Sacha Baron Cohen Uses Golden Globes as Opportunity to Bash Trump, Giuliani
British anti-free speech star continues attacks
'Borat' star and left-wing activist Sacha Baron Cohen used his Golden Globe wins as an opportunity to blast Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani.
The anti-free speech activist received two Golden Globes for Amazon’s Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.
Giuliani appeared in the film, unzipping himself, which was taken out of the context of what was happening.
The former New York mayor added that he was tucking in his shirt and dismissed the scene as a “complete fabrication.”
Cohen took a parting shot at Giuliani after accepting the award.
“Thank you to the all white Hollywood Foreign Press,” Cohen said.
“I gotta to say this movie could not have been possible without my co-star, a fresh new talent, who came from nowhere, and turned out to be a comedy genius, I’m talking of course, about Rudy Giuliani."

"I mean, who can get more laughs out of one unzipping. Incredible.”
Cohen added that Giuliani went on to “star in a string of comedy films.”
“Hits like Four Seasons Landscaping, Hair Dye of the Day, and the courtroom drama aa a Very Public Fart,” he said.
Later Cohen took shots at Trump.
“Donald Trump is contesting the result,” the actor said, adding he was claiming “dead people voted … which is a nasty thing to say about HFPA.”
Last month, Cohen admitted the aim of 'Borat 2' was to “deliver a message” on the “dangers of voting for Trump.”
“The aim of the movie is to deliver a message," Cohen said.
"That’s the reason why Borat came out when it did,” he explained.
“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."
