Rudy Giuliani exploded at a reporter for "lying" during a fiery question-and-answer with journalists, where he accused the media of exposing Donald Trump's lawyers to death threats through "ridiculous" coverage.

The former New York mayor berated the assembled media throughout the 90-minute press conference at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington DC on Thursday afternoon (Friday NZT), where the Trump campaign laid out sweeping, unproven allegations of a massive voter fraud scheme to steal the election for Joe Biden.

Broadcaster Dean Butler and TVNZ host Hayley Holt join The Weekend Collective to discuss this, along with more issues making news this week.
