Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, fell for an embarrassing Sacha Baron Cohen prank in the soon-to-be-released movie sequel to “Borat.”
In the film, a copy of which was obtained by NBC News, Giuliani and a fictional young female reporter, who was part of Cohen’s sting, can be seen going into a hotel bedroom for drinks — at the woman’s invitation — after completing what the former New York City mayor apparently believed to be a real interview about the coronavirus pandemic and Trump’s response to the crisis.
The incident occurred as Giuliani, 76, was attempting to remove his microphone, with the help of the actress, that had been used as part of the movie’s “interview” with him.
The film, which is being released Friday on Amazon Prime Video, shows Giuliani reclining on a bed and then putting his hand down his pants and moving it around for what appears to be a few seconds while the 24-year-old actress playing Borat’s teenage daughter, who is pretending to be a television reporter, stands in front of him.
NBC News obtained an advance copy of the film, which is titled “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.”
Giuliani and the woman, recorded by what seem to be hidden cameras, are eventually interrupted by Cohen, who bursts into the bedroom in his Borat persona, shouting: “She’s 15. She’s too old for you!”
Giuliani quickly sits up and appears startled by the presence of Cohen, who wears a pink outfit that resembles lingerie.
The former mayor asks him: “Why are you dressed like this?”
Cohen-as-Borat responds: “She’s my daughter. Please, take me instead.”
