Former New York Gov. George Pataki pegged the shootings of two Brooklyn police officers today on the “divisive, anti-cop rhetoric” of Attorney General Eric Holder and New York City mayor Bill DiBlasio.
Pataki, a Republican who is considering a run for president, tweeted:
Sickened by these barbaric acts, which sadly are a predictable outcome of divisive anti-cop rhetoric of #ericholder & #mayordeblasio. #NYPD.
By blaming Holder, Pataki would appear to be stopping just short of pointing the finger at President Obama.
