Rudy Giuliani Wishes Obama Would Act More Like 'Alleged Rapist,' Bill Cosby
March 14, 2015

The former Mayor of NYC, Rudy Giuliani has made a fool of himself yet again. You can't deny that he's on a roll, although it's not the type of roll one would be proud of. He joined a right wing talk show and voiced much of the same complaints at President Obama that's he's been repeating ad nauseum, but he outdid himself by wishing the president would act more like Bill Cosby, a man who has been vilified of late under a barrage of sexual allegations and lawsuits.

Rudy: And if an African American president stood up and said — I hate to mention it because of what happened afterwards — the kinds of stuff that Bill Cosby used to say, the kinds of stuff that Imam Pasha says at the Malcolm X mosque: this is our responsibility.

Yes, he really went there.

The former mayor, speaking on AM970 radio Thursday morning, was asked what he thought about a number of disturbing issues in the news

Host John Gambling sought Giuliani’s take on the vicious McDonald’s fight; the recent police shootings in Ferguson, Mo., and NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton getting booed Thursday at a City Council hearing by protesters.
Giuliani said, “It all starts at the top. It’s the tone that’s set by the President.”

The former mayor said he just returned from a trip overseas, and the United States is constantly derided there as a “racist state.”

“It is the obligation of the President to explain . . . that our police are the best in the world,” said Giuliani.

Obama is also not addressing the “enormous amount of crime” that’s being committed by African-Americans, Giuliani said.

“I hate to mention it because of what happened afterwards, but (he should be saying) the kinds of stuff Bill Cosby used to say,” said Giuliani.

Cosby, before his public image was tarnished by a slew of sex assault allegations, had spoken frequently and often bluntly about how African-Americans needed to focus more on education, be better parents and avoid lives of crime.

Here's the full audio of the segment:

Giuliani also blames the entire unrest in the Middle East on President Obama as well as a host of many other horrors he's unleashed.
