Rudy Giuliani’s daughter has revealed that she is voting for Joe Biden in the upcoming election, despite the fact her famous father is one of President Trump’s staunchest supporters.
In an essay penned for Vanity Fair on Thursday, Caroline Giuliani, 31, savages the Commander-in-chief and asks readers to cast their ballots for Democrats in order to end a ‘reign of terror’.
‘We are hanging by a single, slipping finger on a cliff’s edge, and the fall will be fatal. If we remove ourselves from the fight, our country will be in freefall,’ Caroline writes.
But while she offers up a scathing assessment of Trump, Caroline’s most stinging remarks are reserved for her dad – whom she accuses of being a ‘sycophant’.

Republican Rudy, who served as mayor of New York City from 1994 until 2001, currently works as President Trump’s personal lawyer and is well-regarded as one of his closest allies.
Earlier this week, he provided the New York Post with a cache of e-mails from Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, in the hopes of derailing the Democrat’s presidential bid.
‘If being the daughter of a polarizing mayor who became the president’s personal bulldog has taught me anything, it is that corruption starts with ‘yes-men’ and women,’ Caroline writes in her essay.
‘[They] are cronies who create an echo chamber of lies and subservience to maintain their proximity to power. We’ve seen this ad nauseam with Trump and his cadre of high-level sycophants’.
Caroline – a Harvard grad who now describes herself as ‘a filmmaker in the LGBTQ+ community’ – is one of two children Rudy shares with his ex-wife, Donna Hanover.
But while Caroline has defected to the Democrats, her older brother, Andrew, is more in lockstep with their dad. He currently works as the Public Liaison Assistant to President Trump.

In her Vanity Fair essay, Caroline admits that relations with her father have significantly soured ‘in Trump’s era of chest-thumping partisan tribalism’.
However, she says that she has long clashed with her dad, and has suffered ‘decades of despair over politics’.
‘Around the age of 12, I would occasionally get into debates with my father, probably before I was emotionally equipped to handle such carnage,’ she confesses in the piece.
‘It was disheartening to feel how little power I had to change his mind, no matter how logical and above-my-pay-grade my arguments were.’

She continues: ‘Over the years other subjects like racial sensitivity (or lack thereof), sexism, policing, and the social safety net have all risen to this boiling point in me.
‘It felt important to speak my mind, and I’m glad we at least managed to communicate at all. But the chasm was painful.’
While Caroline says she had an ‘extremely privileged childhood’ and is ‘grateful for everything she has been given’, she admits that she does not like to tell people who her father is.
The filmmaker claims that revealing her dad’s identity is ‘a difficult confession—something I usually save for at least the second date.’
The 2020 presidential election is not the first time Caroline has publicly revealed her political views.
She previously told Politico that she supported Hillary Clinton’s run for the White House in 2016. She also met with Biden’s Vice Presidential pick, Kamala Harris, earlier this year.
