They say that the fish stinks from the head down. Donald Trump has been embattled in court over sexual affairs, sexual abuse, and cover ups. Apparently, at least some of his appointees seem to be following the boss’s lead.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani may have just been living in a universe parallel to 45’s. The three-time married man appeared to be well on his way to his latest divorce.
It is ironic that Trump chose Giuliani to be his television attack pug attorney because the former mayor has been trying to defend the president against some of the very things that he is currently doing himself.
The attorney was seen cheating on his wife with a women whose husband is a friend of his. Maria Rosa Ryan is 53, 21 years Giuliani’s junior, and works as a New Hampshire hospital administrator.
The former mayor said she was a friend and “so is her husband,” according to Page Six:
‘I do know Dr. Ryan. She is a friend of mine, so is her husband, Bob. She’s a Ph.D. and a very, very fine woman.’
Five days after he was caught at a resort hotel, his current wife, Judith Nathan, separated from him. She also filed for divorce.
The attorney’s marriage to his first wife and his second cousin lasted 14 years. After being married for 18 years to his second wife, Donna Hanover, she threw him out of the mayor’s mansion while he was still in office for cheating. Giuliani married Nathan in 2003.
Giuliani said that the couple had dinner and caught a movie but justified it by saying he was already “in effect separated” from his wife.
Nathan was angry and released this statement:
‘My husband’s denial of the affair with the married Mrs. Ryan is as false as his claim that we were separated when he took up with her.’
Ryan said that the hospital where she works has “the newest technologies:”
‘(It) was among the first hospitals in the nation to adopt the newest technologies’’ — and “that’s why we get a lot of attention from people like Rudy Giuliani.’
A server at the restaurant said that “the woman went back to his room with him”:
‘We were all surprised because he is really getting on in years, and she was quite a bit younger than him. We were all like, ‘Hmmm.’
A hotel employee said:
‘(Giuliani) was VIP, so when he requested the movies, I made sure to have them ready for him. We all recognized him right away. We were all very impressed.’
Giuliani weasel-worded about their alleged sexual relationship:
‘I never spent the night with her. There’s no proof. There can’t be because we never did anything.’
Giuliani confirmed he was divorcing:
‘In these divorce situations you cannot place blame, it is 50/50. There are problems on both sides.’
For an attorney, it is a surprise that he and Nathan do not have a prenuptial agreement. Now, they are fighting over their approximate shared $30 million in assets.
