Donald Trump has been able to say and do what he wants with absolutely no remorse or having to take responsibility for anything. Alongside Mr. Trump, his group of surrogates have followed suit and seemingly lost their minds, as well. Former New York City mayor, aka “America’s Mayor,” Rudy Giuliani’s mental health has appeared to be slipping, and The Washington Post editorial board had some choice words for him.
In a recent editorial piece by The Washington Post, they asked the question that a lot of people would like to know: “Is ‘America’s Mayor’ okay?” In reading the article, it’s almost as if you can just taste the sarcasm as it is drenching every word. It’s odd and kind of makes you wonder if they really are concerned with Giuliani’s mental health, if they’re making fun of his obvious, blundering rhetoric, or if they seriously think he needs to be checked out for brain damage.
One of the questions they had made it seem as if they were poking fun:
‘Mr. Giuliani animatedly gestured toward his knees as he said “top,” and above his head as he said “bottom.” Also, why did he say that he and his wife, Judith, have been friends with Mr. Trump for 30 years, though he met his wife in 1999, only 17 years ago?’
Everyone noticed that flub, and it was pretty hilarious, to be honest — hilarious and sad, all at the same time.
They noted his obsessive lip-licking during his speech, connecting it to dry mouth, and citing that according to The Mayo Clinic, that it could be a symptom of nerve damage, stroke, or Alzheimer’s disease. They say it was purely out of concern that they mentioned those things. Whether or not it was sincere concern is up to the reader to determine or the writer to make clear.
The writers are most definitely not the only people to notice that Mr. Giuliani’s mental health is slipping away before all our eyes.
At this point, Rudy Giuliani is one hand-written cardboard sign away from being THAT crazy yelling homeless guy. pic.twitter.com/AuLmHYG7Bt

Trump & Giuliani are what happens when crazy old people have access to the internet.

Rudy Giuliani’s crazy claims about Clinton’s health do open him up to speculation about his own mental health, which we’ve all noticed.

Although their approach to Giuliani’s slipping mental health may seem a bit ill willed, a good point was made as to why any of this was brought up. Mr Giuliani had been making several ludicrous claims about the mental health of Hillary Clinton. He urged people to get on YouTube and watch videos so they could see for themselves how “ill” she really was. There is no evidence to his claims, but it doesn’t seem to matter to him at all.
