Rudy Giuliani got a Bronx birthday cheer at Yankee Stadium

Rudy Giuliani, the former federal prosecutor who became a celebrated two-time mayor of New York City, ran for president, and is now one of President Trump's lawyers, decided to celebrate his 74th birthday at Yankee Stadium on Monday. When they announced his birthday, the crowd booed.

As New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman notes, this is probably a dispiriting hometown welcome for not just Giuliani but also his famous and criticism-averse client, who owns some property in the city and presumably planned to retire there. Trump has options, though — maybe Miami Marlins fans are a bit less ... boisterous.
