As President Donald Trump’s legal problems got worse and worse this week, his critics are reacting with glee. Among these is comedic actor Sacha Baron Cohen, famous for his outrageous characters and their interviews of unsuspecting targets.
Today, Cohen took to Twitter, taunting the president and reviving a famous character of his: Ali G.
The content mockingly commends Trump for everything from his business acumen to his endowment, reading:
2 my main man President Ronald Trump, check out when you colluded wiv me a few years ago and u corrected all dem stupid fake news scientists who said dat humanoids have only been around for 300,000 years.
Yesterday it was proven in de courts dat u iz a crook – respeck! U iz a genuine gangsta! And it turns out most of your crew are too innit (4 guilty so far). U iz de Suge Knight of world leaders innit.
Also nuff respeck for bonin all dem pornstars – but why iz u payin dem money to keep quiet about it? We know it aint coz u haz got a tiny dong, u told everyone it woz massive on da telly, and one fing u ain’t, is a liar. Anyway, peace out, u iz a hinspiration for young people, showing dem u can become President of America without having to give up a life of crime. Bigupyaself O.G.
Twitter was quick to applaud him for adding insult to Trump’s injury.
Thank you, Sir! The last time you trolled politicians, you exposed the Tea Party and brought us President Obama. Please don’t stop until this orange shitgibbon is harpooned by the National Guard.

They were also skeptical of Trump’s claim that humans have been around for hundreds of millions of years.
Wait, 100M years ago?

Hundreds of millions of years ago?? Haha. Rocks. Hahaha.
Btw doesn’t some of his #TrumpCult believers think the earth only to be about 6000 years old? They won’t be happy with this.

And remembered other times when he’d trolled Trump.

Cohen—the comedian, not the lawyer this time—recently created a stir in Washington, especially on the right, with Cohen’s latest series on Showtime, Who is America?. Disguising himself as various characters, Who is America? documents the incognito Cohen interviewing various politicians and activists—often leading to their humiliation and, in at least one case, a resignation.
The series has stoked a lot of anger from Republicans…
