Rudy Giuliani is gonna Rudy Giuliani. You can’t stop him, you can only hope to contain him.
A day after the former NYC mayor went on the Sunday shows to denounce Black Lives Matter as a racist organization hellbent on dividing and destroying America, he popped up on Fox & Friends (natch) to double down on those comments. In this instance, not only did he continue to rail against social justice movement, he also portrayed himself as a superhero who spent his life saving black folks.
“I believe I saved a lot more black lives than Black Lives Matter. I don’t see what Black Lives Matter is doing for blacks other than isolating them,” Mr. 9-11 smugly asserted. “All it cares about is the police shooting of blacks. It doesn’t care about the 90 percent of blacks that have been killed by other blacks. That’s just a simple fact. That is a simple fact.”
Cardinal rule: A conservative cannot discuss police violence against blacks without bringing up black-on-black crime.
Anyway, aside from discussing his lifetime of saving blacks from themselves and complaining about BLM ignoring Chicago gun violence (another right-wing talking point), the Donald Trump supporter made sure to say “all lives matter” as often as possible. All the while, accused sexual harasser Steve Doocy and the other curvy couch sitters nodded in agreement with all the knowledge Giuliani was dropping.
Rudy Giuliani: ‘Black Lives Matter’ is inherently racist because it divides us.https://t.co/raH28Mqyfi

Joe Biden once said that Giuliani couldn’t get through a sentence without using a noun, a verb and 9-11. Now, we might want to replace 9-11 with All Lives Matter.
