I want to announce that I will be unavailable for blogging on the 23rd of October. That is typically cause for celebration and great rejoicing. Why am I unavailable, you ask? Wait, what? You didn’t ask? You don’t care? Regardless, I will be busy on the 23rd. I will be occupied watching this over and over again …
That’s right, the sequel to Borat hits Amazon Prime on the 23rd. The reviews are in and generally positive. And you may have heard some news yesterday about this co-star in the movie.
That’s Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, with his hand down his pants on a bed in a scene with a young woman in the movie. Uh-oh. Sasha Baron Cohen as Borat saves Rudy by bursting into the room and proclaiming, “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”
Sasha Baron Cohen is a national treasure, both for his native UK and the USA. As for Borat’s beloved Kazakhstan and Trump’s perverted vision of the USA, maybe not so much.
