Rudy Guiliani was mocked online recently for his appearance at a press conference alleging voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
During Thursday's press conference, viewers cringed after noticing what appeared to be dark streaks of perspiration running down the sides of Guiliani's face that many believed was hair dye.
But a new discovery from the same press conference had people gagging on the internet.
The former New York City mayor and Donald Trump's personal attorney blew his nose into a handkerchief and proceeded to use the same side of the cloth to wipe his face.
A video of Guiliani's health and hygienic impropriety was shared on Twitter.
Warning: may cause dry-heaves.

This was not Guiliani's first handkerchief caper.
@timjhogan This might be even more disgusting than his previous handkerchief malfunction: https://t.co/lQOiIz0rjU— Oren B. (@Oren B.)1605829840.0
Guiliani's son – Andrew Guiliani, who also works for the President as his Public Liaison Assistant – announced on Twitter he had tested positive for the virus on November 20.
Contact tracing would reveal the 34-year-old political aide was around White House staff – including his father – at the press conference the day before he tested positive.
Andrew Guiliani wrote in his tweet:
"I am experiencing mild symptoms, and am following all appropriate protocols, including being in quarantine and conducting contact tracing."
