An actress posing as the daughter of Sacha Baron Cohen in the new Borat film was able to enter the White House last month – she left the Oval Office and toured the press rooms and the grounds north of the White House.
The comedian tweeted Promotional footage of the encounter hours after his new film was released, including footage of a staged encounter with Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani, which the comedian defended as a "honey trap".
DailyMail.com was present at the White House when OAN correspondent Chanel Rion interviewed the actress on Sept. 16 while she was being dragged back and forth by a camera and sound crew.
The film character Borat tweeted footage from Friday's day trip and mocked what the account described as a security breach. & # 39; Trump very careful who he let into his events and house. No Covid Test Required – High 5! & # 39;
He included footage of the Bulgarian actress Mara Bakalova, who plays Borat's daughter Tutar Sagdiyev in the film and is interviewed by Rion.
The Borat character mocks the conservative network as "America's toughest news source" and contains footage of Trump calling out "OAN" and Rion, claiming to have exposed "multiple crimes" committed by the Bidens in Ukraine.
The White House visit is one of three encounters that span months. Bakalova – who was brunette at the time – both attended a Trump supporter reception in Phoenix and both shook hands with Don Jr. at the Conservative CPAC conference in February. She visited the White House – this time with blonde hair – in September, two months after meeting Giuliuani. Bakalov is 24, but her character in the film is his 15-year-old daughter.
The footage of her encounters with Trump and the first family was posted on Twitter and is not in the film itself, suggesting that more of the footage may have come from Baron Cohen's production team.
The Borat character posted footage of actress Maria Bakalova, who plays his daughter in Borat 2 and was interviewed by OANN's Chanel Rion at the White House. A Marine stationed behind them indicates that the President was in the west wing

Applauding the President: This is Maria Bakalova as the camera pans of Donald Trump, his son Don Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle at a reception for supporters on February 19th. During the course of the film, she changes from brunette to blonde
Borat's Twitter account posted the clip hours after his new movie was released
The crew did not come with the correspondent and is believed to be related to the interview subject and the actress.
The film raises serious questions about security in the White House.
September 20 was just days before the super-spreader unveiled SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett, and a time when people who came to the White House property were about to be tested for coroan virus.
But in the clip told by Baron Cohen, he said, "I know because they're taking my daughter to the White House," he said – when the short video switches to footage shot with Bakalova on the North Lawn. She also tours the White House meeting room, which is just outside the west wing offices used by the President and his staff.
'No security test or COVID test required. You're boring, ”he said.
It is unclear how an actress can access the Executive Villa in her character's identity – and especially given the fact that Baklova is Bulgarian and not American. DailyMail.com has asked the White House for a comment.
The Borat clip identifies the White House clip as September 20, although DailyMail.com received footage of the encounter on September 16.
She may have been a guest of Rion, a controversial figure who crashed White House COVID briefings and refused to wear a mask and who started a feud with the White House Correspondents Association over her attempt to keep the number of journalists on the property during the year to stem the pandemic.
Rion has partied in Mar-a-Lago and is closely associated with Giuliani – ironically, the target of Borat's most famous stunt.
However, the film crew that recorded the interview did not come with Rion and it is believed to be related to the interview subject and the actress.
In the White House, Bakalova asks Rion: "Why are all fake journalists for the left and none for the right?" DailyMail.com has contacted Rion and OANN for comment.
The scenes in the White House were cut and did not make it into the film entitled "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm".
The clip then shows Bakalova in a dark haired character attending an event with President Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle.
She claps wildly while the President speaks. The event appears to be a reception for supporters prior to a rally at the Phoenix Memorial Memorial Coliseum on February 19.
On stage, Trump is flanked by his son and Guilfoyle, who turned to the rally he held that evening.
In another cut, she shakes hands with the eldest son of the president and declares that she is "a little nervous" and "excited to meet you".
The footage with Don Jr. appears to have been taken during a Turning Point USA event during the Conservative Political Action Conference in late February.
"I'm a little nervous, but I'm really excited to meet you," she tells Don Jr.
& # 39; I appreciate it. Nice to meet you, ”he replies.
At the same conference, Sacha Baron Cohen, who played Borat but was disguised as President Donald Trump, ran into the hall where Vice President Mike Pence was speaking with Bakalova. & # 39; Michael Pennis! I brought a girl for you! & # 39; Yelled Cohen.
That scene made the movie, while the footage from the promo released with Rion on Friday didn't
It was the second time the film was ripped through US politics after footage of Borat's & # 39; daughter & # 39; were released in a hotel room with Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani.
In one scene, Giuliani falls back on a bed after removing his microphone after being involved in an interview. He pokes his hands briefly, but the former New York mayor said he simply pulled his shirt on after it got messed up when the microphone was removed.
