Rudy Giuliani has been in the headlines recently for his murky role in the fabricated Hunter Biden laptop scandal, a complete nonstory that has all the hallmarks of a desperate and trumped-up partisan hack job. Now, the former New York mayor and current attorney for President Trump is about to find himself receiving press of a very different kind.
The Guardian reports that the 76-year-old Giuliani makes an unwitting appearance in Sacha Baron Cohen’s soon-to-be-released sequel to Borat, the hit 2006 mockumentary in which Cohen went undercover as an absurd man from Kazakstan who uses his own exaggerated ignorance to bait unsuspecting Americans into often shocking admissions and compromising situations.
In the new film, Giuliani is caught on hidden camera slipping a hand inside his pants, seemingly to stimulate his genitals in the presence of the young actress who plays Borat’s daughter in the movie. 25-year-old Maria Bakalova plays the role of the 15-year-old character, but in the scene in question her character is undercover as another character, a reporter for a conservative outlet. After conducting a fake interview with Giuliani, the two of them retire to a hotel room for drinks, at which point he starts to do…whatever it is he thinks he’s doing.
Before the encounter proceeds any further, Cohen’s Borat bursts into the room and says: “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”
The Daily Mail posted a screenshot of the scene.
In July, Giuliani’s encounter with Cohen was reported on in less detail. He spoke to Page Six about the staged interview but failed to mention the hotel encounter. He also claimed that Cohen “didn’t get” him and said he was proud to have avoided being fooled.
“This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit. It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn’t what I would call distractingly attractive,” said Giuliani.
“This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shakedown, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away,” added Giuliani. The authorities deemed that no crime had been committed and did not pursue the incident further.
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan will be released this Friday Amazon Prime Video but Twitter users are already inundating the former mayor with mockery.
I just watched the Borat/Giuliani scene….

So…was QAnon a long con designed to catch Rudy Giuliani? Is Borat Q?

Sacha Baron Cohen deserves the Nobel Prize for his Borat Rudy Giuliani takedown.

Yeah the Borat thing is hilarious but can you imagine what professionally trained GRU and FSB assets could get out of Giuliani? He’s a counterintelligence nightmare.

Trumpists and far-left auxiliary Trumpists may have just gotten a belated clue why so many in media were reluctant to just accept Giuliani's word about materials they weren't allowed to authenticate.

Hey Trumpalos and Fox and Federalist just wanted to compliment you on your ongoing great judgment in promoting and betting on Giuliani. Well done, you should definitely be leading the country.

I did not just spend days living through the Toobin discourse only to have to see pictures of Rudy Giuliani touching himself, people. Take it to Reddit.
