    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.

    The best part is the interview with the woman using "Americanized" in place of "civilized." Those folks sued and lost.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Yes, same. Amazing they kept it under wraps this long. Guessing once they gave it to the critics today is why it came out.
