In one scene of the film, which officially premieres Friday on Amazon Prime, the former New York City mayor is seen touching himself in the presence of a woman who’s posing as a conservative reporter.
The woman is Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova, 24, who in the movie portrays Borat’s teenage daughter.
The scene ends when star Sacha Baron Cohen, playing Borat, bursts into the room and says, “She’s 15, she’s too old for you!”
Yes, we know: Pictures or it didn’t happen.
Here’s Rudy Giuliani, the personal attorney to the President of the United States.

Sharing this from @TeaPainUSA but not the tweet because folks don't need to have the pic repeated: "Sweet Mary, Joseph and Jesus! If a comedian can compromise @RudyGiuliani
, imagine what a seasoned Russian intelligence agent can do." < THIS IS THE HEART OF IT

Really, Rudy Giuliani getting tricked by Borat is the *least* surprising development of 2020, if you think about it.

Didn't think the reason I'd be excited about a new fall movie would be because of @RudyGiuliani touching himself but well, here I am.

Some imagined the conversations going on right now in the Trump camp.
“And now, here’s how we make this look like it’s Hunter’s laptop.”

Some drew comparisons between Giuliani and CNN legal affairs analyst and New Yorker staff writer Jeffrey Toobin, who was suspended on Monday for exposing himself during a Zoom meeting.

Jeffrey Toobin, Giuliani, who's next? Doesn't jerking off in front of people who never wanted to see that always happen in three's?

“This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit,” Giuliani said at the time. “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.”
