After the embarrassing ‘melting man’ episode last month, more awkwardness and hilarity was in store as US President’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani was caught on camera, farting during a voter fraud hearing in Michigan.

Responding to Rep. Darrin Camilleri’s claim that federal prosecutors had found no evidence of election fraud, Giuliani said, ‘I will ask that he be disciplined for that,’ when the first fart noise was heard. A minute later, he said, “The answer that I gave you was that they didn’t bother to interview a single witness.”
Exactly at that moment, a second and loud fart sound could be heard, prompting a ‘what just happened’ reaction from the woman sitting next to him. Turns out the woman is another attorney named Jenna Ellis who has been assisting Giuliani in the legal battle. While Ellis struggled to hold back her laughter and regain composure, all that the internet could talk about was the fart.
HuffPost reporter Ryan Reilly shared the video on Twitter on Wednesday night and it has since gone viral on social media. Many also noticed the side-eye glance Ellis gave while hearing the fart noise.
One person wrote ‘odor in the court!’ Check out the video and reactions here:
This is not Giuliani’s first brush with the public embarrassment this year.
During a press conference in November, Giuliani’s hair dye began streaming down his cheeks, inspiring a wave of memes worldwide. The amusing incident happened on November 19 when the legal team of Trump’s campaign held a press conference to claim voter fraud in 2020 US Elections, but all people could focus was on the dark streaks of his hair dye dripping across his face due to profuse sweating.
