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.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
