Rudy Giuliani tested positive for coronavirus, likely exposed hundreds of people

Giuliani Press Conference at RNC Headquarters

Rudy Giuliani has been Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and the Trump campaign’s chief attorney. Considering everything is done and dusted, Giuliani’s last act should have been the hilarious press conference at Four Seasons Total Landscaping on November 7th (today is the one month anniversary of that inglorious moment). But in the past month, Giuliani has toured the country, inciting morons to “protest” a fair election, behaving like a complete clown in court, and being a sweaty, gross, racist, farty mess around the country. He has not worn a mask whatsoever. And now, the inevitable:

Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and President Trump’s personal and campaign lawyer, has tested positive for the coronavirus, Mr. Trump announced on Twitter on Sunday.

Mr. Giuliani has been admitted to Georgetown University Medical Center, according to a person who was aware of his condition but not authorized to speak publicly. Mr. Giuliani, at age 76, is in the high-risk category for the virus. Later Sunday, he wrote on Twitter: “Thank you to all my friends and followers for all the prayers and kind wishes. I’m getting great care and feeling good. Recovering quickly and keeping up with everything.”

His son, Andrew H. Giuliani, a White House adviser, said on Nov. 20 he had tested positive for the virus. He had appeared at a news conference with his father the day before.

Mr. Giuliani has been acting as the lead lawyer for Mr. Trump’s efforts to overthrow the results of the election. He has repeatedly claimed he has evidence of widespread fraud, but he has declined to submit that evidence in legal cases he has filed.

“@RudyGiuliani, by far the greatest mayor in the history of NYC, and who has been working tirelessly exposing the most corrupt election (by far!) in the history of the USA, has tested positive for the China Virus. Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter. It was unclear why Mr. Trump was the one announcing it.

Mr. Giuliani recently traveled to three battleground states that Mr. Biden won to make his case. On Thursday he attended a hearing at the Georgia Capitol, where he didn’t wear a mask. He also went maskless on Wednesday at a legislative session in Michigan, where he lobbied Republicans to overturn the results of the election there and appoint a slate of electors for Trump.

“Mayor Giuliani tested negative twice immediately preceding his trip to Arizona, Michigan, and Georgia,” the Trump campaign said. “The Mayor did not experience any symptoms or test positive for COVID-19 until more than 48 hours after his return.”

However, a person in contact with the former mayor said he began feeling ill late this past week.

Again, he spent all of last week wandering around the country, angry-farting and spewing lies without a mask. Arizona lawmakers have already announced that they’re shutting down the legislature because Giuliani was there when he was likely shedding the virus. One doctor says that in Atlanta alone, Giuliani’s trip last week likely exposed “hundreds.”

      Literally a walking disease. A cesspool. Human garbage. They all are. And I can’t believe that people are not making more of the fact that his star witness in Michigan made pornograhic tapes of herself and her boyfriend and then sent them to the boyfriend’s ex. For two years. And she served a probationary sentence for this, so it’s not like it’s a rumor. Where are Trump’s evangelicals now, bathing in the sewer with him?

  2. lola says:

    Satan, come and get him.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Hell doesn’t want him or Trump.

    • Tanguerita says:

      The saddest thing is that he’ll get the same top-notch therapy that Trump had and will be all right in no time. Meanwhile, hundreds of people he might have infected in the past ten days…
      Still, I hope that he dies, or, at least, suffers greatly and at length.

      • AnnaKist says:

        I still don’t believe trump had it. But anyway, stay calm, Rudy. It’s nothing to worry about. It’s just like having a cold. The prez said so.

      • Bettyrose says:

        I don’t believe Trump had it either. Even with the best of care, an elderly sickly dude like him making a full recovery in three days?

      • Emm says:

        I am so down with this @annakist and @bettyrose. See my comment below.

      • BnLurkN4eva says:

        I am saying it loud and clear, Trump never had the virus. It was all staged to disrupt the events at the time – debates he was clearly losing. We will find out sooner or later because these losers can’t keep secrets for very long.

  3. Size Does Matter says:

    Now Trump can blame China for taking down his entire legal team. Part of a vast conspiracy to undermine his “win.”

  4. Darla says:

    I am very angry that FOT (Friends of Trump) get special access to life saving meds, the antibody treatment that has saved Trump, Carson, and 400 lb Chris Christie. Giuliani is definitely getting them. Remember Carson tweeted that Trump “gave the okay” for him to get these life saving meds.

    Meanwhile, thousands of Americans are sentenced to choke to death alone every day. This is outrageous. And i’m really curious; where is the outrage?

    I know if Hillary were President and only her buddies were getting life saving meds while thousands of Americans choked to death, this country would burn to the ground. Same if it were Obama.

    And yet, crickets. It’s no problem for these evil people to get to live, while Americans are sentenced to terrifying deaths from the very same illness daily. What’s going on? Where’s the outrage? The media doesn’t even talk about it!! You know why I think that is? I think they can get them too if needed. And they don’t want to stir up the heathens, who are dying, every day. Sentenced to death while the rich and powerful get to live.

