The below video from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is gaining loads of attention online. Colbert called Rudy Giuliani the former mayor of New York — as well as “the guy who took away your Times Square porn.” Colbert noted Rudy’s suggestion for people to Google “Hillary Clinton illness” as one as hilarious as Colbert diagnosing his own symptoms and discovering he has menopause.
Warning: The following video, titled “Google ‘Donald Trump Rudy Giuliani Drag Queen Motorboat’,” might be disturbing to some viewers.
Colbert pointed to an actual video that Rudy made — while wearing drag — with Trump. In the video, Trump appears to stick his face in Rudy’s fake cleavage. The video was made in 2000, but is making the rounds again because of the Colbert segment.
Upon Googling “Hillary Clinton illness,” Colbert joked that he found mentions of Rudy’s accusations about Clinton’s health problems ludicrous. Therefore, instead, Stephen said people should Google “Donald Trump Rudy Giuliani Drag Queen Motorboat” and check out Rudy’s crazy video with Trump from 16 years ago.
Apparently, people are doing just what Colbert suggested, because the old video has grown to nearly 1.5 million views.
The Colbert segment video has gotten more than 125,000 views since August 24, the same day it was uploaded to YouTube. It is so popular that it is listed on the “Popular Right Now” list of videos on YouTube in position No. 5 out of 200 videos.
As reported by Politico, Giuliani claimed that the media does not point out Hillary’s illnesses. That’s when Rudy urged people to go online and research her alleged sicknesses.
“Go online and put down ‘Hillary Clinton illness,’ take a look at the videos yourself.”
As reported by CNN, the supposed Clinton sickness videos are the stuff of conspiracy theorists. The publications reporting consistently about Clinton’s supposed sicknesses tend to be conservative sites like Breitbart, Infowars, and Fox News.
One supposed seizure that Hillary suffered claimed to be caught on tape. A video like the one below, which enjoys more than two million views on YouTube, claimed to reveal Clinton having a seizure.
However, watching full versions of the video, which haven’t been altered and slowed down — the ones that have the full footage and original audio attached — do not appear to show Clinton having a seizure, but reacting to the fact that several reporters began shouting their questions at her as soon as Hillary stopped speaking.
Associated Press reporter Lisa Lerer debunked the seizure rumors in her article titled “Video proves Clinton suffering seizures? Not so, I was there,” which let readers know that Clinton was jerking her head back on purpose. After the motion, Clinton took the opportunity to pose for more photos and to greet Clinton supporters who had been waiting for the presidential candidate outside.
Meanwhile, reaction to Colbert’s segment, which contained the 16-year-old clip of Rudy and Trump created for Inner Circle Show, that folks are posting on social media about the video can be seen below.
“No, I will not Google that. I will Google something about physics instead.”
“Trump has a narcissistic personality disorder.”

“Explain why every Trump speech is ‘trending’ on YouTube. Google owns YouTube.”
“You ‘Googled’ it!? Google has been known to filter results in favor of Hillary Clinton, so Googling Hillary may very well be ignorant in this case… Enjoy your Clinton supporter money Colbert…”
