Sacha Baron Cohen Prepares To Take On Trump In New Teaser
Watch the mysterious clip that has fans saying "VERY NICE!"
Sacha Baron Cohen is back, and a new clip posted to Twitter teases a mysterious project that will take aim at President Trump.
Released on Independence Day, the 37-second teaser promises that Cohen is “back as you’ve never seen him before,” and features clips of Trump ranting about Cohen.
“This third-rate character named Sacha Baron Cohen, I only wish that he would’ve been punched in the face so many times right now he’d be in a hospital,” Trump says in the teaser.
“It was disgraceful. He should’ve been fired immediately.”
The snippet is from 2012 and was posted as a response to a stunt where Cohen spilled "ashes" on Ryan Seacrest at the Oscars red carpet, while dresses as his Dictator character.
"Sacha Baron Cohen, go to school, learn about being funny. You don't know shit," continues Trump in the clip.
"SACHA GRADUATES," then flashes on the screen, "SOON", before the logo for Trump University appears.
The pair have clashed many times in the past.
Also in 2012, Trump declared on Twitter that he was “the only person who immediately walked out of [an] Ali G interview”.
Four years later -- because who doesn't love a slow burn -- Cohen clapped back on The Late Late Show, telling James Corden that Trump “was actually there for about seven minutes”. Cohen also said that he was "the first person to realise" that Trump was "a dick".
Other shots Cohen took at Trump in 2016 include the scene in The Brothers Grimsby -- a film co-written by Cohen -- in which Trump gets infected with HIV after being exposed to Daniel Radcliffe's blood, a choice that was... a choice.
People had mixed responses to that one, for the record.
Arriving at the Brothers Grimsby premiere in California sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat, holding a beer and a fake gun, Cohen was accompanied by men waving “Vote Trump” signs.
So, yeah, these two hate each other, and whatever Cohen has planned is probs going to be savage.
Anyway, people are hyped!
