Q: Whatever happened to Rudy Giuliani? I bring it up because you wrote that "As you may have noticed, neither Joe nor Hunter Biden holds a political office right now, which means that they have no role in the government's management (or mismanagement) of the pandemic." But with respect to Giuliani, he didn't hold a political office, yet was VERY involved in the government's response to...Joe Biden in Ukraine. E.W., Ann Arbor, MI

A: Well, like any White House, this administration does not openly announce when someone has become too much of a liability, and that they're being put out to pasture. However, that is surely what happened with Rudy. Given his habit of running his mouth and his sometimes hazy mental state, he embarrassed the administration numerous times. Further, despite massive Republican protestations to the contrary, he was a very visible reminder of Donald Trump's biggest fiasco prior to COVID-19. And so, he's been sent back to New York, where he does his little podcast, and that's that. Maybe after he's cooled his jets for a few months, he might be sent out on the campaign trail, but we doubt it.

Rudy Giuliani’s Compromising Appearance in New ‘Borat’ Film Raises Questions Ahead of Election

Image

https://variety.com/2020/film/news/rudy-giuliani-borat-sacha-baron-cohen-controversy-1234812483/

Rudy Giuliani – former New York City mayor and current attorney to President Donald Trump – is facing questions on his behavior in Sacha Baron Cohen’s upcoming “Borat” sequel. (Warning: spoilers ahead.)

In a scene from the film (out this Friday on Amazon), Giuliani is tricked into entering the bedroom of a hotel suite by Maria Bakalova, portraying Borat’s daughter. Posing as a TV journalist, the 24-year old actor invites Giuliani for a fawning interview for a made-up conservative news program. During their encounter, the attorney drinks Scotch, coughs and ignores social distancing measures. At one point, he even tells Bakalova that the president’s speedy responses in the spring saved the lives of a million Americans from dying from coronavirus outbreaks. “I’d say he saved a million lives,” Giuliani responds before coughing.

Under the guise of a mic operator, Borat comes in and adjusts Giuliani’s mic and asks, “Is she asking too many questions?”

The pair retreat, at her suggestion, for a drink to a bedroom that is equipped with concealed cameras capturing the attorney’s every move. After she removes his microphone, Giuliani says, “You can give me your phone number and address.” He is then seen lying back on the bed, fiddling with his shirt before reaching into his trousers. He is interrupted by Borat who runs into the room and says: “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”

Giuliani tweeted Wednesday that he was tucking in his shirt and that the video is “a complete fabrication.”

New Borat film shows Rudy Giuliani with hand in his pants
New ‘Borat’ film released Friday shows Rudy Giuliani in a compromising position, but ex-New York City mayor calls video ‘a complete fabrication’.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/10/23/new-borat-film-shows-rudy-giuliani-with-hand-in-his-pants

23 Oct 2020

Controversy has swirled this week ahead of Friday’s release of Sacha Baron Cohen’s new “Borat” film, a satirical look at the United States that comes less than two weeks ahead of the hotly contested presidential election.

One of the most talked-about moments in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm involves Rudy Giuliani, US President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, being interviewed by an actress pretending to be a reporter. The actress portrayed Baron Cohen’s 15-year-old daughter in the film.

The scene, shot in a New York hotel room in July, includes a moment when Giuliani, 76, is lying on a bed and has his hand in his pants.

Giuliani, who went to the hotel room thinking he was being interviewed about the Trump administration’s COVID-19 response, can be heard asking for the woman’s phone number and address.

At one point, he also pats her on the lower back.

The former mayor of New York responded when media reports about the scene first emerged this week, saying on Wednesday that the video is “a complete fabrication”.

“I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment,” Giuliani tweeted.

“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.”

At the end of the scene, a disguised Baron Cohen rushes into the room, dressed in pink lingerie, shouting that the woman is 15.

Giuliani told The New York Times that he called the police after the mock interview took place.

“He and all his crew ran away leaving their equipment behind,” he said, referring to Baron Cohen.

Trolling those close to Trump is a central theme of the new Borat film, a sequel to a 2006 mockumentary in which Baron Cohen returns as his alter ego from Kazakhstan in a plot that involves trying to give his daughter as a gift to US Vice President Mike Pence.

Republican politicians have fallen for Baron Cohen’s pranks before.

In 2008, Republicans endorsed a gun programme in which four-year-olds are trained to use military-grade weaponry in Baron Cohen’s comedy series Who is America?.

Playing the role of an Israeli anti-terrorist expert, Baron Cohen successfully convinced former Congressman Joe Walsh, former Senator Trent Lott, California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and South Carolina Congressman Joe Wilson to endorse “kinder-guardians”.
