A young woman asked Donald Trump’s attorney for an interview. After the official appointment, Rudy Giuliani grabbed his pants – then an actor stormed in.
It’s a scene that shouldn’t make the US President’s election campaign any easier: Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was asked for an interview last July. Maria Bakalova asked for it. What Giuliani had no idea: Bakalova is not a reporter, she works as an actress. At this point she was making the new “Borat” film. When Bakalova and Giuliani met for the alleged interview, the young woman began to flirt with the Trump lawyer after the official conversation. Several US media reports unanimously.
So it went on: A video shows both of them in a hotel room. Giuliani lies there on the bed; and touches between the legs. That’s when actor Sacha Baron Cohen, known for his role as Borat, storms into the room. Several hidden cameras recorded the scene. He yells: “She is 15 years old, she is too old for you!” However, the portal “IMDB” reports that Bakalova is actually 24 years old.
Giuliani called the police
The incident became public only now, now the lawyer of the US president justifies himself on Twitter: He claims that the video is a “complete invention”. All he had to do was remove the recording device and then put his hand in his pants. Giuliani added: “I did not behave inappropriately before, during or after the interview. If Sacha Baron Cohen claims otherwise, then he is an ice cold liar.”
That he had been tricked by the actor Cohen, Giuliani apparently only realized later. He told the New York Post that he had called the police. The film, in which the scene is believed to be seen, will air on Amazon Prime from October 23rd.
