A fake "interview" organized
On Wednesday, Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York and lawyer for Donald Trump, protested against the broadcast of the clip, a scene where he was the victim of a false "interview" organized in a hotel room in the presence of a young woman. The scene gives the impression that Mr. Giuliani is seized in a compromising position as he is seen with his hands in his pants, lying on a bed.
But the lawyer said the scene was "a complete fabrication." “I was putting my shirt back in my pants after removing the recording equipment,” he said on Twitter. “At no time before, during or after the interview did I behave inappropriately. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies the opposite, he is shamelessly lying, ”added Rudy Giuliani.
Donald Trump was questioned about the case after Air Force One had just taken off from Pensacola (Florida) towards West Palm Beach. He spoke of an incident he himself had with Sacha Baron Cohen about fifteen years ago. In 2003, Donald Trump was interviewed by the comedian who claimed to be Ali G, a gangster who presented his latest project, special gloves for eating ice cream. “To me, he was a bad guy,” Mr. Trump commented.
