5 jaw-dropping moments in ‘Borat 2,’ from Rudy Giuliani to an anti-abortion prank

  • October 27, 2020

Spoiler alert! The following details several pranks in the new movie “Borat 2.” Stop reading now if you haven’t seen it yet and don’t want to know.

More than a decade after his infamous singalong “Throw the Jew Down the Well,” Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat is back to satirize politicians, conspiracy theorists and anti-Semitic Americans with the sequel “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” (streaming now on Amazon Prime). 

The comedy is out just in time for the contentious Nov. 3 election (like so many political documentaries are), and Borat is joined by his daughter, Tatur (played by brilliant breakout star Maria Bakalova), on a mission to deliver a gift to the “U, S and A” government.

What kinds of outrageous and divisive situations could the dimwitted foreign reporter character get into? Here are five moments from the “Borat” sequel that will shock you:

‘This is a hit job, I assure you’:Rudy Giuliani responds to eyebrow-raising situation in ‘Borat 2’

Review:Review: Sacha Baron Cohen’s silly, scattershot ‘Borat 2’ takes aim at Trump, COVID

Borat (Sacha Baron Cohen) takes his teen daughter Tatur (Maria Bakalova) to a Georgia debutante ball in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

Borat tells an anti-abortion pastor he put ‘a baby in’ his teenage daughter

After Tatur inhales a cupcake and accidentally swallows the plastic baby that adorned it, Borat takes her to a crisis pregnancy center where he meets a pastor who thinks Borat’s daughter wants an abortion. 

“I feel bad, because I was the one that put the baby in her,” says Borat, slapping himself. “I was just trying to give my daughter pleasure, and the next thing you know, there is a baby inside her.” The pastor confirms with Tatur that Borat is her father and proceeds to counsel them to keep the baby.

Other memorable lines delivered by Borat with a straight face: He tells a baker to write “Jews will not replace us” with a smiley face on top of a cake, which she does without complaint, and asks a tanning salon employee, “What color is best for a racist family?” to which she has a specific suggestion. 

Tatur is obsessed with an animated film about ‘peasant girl’ Melania

In Kazakhstan, where Tatur is from, there’s a princess-style story and accompanying animated movie about a character called “Queen Melania,” a “peasant girl” from Slovenia who winds up living in a beautiful cage and married to an old rich man. Tatur dreams of being the next Melania and agrees to be given as a gift to an American politician to make it so. 

Borat (Sacha Baron Cohen) goes undercover as Country Steve when crashing a March for Our Rights rally in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

Borat sings about injecting Dr. Fauci ‘with the Wuhan flu’

Amid the coronavirus outbreak, Borat quarantines with two conspiracy theorists who insist that Hillary Clinton drinks the blood of children. The three of them write a song about the pandemic, and later Borat, pretending to be musician “Country Steve,” performs it at a March for Our Rights rally, complete with a participatory call-and-response segment.

“Obama, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu!” he yells to an excited crowd, who repeat after him. “Dr. Fauci, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu!” 

Borat arrives at a conservative event wearing a KKK hood, then switches into a Trump costume

Once he learns that Vice President Mike Pence is giving a Conservative Political Action Conference speech nearby, Borat determines he must meet the politician and offer his daughter as a gift. How does he get in? With a disguise, he figures.

Borat enters the lobby dressed in what looks like a white KKK hood and announces, “I’m Stephen Miller!” He apparently is not stopped.

Then he goes into a restroom to put on a head-to-toe Trump costume, complete with a padded suit and long red tie. He enters the auditorium with his daughter thrown over his shoulder while Pence is onstage. He is quickly escorted out.

Borat (Sacha Baron Cohen) dresses up as Donald Trump and interrupts Mike Pence's CPAC speech in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

Rudy Giuliani shows up in a suggestive hotel scene

At this point, you may have heard about the climactic point in the film when Giuliani is caught in an eyebrow-raising position.

Tutar, pretending to be a news reporter, goes into a bedroom with Giuliani for a drink after their interview. He asks for her name and address, and the camera captures Tutar (who’s played by a 24-year-old actress) reaching into Giuliani’s shirt to retrieve his microphone as he gives her a pat on the back. The camera captures Giuliani, 76, lying down on the bed and reaching into his pants (he says he was tucking in his shirt), when Borat bursts into the room and announces, “She’s 15, she’s too old for you.” 

Giuliani has called his appearance in the film “a hit job.”
