Sacha Baron Cohen Explains How ‘Borat’ Scene With Rudy Giuliani Almost Fell Apart

  Sacha Baron Cohen Explains How ‘Borat’ Scene With Rudy Giuliani Almost Fell Apart Of all the scenes from Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat: Subsequent Movieflim, the one that shows Rudy Giuliani putting his hand down his pants in the company of the Kazakh journalist’s teenage daughter caught the most attention. However, on Monday night, Baron Cohen revealed to Stephen Colbert that the infamous scene nearly fell apart. “The interview starts and I switch on the phone and there’s only 3% battery and I go, ‘Hold on we’ve got Rudy Giuliani, we’ve got the president’s lawyer, we’ve got this scene – this is the climax of the movie and no one thought it might be worth charging the phone?’,” he said on A Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Rudy Giuliani scoffed at the notion that the presidential contest went to Joe Biden Saturday, throwing his arms to “Courts set aside elections when they’ re illegal,” Giuliani said. “In this particular case, I don’t know if there’s enough evidence to set aside the entire election , certainly not around the country.

Rudy Giuliani was on Monday still insisting 'this will turn all around' hours before Donald Trump gave the green light for the transition to Joe Biden to begin. Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee joined the ranks of Republicans Monday calling for Trump to concede and accept that he has lost reelection.

It might not seem like it now, but once upon a time Rudy Giuliani actually appeared to respect the democratic process.

In fact, in direct contrast to the insane conspiracy theories, lie-filled press debacles or press events where he flop-sweats his hair dye out we've seen from him in modern times, he once made a big show of accepting the results of an election he lost. In fact, he conceded immediately, and then did everything he could to promote unity with the candidate who won. While, we should add, also shutting down his angry supporters who booed the winner and demanded a recount.

It happened in 1989, when Giuliani ran his first campaign to become the mayor of New York. His opponent was Democrat David Dinkins, who died Monday night at age 93 and in 1989 won the election by 50,000 votes out of nearly 2 million cast. That's little more than 2% of the total.

But despite that relatively narrow divide, and despite the fact Dinkins was succeeding a Democratic mayor — Ed Koch –whose time in office was rocked by multiple corruption scandals, Giuliani didn't do any of the shady, dishonest things we've come to expect from him and his current boss, Donald Trump. No baseless accusations of cheating, no insinuations of international conspiracies, no flimsy lawsuits that get laughed out of court, no attacks on Dinkins' character. And most importantly, no efforts to rile up his supporters to ensure Dinkins became mayor of an even more bitterly divided NYC.

Instead, Giuliani immediately acknowledged reality — that he lost — and congratulated Dinkins on his victory. What's more, he angrily pushed back when during his concession speech his supporters rejected peace.

Giuliani began his concession speech telling assembled supporters "I've just spoken to Mayor-Elect David Dinkins." But when the audience responded with loud, angry boos, and more than few people began to shout "recount!" Giuliani seemed to lose his cool.

"No, no, no, no. Nope. No no. No. Stop that. No! Quiet. QUIET!" Giuliani shouted as he waved the crowd to simmer down.

"I can be tough, the other part is sometimes more difficult, but I assure you I'm also nice," Giuliani joked. "But, I just spoke to Mayor-Elect David Dinkins on the telephone, I've congratulated him, and I've wished him and his family the very best for the future of New York, and their future. And they deserve your applause. Applaud for them."

  Former 'Simpsons' Writer Wishes You'd Stop Comparing Rudy Giuliani to Shady Lawyer Lionel Hutz Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's lawyer and star of the Four Seasons Total Landscaping press conference, has drawn a lot of unfavorable comparisons as he attempts to help Trump overturn Joe Biden's decisive election victory. One of the crowd-favorite comparisons has been to Lionel Hutz, the morally-bankrupt lawyer on "The Simpsons" who never made a lawsuit he didn't like.

State Elections Director Christopher Thomas, who was present at the TCF Center in Detroit where ballots were being counted , refuted the allegations in an affidavit submitted to the judge and cited in the ruling. Trump would have two business days after state certification to ask for a recount .

Giuliani — yes, the same guy you've seen recently losing his marbles over the idea Trump might have to admit losing the 2020 election — then led the audience in a round of applause for Dinkins.

"David Dinkins' victory is a historic event. He'll be the first," Giuliani continued before having to pause because, for some reason, the audience picked the moment he was about to note Dinkins' status as the first Black mayor of New York to begin booing again.

"Recount, recount!" one woman shouted, joined shortly after by at least two men.

"Shhh. Please. Please. Please," Giulani said as he struggled to get them to shut up.

Giuliani spent the next several minutes asking the crowd to stop shouting until he finally managed to get to his point.

"Please be quiet and listen to me. It's very important for the future of our city that we all come together. And I want you to show that spirit! Now do it! Alright?" Giuliani said, literally yelling the last bit. "We love New York, don't we? Alright. And we're gonna unify behind the mayor of New York, aren't we? Yes!"

Georgia Audit Confirms That Joe Biden Won State Over Donald Trump

  Georgia Audit Confirms That Joe Biden Won State Over Donald Trump A hand recount of ballots in Georgia affirmed Joe Biden’s victory in the state over Donald Trump, state officials announced Thursday, even as Trump continues to press unfounded claims of voter fraud. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, said that the “historic first statewide audit reaffirmed that the state’s new secure paper ballot voting system accurately counted and reported results.

It was at this point where 1989 Giuliani perhaps differed most from the 2020 model. We'll just lay out what he said for you to see:

"Because that's the democratic process, and we believe in it, don't we? Listen, just listen. David Dinkins has achieved a historic victory here. He is the first African American to hold the office of Mayor of the City of New York, and that is a historic achievement for which we all applaud.

We had a hard fought campaign. And now, in the finest tradition of our democracy, we will work together with all our might to build a great city here in New York."

Giuliani of course ran again for mayor in 1993 and won, serving in the office until 2001. Maybe someone should introduce the guy working for Trump to the guy who made that 1989 speech.

Watch the entire concession speech above.
