‘Borat’ Filmmaker May Be Targeting President Trump with His New Project

Sacha Baron Cohen teased something on Twitter that has many people talking, but it should be a letdown for any fans looking for something original

If you’re a liberal in Hollywood and your career isn’t working out, there’s a simple solution: Attack President Donald Trump.

The media will love you. Fellow stars will slap you on the back. Your leftism will even excuse any nasty, vulgar attacks you might choose to make against women and children.

And if you’re really lucky, maybe you’ll get a bump in attention or ratings, like Stephen Colbert.

There’s also a chance you’ll end up with multiple flops on your hands, like Michael Moore.

“Borat” creator Sacha Baron Cohen seems to be joining his fellow Hollywood leftists by aiming his new material at the president.

In a mysterious video posted to his Twitter account on July 4, Cohen appeared to announce his next project would be about Donald Trump.

The video contains previous comments made by the president in which he insulted Cohen and his comedic skills. The two had a run-in on Cohen’s “Da Ali G Show,” which ran from 2000-2004. Cohen interviewed Trump — though when Cohen interviews people, he doesn’t let them know it’s all a joke and he’s playing a ridiculous character. Trump ended the interview almost immediately.

The Twitter video from Cohen shows images of the comedian and then the words: “Sacha graduates. Soon.” Then the Trump University logo appears.

Cohen has yet to confirm whether this means he is working on a movie about Trump, but it wouldn’t be a surprise. His last film, 2016’s “The Brothers Grimsby,” which was a major flop, had a plot point in which Trump contracted HIV.

Cohen has attacked the president on several other occasions in interviews.

Whatever he’s working on related to Trump, it’s likely to be buried under the seemingly endless amount of tired material currently coming out of Hollywood — with the same things to say about Trump again and again.
