Borat's 'Daughter' Somehow Got Into the White House Press Room

Former New York City Mayor Giuliani tweeted that he was "tucking in [his] shirt".

Sacha Baron Cohen defended his latest movie's most infamous scene in an appearance on Good Morning America Friday, scoffing at Rudy Giuliani's claims of innocence, saying, "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". Bakalova had posed as a conservative TV journalist who interviews Giuliani and invites him to her hotel room, where there were several hidden cameras from the "Borat" film crew.

The scene, shot in a NY hotel room in July, includes a moment when Giuliani, 76, is lying on a bed and has his hand in his trousers.

"I just urge everyone to watch the movie". "It is what it is". "And make your own mind up...it was pretty clear to us".


In a radio interview this week, Giuliani called the scene "a hit job" to distract from next month's presidential election, further insisting on Twitter that he was tucking his shirt into his trousers after taking off recording equipment for the interview.

Baron Cohen, who enters the scene in an outlandish outfit while Mr Giuliani is lying on the bed, said he had been concerned for his co-star, Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova. "I never felt that I was in danger, that's why I am lucky", she said.

Borat, of course, is Sacha Baron Cohen's fictional Kazakh alter ego promoting the sequel to his 2006 hit Borat: American Cultural Insights for a Glorious Nation in Kazakhstan.

"But it's my responsibility as a producer as well to ensure that the lead actor is looked after".


Actor Sacha Baron Cohen's prank on U.S. Vice President Mike Pence for his new "Borat" movie was nearly derailed by security officials after his fat suit set off the metal detector.

Giuliani's statement regarding the footage read: "The Borat video is a complete fabrication".

Borat then goes on to explain that the encounter - part of which was secretly shot for the film - "is being turned into something gross by fake news media". On her Instagram webpage, we could observe that she moved into Los Angeles, she is a musician plays the flute, and she is an animal enthusiast.
