    The Spin

    Republican narrative

    This attack is just further proof that the Left has determined violence should be the answer to everyone and everything they disagree with. Attacking "America's Mayor" is crazy, but even crazier is the Left's contempt for civility and peaceful discourse.

    Democratic narrative

    It's not shocking that someone who's still trying to sell the lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen is exaggerating what took place here. Surveillance video shows Giuliani receiving a light tap on the back. This isn't an attack by a political opponent, just an opportunity by Giuliani and his son to create an overblown viral incident to fit their "tough on crime" narrative.
