Sacha Baron Cohen responds to Rudy Giuliani's 'Borat 2' statement

Aboard Air Force One on Friday, a clearly agitated Donald Trump told reporters of Mr Cohen, "I don't find him amusing".

Before the new Borat film's release, word of Baron Cohen's latest outrageous ambushes on unsuspecting participants had spread like wildfire.

When asked about Giulani's claims, he said: "Well I would say that if the President's lawyer found what he did there appropriate behavior, then heaven knows what he's done with other female journalists in hotel rooms".

Sacha Baron Cohen played the iconic character of Borat in the new film, "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm", which features a controversial clip with Trump aide Rudy Giuliani.

If Cohen was a right-wing lunatic and his Borat character had instead hailed the President and his cronies, Trump would have unashamedly been calling him funnier than Charlie Chaplin.

"You know, years ago, he tried to scam me", Trump said. "To me, he was a creep".

"And I was the only one that said: 'No way". As his famous Ali G character, he had Trump on and pitched him an outrageous business idea for a glove that prevents an ice cream cone from dripping on one's hand.

Giuliani responded via Twitter, calling the video a "complete fabrication" and writing "If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar".

"I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment", Giuliani said.

"I warn you anyone else try this and Rudolph will not hesitate to reach into his legal briefs and whip out his subpoenas. At no time prior to, during, or after the interview was I ever improper", Giuliani tweeted.

Giuliani has continued his bogus investigation of Hunter Biden's laptop in an effort to smear the Joe Biden.

In a video posted on social media, Borat leapt to his own defense and accused the "fake news media" - a term often used by Trump and his supporters - of turning an "innocent" encounter into "something disgusting".
