‘Maybe I could be the other October surprise’ [Video]

Caroline Rose Giuliani, daughter of President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, appeared on The Rachel Maddow Show Thursday night where she spoke about an article she wrote for Vanity Fair that was published earlier in the day urging Americans to vote for Joe Biden. In the article, Caroline wrote about a corrupt and toxic Trump administration, and invited readers to join her in fighting to “end Donald Trump’s reign of terror.” 

Just a day earlier, an explosive New York Post article, with which Rudy was involved, was published claiming to prove shady actions by both Biden and his son Hunter with regard to Ukraine. But instead of being the October surprise Rudy may have expected, the article was met with scrutiny due to unreliable sources, and is even being investigated as part of a foreign intelligence operation. The White House was reportedly warned last year that Rudy was the target of an influence operation by Russian intelligence. As her father’s attempt at an October surprise may have fallen flat, Caroline said this was an October surprise of her own.

“I think a lot of people can relate to despair over politics and that’s really what I wanted to speak to,” Caroline said. “I don’t have any—you know, I live in L.A., I don’t have any inside information or anything like that. But I just thought maybe I could be the other October surprise, ya know?”

Caroline said she has not spoken to her father since her article was published, but was optimistic about his reaction.

“We haven’t spoken since the article was published, but—so I’m not sure how he feels,” Caroline said, “but I know that if I were him I would be very proud to have a daughter who’s using her voice for what she believes in.”

Maddow asked about her father’s erratic behavior in interviews, but Caroline said that’s not the aspect of his behavior that causes concern.

“I’ve certainly been concerned about his public behavior, not for those reasons per se, but just because he’s involved in this whole group of people doing these things,” Caroline said. “So I think it’s less about him specifically and more about this mob mentality that has been created, and that he’s feeding, unfortunately.”

The Rachel Maddow Show airs weeknights at 9 p.m. on MSNBC.
