A Message to You, Rudy: Decades of Despicable Behavior End with an Arrest, Mug Shot, Fingerprinting, $150,000 Bail


The Specials once sang “A Message to You Rudy” which was not about Rudolph Giuliani but has come to have new meaning over time.

New Yorkers despised when he was mayor. He lost his mind a long time ago. After Gracie Mansion — and his affairs, let’s not forget — Rudy went from hating Donald Trump to becoming his stooge. And this is where it’s landed him.

Whatever happens next is the cherry on top of the sundae. But what satisfaction to see this clown brought finally to his knees.
