Tomorrow is election day, which means that we all have a degree of fear that verges on total panic. Don’t worry – Borat Sagdiyev, Kazakhstan’s fourth best journalist, has prepared an urgent video statement with important information to help voters tomorrow. In particular, he suggests that women stay at home and let men vote or that Donald Trump lose the election.

Sacha Baron Cohen, the comedic chameleon portraying Borat, today shared the 1-minute satirical video on Borat Sagdiyev’s official Twitter account. In the video, Baron Cohen gives a scathing recitation of Trump’s troubled story about women and women’s rights and highlights the 26 women who have accused the current president of sexual assault. He also highlights Trump’s support for policies threatening to abolish legal access to abortion, as well as the enormous sum Trump staff paid adult film star Stormy Daniels to keep their sexual encounter with the former reality TV host a secret. Borat combines this with a stern warning that losing Trump would expose women to other “dangerous ideas” such as honesty, fairness and consent.
Baron Cohen launched an attack on the Trump administration in the past few weeks. It’s been a staple in the headlines since its release Borate episode Borat Subsequent movie film two weeks ago on Amazon, where he uses the character’s cartoonish ignorance to shed light on the misogyny, racism, and authoritarianism of Trump’s America. The new video continues its satirical crusade, and like the new film, it’s fun and frustrating in equal parts because the Borat character is far from parody.
