Borat Makes An Appearance On Election Day
Sacha Baron Cohen has resurrected his infamous character Borat to vote in the US midterm elections.
Dressing as the controversial character, made famous in the aptly titled film Borat (2006), Cohen posted a photo on Instagram holding, ‘where the ‘Kazakh journalist’ is holding what seems to be an ID card (that doesn’t belong to him) and sporting an ‘I voted’ sticker.
Along with the photo, he added the caption: “I voted, Great Success.” Bet you read that in Borat’s voice in your head.
This comes after the 47-year-old actor made his first appearance as the character since 2012, as he starred in a comedy skit for the show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night.
In the skit, Borat attempts to tamper with the US midterm elections – as he states at the beginning of the clip, all eyes are on Russia following the possible collusion scandal. He continues: “It’s up to Kazakhstan to swing the election for Premier Trump.”
In the video he heads to a wealthy area of California and attempts to meddle with the votes. He starts by asking a woman if she has voted and asks her about putting immigrants in cages – which she defends, saying it’s a ‘humanitarian’ action and is like a ‘camp out’ for the kids involved.
He also makes one man uncomfortable as they debate whether Trump is ‘racist.’ Classic Borat. Explaining to the camera that 72% of the Jewish population vote Democrat, as opposed to Trump’s Republican party. He then goes on to throw bacon at a Jewish man’s feet while shouting: “You shall not pass.”
His Borat character shot to fame in 2006 after featuring on the TV series Da Ali G Show. Cohen actually ended up with a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for the iconic and hilarious performance.
