New Borat film Cons Rudy Giuliani And Leaves Him With A Whole Lot Of Explaining To Do
The New ‘Borat’ sequel film "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm" released Friday shows ex-New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani in a compromising position.
Controversy is swirling after the Friday release of Sacha Baron Cohen’s new “Borat” film, a satirical look at the United States Of America. It comes less than two weeks in advance of a hotly contested presidential election.
One of the most controversial moments in the film involves Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani who agreed to be interviewed by an actress pretending to be a reporter. The actress portrayed Baron Cohen’s 15-year-old daughter in the film.
The scene was shot in a New York hotel room in July, and includes a moment when Giuliani, 76, is lying on a bed and has his hand in his pants.
Giuliani, who went to the hotel room believing that he was being interviewed about the Trump administration’s COVID-19 response, can be heard asking for the woman’s phone number, address and behaving in a really creepy manner. At one point, he also pats her on the lower back.
The former mayor of New York responded when media reports about the scene first emerged this week, saying on Wednesday that the video is “a complete fabrication”.
“I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment,” Giuliani tweeted.
“At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar.”
At the end of the scene, a disguised Baron Cohen rushes into the room, dressed in pink lingerie, shouting that the woman is 15.
Giuliani told The New York Times that he called the police after the mock interview took place.
“He and all his crew ran away leaving their equipment behind,” he said, referring to Baron Cohen.
Giuliani was clearly taken in by the prank and will have a difficult time convincing viewers otherwise.
Trump is a central theme of the new Borat film, a sequel to a 2006 mockumentary in which Baron Cohen returns as his alter ego from Kazakhstan and gets caught up in a plot that involves the corona virus and trying to give his daughter as a gift to US Vice President Mike Pence
Republican politicians have fallen for Baron Cohen’s pranks before. In 2008, Republicans endorsed a gun programme in which four-year-olds are trained to use military-grade weaponry in Baron Cohen’s comedy series Who is America?
Playing the role of an Israeli anti-terrorist expert, Baron Cohen successfully convinced former Congressman Joe Walsh, former Senator Trent Lott, California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and South Carolina Congressman Joe Wilson to endorse “kinder-guardians”.
God Bless the United States Of America!
