Just weeks after coming under fire for saying he didn’t think President Barack Obama loved America, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani is making headlines again for remarks he made Thursday on a Big Apple radio talk show.
Offering advice on how Obama could redeem his legacy, tarnished in part by the anti-police “tone” he has set — resulting in police being shot, according to Giuliani, the president should take a page from comedian Bill Cosby’s book and censure black men “about the large incidence of crime” they commit, the Washington Post reports.
“If an African-American president stood up and said — I hate to mention it because of what happened afterwards — the kind of stuff that Bill Cosby used to say, the first guy to applaud him would be me,” Giuliani told AM 970 host John Gambling. “If he does that, I’m telling you, whatever he does right or wrong he gets a place in history.”
Cosby was once considered entertainment royalty, but has been accused by dozens of women of drugging and sexually assaulting them over his decades-long career.
“It is the obligation of the President to explain . . . that our police are the best in the world,” Giuliani continued, The New York Daily News reports.
