Eagle-eyed social media users roasted Rudy Giuliani on Tuesday for claiming on Facebook that he once served as Attorney General of the United States — a position he never held.
Giuliani, 75, was called on his apparent retroactive promotion after he tweeted out a link to his Facebook page, where the “About” page lists him as “Former Attorney General of the United States,” as well as a current “Government Official.”
The former two-term mayor of New York, who now acts as President Trump’s personal lawyer, did serve as Associate Attorney General from 1981 to 1983 during the Reagan administration, but never held the land’s highest legal post — a fact of which users were quick to remind him.
“Rudy Giuliani has never been Attorney General,” wrote @nycsouthpaw.
“1) You were never the Attorney General of the United States,” added @mvandemar. “2) You definitely are *not* currently a Government Official.”
The snark also flowed on the Facebook page itself.
“You were NEVER Attorney General of the United States,” wrote Ellen Spilka. “What is this?”
The blunder blew up one day after the publication of a rambling interview with Giuliani in New York magazine.
“If they’re investigating me, they’re a–holes,” he told the magazine of prosecutors in the Manhattan US Attorney’s Office, who he believes are out to get him over his role in the president’s Ukraine imbroglio. “They’re absolutely a–holes if they’re investigating me.”
Giuliani did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
