A video of US president Donald Trump pushing his face into former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani’s chest for a drag queen comedy sketch has been making the rounds on social media again in the wake of the call for an inquiry to impeach Trump and Guliani’s alleged involvement seems to have both men circling the drain.
The video was recorded in 2000 when Mr Trump was a property magnate, and was part of the Mayor’s Inner Circle Press Roast. This was an annual event which sees New York politicians and White House journalists stage skits and parody themselves for charity.
The clip sees Mr. Giuliani dressed in drag flirting with the president.
It ends with Mr. Trump nuzzling his face into Mr. Giuliani’s fake breasts.
“Oh, you dirty boy, you!” the mayor exclaims and slaps Mr. Trump in the face.
“Donald, I thought you were a gentleman!” Mr. Giuliani’s alter-ego says as he distances himself from the mogul-turned-politico.
“Can’t say I didn’t try!” Mr. Trump replies.
Giuliani made a splash several times dressing as “Rudia” — his drag alter-ego — for the event.
A 1997 report from The New York Times of Rudia’s first outing described the spectators as “thunderstruck.”
