Seriously that picture is disgusting.

Trump no fan of Sacha Baron Cohen

Is anyone?.

-32 ( +13 / -45 )

Someone has to show these elitests for what they truly are, depraved self serving narcissistic scum bags. If it takes a comedian to do that don't blame the comic for the behavior of rich power hungry duch bags.

shogun good question! answer , no one with a brain

 We all know that it's called the bionic, the bomb, the puff, the blow, the black, the herb, the sensie, the chronic, the sweet Mary Jane, the sh!t, Ganja, split, reefa, the bad, the buddha, the home grown, the ill, the maui-maui, the method, pot, lethal turbo, tie, shake, skunk, stress, whacky, weed, glaze, the boot, dimebag, Scooby Doo, bob, bogey, back yard boogie. But what is the other terms for it?

Yeah I’m a huge fan.

Pure comedy genius!

Why would trump like Sacha Cohen? In "Borat 2", Sacha makes fools of trump, Rudy, Pence, trump supporters, and trump jr. in a deleted scene.

The whole idiot brigade is shown to be perverts, bigots, and fools. How much does anyone want to bet that trump tries to sue Sacha?

I mean Ivanka and Jared are already threatening to sue The Lincoln Project.

It’s excellent. LOL.

“How much?"

"$21,751”.

Trumps.

pure comedy genius , thats a good one ! or more like , because you choose a twenty years old preBorat example you obviously realize he isnt a genius.I suppose you can redeem yourself by telling us a few of your other favorite comedy geniuses .for me seinfeld and woody allen

-35 ( +2 / -37 )

Cohen is disgusting. The first Borat was disgusting and should have been arrested for attempting to kidnap Pamela Anderson. He and Howard Stern are both revolting and not funny at all.

-38 ( +7 / -45 )

Push them further Sacha. Cut right through their sensibilities and expose their prejudices. Top draw. Rudy is rude and needs talking to by the police. That was a long, “shirt tuck in”. HE is disgusting.

27 ( +33 / -6 )

P.S. Listen to what Pence says about C19. THAT didn’t age well.

24 ( +26 / -2 )

The left are the modern scribes and pharisees. Back in the 60's it was the church people who were the powerful sneering thugs, now the tables are turned and it's the left who are in power and can get away with snotty behavior like Sacha Baron Cohen. At least the church people gave us orphanages, hospitals, homeless shelters, etc. The left gives us nothing.

-28 ( +5 / -33 )

Stop the press! Notoriously thin-skinned, witless right-wing icon doesn’t like to be made fun of!

Well I never

You do know she was in on the gag, right? Apparently cost her her marriage, though.

In the wise old words of the joker 'Why so serious?'. If it's not your kind of humour, don't watch it.

I’ve seen the film. Rudy was a perv, no question.

these downvotes are clearly false! if they weren't there would be more comments citing reasons for liking this bigoted bonehead

-28 ( +2 / -30 )

"But years ago, you know, he tried to scam me. And I was the only one who said no way. That's a phony guy. And I don't find him funny."

I think Trump managed to avoid looking like too much of a fool after that one - he just came across as taciturn and boring.

Numan:

Hah! Good luck with that. While they're at it, they might want to sue the writers of Spitting Image:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKLuc461R3c

Fast forward to 9:02 and 19:56. Two brutal sketches.

Those interviewed before by SBC have only themselves to blame, due to their own stupidity, racism or evilness. Like The paedophile politician from Arkansas, the guy who thought showing your backside really deterred terrorists and the rednecks who really did think their town was going to turn into a Mecca for muslim tourists. Ironically, the only person to come out of SBC's tricks unscathed and with his credibility intact was Bernie Sanders.

True that when he makes people reveal themselves for who they are it is not funny, because these people are not funny in the least. That he brutally exposes their hypocrisy and hoists them on their own collective petard is priceless - kind of like what happens to Trump when he has to do inverviews with non-Fox media.

