MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell ripped former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for choosing to put the city’s Emergency Command and Control Center in the World Trade Center despite being advised by professionals in his administration not to place it in an “obvious terrorism target.”

Know this. There is no more fraudulent public image in our politics than Rudy Giuliani, hero Of 9/11.”
