Rudy Giuliani: “At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate”

Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani has dismissed as a “complete fabrication” a clip from a new Borat film appearing to show him with hands down his trousers.

“I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment,” fthe former New York City mayor tweeted.

He was referring to an episode in the film, starring UK comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, where he is interviewed by an actress posing as a TV journalist.

The actress plays Borat’s daughter in the comedy Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

The film – which is due to be released on Friday – is the sequel to Cohen’s 2006 hit Borat, where he played a fictional reporter from Kazakhstan.

In the follow-up filmed earlier this year, Baron Cohen again tries to ambush US politicians and members of the public.

Trump’s California Fundraiser Is Driving the Beach Boys Even Further Apart

On Sunday, for somewhere between $2,800 and $150,000, you could go see the Beach Boys play a Donald Trump fundraiser in Newport Beach, California. The idea was to help solve a cash flow problem for Trump—“no one really thinks about how Orange County, California, is an ATM machine,” Jon Fleischman, a former Republican state official, told the Los Angeles Times. Whether or not the event raised enough money to meaningfully help Trump, it has at least revived an intra-Beach Boys rift.

The Beach Boys’ touring group is currently led by Mike Love, but doesn’t include all the members most associated with the band’s best-known work. “We have absolutely nothing to do with the Trump benefit today in Newport Beach. Zero,” Brian Wilson and Al Jardine told Variety through a spokesperson. “We didn’t even know about it and were very surprised to read about it in the Los Angeles Times.

‘The Spider’ Spotlights How Trump’s Presidency Helped Expose Jeffrey Epstein

As the presidential election enters the home stretch, and Joe Biden leads in the polls by a comfortable margin, it’s still anyone’s guess as to whether President Trump will win another four years in the Oval Office. But out of all the scandals that have plagued Trump in his first term, one of the most memorable—his ties to accused underage sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein—might also be the biggest, yet most mysterious, given all of the unanswered questions left after Epstein died by suicide in August 2019.

In his new book, The Spider: Inside the Criminal Web of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, Barry Levine, the former 17-year executive editor of the National Enquirer, takes an exhaustively detailed look at the life, death, and alleged crimes of Epstein, along with

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Says Trump’s Inciting ‘Domestic Terrorism’ Against Her

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer accused President Donald Trump on Sunday of “inciting” domestic terrorism by repeatedly attacking her at his rallies, calling the “Lock her up!” chants the president has encouraged even in the wake of a kidnapping plot against her “disturbing.”

During a rally in Michigan on Saturday, the president appeared to dismiss what cops and the FBI have called a violent, militia-infused scheme to kidnap and possibly even kill the governor, saying, “I guess they said she was threatened.” With Trump taking aim at her over the state’s coronavirus restrictions, the crowd chanted “lock her up,” prompting the president to seemingly join in.

“Lock them all up,” he said in response to the chants.

“This is exactly the rhetoric that has put me, my family, and other government officials’ lives in danger while we try to save the lives of our fellow Americans. It needs to stop,” Whitmer

Trump’s Taking Down Names as Republicans Like Mitch McConnell, Susan Collins Start Jumping Ship

Over the past few weeks, Donald Trump and his allies have kept close tabs on prominent conservatives the president believes are gearing up to throw him under the bus in the event he loses his bid for re-election.

Two individuals who have spoken to Trump say the president has expressed suspicion that members of his own party believe he will be defeated by Joe Biden. That sense of paranoia has been fed by the president’s aides and confidants, who have flagged news coverage for him of Republican politicians either openly criticizing his conduct or else trying to distance themselves from a looming possible electoral bloodbath.

According to one of the sources with direct knowledge, the president is already contemplating retribution.

“[The president] said something to the effect of: If you’re backing away from him now, don’t bother coming back for a favor when he wins,” the other source said. “He

Aaron Sorkin takes on Trump’s America

CLOSE

Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin explains how he came to direct his 12-years-in-the-making film “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and what he hopes audiences get from it. (Oct. 9)

AP Entertainment

A year ago, Jeremy Strong was marching down Michigan Avenue with his co-stars in Aaron Sorkin’s new Netflix drama “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” taking the same route as their historical counterparts who protested at the 1968 Democratic Convention.

Chanting “No justice, no peace!” felt powerful in the moment, Strong says.

“But at the same time, we had no way of knowing just how timely it would be and that we would be marching six, eight months later chanting those same things on streets in Los Angeles, streets in Minneapolis, streets in Atlanta, streets in Kenosha (and) streets in Seattle,” he said.

“Chicago 7” (now streaming on Netflix) is primarily set during the bloody 1968 clash between protesters
