Throughout Donald Trump’s rise to the top of the Republican party, Rudy Giuliani has emerged as one of the real estate mogul’s most emphatic surrogates, consistently backing Trump even at his most controversial moments.

But don’t expect the children of New York City’s former mayor to share his enthusiasm. Yep, Politico reports Caroline Rose Giuliani intends to vote for Hillary Clinton, a woman her father once described as “too stupid” to be president. And unlike other children of prominent Republican families who have stopped short of a full endorsement of Clinton, Caroline has made her choice crystal clear:

 

Caroline told Politico that her father is aware of her intentions to cast her vote for Clinton, insisting that he’s “fully comfortable” with the decision. But based on Giuliani’s recent assertion that Trump is more fit for office because Clinton is a woman, we’re guessing that dad’s relaxed response might have more to do with indifference to his daughter’s political preferences. After all, she’s a woman too.

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
