Giuliani Tells a 'Joke' Michelle Wie Reacts


Recommended Posts

 Apparently Rudy Giuliani was reminiscing with Steve Bannon about a round of golf with the late Rush Limbaugh, published after the fact on Bannon's podcast.  Apparently the one thing Giuliani remembered was Michelle Wie's putting style, and the view it offered.   Michelle has reacted through Twitter, taking exception with Rudy's comments, and suggesting that her skill as a player should be more important than her physical appearance..

Michelle Wie West took to Twitter on Friday night to express outrage over a story former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani told on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast Thursday. “Do you have time for …

Twitter is, as always, abuzz!

As always, this should not be viewed through a lens of politics, but it raises a bunch of questions.  I'm going to leave it there, and hope the TST members can discuss this with an appropriate level of sensitivity.  I'll add my own feelings in a little bit.

Dude. That’s only a few steps away from “that woman was asking for it, did you see how she was dressed?” Actually that’s basically what you just said.

If you had read her response, you might have noticed that she discusses her choice of attire, the Nike skirts with shorts built in.  These "skorts" are pretty common for women golfers of all ages, inc

There’s a difference between admiring how attractive another person is and simply being lewd. This is pretty skeevy.

I think we can put politics safely aside and say Rudy has had a heck of a come down since his days as mayor of NYC and the Mafia Commission trial.

Yeah, but I am surprised by how dense he has turned out to be. 

Honestly, I don't see what is there to discuss.

One topic this brings to my mind is how we "evaluate" golfers, how we separate physical attractiveness from performance on the course.  I've always thought of Michelle Wie as a very attractive young woman, and at the same time admired her golfing skills.  I don't believe she's ever specifically "used" her appearance (ala Paige Spiranac) as a route to success, although I'm sure her appearance has made her more valuable from a sponsorship and endorsement standpoint.

I'm a guy, and not a young one.  I notice the physical appearance and clothing of women players.  And I'll be honest, I may from time to time, in the right company, mention how attractive a player is.  I'll also mention how attractive I find some musicians, or actresses, or restaurant workers, or whatever. Hopefully I will always refrain from commenting on a woman's underwear, even in the company of a bunch of male friends.  And I'll definitely avoid those comments when in front of a camera.  Giuliani is a buffoon.

Ok, I can identify 100 percent. But it's not even about golfers but women in general. It's hard to not notice when something attractive is right front of you. I get it.

I believe the difference between you (as well I personally know you) and RG is what you said in your second paragraph. The filter between head and mouth is completely missing. It's either because there is a of complete lack of tact or because he is a straight up dick.

I am thinking its both. It's sad because there was a time as @mcanadiens pointed out, when we looked up to him.

Which is the reason I left Tweeter years ago. It’s a cesspool. FB is too. I am now into antisocial networking.

I'm with you on this. 
What the Hell was he thinking????

In all honesty, what a stupid thing to say.

I find no fault with you there! But you weren’t a high profile political personality discussing it on a public interview.....I don’t think any of us mortal men would fault with the old man for not turning his eyes away (as we would all be guilty at times)...just dumb to discuss it publicly

Its why I am very specific with who I follow on Twitter and have my settings pretty strict. Its also why I never read comments at all. Twitter with out comments would probably be way better.

Twitter is all comments. You can choose who you care to read though.

Giuliani is a classic example of a buffoon and a sexist one at that. In his twisted brain he probably thinks Michelle wie is an exhibitionist also.

To appreciate the female form is totally fine. It works both ways; My wife/sister/mom have all admitted to me that they enjoy certain NBA players because the men are super fit and have great bodies. Obviously beach volleyball, women's tennis, even figure skating and Hell, ballroom dancing, enjoy some benefit from the fact that they often have attractive participants. 

Having said that, there's a difference between saying "I enjoy watching fit females perform at a high level because I find them very attractive" or something like that. 

RG said something stupid about her panties and sounded not only like a perv but did so on a forum which he had to know would be rebroadcast for the masses.... to which I say "WHAT AN MORON!"

    • My answer is no. I agree that it sucks when it happens, but I like the "play the course as you find it" concept. I don't have a lot of friends who play golf, but a few of them who play more frequently make up a rule for free drops from fairway divots. Their rationale is that they rarely hit in the fairway, so when the do, they shouldn't be penalized by a random bad lie. They don't keep handicaps, and only play skins matches amongst themselves, so as far as I am concerned, they can make up whatever rules they want.  
    • Congratulations. 16 yards is a ton. I'm curious. First, how did you arrive at 17 yards? Did you hit a bunch with your old gamer and then hit the SIM2? Second, What did you replace with the SIM2? And had you been fitted for that one?   
    • I've heard this rule suggested over and over again. I'm interested to hear what you all think. Should free drops be allowed from fairway divots? What about pick clean and place from a fairway divot?  Golf World Reacts To Paige Spiranac’s Bold Rules Suggestion Is golf in need of a rules change? Paige Spiranac believes so after watching the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday. On the final hole of the tournament, Lee Westwood smoked his drive down the fairway...    
    • A worst-ball scramble does not sound fun to me. It reminds me of some of the awful high school football conditioning drills our coach had us do at the end of practice. For example, each position group would have to run a quarter mile in full pads at the end of a 3 hour practice. The RB/WR groups had 60 seconds (not totally sure on the time, it was over 25 years ago). If anyone didn't finish in time, we had to do it again. And again. And again. Until everyone made it in the allotted time. It was completely miserable. That said, "fun" is personal preference. My sister loves running marathons, which sounds awful to me.
    • Hey All,  I just purchased a new SIM2, and boy oh boy am I excited.     Now, I don't want to sing the praises of the Sim2 too much here, because, honestly, I was getting very similar results from the new Cobra and Callaway as well.   But, while getting fit,..   ball speed was up, and launch angle and spin rate were much improved.  Also, it appeared I was making pretty significant gains in dispersion as well.   I know a lot of this has to do with the shaft I was fitted for, every bit as much (if not more than the head).    anyways, I'm excited.   thanks all.
