Drake says Sacha Baron Cohen is a genius madman

For Cohen's part, he responded to Giuliani's claims as Borat, saying in a video, "What was an innocent sexy-time encounter with a consenting man and my 15-year-old daughter has been turned into something disgusting by fake news media".

Drake was among millions of people who praised Sacha Baron Cohen for his new "Borat" film. The situation was so weird that Rudy filed a police report about the incident in July - eventually realizing he was pranked.

"This guy [Cohen] comes running in wearing a insane, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit", the former NY mayor told Page Six in July. "If you're a woman and you don't vote against this guy, then know what you're doing for your gender". "I here to defend America's mayor Rudolph Giuliani", Sacha-as-Borat says in the October 22 video, which is clearly a joke. "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", he said.

Well, it really wouldn't be a Sacha Baron Cohen if it didn't strongly split opinions, would it? The "statement" - which is done in character as Borat - comes after the former NYC mayor fell for a prank that appears in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. And it seems to put the attorney in a questionable position.

In the surprise sequel to the 2006 hit, an actress playing Borat's daughter poses as a television journalist and interviews Giuliani at a hotel about the administration's coronavirus response.

CDC report: 300K more deaths than average so far this year
According to the CDC, the number of cases in the country are on an upswing with 70% of health districts experiencing an increase. Experts are concerned that the United States is nearing rapid acceleration of COVID-19 cases into a critical fall and winter.

According to reports from early screenings of the film, which will be released on Amazon on Friday, Giuliani is shown in a room with the woman after being interviewed by her, on a bed tucking in his shirt with his hand in his trousers. He then lies down on the bed and puts his hands down his trousers again, this time in a less appropriate manner.

Giuliani also felt the need to explain that, despite the way Cohen was dressed, he was definitely not attracted to him. And he suggested the scene was more about the election than anything else.

"The Borat video is a complete fabrication", Giuliani said.

Meanwhile, in a more critical review that labels the film as, "an amusingly harebrained scheme", Devika Girish of The New York Times points out an issue that Baron Cohen himself has discussed: his own recognizability. And then, an embarrassing video of Giuliani came out courtesy of Sacha Baron Cohen.

So, to recap: You can either watch the debate that had to add a mute button to keep Trump from constantly interrupting and talking over Biden, or you can watch "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm".
