Former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani says President Barack Obama is to blame for the police shootings in Ferguson, Missouri, and other disturbing events because he sets the tone for the nation.

Giuliani spoke Thursday on WNYM-AM’s “The Answer” with host John Gambling. Giuliani says Obama isn’t addressing the “enormous amount of crime” being committed by blacks.

The White House declined to comment Friday on Giuliani’s remarks.

Giuliani also says Obama should say the kinds of things comedian Bill Cosby used to say before he was accused of sexual assault, which Cosby denies. Cosby often exhorted black people to focus on education and parenting.

Giuliani drew criticism last month for questioning Obama’s love of country. He said Thursday he considers Obama a good family man.
