After Sacha Baron Cohen infiltrated a pro-gun rally a few weeks ago, we figured it was only a matter of time before another stunt came to light.
Well last night, Page Six reported that Rudy Giuliani is Cohen’s latest target. According to Giuliani, he went to the Mark Hotel in New York for what he thought was a serious interview about how the administration had handled COVID-19. After he answered some preliminary questions with a female interviewer, that’s when things started to get weird.
“This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit. It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn’t what I would call distractingly attractive. […] This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away.”
Cohen reportedly ran out of the hotel, wearing just a bathrobe. But the police, who eventually did arrive to investigate, did not apprehend him.
“I only later realized it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn’t get me.” Giuliani did add, however, that he is a fan of Borat.
There is no doubt in our minds, after now having two reports in the last few weeks, that Cohen is most-likely filming more episodes of Who is America?, a Showtime series that saw him conducting similar interviews with unsuspecting politicians. And while it is odd that he would choose right now in a pandemic to do this, given the political divide that is running throughout our country, it also seems somewhat fitting.
