It was the toot heard 'round the world. Earlier this week, Borat 2 star Rudy Giuliani proved once again that he was full of hot air, allegedly farting not once but twice during a four-hour hearing in front of the Michigan House Oversight Committee, where he continued to tout baseless allegations that widespread voter fraud led to Donald Trump's loss in the presidential election. I guess hair dye and whopping lies aren't the only questionable things the former New York City Mayor has been emitting during his voter fraud tour.
About four hours and 10 minutes into the hearing (which you can watch here if you have a lot of time to kill), Michigan state representative Darrin Camilleri asked Giuliani why the committee should believe his bogus allegations over local clerks, state and federal judges, as well as Attorney General William Barr, the latest official to reiterate that there has been no evidence of large-scale voter fraud. "Why should we sit here in this show that you are partaking in and taking around this country if no one has found any evidence whatsoever of any of your wrongdoing, and why should we not believe the reported attempts of you to try to seek a pardon from the President?" he asked.
Giuliani, who was clearly upset with the answer, seemed to take literal and metaphorical beef with the state representative's inquiry. "I will ask that he be disciplined for that," the former Mayor said, appearing to release an audible fart, seemingly to the horror of his co-counsel Jenna Ellis.
"First of all, what he says is not true. Second, that is a defamation of my professional character," he quipped, further proving the old adage of "whoever denied it, supplied it," likely defaming everyone within a six-foot radius.
Yet it didn't stop there. In an apparent battle with his lunch, which may have consisted of beans, beans, and more beans, Giuliani seemed to rip ass again a few moments later. "The answer that I gave you was that they didn't bother to interview a single witness," the Borat Subsequent Moviefilm star said, appearing to emit an even louder air biscuit.
While we can't prove for certain the erm, large emissions came from Giuliani's derriere, Rep. Camilleri took to Twitter with a damning testimony. "I can tell you that making a cameo on @jimmykimmel for questioning Rudy Giuliani during an evidence-free hearing and startling him so much that he farted definitely wasnât on my 2020 bingo card," he wrote.
So, Mr. Giuliani, if you're reading this, maybe pop a few Tums in your briefcase, lest you bring odor to the court. After all, this is RudyWatch, not RudySmell.
