The former mayor and personal attorney to President Trump went to the Mark Hotel on Tuesday for what he thought was a serious interview about the administration's response to COVID-19. He said he was offered payment for the interview, and asked that the money be donated to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
A female interviewer began the conversation in a room fitted out with a professional set-up of lights and camera with a few softball questions before, as Giuliani tells us, "This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit.
"It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn't what I would call distractingly attractive."
Giuliani, 76, said he didn't immediately recognize the gate-crasher as Cohen: "This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away."
