Borat Defends Rudy Giuliani's Behavior In Borat 2

Just another totally normal news day in 2020.

9 Comments

For a movie that was announced less than a month ago and only officially out now, it sure feels like we've been hearing a ton about Borat 2. This past week, that's been in no small part from presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who despite not appearing in a trailer has been an outspoken Borat prank victim turned ersatz Twitter marketer who has tried to get ahead of whatever he did in the movie by warning he didn't do anything wrong.

For those who would prefer to still avoid spoilers, it's probably better to just state what word was spreading before the film's release: vague details that Giuliani apparently was caught literally pulling his pants down in a hotel room and also possibly eating a bat? Just to make 2020 a little weirder, Borat took to Twitter to rush to the former New York City mayor's defense, posting a short video, explaining, "What was an innocent sexytime encounter between a consenting man and my 15-year-old daughter have been turned into something disgusting by fake-news media."

Borat 2, a movie full of shocking moments, similarly surprised fans by releasing early--opposite the final presidential debates on October 22. The movie is best experienced going in fresh with minimal spoilers for the shocks to keep you reeling and cringing, but if you are just wondering whether it's any good at all, you can read our review and also check out the consensus among other critics here.

For Borat to return after 14 years away, it would be natural to assume the comedic actor behind the character, Sacha Baron Cohen, has a lot on his mind and also has a lot of reasons for bringing the character back. Earlier this month, Cohen penned an op-ed for Time laying out his concerns for democracy and the threat that conspiracy theories pose. It's a major theme in Borat 2, so worth a read either before or after you watch.

See? Would someone biased really go to these lengths to defend the guy he pranked? Just some harmless fun and if Rudy's a little embarrassed by the entire nation seeing him touch himself in front of someone he thought was 15, he'll get over it. We've all been caught wanking it at least once anyway....

@esqueejy: No evidence to suggest that Rudy thought she was 15. The woman in question is CLEARLY older than 15 years old (she was 24, mind you, when this happened.) The only time anyone said 15 was when THIS idiot (Borat) came running in yelling that she was 15. Rudy, confused and alarmed by the entire episode, immediately called the police. USUALLY, guys who are trying to nail underage girls, they don't call the police. They run from the police.

@bluestorm83: Relax...I was being sarcastic/facetious. Geez....

And yeah, I know, it seems the only thing Rudy got caught doing was being gross, but not necessarily a pedo. BUT, we're talking about someone who married his cousin and was probably in Epstein's black book haha. Him giving his meat a little tenderizing in the hotel room with a pretty young woman because he was dumb enough to think she was into him isn't exactly surprising. Dude's been riding the dementia flume to splashdown on national TV for the past couple years anyway.
