The new movie, which is going straight to streaming video on October 23, finds Borat making his way back to middle America in the midst of the 2020 election and coronavirus pandemic. (The movie’s full titled is:
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.)
Following the first presidential debate on Tuesday, Amazon released a mock teaser in which it becomes clear that Borat is an enthusiastic Trump supporter. In his voiceover, Borat praises the “strongest premier in history” Trump for his debate win over Joe “Beeden,” adding that Americans must “vote for premier Trump or you will be crushed.”
Cohen later tweeted an image of himself in character as Borat wearing a coronavirus mask as a “mankini.”
Amazon released the first full trailer for the sequel on Thursday, showing Cohen crashing what appears to be CPAC 2020 in February to heckle Vice President Mike Pence while wearing a Trump mask and body suit. The trailer also mocks middle America conservatives when Borat asks his hosts to choose which is more dangerous between the “veeroos” and the Democrats. They pick the Democrats.
Last year, Cohen accused President Trump of using “
extreme and racist language,” while promoting his Showtime series Who Is America?
“You have a president who is using extreme and racist language, so things that we would have found shocking and would have made a crowd, you know, their mouths open, aghast, in
Borat now are the kind of utterances coming from the most powerful office in the country.”
