Sadly for Giuliani, the embarrassing moments don't appear to have ended quite yet as he has now managed to get himself embroiled in a debate over whether he farted or not during a public hearing. Yes, really.
On Wednesday, Giuliani took part in a four hour hearing in Lansing, Michigan, which was filled with wild conspiracy theories and was mostly dominated by the headline-grabbing Melissa Carone, who was Giuliani's star witness and gave such a wild testimony that even he had to tell her to calm down.
During the hearing, he is asked a question by Michigan state official Darrin Camilleri about Giuliani reportedly asking Trump for a pardon. Giuliani doesn't take kindly to this accusation and offers a rather animated response. However, when he did this a very small but clearly audible toot is heard.
Rudy Giuliani did not like @darrincamilleri’s line of questioning! https://t.co/Eitw2czinu
Ryan J. Reilly, a journalist for the HuffPost who shared the clips on Twitter tried to get in touch with Giuliani on WhatsApp to see if he was a bit flatulent in the hearing but the lawyer has reportedly blocked him on the app.
Unfortunately Rudy appears to have blocked me on WhatsApp now, so I can’t do my journalistic due diligence. https://t.co/eOweyW2cH3

We are no experts on flatulence so we cannot confirm or deny if what you think you heard is what you actually heard.
After all, incidents like this have happened before. Congressman Eric Swalwell was accused of farting on live television in November 2019 but that was later revealed to be the sound of a mug in the studio. Something similar happened to Joe Biden earlier this year but there has been no explanation given behind that particular incident.
