Rudy Giuliani Uploaded His racist Asian Impression to YouTube
Oct 18 2020
That's probably what President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani is thinking after either he or a carless member of his staff uploaded a video onto YouTube which has him mocking Asians in a racist way.
"Ah so, Jayne Zirkle", Giuliani joked in a reference to one of his aides in the video.
Giuliani's video was an excerpt from his Tuesday interview with Sean Spicer, the former White House Press Secretary for Spicer's podcast Common Sense, The Daily Beast reports. In the video, Giuliani is seen mocking an Asian accent and bowing.
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was caught on tape - by Rudy Giuliani - doing a racist impersonation that was then accidentally posted to hizzoner's own YouTube page.
Editors apparently kept rolling minutes after the interview ended and captured the former NY mayor mocking Asians. An animated Giuliani then puts on 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 multiple times while using the accent, referring to Jayne Zirkle, a Trump supporter.
He eventually adds an offensive-Asian-style-bow while saying her name. Finally, the video cuts out. In October of a year ago, he butt-dialed NBC News reporter Rich Shapiro and left a message in which he complained about his cash flow problems. 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.
