Trump and Giuliani produced a skit that is the stuff of nightmares
Since his inauguration in 2017, President Trump has been subject to endless accusations over alleged Russian interference in the election that won him the White House. Trump, of course, denies any such wrongdoing, or collusion between the Kremlin and his presidential campaign, and has assembled a team of highly-esteemed attorneys to clear his name.
Earlier this week, Trump’s legal team announced the appointment of Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, a longtime friend and ally of Trump.
Aside from being pretty big political news, and giving the talking heads in the US media endless fodder, Giuliani’s appointment also brought back a dark, deep-seated memory; something that should’ve stayed in the past and been incinerated in the memory hole.
That memory, of course, was Trump sleazing on Giuliani in drag.
The video is below, but FAIR WARNING: You will never be able to un-watch this content.
The bizarre, mind-ruining video was apparently produced as part of then-mayor Giuliani’s ‘Inner Circle Press Roast’ in 2000, towards the end of his reign as Mayor, which lasted from 1994 to 2001.
For those who couldn’t bring themselves to watch it, the clip features Giuliani trying on different scents in the perfume section of a department store. The now-President pays him compliments on the scent and his appearance, before eventually going in for a motorboat, all the space of about 30 seconds.
This doesn’t go down well, with Giuliani slapping him and calling him a “dirty boy”, before walking off. Trump then looks at the camera, shrugs his shoulders, and says “you can’t say I didn’t try!”, which has all kinds of horrible implications in the context of today.
Of course, Trump has been a public figure for decades prior to him running for office, and there is no shortage of fodder out there that will make him look less than presidential. However, this clip really took it to the next level.
