REPORT: Sacha Baron Cohen To Release Anti-Trump ‘Borat’ Sequel Before Election

“Baron Cohen risked his life multiple times to shoot the scenes in this film...”
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - SEPTEMBER 22: Sacha Baron Cohen attends the 71st Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater on September 22, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

Comedian prankster Sacha Baron Cohen plans to release an alleged anti-Trump sequel to his 2006 smash hit “Borat” on Amazon Prime prior to the election.

According to Deadline, Amazon Studios acquired the rights to Cohen’s film, and it will be premiering on Amazon Prime in October. The movie was filmed during the COVID-19 shutdown and shot in both the U.S. and other international locations.

“Baron Cohen and cohorts flew to various parts of the U.S. and internationally to shoot the film,” reported the outlet. “Baron Cohen risked his life multiple times to shoot the scenes in this film. Indeed, I’m told by sources that he had to wear a bulletproof vest on two different shooting days and on many days, there were risky and dangerous scenarios in shooting.”

According to the Daily Mail, the film aims to be anti-Trump with a title that allegedly targets Vice President Mike Pence: “Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan.” That alleged title was based on a now-deleted listing at the Writers Guild of America website. Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani will reportedly make an appearance as well as another unnamed political figure.

As the Daily Mail reported, the title “insinuates that Pence has ties to Russia, calling him ‘Mikhael Pence’ instead of Mike Pence, and giving him the Russian title of Vice Premiere instead of Vice President.”

Further adding to its anti-Trump street cred, Sacha Baron Cohen trolled the president during the debate on Tuesday night by praising him for his performance on a fake Twitter account for the Republic of Kazakhstan.

“Congratulation to great friend of the Kazakh people @realDonaldTrump for winning debate today! Impressive and amazing result for a strong premier who always put America and Kazakhstan first!” the tweet read.

Sacha Baron Cohen recently had the cops called on him when trying to pull a prank on former New York City Mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani. The moment happened when Giuliani was invited to the Mark Hotel to conduct what he believed was a serious interview about President Trump’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He was allegedly offered payment for the interview, which he asked to be donated to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. When Giuliani arrived, he was greeted by a female interviewer and a professional set. Shortly thereafter, Cohen pulled his stunt.

“This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit,” the former mayor told Fox News. “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.”

“This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away,” he added.

The police did not arrive to investigate. Cohen, according to sources, was seen “sprinting out of the swanky Upper East Side hotel and down 77th Street wearing just a bathrobe.”
