Donald Trump’s lawyer has gone viral again after people noticed him doing something “gross” in the background of a press conference.

After already making headlines for having his hair dye run down the side of his face during a press conference on Thursday (local time), Rudy Giuliani was noticed on camera blowing his nose with a handkerchief.

He then proceeded to wipe his mouth and face with the same side of cloth - sending social media users wild.

Giuliani on Thursday claimed the Trump campaign had “more than double the number of votes needed to overturn the election”.

Trump has disputed losing to Democrat Joe Biden.

However, it seems the message was lost with people more preoccupied with Giuliani’s hanky.

“Gross,” one woman tweeted.

“First, he blew his nose and folded the napkin outward. Then he wiped his mouth and his face with the same napkin that he wiped his nose with. Basically he wiped stuff from his nose and wiped it all over his mouth and face.”

Another woman tweeted she could have gone the rest of her life without seeing the footage.

“Absolutely no understanding of contamination control, Covid or no,” one man tweeted.

“Sadly, Rudy and his hanky are present in so many places. He's a one-man super-spreader.”

Unfortunately, Giuliani has only courted controversy and been the butt of jokes throughout the 2020 US election.

Before people went to the polls, Giuliani was asked a series of questions about a scene in Borat 2.

In the scene, Giuliani is speaking to a woman before he lays down on a bed and putting his hands down his pants.

He later told ABC he was trying to fix his microphone and was tucking in his shirt.

Weeks later Giuliani and the Trump campaign went viral for calling a press conference with claims of voter fraud at what was thought to be the famous the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia.

Trump had tweeted to his supporters telling them of the event at the Four Seasons.

However, a mishap with the booking saw the Giuliani conducting the presser in front of small local business Four Seasons Total Landscaping – across the street from a crematorium.

Nonetheless, the presser still went ahead.

Trump’s staffers told The New York Times it wasn’t actually a mistake and there had been a miscommunication with the president over the phone before he tweeted.
