Late-night hosts mock Rudy Giuliani's positive coronavirus diagnosis: 'Only got himself to blame'

Late-night hosts pounced on the opportunity to make jokes on Monday night after it came to light that 鲁迪朱利安尼 had tested positive for the 新冠病毒.

Giuliani said he isgetting great care and feeling goodSunday night after President Trump announced that his personal attorney had tested positive for the virus, which has infected more than 14,954,329 美国人. The former New York City mayor has been leading the Trump campaign’s legal battle to overturn the 2020 几个州的选举结果, which various late-night hosts were quick to mock during their shows Monday.

“Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for the coronavirus, although he is suing to have that result overturned,” joked the host of “The Daily Show,” 特雷弗·诺亚. “But right now, it doesn’t look good and the truth is that Rudy has only got himself to blame for this. 我的意思是, this dude was going all over the country refusing to wear a mask. What do you expect? If I go around licking car windshields, I can’t be surprised if I get bird flu.”

James Corden made a similar joke during his opening monologue.


“Who would have thought? Especially after Giuliani had taken every precaution and thrown it out the window while screaming about election fraud in a crowded room with no mask,” 他开玩笑. “Giuliani says he’s feeling fine and that after all of his lawsuits have been rejected by the courts it just feels good to finally get a positive outcome on anything.”

Jimmy Kimmel mused that “we may look back and see that Rudy gave his life to overturn the results of the election.”

他加了: “This COVID test is the only positive thing to come out of Rudy Giuliani in the last 4 年份。”

“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Kimmel echoed those sentiments by acting out a fake exchange between Giuliani and his doctor.

“I hope Rudy is OK,” Fallon said. “When they did his nasal swab, it came out black. 显然地, the doctor asked ‘when do you start feeling off?’”

He joked that Giuliani’s response was “about 2009ish.”


Fallon concluded his thoughts on Giuliani saying: “I hope Rudy is getting good care because if he picks medical experts like he picks legal experts, his ‘doctor’ is going to be some random guy he found at an Applebees happy hour.”

Seth Meyers, who routinely lambasts both Trump and Giuliani on his show, mocked the president’s tweet that announced the news.

“President Trump tweeted yesterday that his personal lawyer had tested positive for the coronavirus and said ‘get better soon Rudy, 我们将继续,’” Meyers explained. “We will carry on? 男子, you’ve got to love Trump’s bedside manner. ‘Get well soon Rudy, you were a good man. Rest in peace.’”

朱利亚尼, 76, is the latest official of Trump’s orbit to become infected with the coronavirus over the course of the pandemic. 白宫新闻秘书凯利·麦肯尼(Kayleigh McEnany), 高级顾问Hope Hicks, and chief of staff Mark Meadows are among other senior staffers who have tested positive for the virus and since recovered.


The news of Giuliani’s diagnosis comes nearly two weeks after his son Andrew, also a White House staffer, 测试COVID-19呈阳性. 据报道,高级朱利安尼(Giuliani)当时测试为阴性.

As of Tuesday morning, the novel coronavirus has infected 多于 67,653,117 整个人 191 国家和地区, 导致至少 1,545,824 死亡人数. 在美国。, 所有 50 各州以及哥伦比亚特区都报告了确诊的COVID-19病例, 超过 14,954,329 疾病,至少 283,743 死亡人数.
