Just like you, former NYC mayor and human lima bean Rudy Giuliani tries to make navigating the airport a little less stressful by blocking out the mayhem with a pair of headphones—in his case, the user-friendly, utterly simple Apple AirPods. Unlike you, he thinks you're supposed to wear them like this:

Let's take a closer look, shall we?

The headphones are bafflingly stuck into Giuliani's skull at both 30- and 45-degree angles, respectively. And it's not even clear that they're in the correct earhole, which you'd think might clue him in to the fact that something was off. As Trump's cybersecurity adviser, you'd at the very least like to think the guy knows how to use basic tech.

Still, the best part about this photo is that GOP strategist Rick Wilson, who took the shot, either doesn't know how AirPods work either, or does and just posed for the pic with ol' Rudy anyway.

This man needs help. Where are his friends?
