A SHOCKING video shows the moment Rudy Giuliani apparently "tried to seduce a bogus reporter and reached into his pants" in the Borat sequel.
Donald Trump's personal lawyer could be seen apparently touching his genitals as he lay on a bed in Sacha Baron Cohen's new movie.

Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova, who played Borat's on-screen daughter, conducted the bogus interview for a fake conservative news program in the film, which will be released on Friday.
Stills from the film were shared widely on social media after being published on the Daily Mail and other websites.
In the clip, "Tutar" suggests that 76-year-old Giuliani join her for a drink in a hotel suite – but it's rigged with hidden cameras.
The former mayor of New York City can be seen fiddling with his untucked shirt and reaching into his trousers as Bakalova removed his microphone.
They're interrupted by the film's protagonist Borat Sagdiyev, who barges in and declares that his 15-year-old daughter Tutar is "old for you.”
However, the Editorial Director of Motherjones Ben Dreyfuss said Giuliani didn't have his hands down his pants and was merely adjusting his shirt.
"I have now seen the scene with Rudy Giuliani and though it is creepy for other reasons it is being described on twitter in a false way," Dreyfuss said.
"He does not have his hand down his pants in a sexual way. He is tucking his shirt back in after she untucks it removing his mic."
"The scene is confusingly edited for comedic purposes which makes sense since this is a comedy film and not a 60 Minutes expose," he added.
"It would be good to keep that in mind in light of the flattening of media where everything can seem like everything else."
Beforehand, Giuliani can be seen drinking scotch, coughing loudly, and failing to socially distance from the person he thinks is a Russian reporter.
He can be heard praising the president's Covid-19 response saving one million Americans – before theoretically agreeing to eat a bat with his fake interviewer.
Dreyfuss noted that the "bat thing" was a joke which Giuliani agreed to out of politeness.
In the hilarious footage, Giuliani appears to think he is being courted by Bakalova, 24, who is plays Borat's child posing as a right-wing journalist.
Giuliani's representatives have yet to comment publicly on the matter, which has been widely reported on by The Daily Beast, Page Six, and The Guardian.
On July 7, Giuliani said he called the NYPD to report a man wearing a "crazy" outfit.
“This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit,” Giuliani said, according to Page Six.
“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 shakedown, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away."
“I only later realised 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.”
At the time, NYC cops found no crime was committed.
In the highly anticipated movie, Borat is on a mission from the Kazakh government to bribe an ally of Trump in order to ingratiate his country with the White House.
Its description reads: "To be more specific, this is the Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Chenqui!"
The premise of the hilarious flick is Borat gifting his teenage daughter to Vice President Mike Pence.
Before the Borat footage emerged, Giuliani had obtained a hard drive from Hunter Biden's MacBook Pro, which contained unverified emails relating to his Ukrainian dealings.
The leaked data also included a "compromising" video of Joe Biden's son allegedly smoking crack while engaging in a sex act.
But the mortifying Borat footage may be seen as an attempt to undermine his credibility, noted The Guardian.
The film was released on Amazon Prime two weeks before the election.
The first Borat film made $262m in 2006 and won a Golden Globe for Baron Cohen and will be released on October 23.
