Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani Disses Beyonce’s 2016 VMAs Performance
Former mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani falls in the other 1 percent.
The politician — who was mayor during the 9/11 tragedy — appeared on Fox & Friends today, August 29, just to bash Bey’s artistic excellence.

"Her dancers were circling around her and one by one, they fell to the ground, and there were red lights underneath them," co-host Ainsley Earhardt explained.
“And that was supposed to symbolize cops killing black individuals.”
Rudy, 72, wasn’t having it.
"You're asking the wrong person," the failed presidential candidate said. "I saved more black lives than any of those people you saw on stage.”
The politician, who hasn’t been in office for 15 years, then detailed his accomplishments, like reportedly reducing homicide by 75 percent.
“Maybe four or five thousand African-American young people... are alive today because of the policies I put in effect,” he bragged.
It’s unclear how Beyoncé’s performance called into question the ex-mayor’s decades-old success stories. But that didn’t stop Rudy from calling Bey’s cultural relevance a “shame.”
Yes, the Beyhive has already started dragging Rudy up and down Twitter in response.
