Sacha Baron Cohen calls Donald Trump a ‘genuine gangsta’

Sacha Baron Cohen’s fictional character, Ali G, returned to Twitter Thursday night to troll President Donald Trump by calling him a ‘genuine gangsta’.

‘2 my main man President Ronald Trump, check out when you colluded wiv me a few years ago and u corrected all dem stupid fake news scientists who said day humanoids have only been around for 300,000 years,’ Ali G wrote. 

He was referring to an interview he did with Trump in 2003, which he also shared on Twitter.

He continued: ‘Yesterday it was proven in de courts day u iz a crook – respeck! U iz a genuine gangsta! And it turns out most of your crew are too innit (4 guilty so far).’

Ali G then compared the president to rap mogul Suge Knight. 

‘U iz de Suge Knight of world leaderz innit,’ Ali G said. 

Ali G, who made his debut appearance on the The 11 O’Clock Show in 1998, continued to give his ‘respek’ to the president by appearing to take aim at Trump’s ongoing political scandal.

‘Also nuff respek for bonin all dem pornstars – but why iz u paying dem money to keep quiet about it? We know it aint coz u got a tiny dong, u told everyone it woz massive on da telly, and on ting u aint, is a liar,’ Ali G wrote. 

Cohen shared the video of Ali G’s interview with Trump just a month after the interview resurfaced in July. 

In the 2003 interview, on Cohen’s breakout program Da Ali G Show, Trump is seen walking off set less than a minute into the interview with Cohen, who was trying to get the real estate scion to invest in gloves for eating ice cream.

Cohen claimed in an interview just a few years back that Trump spent about seven minutes speaking with him that day in total, which was edited down to a minute. 

The comedian referenced several scandals plaguing the Trump administration in Thursday night’s Twitter post. 

Earlier this week Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, pleaded guilty to a number of charges, including making an ‘excessive campaign contribution at the request of a candidate or campaign’.

This related to payments made to the Playboy model Karen McDougal and porn star Stormy Daniels. 

Cohen is expected to be sentenced on 12 December.

Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was also found guilty on five counts of tax fraud two counts of bank fraud and one count of failure to report a foreign bank account, and could face decades in prison.

The president is one of the many politicians that Sacha Baron Cohen has targeted in his new Showtime series Who Is America?
