The Right-Cheek Ass Clown for October, 2016

It's the first full week of October, and since it's the proper alternate Friday, it's time to announce

The Right-Cheek Ass Clown
October, 2016

And the award goes to

Former New York City Mayor
Rudy Giuliani

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani was the man known as "America's Mayor" for the inspiring leadership he demonstrated in a time of great crisis during and after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. He was named Time Magazine's "Person of the Year" for 2001, largely because of this image.

Now, however, 15 years later, Mr Giuliani has shown a different and less commendable form of leadership as he shills for GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump*. Mr Giuliani has defended Mr Trump's avoidance of income taxes as "genius ... absolute genius," and claimed Trump's leadership would be better for the US economy "than a woman." He described Mr Trump’s appeal in a speech in Milwaukee for black people to abandon the Democratic Party as “the best speech that any Republican, at the least, has ever given,” and defended Mr Trump's various marital infidelities by observing that “everyone” does it**. And he claimed that “Under those eight years, before Obama came along, we didn’t have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States” ... somehow forgetting that the events of September 11, 2001 took place not on President Obama's watch, but that of former President George W. Bush.

For his shameless, fact-challenged, hyperbolic, and history-ignoring shilling for the most unfit person ever to run for president, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani is named as our Right-Cheek Ass Clown for October, 2016.

And consider the possibility of him as Attorney General or Homeland Security Director in a Trump administration. The mind boggles.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow, when Cartoon Saturday returns.


* A six-time winner of this award in his own right.

The only thing scarier than Trump would be a Trump cabinet filled with the likes of Rudy Giuliani.

He deserves both cheeks and the cloaca.

Most worthy! An unfortunately available choice...

Imagine a Drumpf administration with Christie as Attorney General and Giuliani as Homeland Security - that is truly frightening.

Add Newt Gingrich as Secretary of State and it gets even worse!
