Rudy Giuliani has worked hard for his reputation as a political will-o’-the-wisp and expert on bizarre appearances. The 76-year-old’s recent press conference could have been his masterpiece, a US comedian jokes.
A bizarre detail from a press conference with Rudy Giuliani is a topic of conversation on the Internet: While the longtime personal lawyer of US President Donald Trump in the spotlight of the cameras answered questions from journalists and delivered more and more attacks against the outcome of the lost presidential election, suddenly dark drips Paint down his temples.
The 76-year-old repeatedly dabbed the sweat from his face, but the rivulets of color continued to run down his cheeks for minutes. The US media and people on the net speculated about hair dye after the appearance on Thursday (local time) in Washington.
Comedian Jimmy Fallon jokes about Giuliani’s appearance
“Oil and evil are seeping out of Giuliani,” tweeted Meena Harris, niece of Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris. “Does Trump really believe that Rudolph Giuliani will help him?” Asked the Democratic MP in the House of Representatives, Hakeem Jeffries, on Twitter. “In the history of crazy Rudy press conferences, this could be his masterpiece,” joked comedian Jimmy Fallon.
It is not the first time that a press conference with the Trump confidante has caused ridicule. Almost two weeks ago, a choice of location had caused confusion. Giuliani stepped in front of the journalists in the parking lot of a landscaping company, located between a crematorium and a sex shop in the middle of the Philadelphia industrial area.
The name of the nursery – “Four Seasons” – had also caused laughter, many had initially assumed the luxury hotel of the same name. Probably that was also the intended location for the press conference.
