Rudy Giuliani left fuming at his own radio show after station adds disclaimer about his own views

Rudy Giuliani's embarrassing moments continue apace as he was left stunned by a disclaimer that was added to his own radio show without his knowledge.

The warning is now running at the start of Giuliani's show on WABC Radio telling listeners of the talk radio station that the views expressed on the former mayor of New York City's show are not representative of them.

"The views, assumptions and opinions expressed by former US attorney and former attorney to the president of the United States and New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, his guests and callers on his programme are strictly their own and do not necessarily represent the opinions, beliefs or policies of WABC Radio," says the disclaimer.

Giuliani clearly hadn't been made aware that this was going to be played before his show started. A flabbergasted Giuliani said, "I thought that they would have told me about that before doing what they just did," he exclaimed before adding that he felt "insulted."

Giuliani continued to rant and likened the move to further censorship of free speech and even compared it to East Germany (presumably during the Cold War).

"Gives you a sense of how far this free speech thing has gone. And how they frighten everybody. I mean, we’re in America, we’re not in East Germany," the 76-year-old said, adding: "They got to warn you about me? I’m going to have to give that a lot of consideration. I also think, putting it on without telling me, not the right thing to do. Not the right thing to do at all."

Despite this curveball, Giuliani continued his show as normal and went straight to his first caller which was Art from Westchester, who was warned by the attorney about expressing his own viewpoint on public radio. Unfortunately for Giuliani, Art wasn't on his side and had called to admonish him for spreading baseless conspiracy theories.

Art challenged Giuliani by saying "Do you ever feel somewhat guilty about spreading a lot of, you know, unproven conspiracy theories to folks who may not have the ability or the critical thinking skills to kind of look through it? I mean. Do you feel that maybe you’re taking advantage of the gullible? And that’s just an honest question."

In fairness to Giuliani, he didn't react in an angry manner to the question but did attempt to explain himself by sharing more baseless conspiracy theories about the voter fraud and the election, specifically highlight activity in Georgia that he deemed to be 'illegal' as well as Hunter Biden's laptop.

Things soon went a bit off the rails from there, when Giuliani asked Art to 'give evidence' of any voter fraud that Trump or the Republicans might have committed but is constantly cut off by Giuliani whenever he tries to say anything.

Giuliani was front and centre of Trump's attempts to overturn the election results last year but failed to uncover any concrete evidence and nearly all of their cases were thrown out of court.
