There were two instances during the hearing in which President Donald Trump's personal attorney appeared to pass gas. The squeaky little farts were heard not only by those sitting adjacent to Donald Trump's besmirched lawyer Rudy Giuliani but also picked up by the courtroom microphones.
Rudy Giuliani, US President Donald Trump's personal attorney faced yet another embarrassment when he farted while spreading conspiracy theories during a recent hearing. Rudy Giuliani has repeatedly hit the headlines for things going wrong in recent weeks; from his hair dye running down his face to that scene in Borat 2.
President Donald Trump's personal attorney went viral overnight Wednesday over a clip in which he appeared to pass gas 😳 during an election hearing. Later, a second video seemed to show a different fart. The video clip was shared by HuffPost reporter Ryan Reilly on Twitter. It has since been viewed more than 3 million times.

Responding to a question from Michigan state Rep. Darrin Camilleri about the New York Times story that Giuliani is lobbying President Donald Trump for a preemptive pardon, the attorney objected vehemently to what he said was a defamatory question.
"I will ask that he be disciplined for that," Giuliani said as a microphone picked up a faint tooting sound.
State Rep. Darrin Camilleri, a Democrat from Dearborn, Michigan, who represents Brownstown in the legislature, tweeted about the incident Friday morning.
Making a joke about being featured on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" for his questioning of Giuliani, Camilleri said the fart was real.
I can tell you that making a cameo on @jimmykimmel for questioning Rudy Giuliani during an evidence-free hearing and startling him so much that he farted definitely wasn’t on my 2020 bingo card 💨— Darrin Camilleri (@darrincamilleri) December 4, 2020
Camilleri told Insider in an email that beyond the comic relief, the lack of evidence presented at the hearing concerned him.
"From the moment we found out that House Republicans were really going through with the blatantly partisan act of allowing Rudy Giuliani and other members of the Trump legal team to testify before an official committee of the Michigan House of Representatives, this whole thing has seemed surreal," Camilleri said.
He added: "In normal times, using our time and taxpayer dollars to investigate illegitimate claims of election fraud would be wasteful, but in the middle of a pandemic, it's cowardly and cruel."
Giuliani did not respond to a request for comment from Insider.
This is how the internet reacted to the viral video 😂
Reacting to the footage, some Twitter users appeared to notice Jenna Ellis, another attorney assisting Giuliani in fighting the result of the 2020 election, appeared to give the 76-year-old a side glance when the second fart was picked up by his microphone.
JENNA'S FACE 😭😭😭— Holly Figueroa O'Reilly (@AynRandPaulRyan) December 3, 2020
Rudy farting so loudly that the mic picked it up and Jenna could barely hold back a laugh is peak 2020, man.
Girl, aren't you sad you refused to wear a mask? 😂#ThursdayThoughts #thursdaymorning

The reflex of Jenna Ellis sitting next to Giuliani to the second fart confirms it's real.
For anyone wondering - I checked two different camera angles on two different videos. The farts are present on both. pic.twitter.com/pMEG8OxMUe
