Eric Adams urges prosecutors to prosecute Rudy Giuliani

Mayor Eric Adams has urged Staten Island Attorney Mike McMahon to consider prosecuting ex-Mayor Rudy Giuliani for allegedly filing a false police report, to which Giuliani responded by asking Adams to quit because of the city’s crime crisis.

“[Giuliani] falsely reported a crime, and prosecutors should take that seriously,” Hizzoner said during an appearance on The Daily Show Tuesday night, where he both mocked and despised Giuliani in the ongoing dispute between the two.

“You do not understand it. They just attacked me,” Adams said deadly after host Trevor Noah hugged him upon entry – a clear jab at the former mayor.

Giuliani was chatting with locals after returning from the men’s room at the Staten Island ShopRite on Sunday when store employee Daniel Gill appeared behind him and slapped him on the back, video of the incident shows. The former mayor and legal adviser to Donald Trump, who served two terms in office, was at a loss for his son Andrew, who was running for governor in the Republican primary.

Gill, 39, was initially charged with second-degree assault in the incident – although the charges were reduced to third-degree molestation and molestation. Giuliani said he felt like “someone shot me” when Gill punched him in the back from behind, while CCTV showed a brief and non-violent encounter.

“This person he falsely reported spent 24 hours in jail. This is unacceptable,” Adams said, continuing his criticism, which he first leveled earlier Tuesday, of the man hailed as “America’s Mayor” after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack.

Adams then referred to the case of Amy Cooper – the “Karen” from Central Park who sparked international outrage in 2020 when she called the police about a black bird watcher who asked her to put her dog on a leash. She falsely claimed on a second 911 call that he tried to attack her.

“I’ll call the prosecutor. We have to be consistent. If the tape hadn’t been there, imagine what would have happened to that man,” the mayor said.

Giuliani then discharged Adams.

“I never filed a police report, unlike the lying mayor who has more than crime [Bill] by Blasio. There were five witnesses,” Giuliani said.

“That’s why he’s acting like a stubborn kid. Instead of attacking a senior, he should prevent crimes against seniors,” added the 78-year-old.

“This guy’s a fucking loser. If you have a higher crime rate than de Blasio, you should resign.”

Giuliani said he had four calls with McMahon’s office, none to investigate him. He said prosecutors should press charges against police officers on allegations of false reporting — and that’s not happening.

Adams churned on during the Daily Show hit, saying Giuliani had other issues with his role in advising Trump during the Jan. 6, 2021 riots in the US Capitol.

“What’s interesting is that when you saw that testimony in Washington, he has some other things to deal with as well,” Adams said, before continuing to pound Giuliani at an event Wednesday morning.

“One person was jailed for 24 hours because of his report to the police,” the mayor said. “This person’s life was changed because — as we’ve all seen, a pat on the back — wasn’t a slap on the head, nobody was thrown to the ground.”

“I think the prosecution should look at that and determine what the bottom line is.”
