US President Donald Trump said he wasn’t a fan of Sacha Baron Cohen, even before the clip in the British comedian’s new Borat film awkwardly explained his lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
“I don’t know what happened,” Trump spoke to reporters aboard Air Force One when asked about a video of Giuliani showing a fake “interview” with an attractive and cheerful young woman.
“But a few years ago he tried to trick me. And I didn’t say it alone. It’s a fake one. And I don’t think he’s funny.”
Trump said the incident took place about 15 years ago. That said, it’s likely that the wannabe gangster mentioned his 2003 interview with Baron Cohen while playing Ali G, a special glove that eats ice cream, his latest business venture.
“To me, he was terrible,” Trump said.
While the plot of the new Borat movie was hidden, rumors of the recent fierce ambush of Baron Cohen’s unsuspecting participant spread like wildfire.
On Wednesday, Giuliani denied being frustrated by a fake hotel room “interview” with a young woman.
The encounter in the movie seems to have put his hands on his pants in the bedroom, putting the 76-year-old former New York mayor in a very uncompromising situation.
Giuliani said the site on Wednesday was “perfect production.”
“I took off my recording equipment and wore a shirt. Before, during or after the interview, I wasn’t inappropriate,” he tweeted.
“If Sacha Baron Cohen hints otherwise, he is a cold liar.”
Trump made a remark after taking off on his way to West Palm Beach from Pensacola, Florida.
Republican President, former reality TV star and real estate tycoon launched an intense final reelection last Friday in Florida.
Public opinion polls show that he is far behind Democratic contender Joe Biden ahead of the November 3rd presidential election.
