"Borat" and Giuliani

'Nuff said.

https://www.theguardian.com/film/202...new-borat-film

Quote:
The reputation of Rudy Giuliani could be set for a further blow with the release of highly embarrassing footage in Sacha Baron Cohen’s follow-up to Borat.

In the film, released on Friday, the former New York mayor and current personal attorney to Donald Trump is seen reaching into his trousers and apparently touching his genitals while reclining on a bed in the presence of the actor playing Borat’s daughter, who is posing as a TV journalist.

I think we now know where Giuliani got the child porn idea for the Hunter Biden laptop circus.

In other news, the leader of the special GRU cell who devised a convoluted, expensive and risky scheme to trick Giuliani into peddling disinformation has been reassigned to traffic control in Northern Kamsjatka.

So, once again, Giuliani has managed to make a fool of himself.

Or as my grandfather used to say:

Giuliani has always been an ass. Growing up in NY I always despised the man, and that was BEFORE he mutated to his current form.

Well his daughter endorsed Biden, so I am not sure he has any family who still has anything to do with him.

A not-small number of people have seen advanced copies of Borat 2 already.

Consensus seems to be that Rudy’s appearance is beyond the embarrassment of having fallen for a prank to the full-on ruin of a scandal.

Boy, that would be a shame.

Trump is already starting to "not know" Rudi. Soon he will completely "never met him, never knew him" him entirely. Coffee-fetcher...wasn't it?

Sara Palin and Dick Cheney got fooled by Sasha Baron Cohen as well.

As a result, Giuliani is now at the bottom of the heap with them and I am sure that he will enjoy their company.

Wasn't he a pretty good man once? Back when he was mayor of NYC or whatever? At around the time of 9/11? I hear people liked him.

I first heard of him (I think) when he had become one of Trump's cronies, by which time he apparently wasn't such a good and honest man anymore.

I don't know if you'll even get that far. I predict you'll have to wade through a hail of panicked whataboutisms first. I predict capital letter Tweets, and forum and comments thread posts from trumpkins, about PedoBiden and other targets they can try to shift the focus onto.

He was popular with the Staten Island crowd and the law-and-order types. I won't deny his enthusiasm for his city, but he also ran a police riot when Dinkins wasn't doing things his way.

Looking back, he did a lot of what Trump does: ride the momentum of people who did the heavy lifting before him and claim most of the credit.

I also know he made a lot of decisions that many folks in NYC weren't fond of. Putting a reaction center in WTC7 was a bad idea, also some of his efforts made the more ethnic parts of Manhattan Island much more sterile.

The focus shift, from the base and maybe all the way to the top, will be... "this is how real men, you know... locker room type men, behave around pretty women".

And why Pence won't be alone with one.


Eta: And didn't Sacha fake interview Sheriff Joe a couple years ago? I don't recall the gotcha but Arpaio (or whoever) wasn't a happy camper about it.

I think it's about a need to remain relevant and an absence of people who care enough about them to protect them from themselves.

He got extremely popular as a federal prosecutor that took on the NY mafia families, then leveraged that into a political career as the NYC mayor. I'm sure he had his detractors then and now, as any mayor of a major city will. He was already getting a reputation as a conservative crank in these latter years, but things really went south for his legacy when he jumped on the sinking Trump ship.

He was already known to be a sleaze, after all he moved in with his mistress while still married to his second wife, and used the power of his office to keep the affair - and the cost of it - opaque.

As mentioned above he was popular with the Law & Order types for getting things done regardless of the methods used. When Disney were contemplating bringing The Lion King musical to Times Square back in 1994, Michael Eisner voiced his concerns about the seedyness of the area, since Disney couldn't really be seen next to adult video stores and prostitutes.
Quote:
Eisner met with mayor Rudy Giuliani and told him Disney couldn’t be on a street full of prostitutes, peep shows, and porn houses. “They’ll be gone,” Giuliani said.

“Mr. Mayor, in all deference,” Eisner said, “I come from New York, and I know you just can’t move somebody out. They’ve got rights, there’s the ACLU—it’s very difficult.”

“Look me in the eyes,” Giuliani said.

“What do you mean?”

“Just look me in the eyes.”

Eisner did.

“They will be gone,” the mayor said.

“Okay, so I guess they’ll be gone,” Eisner said.

He simply had the same of stroke luck as George W. Bush to be in office on 9/11 and used the ratings boost to his advantage.

Rudy W. Giuliani tweeted

@RudyGiuliani
(1) The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment.
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.

(2) In fact, the NY Post today reports "it looks to me like an exaggeration through editing."
As soon as I realized it was a set up I called the police, which has been noted in THR article on July 8th.

(3) This is an effort to blunt my relentless exposure of the criminality and depravity of Joe Biden and his entire family.
Deadline Hollywood reports CAA had a distribution screening in September where there was no mention of the scene holding any importance.

(4) We are preparing much bigger dumps off of the hard drive from hell, of which Joe Biden will be unable to defend or hide from. I have the receipts.
