Sacha Baron Cohen fans are getting a double dose of him as Borat. First he tweeted mock comments on the first Trump v Biden debate of 2020. And soon a Borat sequel will be released.
The Tweet came from an account that supposedly belongs to the government of Republic of Kazakhstan and includes a video. It reads, “Congratulation to great friend of the Kazakh people @realDonaldTrump for winning debate today! Impressive and amazing result for a strong premier who always put America and Kazakhstan first!”
The video itself has Borat narrating and proclaiming things like, “Biden’s breath so bad, he forced to wear a mask. Because of Trump, 350 million Americans still alive. Vote for premier Trump, or you will be crushed.”
This came after Tweets joking that the debate could not be seen there because of wifi problems and a number of Tweets that seem like they may actually come from the real Kazakhstan government. And there was also this little joke about face masks, “Biden WRONG – face masks NOT effective against Covid19! Only proven facial protection is Urine Therapy administered on Premier Trump by two young Uzbek female doctors in 2013. Therapy so effective, he declared it as business expense.”
Sacha Baron Cohen is a vocal critic of Donald Trump.
Perhaps the new account is a publicity gimmick for the return of his most beloved character, Borat.

Amazon will stream the new Borat movie, which apparently will be called, “Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan,” just before Election Day in America.
Sacha Baron Cohen really likes long titles. The original movie, which came out in 2006, was officially called “Borat! Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.”
This will be his third foe documentary, including the 2009 comedy “Bruno.” Baron Cohen also had two television shows where he played fake characters while conducting interviews with real life stars and politicians. Only his subjects, like in his movies, did not know that it was all a joke. First there was the British “Da Ali G Show” and most recently “This Is America” where he pretended to be an Israeli army special forces veteran named Sgt. Erran Morad. In that series he pranked political figures like Corey Lewandowski, Bernie Sanders and Dick Cheney.
Is there no limit to how far Sacha Baron Cohen is willing to go to get a laugh? But there have been consequences for Cohen, negative ones. Some of the people who appeared in Borat sued claiming that he did not adequately inform them of what they were agreeing to film. Some of the people mocked in his movie Bruno were so angry at him that he got threats.
Now Deadline is reporting that not only did he rush to make the new movie, but Baron Cohen also needed to wear a bulletproof vest on a few days of shooting the pic.
