A Michigan representative confirmed what many who watched a now-viral video suspected — that Rudy Giuliani loudly farted during an election hearing in his state this week.
Giuliani was speaking at a meeting that examined President Donald Trump's unfounded claims of election fraud, and video captured what sounded to be a pair of audible farts as he argued with state lawmakers. As Buzzfeed News noted, Giuliani appeared to get heated during an exchange with state Rep. Darrin Camilleri after the Dearborn Democrat asked about a story claiming that he was pushing Trump for a pardon.
Giuliani objected, saying that the question was inappropriate. As he answered, the microphone picked up what appeared to be the sound of breaking wind, the report noted. A little more than a minute later, when Giuliani was being pressed about Attorney General William Barr's statement that there was no evidence of widespread election fraud, a louder toot could be heard.
"The answer that I gave you was that they didn't bother to interview a single witness," the former New York mayor said, his words capped with the sound of an audible fart.
