Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, fell for an embarrassingly true Baron Cohen Prank in the soon-to-be-released film sequel “Borat”.
In the film, a copy of which was found by NBC News, Giuliani and a reporter posing as a reporter, part of Cohen’s sting, can be seen going to the hotel bedroom for a drink – at the woman’s invitation – After completing what former Mayor of New York City Giuliani apparently considered an actual interview about the coronovirus epidemic and Trump’s reaction.
The incident occurred as Giuliani, 76, was trying to remove her microphone, with the help of the actress, who was used as part of the film’s “interview” with her.
The film, released Friday on Amazon Prime Video, shows Giuliani lying on a bed and then putting her hand under her pants and moving her around for a few seconds, while actress Borat’s teenager daughter Maria Allalova The role of 24 is in front of him, pretending to be a television reporter.
NBC News received an advance copy of the film, titled “Borat Subarendum Movefilm: Delivery of Productive Bribes to US Governance for Delivery Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.”

Giuliani and the woman, recorded by what appears to be a hidden camera, are eventually interrupted by Cohen, who bursts into the bedroom in his Borat personality, shouting: “That’s 15. She’s too old for you!”
Giuliani quickly sits down and is shocked by the presence of Cohen, who wears a pink dress that resembles lingerie.
Giuliani asked her: “Why are you dressed like this?”
Cohen-e-Borat replied: “She is my daughter. Please, take me instead.”
“I don’t want you,” Giuliani replies. He then makes his way out of the hotel suite.
Giuliani, who had no reason to undermine the fictional interviewer’s faith in the context of the film, did not immediately respond to text messages.
In a tweet on Wednesday afternoon, Giuliani claimed without proof that the “Borat video is a complete production.”
Giuliani tweeted, “I was stuck in my shirt after unloading the recording equipment.” “There was no time before, during or after the interview, I was ever inappropriate. If the true Baron Cohen implies it is a stone lie.”
Beyond what is seen in the film, NBC News does not know what happened before or after the filmed incident.
The film also depicts a scene in which Bacalova asks Gulliani about the coronovirus epidemic. He responds that China built “Kovid-19” and “deliberately spread it all over the world.”
“I don’t think anyone was eating bats,” he jokingly asks her before if he ever ate a bat. He appears to agree to eat one if he will.
Prank is one of the most notable moments in the “Borat” sequel, including a scene in which Cohen crashes a Conservative Political Action conference wearing a full-body Trump costume.
Giuliani’s appearance in the film was revealed in the New York Post this summer. In early July, Giuliani said he phoned the New York City Police Department after the setup.
“This man comes running around wearing a maniac, which I would say was a pink transgender costume,” Giuliani was quoted as referring to Cohen.
“This person comes screaming and screaming, and I thought it must be a scam or a scuffle, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away,” he said, admitting he didn’t know immediately. Was that Cohen realized. Behind the stunt.
Giuliani said, “I later found out that this would have been the true Baron Cohen. I thought of all the people he had fooled before and I felt good about myself.”
