New Borat Video Mocks Rudy Giuliani With A 'Defense' That’s Definitely Not Gonna Help

Sacha Baron Cohen resurfaces with a video message on behalf of the former New York mayor.

Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor-turned-hatchet man for President Donald Trump, has an unlikely defender after the inauspicious debut of this week’s bizarre hotel room footage.

Actor Sacha Baron Cohen released a new video on Thursday night in which he, in character as Borat, explains Giuliani’s actions in the new film, “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” which was just released on Amazon. And he’s not exactly doing Giuliani any favors: 

The footage from the film’s hidden-camera prank shows Giuliani in bed, fully dressed, but reaching into his pants in front of actor Maria Bakalova, who he believed was a reporter. Borat crashes the scene to warn Giuliani that the woman is his 15-year-old daughter (Bakalova is 24 in real life). 

Giuliani insists he merely leaned back on the bed to tuck in his shirt after Bakalova helped to remove audio equipment.
