Washington Examiner: Rudy Giuliani called the New York City Police Department when he realized something wasn’t quite right when Sacha Baron Cohen showed up in drag.
Cohen, a comedian, set up a meeting with Giuliani at the Mark Hotel in Manhattan on Tuesday under the false pretense of having President Trump’s personal attorney discuss the administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The prank interview was likely for Cohen’s political satire show, This is America, in which he gets people to say and do ludicrous things.
Giuliani, 76, agreed to do an interview with someone he thought would be a woman. The woman turned out to be Cohen in drag — perhaps a nod to the former New York City mayor’s drag-queen comedy stints between 1997 and 2000.
“This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away.” more.