First Family Meeting: Her greeting with the president's son came at a Turning Point USA event, part of the Conservative Political Action Conference, where Cohen dressed up as Trump and crashed a speech by Mike Pence
A DailyMail.com reporter discovered the unusual encounter at the White House on Sept. 16 when & # 39; Borat's daughter & # 39; spoke to Chanel Rion, the controversial OAN correspondent. Borat's Twitter account dubbed it the "Year of Hawk 435" on September 20th.
Walking and talking: During her time in the White House, Maria Bakalova, who pretends to be Borat's daughter, accompanied by a camera and sound crew, went to the north doors of the palm tree room that leads to the rose garden
The actress was followed by two cameras during the interview at WHite House on Sept. 16, which did not make it into the final film
Baron Cohen hit back on Giuliani's claims that the borate honey trap video was "a complete invention" and said Friday, "Heaven knows what he's done with other female journalists in hotel rooms" – like scenes from the entire film The 76th -year tenure of the president show -old lawyer patting a young woman on the hip.
After a segment of the scene surfaced earlier this week, Giuliani said he didn't put on his shirt until after removing his tape recorder and insisted it was never "inappropriate".
In an interview about ABCs Good morning America On Friday, Baron Cohen was asked to respond after Giuliani accused him of being an "ice cold liar".
"I would say that if the president's lawyer finds out what he has done appropriately there, heaven knows what he has done with other journalists in hotel rooms," said Baron Cohen.
“I urge everyone to watch the film. It is what it is, he did what he did. Make up your own mind. It was pretty clear to us. & # 39;
His comments came when the entire controversial scene surfaced on Amazon Prime the Friday following the release of the film Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.
The scene, filmed at the Mark Hotel in July, shows Giuliani sitting down with 24-year-old actress Maria Bakalova, posing as a conservative reporter, for an interview about the Trump administration's response to COVID-19.
During the scene, Giuliani answered several questions about the coronavirus, including how many lives Trump had saved because of his handling of the pandemic.
In the interview scene, the woman was flirtatious with Giuliani and could repeatedly see his knee touching.
She also told him he was "one of her greatest heroes" and that she felt like she was in a fairy tale. She once said she felt like Melania Trump.
After being interrupted by Baron Cohen's Borat character, who was disguised as a sound engineer, the scene shows Giuliani following the woman into the hotel room and asking, "Should we have a drink in the bedroom?"
The 30-second scene in the bedroom cuts repeatedly to different images from the various hidden cameras. It's not clear how much of this was edited together to portray a particular plot.
It shows Giuliani asking for her phone number and address. This sound is played through a take where the woman removes her microphone and pats her on her lower back.
He can then be seen lying on the bed putting on his shirt after she helped him remove his recorder.

Baron Cohen picked up on Rudy Giuliani's claims on Friday that the borate honey trap video was "a complete invention" and said, "Heaven knows what he did to other journalists in hotel rooms."
In the scene, President Trump's personal attorney is lying on the bed with his hand tucking his shirt while the woman stands nearby
Speaking about the scene during Friday's GMA interview, Baron Cohen said he was in hiding in the hotel room, keeping an eye on what was going on.
"I was pretty worried about her during the scene," said Baron Cohen.
After a segment of the scene surfaced earlier this week, Giuliani said he didn't put on his shirt until after removing his tape recorder and insisted it was never "inappropriate".
“We built a hideout that I would hide in during the scene. I monitored it by text. As the producer, I am responsible for looking after the main actor. & # 39;
Bakalova, who joined Baron Cohen for the interview, said she felt safe all the time.
After a clip of the scene surfaced this week before the film was released, Giuliani declared it was a "hit job" and a "total invention".
"The Borat video is a complete invention," he tweeted.
“I put my shirt on after taking off the tape recorder. At no point before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen suggests otherwise, he is an ice cold liar.
"This is an effort to defuse my relentless exposure of the crime and depravity of Joe Biden and his entire family."
When Giuliani spoke on WABC on his weekly radio program on Wednesday, he doubled that he was only wearing his shirt.
"I'll put my shirt on, I assure you, that's all I've done," he said.
Giuliani said he went to an interview he thought was "legitimate".
"I did the interview with the young woman who was new to the interview and I was nice to her," he said. "At one point she explained some problems I was having, I actually prayed with her."
When he got up to leave, he said he was wearing his jacket.
“I was fully clothed at all times and had to take off the electronic devices. When the electronics came off, part of it was in the back and my shirt was pulling out a little, coming out a little even though my clothes were completely on, ”he said.
He said he realized something was wrong when the woman asked if he would like a massage.
"She says something about" Do I want a massage? "I realize now that this is a facility, and I'll call my security guard Brian, who is right outside the door," Giuliani said. "And then all of a sudden the crazy Sacha Baron Cohen runs in with a cloak and he screams and shouts all kinds of stupid things. "
The former New York mayor called the police after the encounter, but there is no evidence that an investigation has opened.
Giuliani spoke to Page 6 of the New York Post about the July encounter but made no mention of the bedroom aspect.
He has since argued that calling the police proved he was an innocent party.
"If I had done something wrong I would not have called the police and if he had done something right he would not have run away," said Giuliani.

Borat Follow-up film: Amazing bribe handed over to the American regime to support the once glorious nation of Kazakhstan
Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani isn't the only person authorized to finger-watch Borat 2. For the rest of us, too, this is sometimes the only correct answer to a comedy that doesn't reach the limits of taste so much as loot it over the edge of a cliff.
The setup is the same as the 2006 mockumentary that first introduced Sacha Baron Cohen's fictional Kazakh journalist into an unsuspecting world.
Baron Cohens Borat, this time accompanied by his teenage daughter Tutar (Maria Bakalova), travels through America fooling real people into believing that he is the real article.
For years since the events of 2006, he has broken stones into the gulag to shame his country by making it a global mockery.
But now he's received a mission – and with it a chance to save his reputation. Again and again he convinces people that he really brought Tutar as a present for "Vice Premier Mikhail Pence", the deputy of the great "Prime Minister McDonald Trump", to redeem his distant home from the eyes of the "USA and A".
Baron Cohen breaks the unwritten rules of comedy again
Vice President Mike Pence didn't know it then, but when he gave his speech at the CPAC earlier this year, he actually attended a secret sequel to Borat (pictured)
The results – including a scene in which he disguised himself as Trump interrupts Pence's address to a Republican rally – are again inflammatory funny and almost unobservably unpleasant.
There is another scene where Borat and Tutar attend a debutant ball in the city of Macon, southern Georgia.
She is solemnly as a student at & # 39; Grand Canyon University & # 39; Introduced and studied & # 39; cage maintenance and electronics with a focus on VCR repairs & # 39 ;.
Just as you marvel at their XX-size gullibility and process the sheer improbability of proud fathers and their daughters of southern beauty dressed up to nine and walking through this absurd social rigmarol in the 21st century while the laughter gushes again in yours Hals at the drama of the Kazakh duo who went down to perform their fertility dance, it curdled into something completely different.
Baron Cohen breaks the unwritten rules of comedy again. Is it outrage? Horror? Disgust? Suppressed hysteria? You have to decide for yourself.
In a way, this is Baron Cohen's genius. Once again, he has mastered a movie (although directed by Jason Woliner) that is beyond the skill or daring of others.
He turns everyone he and Tutar meet into patsies, none other than Giuliani, the 76-year-old former mayor of New York City, who gives this committed foreign girl an interview in a hotel suite – and then finds herself in a situation that sees horribly compromising unless it is a cinematic manual skill.

I've seen it twice already and still not quite sure what I saw. In any case, the 24-year-old Bulgarian actress Bakalova is incredibly good – occasionally even staging Baron Cohen himself.
Just like the original, Borat 2 is boldly brilliant in that at first it looks like a Mickey take from a backward, former Soviet republic when America is really the only object of ridicule.
This film is specifically about catching the die-hard Trump supporters and far-right conspiracy theorists who pick up on more than a few others on their satirical web, such as a cosmetic surgeon who loves to puff 15-year-old Tutar's breasts just want to be the next "Queen Melania".
Most of them inadvertently plot in their own ridiculousness, though there are times – like a kind Holocaust survivor in a synagogue – when your heart runs out. Not everyone deserves to be one of Borat's victims.
Likewise, not everyone will want to see this film. If the TV show Game For A Laugh made you wince, it's definitely not for you.
The same is true if you think everyone should let their beliefs and ways of life go without being played as a fool by a subversive Englishman with an open camera and political agenda.
Even so, there have been moments when it made me laugh more than any other movie in ages, possibly since the original Borat.
And three applause for its topicality. MeToo sensitivities are cheekily addressed when Tutar realizes that the oppression of women in their own country – where it is anchored in law that men are not allowed to love their daughters as much as their sons – is not the case everywhere.
And there is an inspired twist that affects the Covid-19 pandemic.
But maybe I've already given too much away. If you loved the original Borat, you will be amazed again. This one is even better.
If you thought it was gross, vulgar, and indescribably childish, then this is a good deal worse.
Borat 2 is available starting today on Amazon Prime Video.
