Borat returns "to swing the midterms for Premier Trump"

Charles Bowen | 07 November, 2018, 23:00

The skit saw Borat vowing to tamper with the electorate's midterm elections, declaring "it's up to Kazakhstan to swing the election for Premier Trump" and knocking over a "polling place" sign.

In his first onscreen appearance since 2012, the bumbling Kazakh journalist went door-to-door in a California neighborhood for an election special broadcast of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live! Another Trump supporter was well versed in Trump's "fake news" narrative.

Borat returned to American TV screens last night as Sacha Baron Cohen brought the character back for a spoof campaign video supporting Donald Trump.

"So many came over here, they had to be somewhere", she said. They just needed to keep them somewhere safe temporarily, ' she said.

At his second stop, Borat talked to a man about fake news and Trump being a racist. To which Borat replied, "I'm racist - it's nice".

Borat drove the conversation with three voters on a variety of, er, touchy subjects, such as immigration policy and whether the President is a racist.

Doing what he does best, Cohen, as Borat, continued to push the envelope and test boundaries in the most cringe-worthy and hilarious way possible. "It is good to see democracy in action", he explained, with a conspiratorial wink.

Cohen ended the piece by saying, "Back to you now, Jimmy, you liberal elitist Hollywood bubble globalist Jew mouthpiece".

After debuting the character on Da Ali G Show all the way back in 2000, Cohen enjoyed "great success" with the 2006 Borat film as it made almost £200 million worldwide at the box office - but he's only brought Borat out for a handful of appearances since then.
