US President Donald Trump said on Friday that he was not a fan of Sasha Baron Cohen – even before a clip from the British comedian Borat’s new film forced his lawyer Rudy Giuliani to make an awkward explanation.
Asked about the video – which shows Giuliani in a fake “interview” with an attractive and flirtatious young woman – while speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One, Trump said “I don’t know what happened.”
“But years ago, you know, he tried to deceive me. And I was the only one who said nothing. This is a fake man. And I don’t find it funny. “
Trump said the incident happened about 1
“He was creepy to me,” Trump said.
While the plot of the new film about Borat is a mystery, the news of Baron Cohen’s latest scandalous ambushes spread like wildfire to unsuspecting participants.
On Wednesday, Giuliani issued an angry refusal after being tricked into a fake hotel room “interviewing” a young woman.
In the film, the meeting seems to leave the 76-year-old former mayor of New York in a highly compromising situation, holding his hands down his pants in the bedroom.
Giuliani said on Wednesday that the scene was a “complete fabrication”.
“I put my shirt away after I took off the recording equipment. At no point before, during or after the interview have I ever been inappropriate, “he tweeted.
“If Sacha Baron Cohen hints otherwise, he is a cold stone liar.”
Trump made the comments after taking off from Pensacola, Florida on his way to West Palm Beach.
The Republican president, former reality TV star and real estate mogul has launched an intense last-day re-election campaign in Florida.
Polls suggest he is lagging behind Democratic contender Joe Biden ahead of the November 3rd presidential election.
