Former Mayor of NY Rudy Giuliani just landed some epic truth bombs on all of America. He found the real solution to saving lives. So will #BlackLivesMatter listen up or tune him out?
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giulani called Beyonce’s 15-minute-long MTV Video Music Awards performance a ‘shame’ for its imagery of cops killing black people.
‘I ran the largest and best police department in the world, the New York City Police Department,’ Giuliani noted this morning on Fox & Friends. ‘And I saved more black lives than any of those people you saw on stage by reducing crime and particularly homicide by 75 percent.’
But last night’s performance was even more pronounced as ‘Fox & Friends’ host Ainsley Earhardt explained.
She told Giuliani that Beyonce’s ‘dancers were circling around her and one by one, they feel to the ground, and there were red lights underneath them.’
‘And that was supposed to symbolize cops killing black individuals,’ Earhardt added.
Beyonce also arrived at the annual awards show with the mothers of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Mike Brown and Oscar Grant – all young black men whose lives were snuffed out by police officers – in tow, in case her message of ‘Black Lives Matter’ was lost on anyone.
Giuliani, who has become one of Donald Trump’s main surrogates in recent weeks, was not impressed.
‘You’re asking the wrong person because I had five uncles who were police officers, two cousins who were, one who died in the line of duty,’ Giuliani began.
Giuliani figured the crime reduction of 75 percent accounted for ‘maybe 4,000 or 5,000’ African-American young people ‘who are still alive today because of the policies I put in effect that weren’t in effect for 35 years.’
‘So, if you’re going to do that, then you also should also symbolize why the police officers are in those neighborhoods and what are you going to do about that and what are you doing about it?’ Giuliani said.
‘Are you, to me it’s two easy answers: a much better education and a good job and what the heck have you done like in Baltimore, when they all stood in Baltimore I was sick when I saw all the politicians standing in Baltimore after the police situation and saying “nobody’s done anything for this community in 50 years” well that is a heck of a thing to say because they’ve been in charge for 50 years and they have failed the community,’ Giuliani continued.
