Giuliani told Fox News host Laura Ingraham that this “would never happen in a million years when I was mayor of New York City,” reacting to video footage that showed several attacks on NYPD officers in Harlem as they were doused with water and even hit in the head with a bucket.

The Democrat mayor and 2020 presidential contender declared that the actions were “Completely unacceptable,” vowing “We won’t tolerate this kind of disrespect.”

“Actually, it wouldn’t happen if we didn’t have a progressive, retrogressive, completely lazy mayor in New York City who is absolutely destroying the quality of life in this city,” Giuliani. who served as Mayor of New York City from 1994 to 2001, said, referring to de Blasio.

“He’s a disgrace, and actually even Democrats don’t support him and are embarrassed of him,” President Donald Trump’s attorney added.

“And to let that happen, that poor police officer, his morale has been destroyed. The way you reduce crime is to have police officers with high morale,” he said, arguing for how the uniform must be respected.

“I lost almost 100 police officers in the line of duty. I lost a cousin and I have four uncles who were police officers and when I see that uniform disrespected, it should not happen in America. That is anti-American,” Giuliani told Ingraham.

He reiterated his disgust in a tweet on Tuesday, calling out de Blasio as being responsible for the “disrespect for the uniform” being displayed.

NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan slammed the “reprehensible” acts and reassured officers that the department has their back.

Many agreed and condemned the acts, some calling for Giuliani to return and save the city.
