Rudy Giuliani Pulls A Toobin In The New ‘Borat’ Movie
This article contains spoilers for the new movie Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, and they’re going to spoil your appetite. Sacha Baron Cohen’s new mockumentary will be released on Amazon Prime this Friday, but has already been released for film critics. And The Guardian reports that Cohen successfully pranks Rudy Giuliani in the film, and that Giuliani “is seen reaching into his trousers and apparently touching his genitals while reclining on a bed in the presence of the actor playing Borat’s daughter.
The premise of Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, a sequel to the 2006 movie Borat, is made clear in the film’s tagline: “Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.” Essentially, Borat and his new sidekick daughter attempt to bribe their way up to Donald Trump himself. Borat’s “daughter” poses as a right-wing journalist, and Giuliani apparently falls for it, going to her hotel room for a drink and thinking he’s going to get some action.

According to The Guardian, “Even before he reaches into his trousers, Giuliani does not appear to acquit himself especially impressively during the encounter. Flattered and flirtatious, he drinks scotch, coughs, fails to socially distance and claims Trump’s speedy actions in the spring saved a million Americans from dying of Covid. He also agrees – in theory at least – to eat a bat with his interviewer.”
I’ve seen the Giuliani moment in Borat 2. It’s even wilder than it sounds. Beyond cringe.

The incident took place this summer, and the New York Post’s grotesque Page Six reported at the time that Giuliani called the police after the prank. So this definitely did happen, we just didn’t know that Rudy tried to rub one out, and was filmed doing so.
Giuliani previously disclosed his run-in with Borat over the summer, but he failed to mention the part about him seducing an underage girl: "I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn't get me." https://t.co/DUKhkPa9uV pic.twitter.com/lIs5xg3Th2

But no actual hanky panky takes place in the scene. According to The Guardian, Borat interrupts them by bursting into the room and yelling, “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan will be available for streaming on Amazon Prime on Friday, October 23.
