You said it, Rudy.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, building on Donald Trump’s lie that the November election is rigged against him, railed Sunday that he “would have to be a moron to say” that the election in cities like “Philadelphia and Chicago is going to be fair.”
Giuliani, who has shamelessly parroted various conspiracy theories touted by Trump over the campaign, added that he thought it was very likely there would be voter fraud on Nov. 8 that favored Hillary Clinton, especially in urban areas.
“I’ve found very few situations where Republicans cheat,” Giuliani said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “They don’t control the inner cities the way Democrats do.”
“I’m sorry. Dead people generally vote for Democrats rather than Republicans,” Giuliani said. “I can’t sit here and tell you that they don’t cheat, and I know because they control the polling places in these areas
“They leave dead people on the rolls and then they pay people to vote as those dead people, four, five, six, seven, eight times,” he added.
The comments echo Trump’s outrageous claims that the election is “rigged” against him, as part of a conspiracy involving the media, the Clinton campaign and various other elements — an idea Newt Gingrich, another wacky surrogate for the GOP nominee, reiterated Sunday.
“I think that without the unending one-sided assault of the news media, Trump would be beating Hillary by 15 points,” Gingrich told ABC’s “This Week.”
