President’s Trump personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani is
currently in hot waters, after he was caught up in an upcoming movie “Borat.”
In a short clip from the movie, he was shown with an actress imitating a
reporter into a bedroom and in one scene he was patting his hand in his pants,
which he later justified as an attempt to tuck in his shirt.
On Wednesday, he denied the accusation of
inappropriate touching in the scene, stating that a reported clip from the
movie was taken out of context.
“The Borat video is a complete fabrication,” Giuliani
tweeted. “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.”
His statement came just after the news organization
reported that the upcoming movie “Borat” has a “compromising” scene of Trump’s
close lawyer and a former mayor of New York, where he seems to touch his
genitals while being alone with an actress playing Borat’s daughter’s role.
The scene was actually a set-up for the movie, which
includes unknowing people into the joke and the caricatured titular character.
The actor portraying Borat’s daughter pretended to be
a conservative reporter interviewing Giuliani, the news organization reported. After
finishing up the interview, the two went into a bedroom where the pretending
reporter helps him to remove his microphone. In the clip, Giuliani is then shown
to be laid down and reaching his genitals until Baron Cohen, who played Borat,
intervenes in character.
Giuliani soon called the police as soon as he realized
that it was all a joke. “I called the police,” he tweeted. “He and all his crew
ran away leaving their equipment behind.”
The movie is scheduled to release on Friday.
