Caroline Rose Giuliani came out with her 2020 Presidential endorsement of former Vice President Joe Biden despite her father, Rudy Giuliani's smear campaign against the Presidential hopeful. She also supported former candidate Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in 2016.
As the daughter of the former New York mayor, alternative fact supporter and Trump loyalist, Caroline Giuliani wrote a blistering piece in Vanity Fair calling out the current political environment saying "corruption starts with 'yes-men' and women."
The younger Giuliani explained her reasoning in the article saying she grew up with "the kind of cruel, selfish politics Donald Trump has now inflicted on our country."
She recalled a conversation with her father from her past.
"Even though he was considered socially moderate for a Republican back in the day, we still often butted heads. When I tried to explain my belief that you don't get to be considered benevolent on LGBTQ+ rights just because you have gay friends but don't support gay marriage."
She took issue with her father's response.
"I distinctly remember him firing back with an intensity fit for an opposing politician rather than one's child."
She pointed out Trump and his staunch supporters used the presidency "to stoke the injustice that already permeated our society, taking it to dramatically new, Bond-villain heights."
What heights did she specifically mention?
In the four years since President Trump's inauguration the Trump administration abolished protections preventing healthcare providers from discriminating against LGBTQ patients, banned transgender people from the military and encouraged the Supreme Court to allow people to be discriminated against and fired for being a member of the LGTBQ community.
These core Trump values differ from what Biden, Harris and their supporters believe.
She warned of the dangers of creating an uncontested "echo chamber" for those in power.
"If being the daughter of a polarizing mayor who became the president's personal bulldog has taught me anything, it is that corruption starts with 'yes-men' and women, the cronies who create an echo chamber of lies and subservience to maintain their proximity to power."
"We've seen this ad nauseam with Trump and his cadre of high-level sycophants (the ones who weren't convicted, anyway)."
She also highlighted the contrast between Trump's need to be surrounded by "yes men" and Biden's ability to respect those with differing perspectives.
Biden even selected Senator Kamala Harris (R-CA) who originally ran against him in the primaries. Which Caroline Giuliani said speaks volumes about how inclusive Biden will be.
"The very notion of 'bipartisanship' may seem painfully ludicrous right now, but we need a path out of impenetrable gridlock and vicious sniping."
"In Joe Biden, we'll have a leader who prioritizes common ground and civility over alienation, bullying, and scorched-earth tactics."
"Biden wasn't my first choice when the primaries started. But I know what is at stake, and Joe Biden will be everyone's president if elected."
Twitter users showed support for Caroline Giuliani and her assessment.
Giuliani's central theme in her essay was people deserve to be represented, to be who they are without discrimination and to be served by a government that respects them. She believes that will only happen with a new occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
