Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani on Sunday vehemently defended his assertion that President Obama sent the nation a message that it's alright to hate the police.
Giuliani last week claimed Obama's rhetoric showed animosity toward police, a suggestion that proved wholly false according to a Washington Post fact check. So appearing on CBS' Face the Nation, Giuliani argued that while Obama never explicitly voiced opposition to the police, his association with Al Sharpton implied as much.
"If you would like to have a poster boy for hating the police, it's Al Sharpton," Giuliani said.
"You put Al Sharpton next to you, you just told everyone, 'I'm against the police,'" he added. —Jon Terbush
