Rudy Giuliani appears in an uncompromising position in a hotel room with a young woman acting as a TV journalist in a scene in Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest mockumentary, a sequel to his hit “Borat” film.
The scene, which was shot in a hotel room in New York in July – which resulted in Giuliani calling the police – includes a moment where Giuliani is seen lying on a bed, hidden in his sweater with his hand down his trousers and the young woman nearby .
Giuliani went to the hotel room and thought he was being interviewed about the Trump administration’s COVID-19 response. The young woman is flirting with him and invites him to the bedroom, which is rigged with hidden cameras.
Giuliani then asks for his phone number and address. He lies back on the bed to tuck his shirt in after she helps remove his recording equipment, and he has his hands in his pants when Baron Cohen rushes to wear a strange outfit.
Baron Cohen, who was disguised as part of the crew, screams that the young woman is 15 years old. Until that time, there is no indication that she is a minor. The character, who is Borat’s daughter, is played by Maria Bakalova, who is listed as 24 years old on the Internet Movie Database site, IMDb.com.
Speaking on his weekly radio program on WABC Wednesday afternoon, Giuliani called the scene “a hit job.”
“I put my shirt in, I assure you, that was all I did,” he said. He said he realized he was being created when the woman asked if he wanted a massage.
“At no time before, during or after the interview was I ever inappropriate,” Giuliani tweeted. “If Sacha Baron Cohen suggests otherwise, he’s a stone-cold liar.”
The former mayor of New York called police after this meeting, but there is no evidence that an investigation was launched. Giuliani spoke to the New York Post’s Page Six column about the July meeting, but did not mention the bedroom aspect.
New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, who profiled Baron Cohen ahead of the film’s release, tweeted about the scene on Wednesday: “It’s even wilder than it sounds. Beyond cringe. ”
I’ve seen the Giuliani moment in Borat 2. It’s even wilder than it sounds. In addition to crawling.

Trolling those close to President Donald Trump is a central theme in the new “Borat” film, a sequel to the 2006 mockumentary that saw Baron Cohen’s character travel around the United States and support sexist, racist and anti-Semitic views. and elicited similar responses from ignorant topics.
For “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivering Creepy Bribery to US Regime for Benefit When the Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is”, Baron Cohen returns as his alter ego from Kazakhstan in a plot involving trying to give his daughter as a gift to Vice President Mike Pence.
The closest Borat comes is the audience at the Conservative political action conference, where he shouts to Pence that he has brought a woman to him. Dressed in a Donald Trump costume and with Borat’s daughter, played by Bakalova, slung over his shoulder, Baron Cohen is quickly accompanied by security.
This leads to another arrangement involving Giuliani that ends up in the hotel room.
Giuliani ended his divorce from his wife of 15 years in December.
Baron Cohen has created a story of fun on conservative figures. For his 2018 Showtime series “Who Is America”, British comedian got former Vice President Dick Cheney to sign a waterboard set. A sketch with former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore involved the comedian who administered a “pedophile test.” Moore has sued over the meeting.
