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.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press.
