How are people so fucking stupid? SBC's biggest contribution is shining a light on these animals, jesus
Without knowing more, I feel a little bit of sympathy for the baker. Putting whatever a person asks on a cake is a defensible position, especially given the rhetorical example of the gay wedding cake in that industry.
Lol "The host clean the anus of the others?"
The best part is the interview with the woman using "Americanized" in place of "civilized." Those folks sued and lost.
Also the implication that American culture is the correct and objective good while other cultures are less than
Right. That we're the only culture that has figured out something to do with our feces.
Here is the Rudy scene recap...
Posing as a conservative journalist in the mold of Tomi Lahren—albeit with a strong eastern European accent—Tutar sits down with Giuliani in a Manhattan hotel suite for an “interview” in which she mostly flatters him into creepily flirting with her. “I’ll relax you, you want me to ask you a question?” Giuliani says as she giggles in response. After blaming China for the coronavirus, he agrees to “eat a bat” with his interviewer, who repeatedly touches his knee to egg him on. Baron Cohen first interrupts the interview dressed as a sound engineer with a large boom mic, but leaves before it’s over. At that point, Tutar offers to “have a drink in the bedroom” with Giuliani, who happily obliges.
On what appear to be hidden cameras, we see Giuliani remove her microphone and ask for her phone number and address as he sits down on the bed. He starts patting her backside as she removes the microphone from his pants. Giuliani then lies down on the bed and starts sticking his hands down his pants in a suggestive manner. But before anything more can happen, Borat bursts into the room and shouts, “Put down your chram!”—his preferred word for penis. “She’s 15! She’s too old for you!”
The startled Giuliani, who had no reason to believe his interviewer was underage, sits up abruptly and gets out of there as fast as he can. “Rudy, Trump will be disappoint! You are leaving hotel without golden shower!” Borat yells after him.
Oh man I want to read it but I also want to be amazed tomorrow.
Incoming parade of “I haven’t seen it”s from the same group of people who are breathlessly tweetcrying about every typo in emails from Hunter Biden.
Dumb question but do these people have to sign releases to be in the movie?
Surely they do. I'm guessing they sign it before hand to be "interviewed" but don't read it too closely and don't know they're filmed all the time.
2020 trying to make amends
Imagine being Cohen and watching the feed from the other room and that instanteous "holy shit I can't believe he's..." / "we've gotta get in there!"
Anyone else sign up for the watch party tomorrow?
This is what I keep thinking about. I want to interview him about what was happening behind the scenes while this took place.
I imagine there has to be a line that they can’t allow anyone on camera, whether they’ve signed anything or not, to cross
Yeah there's a point at which the safety of the actress is a concern.
If this is real....
lol if trump is just now hearing about it, but I think it’s fake considering the cops were called and Rudy tried to get charges pressed
unless he didn’t tell trump all of it figuring they’d somehow get it pulled
but it’s been a rumor since it happened so idk
It's just amazing that a big time lawyer and former mayor of NY could be stupid enough to fall into this.
I meant if the screen shots are real and some random college kid got Rudy’s number and got him to respond thinking it was Ivanka
haha with that picture of Ivanka as the proof....
The reason people who are "tricked" by Cohen don't have much of a leg to stand on (and that all of the lawsuits filed against him previously were thrown out in their early stages) comes down to longstanding First Amendment protections and the language of the waiver/release that they sign. He has really good lawyers who planned out the 1A defense. Most states have what are called "Anti-SLAPP" statutes (Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation.) Basically, they keep you from suing somebody for exercising a protected right -- here, the right to speech/expression. Anti-SLAPP statutes primarily come into play when the subject matter is of public concern. For a politician, that pretty much sinks them right there. Also, public figures are excepted from a lot of the typical causes of action that somebody would file suit under in this type of context. They have a much higher burden for defamation, libel, slander, etc. The idea is that most of those torts are rooted in a perceived right to privacy that isn't reasonably expected by public figures.
On top of all of that, they have a bang up release that includes a clause meant to preclude them from later claiming that they were fraudulently induced (one of the few defenses to a release) into signing it. Also, the way that they handle the show's production, they make it really difficult for the foil to later claim that they were actually damaged (for example, they paid all of Palin's travel arrangements), which is an essential element of most of the causes of action they'd claim. That hasn't really been an issue in the lawsuits that were filed against him previously (none got that far), but it would be something that would limit their ability to move forward.
So, in short, (1) the law is in his favor; (2) he has good lawyers; and (3) he's careful in his execution.
It’s hard to say how he was 20 years ago, but I’m guessing he has had a major decline, because he seems a caricature of the guy I remember.
How hard do you get when you get to break out your lawyer pants
Do we know when this was filmed? Rudy got divorced last year
Truth be told, I copy/pasted that from a twitter dm when I explained it to someone in 2018. So, it was more like drawing from past experience spank bank.
Can’t wait to see this.
When I'm in my 70's, if a hot 20-something year old is coming on to me and takes me to the bedroom for a drink, my hand is probably going down my pants too. Hell, I'd probably even agree to eat a bat at that point as well.
the ali g dvd was so much better than the borat movie
this is how I know it’s probably funny if the NYT hipster wasn’t impressed
I wish I hadnt learned about this before I saw the movie. But now that I have, I cant get enough of the jokes
Yes, same. Amazing they kept it under wraps this long. Guessing once they gave it to the critics today is why it came out.
I didn’t feel like they didn’t like it as much as they were trying to be hipster about their review.
Yeah, that's Pleasantburg for you. I live along Pelham.
Promo with famous YouTube vlogger David Dobrik. Got several laughs out of me.
High-five Phil Brickma
I'd ask if you were near the Bi-Lo but that fucker is closing.
I grew up in Laurel Lake round that way. Some how that was zoned for Mauldin.
ohhhh that's why they're yellow.
