And it’s quite clear that Rudy Giuliani was actively interested in Maria Bakalova during the hotel-interview sequence. He joins Maria in the bedroom for a drink, he gives her a pat on the hip, he asks for her contact info, etc. And then for some curious reason he tucks his shirt into his pants while lying on the bed. I’ve never done that in my entire life. If my dress shirt needs a good tucking, I stand up, loosen my trousers, push the shirt in and tuck tuck tuck!

Does Rudy do anything lewd or offensive? No, he’s gentlemanly and polite. But he’s also into the possibility that he might be into something good a la Herman’s Hermits.
