Sacha Baron Cohen teases his next project

Sacha Baron Cohen, go to school! "Sacha graduates." A logo for Trump's sham educational program Trump University (for which the President settled a $25 million dollar class action lawsuit) is then shown. It aired on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom before being picked up by HBO in the U.S. The irreverent comedy show introduced several characters that were spun off into their own movies, Ali G, Borat and Brüno.

It is unclear whether Baron Cohen's Wednesday video is a teaser for a new project or simply a Fourth of July-themed troll from the comedian. "He ought to be fired immediately".

Cohen's announcement was posted on Twitter on July 4th as an Independence Day themed post, which seemed like the flawless moment to announce something like this. The two had a run-in on Cohen's "Da Ali G Show", which ran from 2000-2004. "Learn about being amusing", Trump slammed.

Prolific tweeter Trump later boated online about never being hoodwinked, tweeting: "I never fall for scams. You don't know shit", Trump continues. In fact, Cohen later explained, Trump actually didn't catch on to the joke for seven whole minutes.

Cohen has not yet commented further on the video. Text in the video said, "He's back as you've never seen him before". In the classic scene, Ali G tries to sell the surly businessman on the idea of "ice cream gloves" - an incident that Trump denies he was fooled by, though the clip suggests otherwise. While Cohen hasn't explicitly said anything about his willingness to cooperate, Trump has shown some distance from Cohen, specifying last month that Cohen was no longer his personal attorney.

Sacha Baron Cohen is reportedly in talks with Showtime for a new comedy interview series.

Cohen, who worked for Trump over the past decade, is the focus of an investigation into whether he violated campaign-finance laws or committed bank fraud, wire fraud, illegal lobbying, or other crimes.

Cohen also gave Trump (and Daniel Radcliffe) AIDS in an admittedly pretty low-brow gag in the movie The Brothers Grimsby, with Sony, the movie's producers insisting on a disclaimer at the end of the film.
