Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who is currently awaiting coronavirus test results, coughed during a Fox News interview on Monday night in which he attacked Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for constantly wearing a mask , claiming that it was a “political declaration” intended to “frighten”. people.
Moments after President Donald Trump returned to the White House while still battling COVID-19 – a homecoming that included a photo shoot moment with the president panting removing his face mask – Giuliani appeared on Fox News ” The story with Martha MacCallum to discuss Trump’s diagnosis of COVID-19 and how the virus rages through Trumpworld.
After the former New York mayor gushed over the president’s “remarkable turnaround”, even though the White House doctor admitted the president was “not out of the woods yet,” presenter Martha MacCallum asked Giuliani if he had recently had another coronavirus test.
Giuliani visited with the president at last week’s presidential debate and helped prepare for Trump’s debate. Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who was also in the debate prep room, noted that “no one wore a mask” during the session. Christie and several others in the room have since tested positive for COVID-19.
“I did. I had one about two hours ago,” said the former mayor, whose first test was negative. “I haven’t got the results yet. I went to NYU. I had one throughout the nose tests.
MacCallum responded that she hoped Giuliani would get a “negative on this” before moving on to Biden, noting that the former vice president – who has been vigilant with wearing a mask and social distancing – recently said that ‘he wanted people to follow science and experts.
“Well, I would tell Joe that you don’t really understand what scientists are,” Giuliani hissed. “First of all, listen to your doctors. They know your personal story. Doctors are really not scientists. Scientists almost always have divergent opinions. This is science. “
He then took issue with Biden wearing face masks on a regular basis in public, claiming that Biden uses the mask as a scare tactic and to attack his opponents.
“It’s not science to wear this mask, Joe, when you are giving a speech and people are 30 to 40 yards away from you,” exclaimed Giuliani. “The only thing you can infect is the teleprompter near you. So I see through you. It is a political statement to scare people by wearing this mask. You don’t need this mask when standing on a podium. “
MacCallum, playing “devil’s advocate,” said Biden would likely note that wearing a mask has helped him stay COVID-free while Trump – a loud skeptical mask – was infected. Giuliani replied that he personally had not gotten sick and that he “didn’t wear as many masks” as he probably should.
As the interview drew to a close, Giuliani began to cough and hack loudly, prompting MacCallum to express a little concern as she finished the conversation.
“Mayor Giuliani, thank you very much for your time, and we look forward to seeing you again. And I hope the cough isn’t something serious while you wait for your test to come back, ”she said. “We hope you will be healthy and healthy.”
“I hope too,” Giuliani reacts, laughing. “I’ll let you know tomorrow.”
