Rudy Giuliani was mocked for his 'dripping hair dye' on an apparently accidentally open microphone during a live stream of a press conference on boss Donald Trump's own YouTube channel.
Giuliani, the star of Borat 2 and Trump's personal lawyer, who was previously seen giving a press conference at Four Seasons Total Landscaping in Philadelphia, was apparently quite hot as he attempted to undermine democracy on live television."
As he spoke in Washington DC, he appeared to slowly melt.
And after a while, the dripping took on a dark grey tinge.
Oh yeah, and he alleged a vast, certainly communist, possibly Semitic conspiracy to steal the election from Donald Trump, which Joe Biden may or may not have known about.
And he called for millions of legal votes, cast in Detroit, America's largest majority black city, to be tossed out and the state of Michigan called for Trump, who lost it in the election.
Meanwhile, as the press conference was live streamed on President Trump's official channel, voices were heard in the background.
One said: "Can they hear us on the stream? I guess not."
Reader, they could hear them

But they could.
Another voice was heard to say: "You see f***in' Rudy's hair dye dripping down his face?"
For his part, Giuliani did his best for an hour and 45 minutes to convince Americans that the election was rigged, that there was a 'national conspiracy' behind it, and that Venezuela and George Soros were involved in some way.
He provided no evidence for any of his claims.
Giuliani said accounts of suspicious activity would ultimately overturn the election, which Biden won nationwide by 5.9 million votes. Some of those accounts have already been thrown out of court.

"We cannot allow these crooks – because that's what they are – to steal this election. They elected Donald Trump. They didn't elect Joe Biden," Giuliani said.
Giuliani's agitated performance, was widely mocked.
Others expressed alarm.
"That press conference was the most dangerous 1hr 45 minutes of television in American history," tweeted Christopher Krebs, who headed up the U.S. government's efforts to combat election disinformation until he was fired by Trump earlier this week.
Trump's refusal to concede has serious implications for national security and the fight against the coronavirus, which has killed more than 250,000 Americans.
Among other concerns, the administration has held up funding and security clearances in the transition period before Biden is inaugurated on Jan. 20.
