Confronted by CBS’ Major Garrett about the Washington Post fact checker’s recent assessment that he deserved four Pinocchios for comments about President Barack Obama’s supposed anti-police “propaganda,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani doubled down Sunday morning, this time laying the blame on Reverend Al Sharpton. Rather than take his comments back, Giuliani told Garrett, who was sitting in as host on Face The Nation, that the Washington Post “missed one very important point.” The mayor suggested that Obama has had Sharpton at the White House “80-85 times” and often has the MSNBC host “sitting next to him” when he discusses police issues. “If you would like to have a poster boy for hating the police, it’s Al Sharpton,” Giuliani said. “You make Al Sharpton a close adviser, you are going to turn the police in America against you.” Asked about the disconnect between Obama’s rhetoric on police issues and these accusations, Giuliani said that “actions speak louder than words” and said that Sharpton’s relationship with the president should be considered part of that rhetoric.
