Fox host’s classless ambush of Rudy Giuliani becomes explosive: ‘Our interview is now over!’
Rudy Giuliani exploded in fury at Fox Business Host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery after she sprang a gotcha moment on him over Sacha Baron Cohen’s film Borat 2. He was a guest on her segment to discuss the Hunter Biden scandal. Kennedy tried to discredit Giuliani over evidence that shows the Bidens were enmeshed in corrupt dealings in Ukraine and elsewhere.
Kennedy had the nerve to compare Giuliani to Christopher Steele who was behind the discredited Russian dossier scandal concocted by the Left. “I’m accusing you of acting in a capacity to Christopher Steele, and that you were going back and forth between Ukraine and the United States…” Kennedy stated and that set Giuliani off. One can hardly blame him on it either.
“Similar to a CROOK?!” Giuliani said. “What you are saying is an outrageous defamation of me, of my reputation! Every single thing is here! And I want you to look at it, and then you apologize to me!”
“I came on your show in good faith to give you evidence that has been withheld from the American people. And I get defamed. That is outrageous!” he continued.
The interview had already gone off the rails before Kennedy started her smear campaign against Giuliani. The former New York mayor was furious over her deflection on Hunter Biden and had proclaimed he was ending the interview before Kennedy sprang the Borat trap. Borat 2 is supposedly a comedy that caught Giuliani tagging behind a young actress masquerading as a 15-year-old reporter into a private room. There he allegedly patted her on the back and asked for her number and address. The film also suggests he put his hands down his pants in what he claims was an innocent shirt tuck.
“Do you regret your interaction in the Borat movie?” Kennedy asked Giuliani.
“Now that’s a stupid question isn’t it?” Giuliani heatedly answered.
“No, it’s not a stupid question at all,” Kennedy stated. “I have a 15-year-old daughter, I watched that and I was kind of grossed out by it. I’m giving you a chance to explain.”
“I called the police when I realized it was a scam,” Giuliani recounted. “I called the police and he ran away.”
“Whether you believe it or not I was tucking my shirt in, he made it appear as if it was something different.”

Giuliani claims that the girl said something compromising and offered him a message. It was then he realized it was a scam and he called the police.
“This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit,” Giuliani told the New York Post. “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,” Giuliani stated.
Giuliani went on: “I only later realized 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.”
During the Fox interview, Giuliani was livid at Kennedy over her attempt to disparage him. “Would you like to ask me any other questions to attack me?” Giuliani said.
At that point, Kennedy herself tried to end the interview. By the way, this is far from the first time that Kennedy has attacked Giuliani. She’s been doing it for years.
The media, of course, is spinning this as lurid and painting Giuliani as a letch and crazy. But anyone who knows the antics of Borat knows that he sets people up like this and I doubt that this purported incident will gain any traction with Americans.
Kennedy could have delved into the evidence that Hunter Biden was with underage girls or the Bidens’ corrupt business dealings but instead, she went after Giuliani. Not only did she plant doubt about the evidence against the Bidens, she also defamed Giuliani. Tucker Carlson, she is not. Telling, isn’t it?
