Sacha Baron Cohen thanks Trump for 'free publicity for Borat'

‘Borat’s daughter’ visited White House, came within meters of Trump, met his son

In the film, Cohen's iconic Kazakh newsman character is given the mission of delivering a gift to Trump's Vice President Mike Pence in order to save Kazakhstan from the disgrace it faced from the first Borat movie.

In one scene that has been the subject of much critical attention, Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, goes to a hotel room with Bakalova, in which he is filmed laying on the bed and touching himself in an apparently sexually suggestive way.

In the film, which is the sequel to the 2006 Borat original, Mr Giuliani is shown on a bed with his hand down his pants after the young woman helps him remove recording equipment. "And when the electronic equipment came off, some of it was in the back and my shirt came a little out, although my clothes were entirely on".

He claims he "was tucking in his shirt" in the scene in question. I confess I do not find you amusing either.

Here are five things to know about Sacha, his career, and his reaction to the controversy.

A deleted scene from Borat Subsequent Moviefilm featuring President Donald Trump and his, son Donald Trump Jr., has been released online.


In it, he says: "What was an innocent sexy time encounter between a consenting man and my 15-year-old daughter have been turned into something disgusting by fake news media".

Baron Cohen reacted to Giuliani's rejection specifying "it was quite clear to us" what happened in that hotelspace "If the President's legal representative found what he did there suitable behavior, then heaven understands what he's done with other female journalists in hotel rooms", Baron Cohen specified. "I urge everyone to watch the movie. It is what it is". "He did what he did. make your own mind up".

"And I was the only one that said: 'No way". Bakalova says that she felt "safe" during the entire shoot.

The mockumentary style sequel made headlines last week when a clip from it showed former NY mayor and vocal Trump supporter Rudy Giuliani in a hotel room with a woman acting as a journalist. "However my daughter, Ivanka, noticed it and thought it was very cool".

He also told his 841,000 followers he has "called the police" once he realised that it was a "set up". "He then ran away".
