Rudy Giuliani admitted to the hospital after Trump tweets lawyer tested positive for COVID-19
Screengrab.

According to Donald Trump, a man whose word can only be taken with a grain of salt the size of the moon, Rudolph Giuliani—his personal attorney and conspiracy peddler—has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.


UPDATE: DEC. 6, 2O20 — 6:38 PM

The Wall Street Journal reports that sources say Giuliani was admitted to a hospital on Sunday, which was where he tested positive. Word on his condition still remains unclear.

Let's be honest, the fact that Giuliani hasn't tested positive for COVID-19, with his intimate proximity to the Trump administration and dozens of other White House staff that have already tested positive for the virus, is the only shocking aspect of this piece of news. Giuliani's son Andrew, tested positive a couple of weeks ago. This comes less than 24 hours after it was reported by Bloomberg White House correspondent Jennifer Jacobs reported that Trump's personal assistant Nick Luna had tested positive for the virus.

Will Rudy's farting expose in Michigan mean that the entire room must get tested? Hopefully not. However, it could have been an indicator that Giuliani wasn't doing so well—physically.

Fact check: Rudolph Giuliani is very low on the list of "great" mayors in the history of the country, let alone New York City.
