The rest of the world may be focused on President Trump’s health, but, true to form, Desus Nice and The Kid Mero are concerned about someone else entirely. On Thursday night, the Desus & Mero hosts absolutely eviscerated “zombie” Rudy Giuliani for coughing and hacking his way through a recent interview. “Listen, that’s embalming fluid,” Desus joked of the Trump official’s orange glow. “That man been dead. That man’s been dead since July.”
After working their way through Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis and his decision to leave the hospital “‘roided up,” Desus and Mero turned their attention to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. “Oh shit! Even Rudy Ghoul-iani gave a Fox interview that raised questions about his own health,” said Mero, before playing a clip of Giuliani on Fox News. “Bruh! Bruh! Are they using the same makeup artist?”
“She’s getting a makeup artist. He’s getting a mortician,” cracked Desus. “Look at Weekend at Rudy’s over here,” added Mero. “They look like they just woke him up.”
The Showtime hosts warned Giuliani that his frequent coughing “doesn’t sound so good,” particularly considering that more than 30 people connected to the White House have now tested positive for COVID-19. “Yo, Rudy, go home,” cautioned Mero. “Stop the fight! Stop the fight!”
Desus and Mero then went on an extended riff about Giuliani’s inability to survive a zombie apocalypse. “I feel like right now, all of America is talking about Rudy like — ‘Wow, we survived that zombie attack, alright? Are we all good?’” said Desus. “You turn to Giuliani and he’s like, ‘Yeah, I’m good [cough].’ I’m just clearing my throat.’”
“‘Rudy, what’s that on your shoulder?! Were you bitten?’” he continued, roleplaying the potential attack. “He’s like, ‘Nah, it’s been like that, bro.’”
“Yo, I hate this motherfucker so much,” added Mero as an image of Giuliani with a very orange face and very pale hands appeared onscreen. “No, he’s dead, bro. I’ve seen dead bodies. That n**** is dead. Stop it.”
