Doubling down on his recent comments that President Barack Obama does not love America, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani this week went further, saying the president also “hates salt water pools.”
“For everything that we know today about the health benefits of swimming in salt water, it is very telling that the president chooses not to swim in salt water pools,” Giuliani said. “My sources tell me that he simply hates salt water pools.”
Giuliani said that in addition to being a healthy alternative for your skin, salt water swimming pools have several advantages over chlorine pools, including fewer chemicals, lower cost of upkeep and minimal maintenance.
“Salt is a lot softer on skin, hair and eyes than chlorine and doesn’t cause irritation like chlorine, so no red irritated eyes, no itchy, irritated skin and it’s a lot less harsh on your hair,” he added. “I just think it’s very irresponsible of the president to be on the wrong side of this issue.”
Giuliani emphasized that he is not criticizing the president’s love or hate for pools and salt in general.
“Let me be clear, I am not saying that the president hates pools, and I am not saying that the president hates salt. What I am saying, what I understand, is that the president hates salt water pools.”
And not one to let conspiracy theories die, Giuliani continued, “Let me go one step further here. If the president was in fact really and truly born in Hawaii, as he claims he was, wouldn’t he of all people enjoy salt water? I mean, it’s Hawaii. It’s surrounded by salt water. People go there for the beaches. All this just doesn’t add up.”
