Donald Trump’s personal attorney and ex-New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani’s reputation could be set for a further blow with the release of highly embarrassing footage in Sacha Baron Cohen’s follow-up to Borat
In “Borat – Subsequent Movie film”, released on Friday, Giuliani is seen reaching into his trousers and apparently touching his genitals while reclining on a bed in the presence of the actor playing Borat’s daughter, who is posing as a TV journalist.
Following an interview where actress Maria Bakalova, who plays his daughter, Tutar suggests they both unwind after the interview with a drink in her bedroom.
After she removes his microphone, Giuliani, 76, can be seen lying back on the bed, fiddling with his untucked shirt and reaching into his trousers. They are then interrupted by Borat who runs in and says: “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”
The film also sees Sacha Baron Cohen interrupt a conference held by Mike Pence, as Baron Cohen wearing a Donald Trump face mask as Borat carries ng his daughter as an offering to make ‘good relations between Kazakhstan and the US, and salvage his reputation in Kazakhstan.
Mr Giuliani responded to the claim and said he not inappropriate and was tucking his shirt in due to the ‘microphone’ he was carrying for the interview.
“I had to take off the electronic equipment,” Giuliani told WABC. “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. I leaned back, and I tucked my shirt in, and at that point, at that point, they have this picture they take which looks doctored, but in any event, I’m tucking my shirt in. I assure you that’s all I was doing.”
Mr Giuliani contacted the New York City police to notify them of an unknown man in the building (Baron Cohen) unaware of the prank taking place.
Giuliani continued: “I only later realised it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn’t get me.”
