A Staten Island ShopRite grocery store employee, 39, clapped former Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, on the back. It began with a minor verbal altercation and ended with Giuliani pressing charges against the man.

Giuliani said he wanted the employee charged regardless of how minor the infraction against him. The former mayor compared the situation to his days of “policing’ New York:

“If you don’t stop it at this stage, it just gets worse and worse and worse.’

But a surveillance video caught the incident on camera. On it we see a man come up to Giuliani and say:

‘What’s up, scumbag?’

Then, he clapped Giuliani on the back with an open hand and kept on moving. The former mayor appeared surprised, but not hurt. And he kept his balance.

Later Giuliani said:

‘This has to stop. This is getting ridiculous. I’ve been in politics 50 years, I’ve never been attacked like this.’

Giuliani claimed that the clap on his back left red welts, but it did not break the skin:

‘My back hurts, but otherwise I’m able to walk and stuff like that. He almost knocked me down. Thank God for a 78-year-old, I am in pretty good shape.’

He told The New York Times:

‘The one thing he said that was political was ‘you’re going to kill women, you’re going to kill women.’

One of the witnesses, Rita Rugova-Johnson said, according to The New York Post:

‘I was shoulder-to-shoulder with Rudy inside ShopRite. We’re talking, and all of a sudden an employee came out of nowhere and open-handedly slapped him in the back and said, “Hey, what’s up scumbag?” [The attacker] was on duty at the time, The cops arrested him.’

The alleged attacker’s name has not yet been released, but the charge was “second-degree assault involving a person over age 65,” according to police.

His son Andrew Giuliani released a statement indicating that he and the elder Giuliani would “not be intimidated by left-wing attacks.” Rudy Giuliani had intended to pass out fliers for his son prior to his upcoming Republican governor primary.

The ShopRite grocery chain released a statement that read it had “zero tolerance for aggression toward anyone.”

Giuliani indicated that the incident may have been related to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. He was against abortion before he was for abortion then he was against it. During his radio show, he commented:

‘[I went through] a torturous, intellectual, and emotional and moral situation with abortion.’

Apparently, Giuliani will be strictly hands-off.
