No knee jerking here. Anyone that has seen Sasha Baron Cohen film knows his MO: disguises, cover stories, guerilla journalism; it is "gothca" through
and through. I'm sure the naive and desperate among us would take a single photo from a film and extrapolate it into Rudy being guilty of sexual
predation, but then again they likely don't know about how Cohen operates.
Rudy has done enough shady things in his personal "affairs" (in the literal meaning) to sully his reputation. Is he on his 3rd marriage now, or just
single after 2 failed (ahem, ended after he cheated) ones?
All that said, the above has 0, zilch, to do with the Biden story, and does NOTHING to discredit the investigation into the laptop.
I find it very interesting that SURPRISE! non other than Sash Baron Cohen was a prime time guest on one of the tabloid morning talk shows today. MSM
going FULL THROTTLE to drag Biden's carcass over the finish line, as they clearly are trotting Cohen out in a weak sauce attempt at character
assassination aimed at Guillianni.
Cohen's work is as NON politically-correct as it comes and being honest I don't see how this is tolerated in the new era, where the SJW attack dogs
swarm on material 100x less 'offensive' than this. OH that's right, Cohen's targets in this new film are mainly white people, and many times old white
men, hahahaha, then let's all have a laugh then.
The comedic value of Cohen's work in its prime was fearless challenging of boundaries of decency, Borat was a satirical device that played on cultural
unfamiliarity, a guy extremely 'out of place' in Western society, and it poked fun in some ways at an entire, innocent nation (Kazakhstan) as part of
the gag. Making fun of Western cultural utilizing a Central Asian (heavily European influenced) character, I'm sorry to say, is VERY SAFE GROUND in
2020, artistically. Cohen's early work was all about SHOCK VALUE and TBH as mentioned the Borat meme is ..... played out now and not really pushing
the envelope. I would love to see Cohen develop some acts that use a non SAFE setup, a la Dave Chappelle's "Black KKK" member, and see where that
leads in this environment.
My read is that now Cohen, like many more Hollywood people, are very polarized politically, and unwilling to buck the system, unless that plays along
with SJW narrative and doesn't ruffle feathers on the political left. If that has indeed become his style, then I think I'll pass on any of his new
