Please say a little prayer for Rudy Giuliani's eyeballs, because apparently he's blind to the brilliance that is Beyoncé. While the rest of the world was frantically running to get in formation, Giuliani was busy interpreting Bey's Super Bowl 50 performance as an "attack" on the police. Um, is "police" code for haters? Because if so, yes, she twirled on them.
"I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers, the people who protect her and protect us and keep us alive," he said during an appearance on Fox & Friends. "What we should be doing in the African American community, and all communities, is build up respect for police officers and focus on the fact that when something does go wrong, OK, we'll work on that. But the vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe."
Interesting that Giuliani thinks he's an authority on what the black community should and shouldn't be doing, but that aside, his comments are pretty off-base. The Black Lives Matter movement is so much more than the broad brush strokes he's painting it with, and Beyoncé's "Formation" performance—while politically charged—wasn't an "attack" on anything other than poor Bruno Mars, bless him.
"I mean this is a political position, she's probably going to take advantage of it," he continued, apparently having even more musings to impart. "You're talking to middle America when you have the Super Bowl, so if you can have entertainment, let's have, you know, decent wholesome entertainment and not use it as a platform to attack the people who, you know, put their lives at risk to save us."
Look, buddy, there's only one person using their platform for political posturing here, and his name rhymes with Judy Booliani. (Sorry not sorry.)
