Rudy Giuliani, a bald muskrat of a man, took no pleasure in Beyoncé’s performance at last night’s VMAs. He was especially taken aback by her explicit references to police brutality and Black Lives Matter. Why, you ask? Because Rudy Motherfucking Giuliani knows plenty about saving black lives.
As E! News reports, the former New York City mayor appeared on Fox & Friends, where cohost Ainsley Earhardt showed him a clip of Bey’s performance. She specifically asked for his thoughts on the first segment, where dancers, bathed in red light, fell to the ground at the sound of gun shots.
“That was supposed to symbolize cops killing black individuals,” Earhardt explained.
Giuliani was unmoved. “You’re asking the wrong person,” he chattered. “Because I have five uncles who were police, two cousins who were, one who died in the line of duty.”
Having already contorted the message behind the performance, Giuliani proceeded with increasing bravado. Via E! News.
“ I ran the largest and the best police department in the world, the New York City Police Department, and I saved more black lives than any of those people you saw on stage by reducing crime and particularly homicide by 75 percent...of which, maybe four or five thousand were African American young people who are alive today because of the policies I put in effect that weren’t in effect for 35 years.”
He continued to detail his mayoral triumphs with smug fervor, a delusional White Savior cozily ensconced in his own farts. His response—essentially a non-sequitur—bore no relation to the issue of racist cops murdering innocent black people. It did, however, enable Giuliani to proclaim himself more significant to the black community than the most talented, innovative, and inspiring black singer of our generation.
Oh, and as for Beyoncé? Giuliani referred to her influence on today’s youth as “a shame.”
