Late-night comedians found ways to make light of Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani coming down with COVID-19.

The late-night comedians including Trevor Noah and Jimmy Kimmel mocked Giuliani’s diagnosis and his push to have the 2020 election results overturned during their shows Monday night.


“Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for the coronavirus, although he is suing to have that result overturned,” Noah joked. “But right now, it doesn’t look good and the truth is that Rudy has only got himself to blame for this. I mean, this dude was going all over the country refusing to wear a mask. What do you expect? If I go around licking car windshields, I can’t be surprised if I get bird flu.”

Jimmy Kimmel joked that Giuliani “gave his life” in order to overturn the results.

“We may look back and see that Rudy gave his life to overturn the results of the election,” Kimmel said on the show. (RELATED: Rudy Giuliani Tests Positive For Coronavirus)

“This COVID test is the only positive thing to come out of Rudy Giuliani in the last 4 years,” he added.

Fallon made a joke about Giuliani’s nasal swab during his show.

“I hope Rudy is OK,” Fallon said during his show. “When they did his nasal swab, it came out black. Apparently, the doctor asked ‘when do you start feeling off?'”

“About 2009ish,” Fallon quipped.

He went on to say, “I hope Rudy is getting good care because if he picks medical experts like he picks legal experts, his ‘doctor’ is going to be some random guy he found at an Applebees happy hour.”

James Corden also used Giuliani as comedic fodder for his show.

“Who would have thought? Especially after Giuliani had taken every precaution and thrown it out the window while screaming about election fraud in a crowded room with no mask,” Corden said. “Giuliani says he’s feeling fine and that after all of his lawsuits have been rejected by the courts it just feels good to finally get a positive outcome on anything.”

Even Seth Meyers, who is no stranger to mocking Trump, joined in with his own joke.

“President Trump tweeted yesterday that his personal lawyer had tested positive for the coronavirus and said ‘get better soon Rudy, we will carry on,'” Meyers said. “We will carry on? Man, you’ve got to love Trump’s bedside manner. ‘Get well soon Rudy, you were a good man. Rest in peace.'”

Trump revealed Giuliani had tested positive for coronavirus Sunday.
