Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, has publicly criticized WABC radio station following his abrupt dismissal last Friday. Giuliani attributed his termination to the station's efforts to curry favor with President Joe Biden, whom he derogatorily referred to as a “trailer trash little creep”.

His comments came during his program on Twitter/X, formerly known as America’s Mayor Live, where he expressed his belief that his firing was politically motivated. Giuliani accused the station’s billionaire owner, John Catsimatidis, of silencing him to prevent him from discussing what he believes to be the truth about the 2020 presidential election.

“The Democrat thing has something to do with it. And the fact that the Bidens are really zeroing in, now, on interference with the 2024 election,” Giuliani claimed. He added that Biden’s alleged targeting of him began during his candidacy with a letter urging networks to keep Giuliani off the air.

John Catsimatidis, who is also a Republican donor, told The New York Times that the decision to terminate Giuliani’s show, which has now been canceled, was due to Giuliani’s repeated failure to adhere to the station’s policy regarding election misinformation.

“We’re not going to talk about fallacies of the November 2020 election,” Catsimatidis stated, highlighting that Giuliani had been warned multiple times before his firing.

Giuliani's Public Outcry

Catsimatidis explained that Giuliani had become increasingly belligerent after being informed of his suspension and impending absence from his scheduled 3pm show.

Giuliani’s response was fraught with indignation. “What John Catsimatidis has done is disgraceful,” he declared on his show, accusing Catsimatidis of undermining free speech. Giuliani’s forcible removal from the airwaves occurred after he attempted to discuss election-related issues live, which led to the station cutting off his broadcast, as reported by The New York Times.

This incident marks a significant setback for Giuliani, who has used the platform extensively to communicate with the public and was a major source of his advertising revenue. The ramifications of Giuliani's firing extend beyond the loss of his radio platform.

He is currently facing a criminal trial over charges related to attempts to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia and Arizona. Additionally, Giuliani has been disbarred in both Washington DC and New York. Despite these challenges, Giuliani remains vocal, challenging the station’s policy and its impact on free speech, even as he prepares for his upcoming legal battles.
