A truly strange video featuring Donald Trump attempting to flirt with and eventually sexually harassing Rudy Giuliani dressed in drag has resurfaced on social media.
The video, which was shared by the online news outlet Meidas Touch, sees Trump in a department store when Giuliani, dressed in a long purple dress and a blonde wig, approaches him.
Trump tells Giuliani that he looks beautiful and offers to buy him a scent. Giuliani first applies the perfume to his neck which Trump smells but things go awry when Giuliani sprays another perfume onto his fake breasts causing Trump to rub his face in Giuliani's chest resulting in the president being slapped and the former mayor of New York exclaiming:
Donald, I thought you were a gentleman!
The video has been viewed more than 500,000 times on Twitter and people couldn't quite believe what they were seeing.
Oh my god. I need mind bleach! What did I just see?! https://t.co/ygy1hiNvNi
It appears that clip can be traced back to 2000 and was part of the Mayor’s Inner Circle Press Roast when Giuliani was still the mayor of New York City and Trump was nothing more than a property magnate and businessman.
If you want to put yourself through it again then you can watch the full clip below.
To be clear: it's neither funny nor clever to ridicule the drag community. Neither is it so to promote sexual harassment, regardless of the person's gender identity or outfit.
Quite how they interpreted this as being a joke is a little beyond us but this is Trump we are talking about...
