in the head. It was clear that it didn't feel like a bullet. It was clear that he wasn't about to fall to the ground."...

I watched the video, too. Everything Giuliani claimed was a lie.

The cousin-porking lush should've gotten the Abner Louima treatment for helping with the demented orange pedo's coup attempt.

"TDS" in a nutshell:

1. Doctor diagnoses patient with Stage II lung cancer.
2. Doctor suggests chemo and surgery to save patient's life.
3. Patient defends lung cancer, says that it is of no consequence and it keeps him strong and healthy. He's never felt and breathed better!
4. Doctor gives exhaustive evidence why it most definitely will be fatal within a couple of years if left untreated.
5. Patient accuses Doctor of having irrational prejudice against lung cancer; vows to increase smoking habit from 2 to 4 packs a day.

Trump intellectually stunts all of his supporters. Its his own unique form of STD. Giuliani is one such high-profile example. He went from being a pretty astute guy to a blithering idiot within a few short years. Trump is a political form of syphilis. Eventually his supporters become paretic wrecks of their former selves.

Staten Island is a bastion of right wing buffoonery so stands to reason the DA out there would still want to prosecute this guy. He was held in jail for 24 hours? That alone seems to me a lawsuit coming.

Another day or so and Rudy will claim he was attacked by a gang, they swung ANTIFA signs at him, his wristwatch was stolen and his shopping cart tipped over. Tune into OAN tonight for more comedy...

TDS is the syndrome where you keep supporting a political leader even after he tries to overthow democracy.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is widespread among the devotees of Cult45. Just watch and listen to Mike Lindell or Drunk Rudy Smollett speak for 30 seconds, if you need examples.

A 78 year old body is fragile. Skin is like paper and bruises easily. If you have elderly parents/grandparents you would know this.
