*Rudy Giuliani has revealed that he called the police after Sacha Baron Cohen tried to prank him at The Mark Hotel in New York City on July 7. 

Cohen was reportedly wearing a pink bikini when he interrupted a spoof interview with the 

76-year-old former Mayor of New York City, per PEOPLE

Giuliani said: “This  guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit,” he explained. “It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn’t what I would call distractingly attractive.”

“This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police,” Giuliani said. “He then ran away.”

He added: “I only later realized it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn’t get me.”

Despite the surreal incident, Giuliani admits he’s a fan of Sacha, best-known for the satirical characters Borat and Ali G.

“I am a fan of some of his movies, ‘Borat’ in particular, because I’ve been to Kazakhstan,” he said.

Cohen most recently disguised himself to lead a racist singalong from the stage at a June 27 right-wing rally in Olympia, Washington, which was reportedly attended by more than 500 people, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Obama, what we gotta do? / Inject him with the Wuhan flu” and “Corona is a liberal hoax” said Cohen at the event.

In another video, the Cohen, pretending to be the lead singer of a band, concludes, “thank you very much, I’ve got to be going,” as someone in the crowd yells “go home racist” through a bullhorn. 

“A lot of people don’t like this singer that’s up there, and so people are starting to rebel,” a woman on the video says. 

The reaction from the crowd prompted the band to quickly exit the stage.

*The final 2020 presidential debate will go down Thursday, October 22 (9 pm ET) at Belmont University in Nashville, TN, and Trump has already fired shots at Kristen Welker, the moderator of the event. 

Trump claims Welker is crazy and biased in favour of Biden, calling her “terrible and unfair” in a tweet on Saturday. 

“She’s always been terrible & unfair, just like most of the Fake News reporters, but I’ll still play the game. The people know! How’s Steve Scully doing?” Trump tweeted along with a retweet from son Donald Trump Jr., linking Welker and her family to prominent Democrats.

According to Fox News,Welker’s family has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democrats over the years. In 2012, the veteran journalist and her family spent Christmas at the White House with the Obamas.

Trump’s comment about Steve Scully is in reference to when then C-SPAN journalist was suspended for allegedly lying about his Twitter account being hacked. The incident occurred before he was set to moderate the Oct. 15 debate between Trump and Biden. The event was ultimately canceled.

Welker briefly deactivated her Twitter account after Scully claimed he had been hacked, according to the report. 

Earlier this year, Welker, an NBC News White House correspondent, was tapped to serve as the new weekend co-anchor of the “Today” program.

Welker started her career at the network as a “Today” intern more than 20 years ago and now she replaced Sheinelle Jones as weekend co-anchor with fellow NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander.

“To have come here as an intern for the Today show, to shoot that reel… I looked so serious,” Welker said after watching an old clip of herself reading the news for her demo reel at age 21. “To be terrified like that and then to come and sit at this desk, to sit next to my friend Peter Alexander every Saturday, it is the honor of a lifetime.”

Welker will be the first Black woman to moderate the presidential debate.

*Author and legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended by The New Yorker for masturbating on a Zoom video chat between staffers and WNYC radio last week.

Toobin says he did not realize his video was on.

“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers,” Toobin told Motherboard.

“I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” he added.

As noted by vice.com, Toobin’s Conde Nast email has been disabled and he is also taking some time from CNN as the network’s chief legal analyst.

“Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted,” CNN said in a statement.

*Good Lawd! We don’t know if DL Hughley and Ice Cube are or were ever friends. If they are, it’s going to be interesting to see what goes down the next time these two are in the same room together.

We say that because Hughley is not at all happy with Cube for making his much talked about hook up with Donald trump and his “Platinum Plan” for Black Americans and has no problem saying so.

“You’ve seen Black person after Black person after Black person ruin themselves on the alter of Trump with nothing in return and Ice Cube is the latest one., says Hughley, speaking on his daily radio show.

He continued:

“The ‘Platinum Plan.’ When I heard it , it was insulting from the gate. Why didn’t they have the ‘spinning rims plan?'”

On top of that, Hughley straight out says  Trump typically meets with black entertainers instead of true political leaders and people with experience because he views them as folly.

“We have a 3rd wave of COVID coming and he’s meeting with the dude that gave us 3 ‘Fridays'”

Hughley points out that the right people are rarely in the room.
