Nobody Can Figure Out What Rudy Giuliani Is Talking About, Obama Propaganda Edition

Former Gotham Mayor Rudy Giuliani made all the headlines this Sunday when he declared on Fox & Friends Weekend that “four months of propaganda, starting with the president, that everybody should hate the police” had fomented an atmosphere of violence culminating in the ambush-style murder of two police officers in Bedstuy.

The problem: nobody can find any of Barack Obama’s anti-police propaganda.

Washington Post fact checker Michelle Ye Hee Lee awarded the claim the dreaded four Pinocchios Tuesday morning. “Perhaps one could fault the president, as some conservatives do, for failing to more forcefully rebut violent demonstrations against police,” he wrote. “But that’s an absence of rhetoric. Instead, Giuliani suggested that the president actively launched and promoted anti-police rhetoric — and that is simply Four-Pinocchio false.”

Even Joe Scarborough (“Even Joe Scarborough” should be a line of polo shirts), who has used his titular show to volubly defend police officers since the Darren Wilson grand jury decision and gone so far to throw on-air shade at his MSNBC colleagues for disagreeing with him, couldn’t figure out what Giuliani was talking about.

“What has Barack Obama said?” Scarborough asked Tuesday. It was posed rhetorically, but still nobody can come up with an answer.
