The 'Borat' Sequel: How Rudy Giuliani Is Defending His Unwitting Cameo

A giant inflatable Borat has taken over the Toronto waterfront

With Borat Subsequent Moviefilm premiering on Friday on Amazon Prime Video, a giant inflatable version of the pop culture icon, played by Sacha Baron Cohen, took over the city's waterfront and let's just say, it's providing some much needed comic relief. After the interview and some flirting between the two, the actress suggests that the pair have a drink in the bedroom of a hotel suite which is rigged with concealed cameras.

Giuliani added that he only realised later on that man in the "transgender outfit" was the famous actor and comedian, and said he was proud that he wasn't fooled by him. He is then seen sitting on the bed as she helps him remove his microphone, untucking his shirt in the process.

It has already generated a political storm over in the USA where President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani was secretly recorded for the film.

Giuliani spoke about a report in The Hollywood Reporter from July about the interview.

Cohen, dressed as Borat, then walks in the room and offers himself to the politician, who responds, "I don't want you".

Once news of the scene was covered by the media, Giuliani claimed in a radio interview that he was trying to take off his microphone and tucking in his shirt when he reached into his trousers. "It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd". President Trump's personal attorney went on to say that "this is a hit job".

Sacha Baron Cohen's character, Kazakh journalist Borat Sagdiyev, has "defended" Rudy Guiliani in a video posted to Twitter.

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, the sequel to the 2006 comedy Borat, is one of the funniest things you'll watch this year.

He said he was tucking his shirt in after taking off recording equipment following an interview, and said at no point was he ever inappropriate.

In a particularly inspired bit of trolling, "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm", the sequel to Sacha Baron Cohen's "Borat", launched just before the start of the final Donald Trump-Joe Biden presidential debate on Thursday evening.
