Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, blew a gasket on Tuesday night when Fox Business host Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery pressed him on his shocking appearance in Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest film, “Borat 2.”
“Do you regret your interaction in the Borat movie?” Kennedy asked Giuliani, who was filmed lying down on a hotel bed and sticking his hand down his pants while speaking to an actress posing as a 15-year-old girl.
“Now that’s a stupid question isn’t it? That’s a really stupid question,” the lawyer snarled.
“No, it’s not stupid at all. I have a 15-year-old daughter,” the Fox Business anchor shot back. “I watched that and I was kind of grossed out by it. I’m giving you a chance to explain.”
Giuliani then went off on a rant, repeating his previous claim that he was merely tucking in his shirt in that scene and that Baron Cohen “made it appear as if it was something different.”
“Is there anything else you’d like to insult me with?” Giuliani asked Kennedy after complaining that the Fox Business Network host wasn’t indulging his efforts to peddle his latest conspiracy theory about Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.
The lawyer also flew into a rage when Kennedy suggested that he was “acting like Christopher Steele” by trying to push the conspiracy theory.
“Similar to a crook? Similar to an obstructor of justice?” Giuliani nearly shouted. “What you are saying is an outrageous defamation of me, of my reputation!”
He repeatedly demanded that Kennedy “apologize” to him.
“I came on your show in good faith to give you evidence that has been withheld from the American people,” the attorney fumed. “And I get defamed. That is outrageous.”
