The inclusion of former New York Mayor and Donald Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani as a participant in the most recent edition of the weird singing competition The Masked Singer in the US has drawn a lot of criticism.
You now have all the information you require, including judge Ken Jeong’s response to the reveal.
What Transpired on The American Mask Singer?
Rudy Giuliani’s identity as the wearer of the Jack in the Box disguise was made public on the most recent episode of The Masked Singer in the US.
After being eliminated from the competition and giving his one and only performance, in which he sang George Thorogood & the Destroyers’ Bad to the Bone, Giuliani was revealed.
The primary reason I guess is that I just had a granddaughter, Grace, and I want her to know that you should try anything, even things that are absolutely unlike you and unlikely, said Guiliani when asked why he wanted to be on the show by host Nick Cannon.
“And there is nothing more uncharacteristic of me and improbable than this, I think.
“I also like the show. For years, I have. And it simply felt like fun.
I don’t get to enjoy myself that much.
Why Is Rudy Giuliani Controversial and Who Is He?
Giuliani, an American politician, and attorney, presided as New York City’s 107th mayor from 1994 to 2001.
After joining Donald Trump’s personal legal team in 2018, when Trump was the US President, he rose to prominence as a very divisive personality.
His time serving as Trump’s lawyer attracted a lot of attention, and he was accused of engaging in a variety of unlawful activities.
Giuliani claimed in an interview with Fox News at the beginning of May 2018 that Trump had reimbursed his attorney Michael Cohen for a $130,000 payment made to Stormy Daniels in connection with a sexual encounter she had with him before the 2016 presidential election.
The payment was “funneled via a law firm, and then the President reimbursed it,” according to Giuliani. At the time, his remarks clearly refuted those made by Trump the month before, in which he asserted that he was unaware of the payment made to Daniels.
Giuliani was the subject of a federal investigation in 2019 for breaking lobbying laws.
After Joe Biden won the presidency, Trump put Giuliani at the head of a legal team assembled with the intention of contesting the election outcomes.
On November 19, 2020, this legal team participated in a news conference where they made a variety of assertions and statements about voter fraud.
The roughly 90-minute briefing, according to a fact-checking piece by CNN at the time, “was brimming with inaccuracies and conspiracy theories.”
Additionally, Giuliani appeared alongside Sacha Baron Cohen in the 2020 follow-up to Borat. Giuliani was allegedly seen caressing his genitalia while lying on a bed in a room with an actor playing Borat’s daughter while posing as a TV journalist. He was unaware that he would be appearing in Borat: Subsequent Movie film.
Then, in moment, Borat enters the space and declares, “She’s 15.” She is past your years.
In December of the same year, Giuliani was sued for defamation over bogus claims of electoral fraud by two Georgia poll workers.
A “Save America” event was conducted earlier that day, and Rudy Giuliani gave a speech there, calling for a “trial by combat” and propagating the hoax that Trump’s victory had been “stolen” by voter fraud. This was prior to the mob of Trump supporters assaulting the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.
“We get to witness the machines that are dishonest, the ballots that are fraudulent, during the next 10 days,” he stated. And we will be exposed as fools if we are mistaken. But if we are correct, many of them will face prison time. Let’s conduct a trial by battle, then.
Giuliani’s New York law license was suspended in 2021 after a state appeals court determined that he had lied and made “demonstrably false and deceptive” claims when he claimed that Trump had been the victim of fraud in the 2020 US presidential election.
Has Ken Jeong left the Room?
Judge Ken Jeong appeared unimpressed after Giuliani’s identity was revealed on the program.
Jeong stood in silence with his arms crossed and a dejected expression on his face as Giuliani chatted with Cannon and the other panelists.
Jeong can be seen leaving the stage and can be heard stating, “I’m done,” after Giuliani was requested to sing Bad to the Bone unmasked to end the episode.
Viewers have applauded Jeong for choosing to leave the interview given how Giuliani continued to spread the myth that Biden fraudulently defeated Trump in the presidential race.
When Giuliani revealed himself, Jeong’s colleague judge Robin Thicke was equally uneasy, while Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg and Nicole Scherzinger could be seen chatting with the former attorney and dancing throughout his final performance.
McCarthy praised Giuliani for going on the show, and Scherzinger assured him that his family would be proud of him.
What Was the Opinion of The Audience on The Episode?
The episode received a largely unfavorable response, with many viewers shocked that Giuliani’s piece was ever broadcast by the network.
Writer Parker Molloy tweeted a scene from the episode that read: “This hint was a tribute to Four Season Total Landscaping, which Rudy erroneously booked for a press conference in 2020.” It’s all just a joke for fun.
Because nothing matters, the location where he promoted the election conspiracy claims that permanently tainted our politics is just a fun clue on a nice show.
CAN WE PLEASE STOP PUTTING TRAITORS LIKE RUDY GIULIANI ON SHOWS LIKE THE MASKED SINGER???
STOP NORMALIZING CRIMINALS.
