The President of the United States, Donald Trump, says he thinks Sacha Baron Cohen, the comedian behind the films “Borat”, “a worm”.
Baron Cohen’s new film, “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” shows Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani in a compromising position in a hotel room with a young woman acting as a journalist.
Baron Cohen joined “Good Morning America” to promote the film on Friday and addressed “that” scene.
The scene from Baron Cohen’s new film shows Giuliani on a bed, tucking his shirt in his pants after the woman helps him remove the recording equipment. Giuliani called the scene “a successful job” and said he realized he was being armed.
The comedian urged people to see for themselves and decided whether Giuliani’s strong denial that something inappropriate happened was true or not.
Baron Cohen added that it was “quite clear” what happened, saying: “I would say that if the president’s lawyer found out what made him behave appropriately, then God knows what he did to other journalists in hotel rooms” .
Baron Cohen concluded, “It is what it is. He did what he did.”
Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on Friday night that he did not know what happened to Giuliani.
“But, you know, years ago he tried to trick me,” Trump said of Baron Cohen. “And I was the only one who said, ‘No way. This guy is a fake guy. ‘”
“I don’t think he’s funny,” said Trump, adding, “To me, he’s a scoundrel.”
Trump briefly appeared on HBO’s “Da Ali G Show” in 2003, but left an interview with Baron Cohen’s Ali G character after just a minute.
