The former New York mayor, who is now President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, was reportedly heard talking about needing money and ranting about the president’s potential 2020 Democratic rival Joe Biden in the recordings received by Rich Schapiro.
It prompted some people to share their own stories of being inadvertently called by Giuliani:
everyone has a good Rudy butt dial story. I've heard him on what sounded like a plane, at the airport, at what sounded like a bar. "SIR, SIR! HELLO!" Alas.— Josh Dawsey (@jdawsey1) October 25, 2019
Others just poked fun at the lawyer over the bizarre incident:
