Rudy Giuliani trolled after YouTube suspends him again over election fraud videos: 'He should be disbarred'
The attorney’s channel will be blocked from posting content for two weeks for violating YouTube's 'election integrity policy'
Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani had his youTube account suspended for a second time on Monday, March 1. This time, his account was suspended for violating YouTube's “sale of regulated goods policy" and its “election integrity policy.” Giuliani will lose access to posting privileges two weeks this time, as well as access to live-streaming. This is Giuliani's 'second strike', if he violates another policy within the next month, he could lose access permanently.
Giuliani's account was first suspended in January 2021 for posting unsubstantiated claims about the 2020 Presidential elections. It is unclear what the content of his latest video had that forced YouTube to suspend the account. Giuliani is strongly behind Trump's theory that the election was stolen, and even fought for Trump in multiple court cases, all of which failed. He also made a speech on January 6 prior to the insurrection, telling attendees "let's have a trial by combat".
Giuliani suspended for lies and nicotine promotion
The last video posted to Giuliani's account is five days ago and talks about the pandemic. It is unclear if his account is suspended for an old video, or a new one that was also taken down. According to a YouTube spokesperson, "We removed content from the Rudy W. Giuliani channel for violating our sale of regulated goods policy, which prohibits content facilitating the use of nicotine, and our presidential election integrity policy.”
The company said that Giuliani's account featured "content facilitating the use of nicotine." Giuliani is known for advertising cigar companies in his videos like Famous Smoke. Despite regularly using the platform, Giuliani has often complained about the 'censorship' conservatives face on YouTube. Back in January, he told the Washington Post, "It’s a very, very seductive road to authoritarianism."
Twitter divided over suspension
Many users took to Twitter to celebrate the suspension. One user posted "Why did they wait till after the election". Another said, "Rudy Giuliani should be disbarred." Another said: "What the hell is wrong with that man? He just never learns! He really should be locked up! Wonder why he had not." Another said: They let him back? And then kicked him out again? Remember the Olde Quote: "Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, can't get fooled again."

However, not everyone was happy. Many took to Twitter to voice their displeasure. One user said, "You mean he refuses to believe your damned lies". Another user who seemed disappointed said: 'Well fasism finds a good definition with youtube." Another complained " But the liberals keep on lying. When they are banned then shit will hit the fan. Banning for an opinion is wrong."
