Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's personal attorney and the former mayor of New York City, has been aggressively fighting the election results in Pennsylvania and other battleground states that President-elect Joe Biden won. On Thursday, Giuliani was present during a Trump campaign press update on the campaign's increasingly absurd and reckless efforts to challenge the results. But in a sign of just how slapdash disorganized these efforts are, the campaign's YouTube stream seemed to catch a member of the Trump team on a hot mic making an insulting comment about Giuliani's hair.


Obviously not realizing that the audio had been left on, the person can be heard laughing and saying, "You see fucking Rudy's hair dye dripping down his face."

Biden presently has 306 votes in the Electoral College and leads Trump by more than 5.8 million in the popular vote. However, Trump's campaign has been claiming, without evidence, that the election results were tainted by widespread voter fraud — and Giuliani has played a prominent role in Trump's legal efforts.
