Sacha Baron Cohen trolls Donald Trump with open letter
Sacha Baron Cohen has taken his Twitter wars with Trump one step further and written an open letter to him signed in his character's name.
Sacha Baron Cohen is using all the star power he can in his war of words with Donald Trump and that includes resurrecting his famous character - Ali G. He also tweeted a clip from 2003 when he as Ali G had interviewed Trump in 2003 to talk 'business' with the real estate tycoon.
He was trying to pitch an idea for a business based on making ice cream gloves which prevented one's hands from getting sticky. Trump was clearly unaware that this sales pitch was a prank and he was quite annoyed, walking out of the interview minutes after it had begun. As a result, you now have Trump's famous tweet from 2012 which reads: "I never fall for scams. I am the only person who immediately walked out of my 'Ali G' interview'. Cohen, then in an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden in 2016, gave his reply stating: “I was the first person to realize he was a d**k."
And now Cohen has taken his Twitter wars with Trump one step further and written an open letter to him signed in his character's name. The letter comes a day after the president's former longtime lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to allowing Trump to direct him to break laws to secure his own candidacy. The lawyer said that at Trump's orders he paid hush money to former Playboy model Karen McDougal and pornstar Stormy Daniels so that they would not hurt his election run.
In the letter, Cohen addressed to 'Ronald Trump', he refers to this payout and Trump's alleged affairs with the two women. “Yesterday it was proven in de courts dat u iz a crook ― respeck! U is a genuine gangsta!” Cohen wrote, along with mocking praise for “bonin all dem pornstars”.
“Why iz u payin dem money to keep quiet about it?” he continued. “We know it aint coz u haz got a tiny dong, u told everyone it woz massive on da telly, and one fing u ain’t, is a liar.”
Ali G ended the letter by saying that Trump was an 'inspiration' for "showing dem u can become President of America without having to give up a life of crime."
The comic actor's proclivity for pulling pranks and fooling celebrities including Trump is well known. His tweets off late have made headlines. In fact, also making headlines is his latest show 'Who is America?'. This seven-episode half-hour series features generous amounts of satire in the realm of politics and entertainment. Already the show has had politicians squirming in their seats, especially those who have been unwittingly duped by the master impersonator. 'Who is America' wraps up its first season by this weekend and if Ali G is in the house, who is to say the series finale could even be Trump-themed.
