Well, you see, Rudy, those Democratic mayors have also had four decades of Republican austerity budgets... oh, never mind. He doesn't care, he knows what he's saying:

On Fox & Friends Wednesday morning, former Gotham Mayor Rudy Giuliani explained how he would have kept Monday’s night riot in Baltimore from happening, and then wondered where the city’s elected officials got off complaining about the city’s policies when their party has been running the place for four decades.

“It was amazing to listen to the elected politicians complain about the unfair conditions in Baltimore when it’s been a Democratic city for 40 years,” Giuliani said. “With one Democratic mayor after another.”

“But let’s face it, they’re right,” Giuliani said. “That neighborhood has not been revived the way Harlem has been revived, the way Brooklyn, the way neighborhoods in New York City have been revived — which I, by the way, started.”