20 ( +21 / -1 )

This place is full of Trump loving right wingers defending the undependable to the end!

Personally, I like Sacha Baron Cohen.

22 ( +26 / -4 )

Cohen makes these far-right idiots look like the scum and con-men they are....

Rudy shouldn't worry about Cohen, he should worry about Barr....

President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is under investigation by federal prosecutors over possible campaign finance violations and accusations he failed to register as a foreign agent. Multiple U.S. officials told the outlet that the probe into Giuliani’s financial dealings could also lead to charges of violating bribery or conspiracy laws

This picture is truly amazing. Gave me the giggles. Wearing a mask is like covering and hiding your genitals. Its like another undergarment but for your mouth. lol

Seriously, that picture is really offensive and disgusting. How about editing THAT GARBAGE OUT!?

-22 ( +4 / -26 )

I am sure Trump's best friend Putin will give him a permanent residence in Russia, just like he did for Snowden. But then again knowing Putin, he will throw Trump under the bus... Then Sacha Baron Cohen can make another satirical movie about that moment in American history, can't wait!!!

Ali G was da bomb. For all those disgusted by the header picture, check out the pictures of Giuliani doing a stop and frisk of himself in bed and you can imagine the disgust of a large part of the public at the Republican establishment.

Yes, that photo of sacha is disturbing even to totally-gay gokai.....

-5 ( +4 / -9 )

Awesome job again by Cohen! The fact that he has upset conservatives yet again (they are so dumb and easily fooled and outraged) means the movie is already a huge success!

As for greaseball Giuliani, he is a sick individual. At his age too, dirty, amoral old man.

10 ( +11 / -1 )

I think people are taking it to seriously about him, it is a satire persona created to mock the system.

Take that photo down please.

-18 ( +1 / -19 )

@Reckless...Just don't look at it.

12 ( +13 / -1 )

Nobody stepping up to defend poor Rudy? Just shooting the messenger?

I thought salacious gossip was popular. Oh! Is this one of those media blackout things?

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Cohen is an excellent satirist. And while the right-wing and racists tend to make fairly easy targets of themselves, he also excellently satirised the American left-wing academic in his recent show 'This is America':

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrZHUZlfgqo

In this example, taking on a rap club in fairly hostile circumstances, while still keeping his wits about him and winning the rap battle with a quite unexpected KO.

Give a man enough rope and he’ll hand himself. Cohen is a master at giving people rope. They yang themselves, he doesn’t have to do anything.

9 ( +10 / -1 )

Of course.

Most Americans I know struggle to understand his Patois/cockney/Austrian-German and Kazakh anyway.

Sacha is a genius; he is not a Cambridge graduate solely on account of his sexy body.

Chenkui.

Trump is going to Viral Logo, in Palm Beach county, that has the highest death rate from the virus in Florida

Why does Trump respond in the first place to people he doesn't like?

Tell us another one!

Yes like when Trump people say that Trump meant something else when Trump said to inject Mr. Clean to treat covid-19, then they over explain their side and can't stop digging Trump's hole. Just like Rudy can't explain this

Rudy needs a lawyer. Trump needs a much better lawyer!

The non-news about the Borat prank with Guilliani is all over the bubble news, but how many of the bubble media consumers have even heard the name Bobulinski? That news is completely blanked out in the bubble.

Perfect demonstration of political meddling by the "mainstream media".

-13 ( +0 / -13 )

Cohen’s movies will never be considered high class, but his ability to get people to reveal themselves is brilliant, and anyone fooled by him well deserves the ridicule.

Regarding Giuliani, I think the fairest thing to say is that this is a guy who, while once sharp enough to take on organized crime in New York, just got punked by a fairly obvious fake.

There’s no other way to view this - he comes off as an easily manipulated old man who thinks very highly of himself.

13 ( +13 / -0 )

SBC is hilarious, even if everyone (well, nearly everyone) is in on the joke these days.

but his ability to get people to reveal themselves is brilliant, and anyone fooled by him well deserves the ridicule.

