Michelle Wie West addressed Rudy Giuliani’s highly inappropriate comments he made about her during a recent podcast appearance.
On Thursday, the former New York City mayor told a story on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast about looking up the golfer’s skirt at a charity pro-am several years ago.
I had to hear it so you do too:
Rudy Giuliani tells an absolutely disgusting story about golfing with Rush Limbaugh

“On the green is Michelle Wie and she is getting ready to putt,” “Now Michelle Wie is gorgeous. She’s 6 feet. And she has a strange putting stance. She bends all the way over. And her panties show. And the press was going crazy. … I said ‘[Rush], it’s not me, it’s not you.’”
This person somehow translated Rudy’s slurring enough to pinpoint the exact time and place of this story. As an opposition researcher I can only stand back and marvel https://t.co/i01ollnNaO

A justifiably disgusted Wie took to Twitter to slam Giuliani over his creepy comments.
“It’s unsettling to hear of this highly inappropriate story shared on a podcast by a public figure referencing my ‘panties’ whilst playing in a charity pro-am,”
“What this person should have remembered from that day was the fact that I shot 64 and beat every male golfer in the field leading our team to victory. I shudder thinking he was smiling to my face and complimenting my game while objectifying me and referencing my ‘panties’ behind my back all day,” Wie tweeted.
“What should be discussed is the elite skill level that women play at, not what we wear or look like. My putting stance six years ago was designed to improve my putting stats (I ended up winning the US Open that year), NOT as an invitation to look up my skirt!”
