Sacha Baron Cohen brings back Ali G to take shots at President Donald Trump

Sacha Baron Cohen couldn't resist bringing back his classic character Ali G, in order to take one more jab at Donald Trump.

In his latest series, Who is America?, the comedian brought with him a new fleet of characters to weaponise against Trump's associates and the GOP at large.

However, with both the conviction of Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and the guilty plea by his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen, Ali G decided to wade in on the news by declaring: "Yesterday it was proven in de courts dat u iz a crook – respeck! U iz a genuine gangsta!"

The actor and comedian also referenced Cohen's direct implications that Trump had paid "hush money" to prevent two women speaking out about alleged extramarital affairs.

"Also nuff respek for bonin all dem pornstars – but why iz u payin dem money to keep quiet about it?" the message continued. "We know it aint coz u haz got a tiny dong, u told everyone it woz massive on da telly, and one fing u ain't, is a liar."


Alongside the open letter, he shared a throwback clip from the Da Ali G Show featuring Trump, in which the future president is asked: "How long has there been businesses?"


Trump has previously claimed that he wasn't fooled by the interview, tweeting in 2012: "I never fall for scams. I am the only person who immediately walked out of my ‘Ali G’ interview."


A slice of wisdom he might want to pass on to his associates, then, since they've made perfect targets for Who is America?.
