Donald Trump will probably not see Sacha Baron Cohen in the cinema. The US president said on Friday that he had never appreciated the gags of the comedian, creator of the fictional character of Borat, who trapped his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani in his new film.
Asked aboard the Air Force One presidential plane about a clip from the film, which shows Rudy Giuliani in a seemingly embarrassing situation with a very attractive young woman, Donald Trump replied, “I don’t know what happened. “. “But years ago he tried to trick me. And I was the only one to say No way. He’s a weird guy. And I don’t find it funny ”.
The British comedian and director, who plays the character of Borat, a fictitious and wacky Kazakh journalist, has specialized with his team in sequences where he traps political figures, particularly supporters of Donald Trump.
“I put my shirt back in my pants”
On Wednesday, Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York and lawyer for Donald Trump, protested against the broadcast of the clip, a scene where he was the victim of a false “interview” organized in a hotel room in the presence of a young woman. The scene gives the impression that Giuliani is seized in a compromising position as he is seen with his hands in his pants, lying on a bed.
But the lawyer said the scene was “a complete fabrication”. “I was putting my shirt back in my pants after removing the recording equipment,” he said on Twitter. “At no time before, during or after the interview have I behaved inappropriately. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies the opposite, he is shamelessly lying, ”he added.
Donald Trump was questioned about the case after Air Force One had taken off from Pensacola (Florida) towards West Palm Beach.
He spoke of an incident he himself had with Sacha Baron Cohen about fifteen years ago. In 2003, Donald Trump was interviewed by the comedian who claimed to be Ali G, a gangster who presented his latest project, special gloves for eating ice cream. “To me, he was a bad guy,” Trump commented.
