“Rudy Giuliani, for nearly 3,000 Americans, including Pentagon employees, 9/11 was not the happiest day of their lives. Especially their next of kin and friends,” wrote Ken Gordon.

Giuliani previously spoke of 9/11 as the “greatest day” and last year, on its 20th anniversary, said the same thing.

“It was the worst day in the history of my city…and it was the most beautiful day, a day of immense heroism.”

In the days following the attacks, Giuliani was hailed as “America’s mayor” for his leadership in New York City.

Sunday marks the 21st anniversary of the attacks, which killed nearly 3,000 people, about 2,750 of whom were in New York.

At one point, Giuliani was seen as a dominant figure in American politics.  He is in the picture in June

At one point, Giuliani was seen as a dominant figure in American politics.

He initially performed well in his bid for president in 2016 before his campaign sputtered and he eventually quit after the Florida primaries.

Last year, Giuliani, who served as Donald Trump’s personal attorney for part of his presidency, was temporarily suspended from law in New York and Washington DC following his fraudulent claims that Trump had won the 2020 election.

He spread baseless conspiracy theories about the election and also caused the crowds outside the US Capitol to be stirred up on January 6, 2021.

A hearing will be held next month to determine whether he will be allowed to work as a lawyer in the city again.
