It’s Election Day in the United States, and even though it’s meant to be the day where we do our civic duty and vote for the leaders who will represent us in government, it’s somehow still not a national holiday. Thankfully, it sounds like this will be a record year for voter turnout, the biggest in a long time, but Borat Sagdiyev has a special message for the ladies before they go out to the polls today.
And the Borat shenanigans don’t stop there, because Sacha Baron Cohen is still making the publicity rounds for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, which is only in its second week of release on Amazon Prime (even though it feels like it’s been a month). During a recent interview, Cohen explained how the stunt where he’s dressed as Donald Trump during Vice President Mike Pence‘s speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) earlier this year almost went wrong.

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm hasn’t even been out for an entire week, and it’s already been making waves in a variety of ways. Obviously, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani has felt the biggest impact from the mockumentary sequel, but since he’s Donald Trump‘s lawyer, the increasingly unstable president has been inundated with questions about the scandal in question. So of course it’s prompted some verbal sparring between the petty world leader and Borat star and creator Sacha Baron Cohen. But that’s not all.
In the wake of the release of Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, there’s also been a lawsuit dismissed that was filed by a family member of one of the film’s most pivotal subjects. Plus, the Kazakhstan tourism board is officially embracing one of Borat’s catchphrases as part of their marketing campaign. And finally, Sacha Baron Cohen himself has released some unseen footage in which his life was put at risk during a key sequence. Get the lowdown on all of the Borat 2 controversy and aftermath below.

Today, the full trailer arrived for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. There’s a lot happening in the mockumentary sequel starring Sacha Baron Cohen as the famous reporter from Kazakhstan, but there’s one particular gag towards the end of the trailer involving Vice President Mike Pence that will undoubtedly spark plenty of conversation when the movie finally comes out. In fact, this guerrilla gag actually made news back in February. Read More »
There’s a lot that the American people don’t get to see when it comes to the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America. But Pete Souza has seen more than most as official White House photographer, capturing the Commander-in-Chief at nearly every turn. Souza served for two very different administrations, that of Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama, and now a new documentary called The Way I See It introduces the man who hasn’t minced words about the differences between these two presidents from different sides of the aisle and the corrupt, pathetic, shell of a man currently in office.

President Donald Trump makes headlines every day simply by posting on Twitter. But his excessive tweeting is just a small part of what makes this man a menace, not just to the United States, but the world at large.
Unfit: The Psychology of Donald Trump is a new documentary focusing on the behavior, psyche, condition and stability of the President of the United States of America. Is a man who lashes out irrationally at press questioning his decisions as the leader of the free world fit to be president? Should a man who can barely string a coherent sentence together without the help of a teleprompter be representing an entire country and making decisions on their behalf? Watch the Unfit trailer to see what health professionals, journalists, pundits, and even prominent Republicans have to say about his questionable behavior. Read More »
Last week, we got our first glimpse at the upcoming Showtime political drama miniseries The Comey Rule. Based on former FBI director James Comey‘s book A Higher Loyalty, the miniseries focuses on Russia’s manipulation of the United States election process in 2016 and the investigation into the Trump presidency that followed after evidence pointed to collusion between his campaign higher-ups and Russian operatives.
Much of the drama in The Comey Rule comes from the contentious relationship between Comey (Jeff Daniels) and President Donald Trump (Brendan Gleeson), making it a prime piece of entertainment for the 2020 election season. But Showtime was planning on releasing the miniseries in late November, well after the election was over. However, it seems a passionate plea from director Billy Ray, and perhaps James Comey himself, has changed their mind, because it will now air before the election. Read More »
Even four years into his term, Donald Trump can’t stop obsessing over Hollywood, this time setting his sights on Oscar winner Parasite. At a Colorado rally this week, the president mocked the South Korean movie’s Best Picture win at this year’s Academy Awards, grousing over the lack of love for Gone With the Wind, a four-hour epic that Trump, who has a famously short attention span, has definitely seen. But Parasite‘s U.S. distributor Neon was quick to hit back at Trump, mocking another thing that Trump is famous for: his inability to read.

Saturday Night Live wrapped up its 44th season last month, and before the show returns for the 45th season this fall, they might have to find someone else to play the joke of a president that is Donald Trump.
Alec Baldwin has been playing Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live since October 2016 when the series was parodying the presidential debates. It seems so long ago now. But after nearly three years of playing the president, it sounds like Alec Baldwin is done with the exhausting role, saying in a recent interview, “I’m so done with that.” Read More »

This weekend we have both the Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards honoring the best in film from the year 2018. But before that, the Golden Raspberry Awards needed to announce the 2019 Razzies winners (or losers depending on how you look at it).
This year, the “honors” for Worst Picture went to the disastrous reteaming of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in Holmes & Watson. The awful comedy took home four of the awards, but the bullshit antics of Donald J. Trump and his circus cabinet wasn’t too far behind with three awards for all their nonsense featured in Michael Moore‘s documentary Fahrenheit 11/9. Find out the rest of the 2019 Razzies winners below. Read More »
Veep and In the Loop creator Armando Iannucci has built his career turning political idiocy into laugh-out-loud comedy, but now he might be tasked with plumbing the moronic depths of the current U.S. president’s brain – and it’s all thanks to Twitter.
Iannucci pitched a Donald Trump movie idea on the social media platform earlier this week, and a new report says that eight studios are already interested in turning his idea from a tweet into an actual film. Read the pitch below.