Yes, totally - a bit like Chris Morris and fellow satirists on The Day Today/On The Hour/Brass Eye back in the 90s. But perhaps less subtle.

These days, I like Klepper, Louis Theroux and Andrew Callaghan - the latter just points a mic at the interviewees who proceed to dig holes for themselves without prompting or leading questions.

10 ( +10 / -0 )

The left are the modern scribes and pharisees.

Very odd language to use. You're aware SBC is Jewish?

Back in the 60's it was the church people who were the powerful sneering thugs, now the tables are turned and it's the left who are in power and can get away with snotty behavior like Sacha Baron Cohen.

He's a comedian, he's not "in power". Although he does command a mean mankini!

At least the church people gave us orphanages, hospitals, homeless shelters, etc.

Indeed. Don't forget, though, that they also gave us rampant clerical abuse, Magdalene laundries and other monstrous goings on.

The left gives us nothing.

Well, they did give us Father Ted, pity Linehan went off the boil in recent years.

I don’t think Borat is funny, and I don’t think Guilliani was tucking in his shirt.

I loved the first movie and it was one of the biggest hits of the year so I guess a lot of people like him....I watched part 2 last night and it was funny. His daughter was great but parts are cringeworthy. He's too well known in the US to be able to pull off the jokes he did in the first movie...

Trump calling anyone a "fake" is kind of funny...but he would know

Unedited project Veritas footage showing real-life problems are censored by the "mainstream" media. Ridiculous Borat films are played up... as long as conservatives are on the receiving end. Go figure.

The conservatives typically go along willingly and reveal their true selves. And typically it is a mean and unpleasant nature that is revealed.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Baron-Cohen is a clever man, and he knows how to show people at their worst.

The fact that Trump continually rails against TV comedians and comedy shows, just highlights how skewed his priorities are.

I think this is a great picture. We see pictures of women dressed in as little every day on poster ads - and here on JT many times - where were your complaints then?

He certainly is the picture of physical health for a man of his age, too.

How is it non-news if it’s on every news source? Must be a big bubble.

A strange thing just happened. I googled Tony Bobulinski and wow, he was also in exactly the same news sources. Wawaweewa!

I used to like Cohen's work until his post-Borat slump. Then he recently outed himself as a globalist, pro-censorship dystopian shill and I lost all interest in him.

Interesting but odd language, again.

Incidentally, those who are against censorship, how do they feel about comments calling for the top picture to be removed?

To me, he is similar to what Jordan Klepper (https://youtu.be/4b-dannQQ0Q) is doing - taking advantage of bigots' stupidity in any way possible. The main difference between the two is that Borat is a little too crude for my liking. If you find it offensive, just don't watch it.

Not really; remember how they caught Van Jones outside CNN on hidden camera calling the Russian collusion story a "nothingburger"?

They have tons of undercover footage of Big Tech employees admitting how they try to curate news and lopsidedly fact check and algorthimically suppress conservative voices as directed from top down for political reasons. They're also the only ones to get hidden footage of antifa meetings and training.

Just because they're right-leaning doesn't mean they're fake.

Jones said that O'Keefe had deceptively edited the video to take his remarks out of context and was attempting to "pull off a hoax." Jones added that he believed that there probably was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

Whoops.

They're also the only ones to get hidden footage of antifa meetings and training.

They can't get footage of things that don't exist.

Just because they're right-leaning doesn't mean they're fake.

No, they're fake because they have a history of deceptively editing footage to try and spread disinformation. Your boy O'Keefe was also caught red handed trying to film someone having sex without their consent.

Sex fiends, liars, and criminals. That's your big media icon.

Doesn't surprise me, though. The same goes for your choice of President.

Though I don't like Trump, I give him credit for calling out Ali G (Cohen) nearly right away, when Ali G tried to sell him on an ice cream glove to protect your hand from melting ice cream. Trump listened for about a minute then said 'good luck with that' and left.