    • Esmom says:

      The cognitive dissonance between them denying and minimizing the virus but then getting access to the best treatments when they do get sick — and then going right back to minimizing it — has been astonishing. It is utterly insane, a reflection of how badly broken our country is with one half refusing to see OBJECTIVE REALITY on a number of fronts. Once again I’m despairing at how we will ever get past this.

      And yes real people are suffering and stressing over this. The Republicans literally don’t care, none of this means anything to them. Especially when they know they can get the best treatment, they don’t have to worry about paying their bills or wondering where their next meal is coming from or how they will balance childcare with work and stay safe and healthy.

      And the two monsters in GA, Loeffler and Perdue, who have absolutely nothing to contribute to the greater good and no platform except to demonize Democrats, are likely to be elected. I can’t.

    • FHMom says:

      I’m convinced that all these evil people have made a deal with the devil. I’m still angry Trump survived Covid. If only…

      • Emm says:

        I was literally just saying this to my husband last night. One of THEE most disappointing things to come out of 2020 is that he got it and survived and seems to have no lingering at all. Everything is so backwards and that was like a kick to the gut when you’re already on the ground half dead from the pummeling the previous 8 months gave you.

      • Alarmjaguar says:

        What are the odds that he’s still on the steroid treatment? Remember, before he had Covid he was all shaky (two hands for the glass of water, ramp walking issues, etc) Much less of that now (at least it isn’t being reported). Sure wish American citizens had information about this….

    • Lady2Lazy says:

      @ Darla, I hate to say it but you are absolutely right. They are still mad at Obama, after 8+ years. God I miss the Obamas. ☹️

    • Betsy says:

      They only get them until January 20. And then all their recklessness becomes theirs alone to deal with.

      And nobody so far can prevent them from developing long haul covid, hair loss, erectile dysfunction, cognitive decline, etc…

    • Coco says:

      There could be a medical professional, infected due to constant exposure and lack of PPE, dying in the same hospital right now and Giuliani will get Regeneron and that person won’t.

    • Doodle says:

      The rich always get better healthcare in this country while the poor always suffer. It’s ridiculous

      • Yup, Me says:

        The rich get the best AND worst healthcare because doctors gove them whatever their stupid asses want and will/can pay for. So they get the new experimental treatment that is saving lives but they also get letters full of lies that say they are completely healthy when they are clearly declining narcissistic sociopaths who roam the world looking like rotting citrus fruits.

    • Alexis says:

      And you know who apparently did NOT get access?? Herman Cain. Not a coincidence IMO.

  5. FHMom says:

    Giuliani is giving me a much needed laugh these days. From the dripping hair dye to catching Covid. I had never heard the farting story, and I’m laughing again.I can’t wait to show my kids the video. Thanks, Rudy.

  6. Emily says:

    At this point everyone knows they should have a mask on. If someone he’s been in contact with (who wore their mask) gets sick and dies, Rudy should be charged with negligence. It is negligent not to wear a mask.

    • Lady2Lazy says:

      @ Emily, absolutely!!! He is knowingly infections others, and I find it hard to believe that he didn’t know he was sick, as he lies for a living.
      On a side note, at the beginning of the second video you can hear Guiligerm let several bubble farts rip in the beginning so it wasn’t just 2. The man is so full of sh#t, it’s coming out like a train…wreck, like he is! Plus this will play onto infamy, the former NY governor ripping it away in his pants in a court of law, a summation of his legal argument no less.

  7. JanetDR says:

    It seems criminal that he has potentially infected so many others. So depressingly stupid and unnecessary! What’s the point of us trying so hard to be careful, not seeing our families, etc. when this idiot is allowed to travel all over?! Ugh.

  8. grabbyhands says:

    Although I can easily believe that he has it, I could also see this as them finding a convenient out for Giuliani since all he’s doing his having his ass handed to him every day and making them all look like even bigger fools than they already do.

    Like, he’s screwing up, but he’s also one of the most loyal water carriers and more importantly, regular press is still paying attention to his words. I think not only does 45 think he still has usefulness, but also that he is one person they don’t want to risk alienating. I’m certain Grandpa Munster has lots of stories to tell.

    Him being diagnosed with COVID is a good way to get him out of the public crosshairs and stoke sympathy at the same time. It will be interesting to see if/when people in his circle starting getting it too considering how irresponsible he is.

  9. Harla says:

    “Angry farting “. I’m dying here!!! 😂

  10. Miranda says:

    If conservatives think it’s OK for Jesus-y companies like Hobby Lobby to not ensure that female employees have access to comprehensive healthcare, or for pharmacists to refuse to fill prescriptions for birth control or Plan B, then surely it’s only fair that doctors and nurses should be able to refuse to treat the irresponsible assholes in this administration who keep coming down with COVID after they neglect and ACTIVELY MOCK basic prevention measures. There are people who did everything right and still got sick who deserve those beds.

