Ex-Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani was duped by a TikTok comedian into smiling and laughing while being called a "pendejo" – Spanish for "idiot" – at a New York Young Republican Club gala on Sunday.
The comedian, Walter Masterson, known for posing as a right-winger to ensnare Trump allies, apparently approached Giuliani at the event while filming a TikTok to the tune of M.C. Hammer's "Can't Touch This," with the song's defining lyric substituted for "pendejo."

The video – captioned "Rudy Giuliani made a TIK TOK with me" – shows the tuxedoed former New York Mayor smiling and laughing along to the song, which he lets call him the Spanish version of "idiot" three times consecutively.
Rudy Giuliani made a Tik Tok with me.
Giuliani has been no stranger to pranks and gaffes over the past several years.
During the filming of Sacha Baron Cohen's "Borat 2," Giuliani was caught in a compromising position in a hotel bed with an actress posing as a 15-year-old journalist. Giuliani later called the film a "hit job" and a "complete fabrication."

Back in November 2020, four days after the presidential election, Giuliani, then an attorney to Donald Trump, erroneously held a press conference in the parking lot of a landscaping company called "Four Seasons Total Landscaping" instead of the Four Seasons hotel in Washington.
