According to a Monday report, the son of New York City’s former mayor, Rudy Giuliani, has become an official member of the Trump administration.
Politico reported that Andrew Giuliani, 31, will work in the Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs.
One of Andrew Giuliani’s new responsibilities will be assisting with the organization of the upcoming visit of the New England Patriots, the Super Bowl champions, to the White House.
When asked about hiring Giuliani, a White spokeswoman didn’t respond.
Rudy Giuliani, former NYC mayor, was one of the early supporters of Trump… and one of the most vocal. Reportedly, he had once been considered for several prominent roles on the cabinet, including secretary of state.
He withdrew his name from consideration for any post in December.
But in January, he signed on as an adviser to Trump regarding cybersecurity issues.
The younger Giuliani, whose mother Donna Hanover was the former Hizzoner’s second wife, made headlines as early as 1994, when his dad was sworn in as New York’s mayor.
At the inauguration ceremony itself, as Giuliani took the oath of office, his son stood nearby with his right hand in the air, mimicking the words his dad was saying.
And during the mayor’s speech, the younger Giuliani, standing beside his father’s podium, smiled, waved at and blew kisses to members of the audience as his dad spoke.
The scenario was comically interpreted by Saturday Night Live weeks later.
In a memorable opening skit, Chris Farley, playing the younger Giuliani, hugs his dad (played by Kevin Nealon), climbs on the podium, screams, “my dad’s mayor,” and bearhugs Tim Meadows, playing former Mayor David Dinkins.
Years later, in 2008, the younger Giuliani was in the news again after he sued Duke University after he was cut from the school’s varsity golf team.
In his lawsuit, he claimed he’d been promised a place on the team.
A judge later tossed the case.
