President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani was reportedly tricked by comedian Sasha Baron Cohen into having an “indiscreet encounter” with a young actress who played a far-right journalist in his new “Borat” movie.
The Guardian, which has seen footage from Cohen’s upcoming film ahead of its Friday release on Amazon Prime, reported that Giuliani is interviewed by Borat’s “daughter” Tutar, posing as a conservative reporter, who then brings him to a hotel room, where he reclines on a bed and seemingly puts his hand down his pants, only to be interrupted by Cohen’s Borat character.
“The former New York mayor and current personal attorney to Donald Trump 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,” the news outlet reports.
The actress who plays Tutar, 24-year-old Bulgarian native Maria Bakalova, posed as a right-wing journalist interested in interviewing Giuliani to ask him about his work for President Donald Trump.
According to The Guardian, Bakalova asked Giuliani to come to her hotel room for a drink after the interview for a fake conservative news program.
Unbeknownst to the former New York City mayor, Bakalova’s room has been rigged with cameras. 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 into the room yelling: “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”
Giuliani described the situation in July but neglected to mention he may have been caught in a compromising position.
“This guys comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say a pink transgender outfit,” Giuliani told Page Six at The New York Post. “It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had a beard, bare legs, and wasn’t waht I would call distractingly attractive.”
Giuliani didn’t recognize the man as Cohen right away.
“This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away,” he added.
The July 7 incident occurred at the Mark Hotel in New York City.
“I only later realized 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,” Giuliani said in July.
Giuliani’s spokeswoman Christianne Allen noted at the time that Cohen interrupted “an interview for a documentary on @realdonaldtrump’s leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The film arrives just as Giuliani finds himself in the middle of the Hunter Biden laptop saga.
