Nonverbal Communication Analysis No. 3834: Rudy Giuliani Regarding President Trump wanting a “Muslim ban” - Body Language and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Rudy Giuliani was a guest on Fox News on 28 Jan 2017. Understandably, a portion of this interview with Jeanine Pirro has drawn tremendous attention. The entire video is included above. What follows below is a transcript of the specific segment in question - along with a nonverbal analysis of a few crucial body language tells.

Note: The original video has, since the original post, been removed from its online source. The images below however, were captured from this video

Beginning at 2:58 in the above video, Jeanine Pirro continues: "... Does the Ban have anything to do with religion? How did the President decide the seven countries? Ah, I understand [3:05] the permanent Ban on the refugees -"

Rudy Giuliani [over-talking]: "Okay - "

Jeanine Pirro: [over-talking]: "Ah - "

Rudy Giuliani [over-talking]: "I'm - "

Jeanine Pirro [over-talking]: "Okay - talk to me."

Rudy Giuliani [over-talking]: "... Tell you the whole history of it."

Jeanine Pirro [over-talking]: "Alright."

Rudy Giuliani: "So, when he first announced it, he said, 'Muslim Ban.' He called me  up. He said, 'Put a commission together. Show me the right way to do it legally.' [Loose Tongue Jut during 3:19]. I put a commission together with Judge Mukasey, with Congressman McCaul, Pete King - whole group of very expert lawyers on this. And what we did was focus on - instead of religion, danger. The areas of the World that create danger for us. Which is a factual basis - not a religious basis. Perfectly legal, perfectly sensible. And that's what the ban is based on..."

During 3:05, as Jeanine Pirro says, "... I understand ...", as he is impatient to speak (both he and Pirro interrupt each other multiple times), Rudy Giuliani transitions rapidly from a sincere smile (captured immediately above) to a "Loose Tongue Jut" (NOT to be confused with a "Tight Tongue Jut") (shown in the image immediately below) in less that a second.

The camera then breaks away to a protest view, but then returns to Giuliani and during 3:19 - immediately after he says, "... Put a commission together. Show me the right way to do it legally ..." - we see another Loose Tongue Jut (below).

The Loose Tongue Jut - particularly when rapidly following a sincere smile - is a strong indicator of the thought-emotions of "I've been bad", "I've Done a foolish thing" and "I've been caught" (Navarro).