    (I’m aware this would be unethical, but f**k it, it’s not like people who work for Trump have the remotest concept of what the word “ethics” even means.)

    • Betsy says:

      I, too, wish that doctors and nurses could do that. If we’re having to ration care because of the criminal negligence by the GOP, then those responsible for the rationing should suffer it, too.

    • Lady Keller says:

      If only it were possible. I wish we could make people sign waivers. You refuse to wear a mask, you engage in unnecessary travel, attend mass gatherings? Sorry you brought this on yourself. Don’t believe in science then dont turn to science to save yourself.

      My parents have underlying health issues and I’m sure if it comes down to a shortage of beds they will be bottom of the list. Meanwhile a-holes who hang out in bars and go maskless to mass gatherings will have access to all the life saving medical interventions.

  11. Rapunzel says:

    Some MAGAts are conspiracy theorizing that the virus is being “weaponized” against Republicans. You know, because it’s “suspicious” that only Republicans who aren’t following any health guidelines are getting it.

    Can we just ship these dumb dumbs to Mars?

    • Emm says:

      I read that a few months ago. Some maga was beside herself wondering why no one was reporting on or suspicious about why so many more republicans are getting it then democrats. I mean, you think to yourself that these people cannot honestly be so thick right? That they are just the Tucker carlsons and Sean Hannitys that throw whatever they can at the wall to try to incite as much outrage as possible. But then you realize they don’t think masks make a difference so of course people who don’t wear masks and people who do should be getting it at the same rate right? Everything feels so backwards. I’m not sure I will ever feel the same about the world again after this.

    • Insomniac says:

      God, I heard some of that nonsense too. It’s almost like staying home if you can, but wearing masks and staying distanced if you have to be out–all the things Republicans are calling Democrats “sheep” for doing–are actually *effective* or something. Nah, that can’t be it; it must be a Democratic plot.

      And I too really wish that all the Dudley Dursleys and Veruca Salts who WON’T wear a mask, WON’T stay home, and WON’T get the vaccine would have to sign a waiver pledging that they WON’T go to the emergency room or seek any special treatment if they get a severe case of COVID-19.

  12. Other Renee says:

    It amazes me how Rudy continues to make such an … ASS out of himself. From the Four Seasons debacle to the hair dye to his unmasked rantings and farting to lying on a hotel bed with his hand down his pants diddling himself in the Borat movie etc. If someone had told me that this is how the once-powerful mayor of NYC would end up, I wouldn’t have believed it. It will all make one heck of a cautionary tale movie someday. The last act just needs to wheeze out its last breaths.

  13. ME says:

    It was reported his son had Covid-19 two weeks ago. Wonder if he caught it from him or from one of the many maskless people he’s been around the past week or so. There is video of him literally hugging people (all maskless) !!! WTF is wrong with people? The stupidity, the selfishness, the ignorance !!! Fuck him, all these assholes !!!

  14. ClaireB says:

    I’m going to have to laugh about this, because otherwise I’m going to cry. How have we come to this? (I know how we have, but so many people have made so many cruel and wrong choices over the years that it’s incredible to me.)

  15. Kelly Sunshine says:

    I had Covid at the end of August. It was a miserable 10 days for me, and one of my major symptoms was an upset tummy for a good 7-10 days. Maybe Guiliani’s farts was the start of his “Covid tummy” troubles.

    The fact that he was around so many people absolutely horrifies me. Did he know he had been exposed to someone with Covid? Why did he not isolate (or in the very least, mask up!)

    I caught Covid from my brother. I isolated from the day he tested positive, until I went for my Covid test with my mother. My first test was negative, but because my mom was positive, I had to go for a 2nd test. So in the span of 3 and a half weeks, I left my house twice, and that was only to go straight to testing and back. I was allowed to sit out on my back patio, and that’s it. It infuriates me when people are so reckless with other people’s lives.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      You are a good person who doesn’t treat other people’s lives as transactional. These people in the president’s circle and including the Orange Dumbass think nothing of human life. Our lives are fine to sacrifice for their purposes. Thank you for doing your part. Hundreds of people are terrified today because this jerk didn’t care to do his.

  16. L4frimaire says:

    I think Trumps and his team want to infect as many people as possible on their way out the door. Giuliani was sneezing and sweating at his last press conference, no mask in close contact with others. How many people has he exposed and infected? He should be under arrest for public endangerment.

  17. SomeChick says:

    I heard he was rushed to Walter Reed Pool Supply. Thoughts and prayers!

  18. Aimee says:

    All these people (Trump, Guiliani, their assorted minions) better be lucky they didn’t get this back in the spring. They would be dead.

  19. Valerie says:

    I laughed, but the idea of him spreading it to hundreds of people, if not more, cut that short. Fuck him; I reserve all of my sympathy for those who are far outside of his circle and happened to get caught in the crosshairs.
