Media bombshells don't seem to slow down in the US, especially as the main two political parties enter an extremely tense battle in presidential elections in less than two weeks.
The latest has been a scene from a Borat film produced by the English well-known actor Sacha Baron-Cohen disguised in his Borat character involving Donald Trump's personal attorney; Rudy Giuliani.
In the leaked scene of the encounter, that was shot in July 2020 and will be featured in Baron-Cohen's new mockumentary, which should be playing soon on Amazon Prime starting from Friday the 23th of October, Guiliani was interviewed by a mock-conservative TV show.
I was literally falling asleep at work when this all popped off & woke me up! I guess I gotta thank Guliani for saving my career! ??????? pic.twitter.com/jTbiv0iIUg— Ⓜ️?️? Opinions ? (@MavsOpinions) October 21, 2020

After what the former mayor of New York City thought was the interview, he accompanied the actress, who played the journalist's role to a bedroom in the hotel they were shooting at and was seen with hands down his pants with her in the room before Borat burst into the room screaming: "She 15, she's too old for you."
Responding to the photos that quickly flooded social media, many social media users argued that this could "Borat's most successful episodes already," as he is used to orchestrating similar traps for politicians in the US and other countries.
So Borat outed Rudy Guliani as a pedophile ?— S-Rank Himbo (@mistressminako) October 21, 2020
Hi QAnon, I found the creep you were looking for. His name is Rudy Guliani. Q told me you should arrest him.— Anita ? (@AnitaM86) October 21, 2020
Some commentators also took the chance to attack Trump's personal attorney, saying that he is "a pedophile that should be abandoned by the QAnon audience that attacked Hunter Biden for allegedly having child pornography on his laptop."
Even though this video was taken last July, the timing of singling it out on social media briefly before Baron-Cohen's new film suggests that supporters of the Democratic nominee may have seized the moment to make a strong come back at the Trump camp and to distract the public from the allegations Hunter Biden has been facing widely pushed by Rudy Guiliani himself.
(1) The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment.— Rudy W. Giuliani (@RudyGiuliani) October 21, 2020
At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar.
In his response, Trump's personal attorney tweeted a strong denial of all interpretations of the video, saying that he was merely "tucking in his shirt after taking off the recording equipment" used in the interview.
