But years ago, you know, he tried to scam me. And I was the only one who said no way. That’s a phoney guy. And I don’t find him funny. I don’t know anything about him other than he tried to scam me. He came in as a BBC – British broadcasting anchor. To me, he was a creep. Thank you all,” Trump said.
Sacha Baron Cohen, replying to the same in standard Sacha style in a tweet wrote, “Donald — I appreciate the free publicity for Borat! I admit I don’t find you funny either. But yet the whole world laughs at you. I’m always looking for people to play racist buffoons, and you’ll need a job after Jan. 20. Let’s talk!”
