"Donald, I thought you were a gentleman!"


What: Rudy Giuliani and President Donald Trump participated in a comedy skit for a charity dinner in 2000. The video featured Giuliani dressed in drag and Trump sniffing Giuliani and pressing his face into the former New York City mayor's breasts.


Why: The video is resurfacing in the wake of Giuliani becoming the newest member of Trump's legal team, as well as various recent high-profile media ​appearances he's made.


​TALKING POINTS

The video depicts an apparent attempt by Trump to seduce Giuliani's character.

Trump: "You know, you're really beautiful.

He rejects Trump's advances after the latter sniffs him.

Giuliani: "Oh, you dirty boy! Donald, I thought you were a gentleman."


Another Giuliani video that's resurfacing is a 1998 interview with Charlie Rose where he appears to contradict recent ​comments asserting the president doesn't need to comply with a subpoena to appear before a grand jury in Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

Giuliani: "You go before a judge and a judge decides whether or not he has a recognizable exemption or privilege from testifying. And if a judge decides that he doesn’t, you have to testify.
