Trump's personal lawyer is seen reaching into his pants while alone in a hotel room with the actress playing Borat's daughter.
There is at least one person not looking forward to the release of the Borat sequel on Friday.
Rudy Giuliani found himself the unwitting and unwilling star of Sacha Baron Cohen's "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" after early reviews highlighted a scene in which the former NY Mayor ended up in a very compromising situation with the actress playing Borat's daughter Tutar.
The sequence sees the President's personal lawyer being interviewed by Tutar, who is pretending to be a TV reporter for a fake conservative news program. She then suggests a drink back at her hotel room — which is rigged with hidden cameras.
According to a review by The Guardian: "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."
The pair are then interrupted by Borat who bursts in and shouts: "She's 15. She's too old for you."
It should be noted that Borat only announces his "daughter" is 15 after he interrupts the thrice-divorced Giuliani; the actress who plays Tutar — Maria Bakalova — is actually 24.
The incident first came to light in July when Giuliani admitted he called the police — but only to report an intrusion by a man "wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit", not mentioning the interaction with the female; in fact he congratulated himself for not getting fooled by who he later realized was Cohen.
But according to Twitter on Wednesday, Giuliani has every reason to be mortified:
Well, looks like the cat’s out of the pants. Having seen #Borat2 I can now safely tell you #RudyGiuliani is over in a very big way. It’s worse than you think and more uncomfortable than anything I’ve seen in a recent film, documentary or otherwise.
They always do what they accuse others of doing. Look at Rudy Giuliani. In fact, google Rudy Giuliani and Borat, right now, and it explains a lot of his bizarre accusations lately. https://t.co/1VLLaJlX7V
Rudy Giuliani has spent the last week teasing multimedia of Hunter Biden doing something sexually nefarious on a hacked laptop. He's had this allegedly criminal evidence for a year. He's produced nothing.
That same thing, featuring himself, will be on Amazon Prime on Friday.
Speaking to New York's WABC Radio on Wednesday, Giuliani claimed the whole incident was a hit job, and that the photo "which looks doctored" was of him merely tucking his shirt in, after it got dislodged while removing the radio equipment.
He claimed many people in Hollywood — where he is hated — had seen the film over the summer, but had said nothing, and only were now in retaliation for his attacks on Joe and Hunter Biden:
He later tweeted the video was "a complete fabrication", declaring that if Cohen implied he was ever being inappropriate he was "a stone-cold liar."
(1) The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment.
At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar.
Indeed, the day before news of the 76-year-old's painfully awkward scene emerged, he gave an interview to Newsmax claiming to have seen texts written by Hunter in which he allegedly admitted FaceTiming naked with a 14-year-old.
Giuliani has been at the center of the "Hunter laptop" scandal, in which he claims to have been sent a laptop left at a repair shop by the Vice-President's son with all sorts of compromising information, including, he claimed on Tuesday night, a conversation between Hunter and his late brother's widow:
