When asked by The Daily Caller Monday night if Holt treated Donald Trump fairly, the former mayor of New York said he acted “extremely unfairly.”

“Particular in his interference with regard to the unconstitutionality of a case called Terry v. Ohio,” Giuliani told this reporter. “I forgive Hillary Clinton for not understanding that stop-and-frisk was not held unconstitutional — only unconstitutional as applied by Michael Bloomberg and Ray Kelly.”

“I happen to disagree with that,” he said. “I was out of office 12 years when it was held unconstitutional. It was never held unconstitutional when I was mayor.”

“Stop-and-frisk is being done tonight all over America,” Giuliani continued.

“It is perfectly constitutional. It is still good law. It is still constitutional law. And Lester Holt should be ashamed of himself for interfering. He doesn’t know the law. I know she [Clinton] doesn’t know the law because she failed the bar exam, but he should stop pretending he’s a lawyer.”

Below is the exchange from the debate between Holt and Trump about stop-and-frisk:

HOLT: “‘Stop and frisk‘ was ruled unconstitutional in New York because it largely singled out black and Hispanic young men.”

TRUMP: “No, you’re wrong. It went before a judge who was a very against-police judge. It was taken away from her, and our mayor — our new mayor — refused to go forward with the case. They would have won on appeal. If you look at it, throughout the country, there are many places where it’s —”

HOLT: “The argument is that it’s a form of racial profiling.”

TRUMP: “No, the argument is that we have to take the guns away from these people that have them and that are bad people that shouldn’t have ’em.”
