‘Brainwashed A**hole!’: Rudy Giuliani Scolds Heckler During Parade


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Former New York City Republican Mayor Rudy Giuliani scolded a heckler on Sunday during the Celebrate Israel Parade.

Giuliani was marching behind current NYC Democratic Mayor Eric Adams in the parade when someone standing off to the side began yelling at him.

The Forward’s Jacob Kornbluh attended the parade and happened to capture Giuliani’s interaction with the person on video.


After the person got Giuliani’s attention, the former mayor stepped over to one of the metal barriers marking off the parade route.

It’s unclear what the person said, but Giuliani responded by comparing his record as Mayor to that of Adams in terms of lowering crime.

“Crime was down 65% under me, it’s up 40% under him,” Giuliani can be heard saying in the clip.

“You bet! You are right!” one woman on the sidelines agreed with Giuliani.

“I reduced crime, you jackass!” Giuliani yelled back at the heckler.


“You are a brainwashed a**hole!” Giuliani said. “You are probably as demented as Biden!”


Giuliani, who has also served as a personal attorney to former President Donald Trump, recently made a surprise appearance that had some Hollywood liberals in a tantrum.


During a taping of “The Masked Singer,” the former mayor took off his mask as one of the participants and two judges, Alan Thicke and Ken Jeong, walked off the stage.

The show is known for its jaw-dropping surprises when celebrity contestants shed their headpieces after they are eliminated. The reaction to Giuliani was perhaps the most polarizing the show has seen since 2020. The Masked Singer faced criticism when another controversial Republican politician, Sarah Palin, was unveiled as The Bear.

Two other judges, Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger, stayed on the stage.

But if these celebrities are triggered by the presence of Giuliani they should prepare to see a ton more of former President Trump.


At his most recent rally, he gave a glimpse into what it would be like to have him back in the White House.

Among the topics he discussed were federal workers who have either been fired or forced to resign for not capitulating to President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate.

“Next year, a Republican Congress should pass a bill rehiring every single member of the military who was cruelly and wrongfully terminated by Joe Biden and his ridiculous COVID mandate,” he said to the crowd at his Save America rally in Conroe, Texas, on Saturday. “And force the Pentagon to give these patriots an apology and full back pay.”

“If I run, and if I win, we will treat those people from January 6 fairly. We will treat them fairly,” he said as the crowd cheered.


“If that requires pardons, we will give them pardons, because they are being treated so unfairly,” the former president pledged.

“This hasn’t happened to all of the other atrocities that took place recently, what that un-select committee is doing and what the people are doing who are running those prisons — it’s a disgrace,” he argued.

“We will treat them fairly and we will take care of the people of this country,” he said.
