Rudy Giuliani was farting through his last testimony and the whole room heard it

Unlike him, his digestive system doesn't seem to agree with repeatedly peddling lies and baseless claims of election fraud.

The post-election days have really not been going well for the president's lawyer Rudy Giuliani. The 76-year-old, who kicked off election week with a special appearance in the Borat movie doing some questionable things, is now once again making headlines for the wrong reasons following a chaotic and conspiracy-filled hearing on Wednesday night. According to BuzzFeed News, the former New York City mayor was heard farting at least two times while fighting tooth and nail to convince lawmakers to delegitimize Joe Biden's presidential win. Unlike him, his digestive system doesn't seem to agree with repeatedly peddling lies and baseless claims of election fraud.




The first of the now-viral toots were heard while he hit back with forced indignation to a question from Michigan state Rep. Darrin Camilleri about the New York Times story that the attorney is lobbying President Donald Trump for a preemptive pardon. Objecting vehemently to what he said was a defamatory question, Giuliani declared: "I will ask that he be disciplined for that! *Toot*" Okay, so farting is not a crime. Although farting while imploring Michigan lawmakers to side with conspiracy theories and lies isn't ideal, the internet probably would've let it pass as a weird audio mishap had it not been for a second unmistakable toot sound that followed roughly 90 seconds later.




As Camilleri pressed he-who-needs-to-use-better-quality-hair-dye to respond to Attorney General Bill Barr's statement that federal prosecutors found no evidence of election fraud that would overturn President-elect Joe Biden's victory, a second more audible whoosh was picked up by the microphone. "The answer that I gave you was that they didn't bother to interview a single witness," Giuliani said while letting one rip. To seal the deal, Jenna Ellis — a member of Giuliani's team who has been assisting him in convincing the courts that Biden fraudulently won the election — inadvertently confirmed the toot with a side-eye glance.




And if you still have any concerns regarding the authenticity of the perfectly timed farts, the fact-checking website Snopes has already published an article laying out the facts. The verdict: The audio, aka the fart sounds, is real. However, it notes: "While the audio is real, we can't definitively say what caused this noise. It may have been a fart. It may have been the noise of an off-camera chair scraping against the ground or a water glass being moved. It may have been gas that was passed by someone other than Giuliani. In order to avoid falling afoul of the age-old axiom, 'Whoever deduced it produced it,' all we'll say is that the audio is authentic."




The internet, however, did not need much convincing as the moment went viral after it was clipped and shared by HuffPost reporter Ryan Reilly on Twitter Wednesday night. It has since been viewed more than 3.1 million times. "Hilarious! Watch the second he farts and then Jenna's eyes shift and there’s a shift in her facial features like “oh no, not again” and then she turns her nose from the stench so she doesn’t gag," tweeted Paul Nadeau. "God is just raining down embarrassment on this man and he still won’t stop lying," pointed out Twitter user Carla Scott.




"JENNA'S FACE. Rudy farting so loudly that the mic picked it up and Jenna could barely hold back a laugh is peak 2020, man. Girl, aren't you sad you refused to wear a mask?" asked Holly Figueroa O'Reilly. "I will ask that Rudy be disciplined for that breach of fart protocol. There was clearly no thumb to the forehead nor did anyone declare that 'who smelt it dealt it.' This shall not stand," proclaimed Mark Horstmeier. Yup, that's the president's lawyer, folks. January 20th cannot come soon enough.
