Cranky Old Rudy Giuliani Calls Beyonce's 2016 MTV Awards Performance 'Shameful'

Rudy Giuliani was not happy with Beyonce's 2016 MTV awards performance and told Fox News that it was "a shame."

On Fox News today, the panel decided to get a review from a socially aware and hip guest on Queen Bey's performance on last nights VMA's. Anyone with two eyes and at least one good ear who watched the show (or a clip) knows that she killed it, ran it over and then backed over it again. She slayed. Standing ovation, thank you for coming, all bow.

But this guest wasn't happy. In fact, he called it "shameful." WHAT? Who is this hater.

If you guessed former mayor, Hillary Clinton conspiracy theory peddler, and full time Trump boot licker Rudy Giuliani, you would be right!

Here's what was said:

EARHARDT: Her dancers were circling around her and one by one, they fell to the ground, and there were red lights underneath them. And that was supposed to symbolize cops killing black individuals.

GIULIANI: You're asking the wrong person because I had five uncles who were police officers, two cousins who were, one who died in the line of duty. I ran the largest and 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, of which maybe 4,000 or 5,000 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. So if you're going to do that, then you should symbolize why the police officers are in the neighborhoods and what are you going to go about it? To me it's two easy answers: a much better education and good job, and what the heck have you done like in Baltimore, when they all stood in Baltimore,

I was sick when I saw all the politicians sitting, standing in Baltimore after the police situation and saying, nobody’s done anything for this community in 50 years. Well, that is a heck of a thing to say, because they’ve been in charge for 50 years. And they have failed the community. I didn't fail Harlem. I turned Harlem around. I didn't fail Bedford-Stuyvesant, I turned it around. Go there now. Go walk in Harlem. Then flash back to 25 years ago and go to Harlem before I was mayor, and one was a place where crime was rampant and no national stores and now there's a thriving community in Harlem.

KILMEADE: And Beyoncé is an extremely popular and powerful performer, and when she does stuff like that, that message to the next generation is pretty indelible.

GIULIANI: It's a shame, it’s a shame.

Clearly, Giuliani and the entire panel have no idea what "artistic expression" is about. This performance was amazing. Period.
