- ‘You can go cry then,’ Giuliani said, if the country’s economy didn’t improve with the brash businessman in charge
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani didn’t have much sympathy for young people upset over the election of Republican Donald Trump.
‘The reality is they’re a bunch of spoiled crybabies,’ Giuliani, who may become Trump’s attorney general, said this morning on ‘Fox & Friends.’
Giuliani was responding to reports coming from campuses that colleges are holding ‘cry-ins,’ bringing in therapy dogs and allowing students to play with Play-Doh or color with crayons.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani called students who needed therapy dogs and Play-Doh to get over the election a ‘bunch of spoiled crybabies’
The former mayor said he believed that ‘most of the kids aren’t crying.’
‘Most of the kid are going to class,’ he argued.
Giuliani said he thought there was an uptick in Republicans among the nation’s youngest voters.
‘I speak at a lot of colleges campuses and what I find is, this might be a somewhat heartening fact, we are growing up a slightly higher percentage of conservative students now than we used to, because they are rebelling against the professors,’ Giuliani explained.
‘And if you’re looking at the real left-wing loonies on the campus it’s the professors not the students. So these are probably the ones more influenced by the professors,’ he added.
Giuliani believed that the young people who did vote for Trump, did so because the businessman’s economic message resonated with them.
‘I got to get a job when I leave here,’ Giuliani said he believed was many students’ mentality.
Asked by the morning show hosts if Trump should also label some of his youngest constituents ‘cry babies,’ Giuliani said the president-elect should probably take a more thoughtful approach.
‘You should find a way to listen and talk about it and say to them, look you’re overdoing it, take awhile and evaluate my presidency in a year from now,’ Giuliani said.
The former New York City mayor said that Trump should say, ‘Calm down, things are not as bad as you think’ and ‘give me a year.’
Giuliani said that if after a year the economic conditions haven’t improved than young people can be upset.
‘You can go cry then,’ the ex-mayor said.
