Sacha Baron Cohen hit back at Donald Trump in response to the president s criticism of Borat 2 . The comedian reacted to Trump s comments calling Cohen a phony and a creep, adding "I don t find him funny."
"Donald—I appreciate the free publicity for Borat! I admit, I don’t find you funny either," Cohen tweeted. "But yet the whole world laughs at you. I’m always looking for people to play racist buffoons, and you’ll need a job after Jan. 20. Let’s talk!"
In the mostly surprise sequel to the 2006 mockumentary Borat, the Amazon Video release shows journalist Borat Sagdiyev s big return to the United States with his teenage daughter Tutar (Maria Bakalova) in tow. Borat intends to gift Tutar to Mike Pence, though he decides Rudy Giuliani would be better suited after things go awry with the vice president.
Borat 2 was partially filmed during the pandemic which originally caused confusion as to what Cohen was shooting. The actor was spotted at a conservative rally at the end of June singing a racist song to a cheering audience. It was originally believed he was shooting a new season of his political satire series, Who is America .
