Can Rudy Giuliani really go anywhere these days without making an embarrassing scene? Fresh off nine hours of testimony before the congressional committee investigating January 6, the once-respected former New York mayor and mob prosecutor was marching in the Celebrate Israel parade Sunday behind the new New York City mayor, Eric Adams, when he decided to step off the route to shout at some hecklers.
