Sacha Baron Cohen sends Donald Trump a message from Ali G

Wil Jones

Ali has a lot to say about Stormy Daniels.

After a period of inactivity, and a few flops like Grimsby, Sacha Baron Cohen has really come back with a bang in 2018.

His Showtime series Who Is America?, broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK, saw him return to the spoof interview format that made his name – though now with a much more political edge.

The show introduced a host of new characters, including NPR reporter Dr. Nira Cain-N’Degeocello, far-right conspiracy theorist Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., Ph.D., and best of all, Israeli security expert Erran Morad, and sees them going on a journey across Donald Trump’s fractured America to try and find a sense of the country.

Or in reality, just make fun of a load of gullible interviewees.

Many of the politicians made to look like idiots on the show have blasted Cohen, including Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney.

Now, however, Cohen has resurrected his first great creation, Ali G, to send a message to Donald Trump – albeit in text form only.

Cohen tweeted a clip of his infamous Ali G interview with Trump, back when he was just a game show host and not the actual President of the actual United States of America. He then followed it up with a message from Ali G, taking aim at his legal troubles and relationship with porn star Stormy Daniels.

Ali G calls him a “genuine gangsta” and the “the Suge Knight of world leaderz”. He says he has “nuff respek” for Trump on account of him “bonin all dem pornstars”, though he doesn’t know why he would pay them to keep quiet about it.

He ends the message by thanking him for being an inspiration, showing that “u can become President of America without having to give up a life of crime”.

Cohen had previously tweeted Trump while teasing the reveal of Who Is America?

Needless to say, Trump is not a fan.
