Sacha Baron Cohen has made a career putting politicians in embarrassing situations and he might have topped it with Rudy Giuliani.

In his latest movie "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm" (which Insider has seen), the comic plays his iconic character coming back to the US to deliver a gift to Vice President Mike Pence: his 15-year-old daughter, Tutar (played by Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova).

When that doesn't work out, he turns his attention to Trump's personal attorney and former New York City mayor, Rudy Giuliani.

At the end of the movie Tutar, now a news reporter, lands an interview with Giuliani during the pandemic. We watch as Giuliani enters the hotel suite where the interview will be taking place. He takes off the mask he's wearing and sits down to be interviewed by Tutar. Despite the interview being shot during the pandemic, the two are not socially distanced. In fact, after Tutar says how much she admires him, he shakes her hand. Throughout the interview, he's touching her and also at one point coughs in his hand. 

Tutar goes on to say that she's nervous. In the scene, Giuliani grabs both her hands and says to her, "You're going to do great."

Tutar then goes on and asks a question on what needs to happen so a pandemic doesn't happen again, in which Giuliani said that the virus was "manufactured" by China and that it deliberately spread it around the world. "I don't think anyone was eating bats," he said.

Tutar with a laugh then says, "If you eat a bat with me I would," to which Giuliani said, "OK, I'll eat a bat with you."

As the pair laughs, Tutar then puts her hand on Giuliani's knee.

The two also sip what looks like scotch in one shot.

Throughout the scene, the interview jump-cuts to Cohen as Borat racing to the interview to try to stop it from happening. He makes it into the interview room disguised as a sound man and tells Giuliani that Tutar would be a "nagging wife." Giuliani responds by saying, "No!"

Tutar kicks out Borat and she and Giuliani are then seen walking into the bedroom of the suite with the glasses of scotch in their hands.

"We will have a drink in the bedroom," Tutar says to him.

Giuliani says, "You can give me your phone number and your address" to Tutar as he sits down on the bed.

The camera is angled so we only see Giuliani's back and Tutar leaning down towards him. His back is blocking what she is doing. He gently taps the small of her back, close to her bottom, with his hand a few times.

It then cuts to another camera angle, from outside the bedroom, that shows a reflection from a mirror that shows what's going on inside the bedroom. It looks like Tutar has leaned forward and is trying to get the mic wire out from inside Giuliani's shirt as he is sitting on the bed.

Another cut happens to a camera inside the room pointed in front of them. Tutar now has the mic cord and battery pack in her hand. Giuliani then lays down on the bed and tucks his shirt in his pants. Then Borat returns, in disguise but this time wearing pink lingerie and says to Giuliani, "She's 15, she too old for you."

Giuliani asks why he's dressed that way, and Borat pleads for Giuliani to take him instead of Tutar. Giuliani says, "I don't want you." After some arguing between Borat and Tutar on why they are better for him, Giuliani leaves the suite.

Insider called Giuliani for comment but did not get a response.

The interview footage seems to have occurred in July. Back then, Page Six reported that Giuliani went to the Mark Hotel in New York City for an interview about the coronavirus response by the Trump administration.

"This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit," Giuliani told Page Six. "It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn't what I would call distractingly attractive."

"I only later realized it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen," he added. "I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn't get me."

But people who see "Borat 2" may think differently.

The release of the movie and Giuliani's appearance in it also comes on the heels of US officials warning the White House that Russian intelligence was using Giuliani to funnel disinformation to Trump.

"Borat Subsequent Moviefilm" will be available on Amazon Prime Video on Friday.
