Rudy Giuliani was slapped in his back by a Shop Rite employee in Staten Island on Sunday (June 26) over the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
The assault occurred at the ShopRite on Veteran’s Road.
Rudy Giuliani said he had just left the restroom, and he was greeted by some supporters, and all of a sudden he felt a “Bam!” on his back.
All of a sudden, I feel this, ‘Bam!’ on my back.
I don’t know if they helped me not fall down, but I just about fell down, but I didn’t.
I feel this tremendous pain in my back, and I’m thinking, what the… I didn’t even know what it was.
All of a sudden, I hear this guy say, ‘You’re a f***ing scumbag,’ then he moves away so nobody can grab him.
And he says, ‘You, you’re one of the people that’s gonna kill women. You’re gonna kill women.
You and your f***ing friend are gonna kill women.’ Then he starts yelling out all kinds of, just curses, and every once in a while, he puts in that woman thing.
‘You guys think you’re saving babies, but you’re gonna kill women.’
The Supreme Court made a decision. You don’t go around attacking people because of it. I mean, go get it changed.
Guiliani said the slap felt like “somebody shot” him.
Luckily, I”m a 78-year-old who is in pretty good shape.
If I wasn’t, I would have hit the ground and probably cracked my skull.
He also stated he felt it was his duty to call the cops and press charges against the ShopRite employee.
I say to myself, ‘You know something? I gotta get this guy arrested.
I talk about ‘broken windows’ theory all the time. You can’t let the little things go.
I’m like, ‘I’m gonna get this guy arrested as an example that you can’t do this. And I said, also, in New York, we don’t prosecute people anymore.
And one of the reasons I brought crime down is I didn’t ignore stuff like this.
Andrew Giuliani, Rudy’s son, is running for Governor of New York, and Rudy was in the area supporting his son’s campaign.
Andrew said his dad is “tough as nails,” and he’s doing fine after the assault.
Andrew blames the assault on the left-wing for encouraging violence.
He’s doing fine. But it’s a sad day when New Yorkers’ greatest crime fighter, ‘America’s Mayor,’ is attacked.
I blame the left-wing for encouraging violence. This is crazy.
Rita Rugova-Johnson, who witnessed the event, said she was “stunned” to see the attack.
I was shoulder-to-shoulder with Rudy inside ShopRite.
We’re talking, and all of a sudden an employee came out of nowhere and open-handedly slapped him in the back and said, ‘Hey, what’s up scumbag?’
The attacker was on duty at the time.
The cops arrested him.
Sources say cops were called to the ShopRite shortly before 3:30 PM.
Reportedly, the 39-year-old suspect from Staten Island has no prior arrest, but he will be charged with second-degree assault involving a person over the age of 65.
The assault was caught on video surveillance, and judging by the video Rudy Giuliani has a powerful imagination.
