'Borat Subsequent Moviefilm': Why did Rudy Giuliani slide his hands into his pants in Sacha Baron Cohen's film?
'Borat Subsequent Moviefilm'

'Borat' which was released in 2006 was a big controversial statement in itself, but this time, it is even bigger, as one scene from Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest mockumentary 'Borat Subsequent Moviefilm' shows the former mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani in a compromising position in a hotel room with a young woman acting as a TV journalist. 

The scene that was shot in a New York hotel room in July, this year resulted in Giuliani calling the police. It includes a moment where he can be seen lying on the bed just after touching the young journalist's waist. Later, he puts his hand inside his pants in order to tuck in his shirt.

Giuliani went to the hotel room with the idea that he was being interviewed about the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and its take on China. The young woman, Maria Sagdiyev, who plays the character of Tutar Sagdiyev, Cohen's 15-year-old daughter, in the film is seen disguised as a journalist. She gets flirtatious with Giuliani and invites him to the bedroom, which is rigged with hidden cameras. Giuliani then asks for her contact details and her address before he tries to remove his recording equipment, after which he sneaks his hand inside his pants. Soon thereafter, Cohen rushes in wearing an outlandish outfit and offers him to have sex with him instead of his daughter. An outraged Giuliani leaves the room with anger and alerts his security guards.

“This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit,” Giuliani told Page Six. “It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn’t what I would call distractingly attractive. “This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shakedown, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away,” Giuliani said. The police found no crime had been committed.

Giuliani continued: “I only later realized it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn’t get me.”

Speaking on his weekly radio program on WABC on Wednesday, October 21 afternoon, Giuliani called the scene “a hit job.” “I am tucking my shirt in, I assure you, that’s all that I was doing,” he said. He said he realized he was being set up when the woman asked whether he wanted a massage. 

"(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," he tweeted. "(2) In fact, the NY Post today reports "it looks to me like an exaggeration through editing." As soon as I realized it was a set up I called the police, which has been noted in THR article on July 8th," he further tweeted.




He further tweeted, "(3) This is an effort to blunt my relentless exposure of the criminality and depravity of Joe Biden and his entire family. Deadline Hollywood reports CAA had a distribution screening in September where there was no mention of the scene holding any importance," and "(4) We are preparing much bigger dumps off of the hard drive from hell, of which Joe Biden will be unable to defend or hide from. I have the receipts."
