Rudy Giuliani’s 22-year-old influencer/publicist suddenly quit working for him


There are so many elements of Rudy Giuliani’s life and crimes which are just bonkers. The fact that he farted his way through a fake “hearing” on voter fraud. The fact that his hair dye dripped down his face as he lied his way through a press conference. The fact that he went on a national tour during the pandemic, refused to wear a mask and got Covid. And on and on. Now the feds are closing in on Giuliani and I’m sure federal charges are forthcoming. Throughout all of Rudy’s terrible, fart-soaked activities in the past two years, he’s been employing a young influencer as his communications director. She’s 22 years old and MAGA. She had zero experience when he hired her, he just liked having a 20-year-old woman around him. And now she’s exiting the Giuliani train:

As Rudy Giuliani navigates an increasingly lonely and stormy world amid a federal investigation and a billion-dollar defamation suit, he’ll now have to do so without his young but trusted communications director. Christianné Allen, the 22-year-old MAGA influencer who joined Giuliani’s team in August 2019, has resigned her post at Giuliani Communications LLC effective this week, The Daily Beast has learned.

Allen says she has been replaced by Todd Shapiro, a former spokesperson for Lindsay Lohan’s family who also claims to have represented Trump properties, Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), and Hooters of Long Island and New Jersey.

Allen, who traveled extensively with Giuliani and spearheaded a number of efforts to modernize and expand the former New York mayor’s social media and digital presence, said in a statement that she felt “incredibly blessed” to have served the role, and was signing on with a new startup company whose name she wasn’t at liberty to reveal yet.

“As I reflect, I am proud of the accomplishments we achieved. One of which was building Rudy Giuliani’s Common Sense podcast from conception to one of the top political podcasts in the country in under a year,” she said. “Looking forward, I once again feel blessed to have the opportunity for continued growth and development within a rising tech startup.”

Allen boosted Trump’s 2016 campaign and went on to quickly ascend through the MAGA world. Giuliani hired her at age 20, while she was a student at Liberty University online, and she helmed his communications and social media efforts through a number of turbulent scandals. Her tenure began amid the fallout from Giuliani’s Ukraine meddling and then-President Donald Trump’s 2019 impeachment. She was later at Giuliani’s side during the Hunter Biden laptop fiasco ahead of the 2020 election, as well as during the post-election litigation and PR blitz that ultimately cost Giuliani his license to practice law in Washington, D.C., and New York.

She was an online student at Liberty? Good God. That’s practically no education at all. Anyway, I doubt Allen’s exit from Rudyville was about any kind of political disagreement. If anything, I bet she’s leaving because he doesn’t have the money to pay her. I doubt she’s even smart enough to understand the legal jeopardy she’s in, especially if she was sitting in on some of Rudy’s shady, treason-y meetings in the past two years. The Daily Beast also noted this: “In an interview on Friday, Giuliani told NBC New York that he has not ‘gone off the rails’ and is ‘not an alcoholic.’” Okay then.

    This is the first time I ever heard he had a communications person on his team. So basically she presided over the very public absolute demise of this man’s entire professional career and personal life. I bet every PR firm is salivating to hire her for such expertise.

  2. janey janey says:

    White women! THIS is what I mean when I say this ish isn’t just a white man problem. White women were integral to this racist, terrible right wing bullshit.

    On another note, if white people want to understand more about WHY white people are willing to screw themselves at the altar of white supremacy, this is a hot take.

    Racism and white supremacy will be the downfall of this country. I sound insane, but this is exactly what these foreign actors are using to influence politics, obviously. I will go to the grave on this point.

    • Chimney says:

      Agreed! The things white people will do to maintain the racist status quo, absolutely shocking smh

    • terra says:

      As a white woman in a family of many white women I agree. As a group, we are definitely a huge problem.

      My grandmother had never voted in her life until I took her with me in 2008.

      My mother goes along with whatever man is in her life – slightly less of a problem when my Libertarian (I know, I know – trust me, we had *many* words) father was alive, as he was socially liberal, but her new husband? Woo. Hello, non-vaccinated MAGAland!

      These are just the stories of two of the other (very) white women in my (very) white family. There are so many more that I despair for the future. Sad fact is, my first presidential election was the year Obama was elected and not a drop of the hope I felt then remains within me.

    • lucy2 says:

      You don’t sound insane at all. The voting stats in 2016 (and again in 2020) told that story loud and clear.

  3. lanne says:

    Oh lord, she’s “not like other girls,” is she?

    • AMA1977 says:

      Oh, yeah, she’s a Pick Me. Look at the cleavage–I mean blouse–she wore to the White House. Super professional, must be from the Treason Barbie career woman cosplay range.

      And regarding his NEW “communications director,” his tenure at Hooters of New Jersey and Long Island says EVERYTHING. I was dying.

      • The Recluse says:

        Yep. Definitely unprofessional for DC. You don’t see women there who are serious professionals dressing like this young Maga. Back in the early 90’s a friend of mine and her friend, who were from California, were in DC, she was visiting, her friend was in law school. I got to listen to them criticize DC women for not dressing with more cleavage, etc. All I could do was sigh. They didn’t get DC at all. Maybe in New York/Los Angeles cleavage and dressing ‘sexy’ is de rigeur, but DC tends to take a more pragmatic view of dressing and that includes footwear. There were articles in the NY Times and WAPO about the little cultural sniping that went back and forth between women in both cities about their footwear. Apparently DC women preferred to wear comfortable footwear DURING their commutes, as opposed to wearing high heels constantly.

