Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is a Sacha Baron Cohen character, Sacha Baron Cohen character Borat Sagdiyev said Wednesday.
Baron Cohen made a guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night as the Kazakh journalist and TV star, reprising his role as the lead character in the 2006 film. It’s the first time in several years Cohen has played Borat.
“It only safe for me to come on during a festival of Hanukkah because the Jews are at home counting their chocolate moneys,” Borat said. Wednesday night was the fourth night of the eight-day Festival of Lights.
After laughing at Jimmy Kimmel’s name (“In Kazakhstan, ‘Kimmel’ meaning lady’s vajine and ‘Jimmy’ mean much hair,” Borat explained.), the Kazakh TV persona said he came to warn “the U.S. and A” that the “frivolous nincompoops Sacha Cohens” has returned.
“His characters are very, very offensive: Ali G, Bruno, and his new one, Donald Trump,” Borat said. Kimmel, feigning surprise, said, “You’re telling me Donald Trump is a Sacha Baron Cohen character?”
“Yes, and a very unbelievable one,” Borat replied. “The only person who would ban Muslims is someone with a brain like a female chicken. It is clearly a parody of a rich American racist.”
“Cohen have spent all the money on orange paint for face and he leave no money for wig,” Borat said, referring to Trump’s signature hairstyle and bronzed tan. “Now I know what happen to Pamela Anderson’s pubis. It is on his head!”
Kimmel insisted that Trump was, in fact, a real person, to which Borat replied that in that case, Trump was “an absolute Kimmel.”
During his appearance, Baron Cohen also introduced a trailer for his new film, The Brothers Grimsby.
