Happy Friday friends! It’s that time of the week where what we all really deserve to read right now is some lighthearted content that will make us feel good. But nay! That is not what you will be receiving in this article. Today I shall be taking you back to the time Donald Trump motorboated Rudy Giuliani (or Rudia) in full drag. You read that right.
Now, let me take you back to the year 2000. The PS2 had just come out, the Sydney Summer Olympics were raging on, and the world had just been introduced to Jim Carrey as the Grinch in How The Grinch Stole Christmas. It was definitely a different time, that’s for sure.
But let’s hop on over to The Mayor’s Inner Circle Press Roast, a comedy roast for the then-mayor of New York, Rudolph Giuliani, who you may know as Trump’s personal lawyer throughout his tenure as president, or as the guy who sweats black hair dye, or as the guy who gave a speech at Four Seasons Total Landscaping.
During the roast, this skit played, during which Trump runs into Rudia while shopping, and proceeds to flirt with her in an extremely awkward fashion. My brain truly cannot comprehend that both of these people were only recently in incredibly powerful positions in the American political system.
One of the worst parts of the entire thing is when Trump gets right up to Giuliani’s neck to smell his perfume, moans and then says “I like that.” Truthfully this entire clip has turned me straight as an arrow. However, I haven’t even mentioned the motorboating yet.
At one point, the camera zooms into Giuliani’s fake boobs, uncomfortably so, and then you see Trump just grab him out of nowhere and motorboat him. It feels incredibly gross, and even on a comedic level, it is so hard to see what they were trying to go for with this skit.
Please do watch for yourself.
The sight of Giuliani in full drag is something I never thought I’d have to reckon with, but alas, this clip has existed for 21 years now, and will probably continue to exist forever.
If you need me I’m gonna go watch some RuPaul’s Drag Race and cleanse my eyes of this terrible vid.
