Golfer Michelle Wie West is slamming Trump lawyer and ally Rudy Giuliani for a perverse story he told about looking at her with Rush Limbaugh. Giuliani made the comments while appearing on Steve Bannon’s internet show.
Rudy Giuliani Told Lewd Story While Discussing Rush Limbaugh Death
Wie West Blasts Giuliani Remarks. “My putting stance six years ago was designed to improve my putting stats (I ended up winning the U.S. Open that year), NOT as an invitation to look up my skirt! It’s “unsettling to hear of this highly inappropriate story shared on a podcast by a public figure referencing my ‘panties,’ what this person should have remembered from that day, was the fact that I shot 64 and beat every male golfer in the field leading our team to victory. I shudder thinking that he was smiling to my face and complimenting me on my game while objectifying me and referencing my ‘panties’ behind my back all day. What should be discussed is the elite skill level that women play at, not what we wear or look like.” [Michelle Wie West]
Giuliani Talked About Looking At Wie West’s Panties. “Donald Trump’s former personal attorney was remembering Rush Limbaugh and recounted a “funny” story from when he and the late bigoted king of talk radio played in a golf tournament with Wie years ago. Giuliani called Wie “gorgeous” and said that, while putting, she “bends all the way over and her panties show.”” [HuffPost]
