President Barack Obama should lower the White House flag to half-staff to honor the five service members killed by gunman in Chattanooga last week, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said Monday.

Not only that, but Obama also should have gone to a memorial service for the four slain Marines and sailor instead of "raising money for the Democratic Party and going to a play," Giuliani said Monday on "Fox & Friends."

Obama spent a father-daughter weekend in New York City with his teenagers Sasha and Malia.

"I'm sorry, I was mayor of New York when one of my police officers, God forbid, was killed, or firefighters, I didn't go to plays, and I didn't travel out of town," he said. "I went to the memorial service and I went to the funeral."

Obama isn't putting his life on the line, but service members are putting their lives on the line for him, Giuliani said. "And he owes them something."