      • Surly Gale says:

        I looked at the pictures and thought: her professional attire is distinctly unprofessional. She must think her boobs are her only asset…they are consistently on display in the ‘work’ pics.
        I almost skipped this post because gah, I didn’t want to go backwards. But I am SO glad I did cause …. LOL LOL LOL
        I had a boss once who hired me under false pretenses, wasn’t set up for what he planned..big ideas, poor execution. I don’t know why I fell for it, but I did. I took my next job for less than I’d earned since high school; that’s how badly I needed to get out. I’m grateful I got out relatively intact, but it took me almost 2 years to get out from under the debt I incurred because he wasn’t paying me in a timely manner, and when he did, it would be partial payments, etc. UGH!

    “The fact that he farted his way through a fake “hearing” on voter fraud.” I cackled at this.

    • PeacefulParsley says:

      This one was my fave: “She was an online student at Liberty? Good God. That’s practically no education at all.”

    • Mitch says:

      Just ‘cackled’?… I was on the floor, and had to go back to YouTube and watch it again, for old times sake…(ah Dad, I remember you well…he was a very good farter at the most inappropriate times….Now those memories make me cackle.

  5. Mame says:

    Rats leaving a sinking ships.

  6. Shanaynay says:

    Must be really hard on her realizing RD is such a prick!!! Not!!!!

  7. Ann says:

    I’m getting “don’t touch me” vibes from every picture of her with Rudy. What a gross way to live. Intentionally surrounding yourself with what I’m sure are very smelly, handsy old men. There are so many better ways to earn a living. This dumb young woman is a lost soul. It’s almost sad.

    • janey janey says:

      Thank you for proving my point, Ann. Way to defend toxic racist tropes of helpless white women. She’s there for a reason and is capitalizing on it (hint it’s racism). That trope has the blood of so many innocents on its hands, so thank you again for perpetuating white supremacy thinking.

      Uncomfortable? You might want to think about why.

      • Ann says:

        Holy F, I am for sure not trying to perpetuate white supremacy or white victimhood. I’m saying why would anyone want to spend their time with these disgusting old men. I’m definitely not at the point of being sympathetic to her or any other MAGAt psycho, just observing how gross it must be as a woman is be around them.

      • GrnieWnie says:

        @janey Janey I guess you missed the part where Ann said “intentionally surrounding yourself”, as in, by choice. As in, not helpless at all.

      • The Recluse says:

        This young woman is most likely as toxic as the piece of work who married Stephen Miller. She is pursuing power and influence as well as $$$$. We need to be on our guard for her sort as much as any male in their circle.

  8. GrnieWnie says:

    I imagine she attended online because her necklines are too low to ever attend in person. The women of Liberty University do not have breasts.

    • goofpuff says:

      At first I felt bad that I was thinking “Holy crap its inappropriate to be showing underwear in a professional conservative workplace”, but then I realized that if the men were wearing super low necklines that I’d have the same thought of “holy crap that seems inappropriate to wear a really low neckline in a professional conservative workplace”

      Then I realize that this is how all the FOX News women (and other MAGA folk) look like. She’s not bottle-blond yet, but she’ll end up there.

      • GrnieWnie says:

        it’s the height of hypocrisy. Evangelical Christian universities micromanage women’s appearances, while conservative media turns around and sexualizes them in order to appeal to “traditional values”.

      • The Recluse says:

        It’s definitely a form of cynical advertising.

      • 1pt21katie says:

        Since she’s brunette, she’d be their diversity hire.

  9. Liz version 700 says:

    Hahahaha breathe hahahaha. So much to unpack here. She is really gonna find this job is not a resume booster, and given that the FBI just asked for all of Rudy’s communications back to 1995 (well before she was born) well honey you are in some trouble. And you got that solid Liberty U background to help navigate this. Good Luck

  10. Mireille says:

    Love the pic with the gun. I imagine if we ever get invaded by hostile enemy forces, people like her will take their guns….and hide themselves in a basement, quivering in fear, hoping someone else will fight their battles. Cowards are always the ones thrusting their profiles in gun pics and then storm government buildings…because “freedumb.”

  11. florencia says:

    Er, I can’t for the life of me figure out how to pronounce her name. Anyone? lol!


    • jwoolman says:

      Haven’t heard it said, but with the accent at the end I would guess


      Kind of a combination of Christian (might be a family name) and Anne, with a twist of the “ne” being an extra accented syllable. Or the idea might simply to have a female version of the usually male name Christian. Or just a variation of Christianna, which I think is used as the female version somewhere.

  12. GgRosey says:

    Shapiro represented Hooters and a Lohan?! Bringing out the artillery I see lol

  13. Mitch says:

    Would someone be kind enough to enlighten me, as to how this is regurgitated as news worthy…please include professional (or otherwise), help that I may get for taking the time to read it, and the likes…all help is appreciated and I will be ever so grateful…
