Rudy Giuliani is the former Mayor of New York City and current lawyer for President Trump in the Russia investigation. Because of those high profile jobs, he should probably be a little more careful not to take photos with known white supremacists. Faith Goldy is a far right wing YouTube personality turned Toronto Mayoral candidate who has peddled white nationalism and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
On Tuesday, she tweeted…
An honour to meet with America’s Mayor while on the campaign trail.
I can’t wait to become Canada’s Mayor!
— Faith J Goldy (@FaithGoldy) September 25, 2018
The caption reads…
“An honour to meet with America’s Mayor while on the campaign trail. I can’t wait to become Canada’s Mayor! Just like Giuliani cleaned up the streets of NYC, our tough on crime playbook is going to run illegal guns & gangs right out of Toronto!
Goldy covered the Charlottesville Rally for a right wing Canadian media organization called Rebel Media, but was fired after going on the air for an interview about it with the known neo-Nazi outlet The Daily Stormer. She also urged people to read an anti-Semitic book about ‘eliminating the Jewish menace’ written by a prominent Romanian fascist leader. Giuliani has yet to comment on why or how the photo-op happened.
But people seemed unsurprised…

Others were not having Goldy styling herself as “Canada’s Mayor”…
Another Person from Toronto that think they are the centre of the universe

I get faking it until you make it but you can’t seriously think you’re going to be our mayor?

That's not how being mayor works.

Canada's mayor? Oh FFS.

And many had harsh words for Rudy Giuliani…
He isn't America's mayor any more than you will ever be anything more than Canada's embarrassment

I've been a NYer for 69 years. It's long past time to disabuse yourself of the notion that guiliani was ever “America's Mayor.” As mayor, he was nasty, viscious, vindictive – in short – trump on a local level. He's no hero, he never was.

Uhm, Faithy- rudy was never America’s mayor.He was in his very losing last weeks as NY’s Mayor when 9/11 saved him and GW Bush from themselves. Don’t copy rudy’s self-serving exploits. It’s a guaranteed loser scheme.
