“The Philadelphia Police Department was not allowed to come on to the floor of the convention. Hillary Clinton didn’t want uniforms shown at the convention, possibly because it might offend certain people because this is an anti-cop convention. We know it’s an anti-cop convention. I have been told that by at least a dozen Philadelphia police officers. Not only that, the last two nights, myself and my security detail and some of my friends searched all around the convention floor and we couldn’t find a single Philadelphia police officer uniform and this morning, as I walked into FOX, I asked a police officer, how did it feel to be excluded from the convention floor? He said it felt pretty lousy and we’re pretty angry at the Commissioner.”READ MORE: Fourth Stimulus Check: Is Another Relief Payment Coming Soon?
