Rudy Giuliani Posts Footage of Himself Mocking Asians to YouTube
Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani was caught mocking Asians and even pantomiming a bow in video footage his team accidentally posted to his YouTube page on Wednesday.
The remarks came well after Giuliani had finished interviewing former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer for his podcast, Common Sense. The taping appeared to take place on Tuesday. But a version of it was also posted as a video online on Wednesday. And in that video, the editors not only kept rolling but posted that excess footage along with the Spicer interview.
朱利安尼发表上述言论之前很久，朱利安尼刚刚完成了对前白宫新闻秘书肖恩·斯派塞(Sean Spicer)的播客“常识”(Common Sense)的采访。录音似乎发生在周二。但周三，它的一个版本也以视频的形式发布在网上。在那段视频中，编辑们不仅继续滚动，还将多余的镜头与斯派塞的采访一起上传。
For several minutes on the extended YouTube version, the screen was black and silent. Then Spicer appeared briefly to sign out, leaving Giuliani at his desk speaking with individuals off-screen, apparently unaware the camera was still recording.
After a few moments of small talk with an assistant who appears to be Jayne Zirkle, an animated Giuliani started affecting a stereotypical Chinese accent while telling Zirkle that she’s “going to be the most famous model in China.”
“Ah, get me Jayne Zirkle,” he said while using the accent.
After asking others in the room what they wanted for dinner, Giuliani continued to say Zirkle’s name in the mocking accent. He then started pantomiming a bow while repeating her name. Then the video cuts out.
Giuliani did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
This isn’t the first time that the former New York mayor’s has had an embarrassing run-in with modern technology, resulting in Giuliani revealing more than he wanted. Late last year, the Trump attorney mistakenly butt-dialed an NBC reporter late at night.
When the reporter woke up, he discovered a three-minute-long voice message from Giuliani, featuring the ex-mayor discussing overseas dealings and his need for cash. That butt-dial came 18 days after another one in which a different reporter also let it Giuliani's call go to voicemail, only to later discover Giuliani complaining to another person about becoming the target of public attacks because he slammed a powerful Democrat.
