In a new interview with The Sun, far-left actor and director Sacha Baron Cohen admitted that his new ‘Borat’ film was released when it was in order to attempt to warn Americans about the “dangers” of voting for Trump.
The movie featured a scene in which former Trump Lawyer Rudy Giuliani was lured to a hotel room by an actress pretending to be a journalist, footage of which was later taken out of context and used to falsely insinuate Giuliani had attempted to initiate a sexual encounter.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“The aim of the movie is to deliver a message. That’s the reason why Borat came out when it did,” he said.
“I thought the thing I can do to warn people is to use my funniest character, my most popular character, to show what I thought the dangers of voting for Trump were. I felt democracy was at a very dangerous point,” Cohen added…
Cohen recently spearheaded the effort to have Trump kicked off YouTube shortly after Twitter permanently suspended the former president’s account.
“This is the most important moment in the history of social media. The world’s largest platforms have banned the world’s biggest purveyor of lies, conspiracies and hate,” Cohen said after Trump’s Twitter ban. “To every Facebook and Twitter employee, user and advocate who fought for this–the entire world thanks you!”
