Giuliani’s epic takedown of Lester Holt’s fact-checking of Trump on Fox and Friends is all over social media. In case you missed it, there was an equally impressive takedown of Hillary Clinton.
Giuliani destroyed Holt for “ignorantly” contradicting Trump on the Constitutionality of “stop and frisk” and went on to annihilate Holt’s “fact checking” point by point.

At the risk of starting another Second Amendment uproar, he said: “I’ll give her an excuse because she failed the bar exam.”
It’s no wonder mainstream media is silent. Hillary is a former Secretary of State, former Senator, former First Lady and governor’s wife. Before all that, she was an attorney – who failed her bar exam.
She did eventually pass the bar exam, but had to move from Washington, DC, to Arkansas to do so.
@hillaryclinton failed D.C. bar exam in the 1970s, moved to Arkansas only to corrupt the Rose Law Firm.

Trump favors stop and frisk, noting it made a difference to bring down crime in New York City. Hillary and the Left are opposed to it, they believe there is a racial component to it. Because of that, they apparently decided if they say it is unconstitutional, then it is.
but Giuliani had none of it. Terry v. Ohio, the SCOTUS ruling behind “stop and frisk,” has been the law of the land since 1968. Not only that , but it was an 8-1 decision. It was Earl Warren – who is often hailed as a liberal icon – who wrote the opinion for the majority.
Giuliani excused Lester Holt for his ignorant statement:
“But the thing that’s wrong is Lester Holt said straight out, “Stop and frisk is unconstitutional.” Lester Holt is not a lawyer. He’s wrong. … Every cop does stop and frisk in every part of America and she said the same thing. And I’ll give her an excuse because she failed the bar exam. ”
And there you have it.
Shouldn’t an attorney know of such a landmark decision. Not only that, but it was ruled 5 years before she tried and failed her bar exam.
She could have known about it just by reading the newspapers.
