‘Borat’ cameras captured Giuliani in hotel bedroom scene: reports

The forthcoming “Borat” sequel reportedly features Rudy Giuliani engaging in provocative behavior with a woman he’d been told was a reporter.

The adviser to President Trump appears to have unknowingly participated in “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” the comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen that is poised to be released Friday on Amazon Prime Video.

According to multiple reports, Giuliani sits down for an interview at a New York hotel with the character Tutar, Borat’s teenage daughter who’s posing as a TV journalist and was played by 24-year-old actress Maria Bakalova.

The 76-year-old former New York mayor is heard complimenting the supposed reporter and following her to a bedroom, where eventually he stretches out on the bed.

Vanity Fair describes the scene captured on hidden cameras, saying of Giuliani, “His hand is in his pants. Watching it, your brain turns into an exclamation point.”

Cohen, as Borat, then reportedly runs into the hotel room sporting a bikini and exclaiming, “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”

Giuliani did not respond to The Hill’s request for comment.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday afternoon, he said that “the Borat video is a complete fabrication” intended to “to blunt my relentless exposure of the criminality and depravity of Joe Biden and his entire family”

He told the New York Post in July that he had agreed to participate in what he believed was an interview about the Trump administration’s COVID-19 response.

“This person comes in yelling and screaming,” Giuliani said of Cohen, “and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away.”

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

Giuliani isn’t the only high-profile figure in Trump’s orbit to appear in the sequel to Cohen’s 2006 “mockumentary.” In a trailer for the movie, Baron Cohen is seen wearing an elaborate Trump disguise and storming into the Conservative Political Action Conference as Vice President Pence is speaking.

“Michael Pennis,” Baron Cohen says while holding his co-star over his shoulder, “I brought a girl for you.”
