Two decades ago, many saw Giuliani as a heroic figure, especially as the mayor of New York City. He was the man who cleaned up the streets, took on the mob, and pulled the whole city together after the tragedy of 9/11.
However, Rudy Giuliani eventually attached himself to the Trump administration as Donald Trump’s personal lawyer. And as that administration landed in scandal after scandal, Rudy often found himself on camera saying and doing the most embarrassing things imaginable.
But don’t worry: we’ve captured the most embarrassing Rudy Giuliani videos so you can see today’s truth about yesterday’s hero!
Sweating hair dye
Rudy Giuliani has been a powerful man for a long, long time. And like most powerful men, he understands that appearances matter. Because of that, he regularly dyes his hair.
Of course, there is nothing wrong with dying your hair. But the whole point of hair dye is to help you simulate a more youthful appearance. In this press conference video, we see a sweating Giuliani with what many assumed was hair dye pouring down his face. (In actuality, it was probably mascara or a touch-up product used on his sideburns, according to hair stylists.)
Rudy just wanted to look young. Now, it looks like his face is melting!
Farting in court
No matter how rich and powerful you are, there is nothing quite as embarrassing as farting in public. And leave it to Rudy Giuliani to do it twice within 30 seconds, and all while on video for the world to see (and, of course, to hear).
At this Michigan hearing, we can hear Rudy audibly fart while he is speaking into his microphone. This would have been funny enough on its own, but fellow Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis giving him a “did that just happen” look each time turns this into high comedy.
Saying ‘truth isn’t truth’
Over the years, Rudy Giuliani has developed a real skill for putting his foot into his mouth in public. And sometimes, he does so in a way that gives seemingly endless ammo to his political enemies.
Perhaps the best example of that comes from this clip from Meet the Press. An exasperated Rudy blurts out to Chuck Todd that “Truth isn’t truth!” Head in hand, Rudy seems to instantly realize that he has created a thousand new headlines dragging himself and the Trump administration through the mud.
Publicly lying about his public statements
Ever hear that phrase about giving someone just enough rope to hang themselves? It turns out that was exactly what Chris Cuomo did in this infamous interview with Rudy Guiliani.
In the interview, Rudy adamantly states that he never said there was “no collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia. Cuomo makes a face because Rudy has very publicly said this before, and Jimmy Kimmel comes in with the receipts to show that Rudy is simply lying on national television.
Rudy can’t keep up with his own thoughts on Biden
Indeed, the interview with Chris Cuomo is full of some weird Rudy moments. And this includes him not being able to keep his story straight from moment to moment, especially when it comes to Joe Biden and his family.
In this clip, we see an exasperated Cuomo react to Rudy’s words by saying “So, you did ask Ukraine to look into Joe Biden.” Rudy responds “Of course I did,” causing Chris to point out, “You just said you didn’t!”

Rudy argues with himself
At this point, you might be wondering how Rudy Guiliani can keep getting away with lying and contradicting himself in public. The short answer is that most people don’t bring the receipts and shove them into his face. But that’s exactly what happened in this clip!
Confronted with Rudy’s own words from a Charlie Rose interview in 1998, the former mayor is completely unable to explain his own contradictory words between then and now. He instead sits there complaining about how “unfair” it is that someone shows him the fact that he has publicly contradicted himself!
While all these clips are embarrassing, watching Rudy screech about how it’s unfair to show him proof of what he once said makes him look like a child in a cheap suit.
The infamous ‘Borat’ clip
Just when it seemed things couldn’t get more embarrassing for Rudy, the impossible happened. He was successfully pranked by Sacha Baron Cohen in the second Borat movie.
In the clip, an actress pretending to be a conservative journalist wraps up an interview in a hotel room and invites Rudy to the bedroom for drinks. When she goes to remove his microphone, he leans back and seemingly starts unzipping his pants. Fortunately for all involved, Cohen soon comes in and keeps anything (more) untoward from happening.
Later, Rudy would insist he was simply tucking in his shirt. Feel free to watch this clip a few times and decide for yourself!
Giving a press conference at a small landscaping business
When Rudy Guiliani first attached himself to Donald Trump, we can only assume he wanted to make himself even more famous and powerful. Instead, the scandals and missteps of that administration effectively dragged Rudy down.
It all culminated with this press conference four days after the 2020 election. It seems that Trump’s campaign meant to book the upscale Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia for the press conference. But by mistake they held the press conference at a small business in Pennsylvania called Four Seasons Total Landscaping.
And here is Rudy, Trump’s personal lawyer, spouting off lies about election fraud, at a baffling location right next to a sex shop and a crematorium. If Rudy wanted to end his career with an explosive bang, we’re pretty sure this wasn’t what he meant!
In July 2021, Giuliani’s license to practice law in New York was suspended. The suspension cited his “false and misleading statements” about the election loss of former President Donald Trump. While Giuliani is no longer Trump’s personal lawyer, he can still be counted on to provide an embarrassing moment or two when he’s caught on camera.
