Giuliani’s epic takedown of Lester Holt’s fact-checking of Trump on Fox and Friends this morning is all over social media. But 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.

But, at the risk of starting another Second Amendment uproar, here’s the real kill shot: “I’ll give her an excuse because she failed the bar exam.”
It’s no wonder the mainstream media is silent. Hillary is supposed to be the smartest woman in the room. She’s a former Secretary of State with dozens of success stories (which no one can seem to remember), she’s a former Senator, a former First Lady, and a governor’s wife. And 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 it.

Trump has positioned himself as the law and order candidate and favors stop and frisk, noting it made a big difference to bring down crime in New York City. Hillary and the Left are opposed to it, believing there is a racial component to it. As such, they apparently decided that if they say it’s unconstitutional, that therefore it must be.
But Giuliani would have 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, it was an 8-1 decision. It was Earl Warren himself—who is often hailed as a liberal icon—who wrote the opinion for the majority.
Giuliani excused Lester Holt for his ignorance:
“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 it was. Boom. A devastating shot—only to be met by utter silence by the mainstream media.
Shouldn’t the “smartest woman in the room”—who is, in fact an attorney—know such a landmark decision? Not only that, but it was ruled on a mere 5 years before she tried, and failed, her bar exam. Set aside the reviews in law journals, she could have known about it simply by reading the newspapers.
Just imagine if it came out Donald Trump had failed his real estate test. There would be nothing else on the internet today.
