Borat Holds Paris Press Conference, Only Offends a Few Million Around the Globe

by at . Comments

Borat is at it again.

No, he wasn't kicked off White House grounds this time. He was holding a press conference in Paris that began: "Good afternoon gentlemen and prostitutes. How much? I have dollars."

As Lindsay Lohan probably sat back and did the math in her head, the alter ego of Sacha Baron Cohen, was across the ocean to promote his new film, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. In it, he takes shots at Uzbekistan, President Bush and American women in general.

Having just toured America, the fictional TV reporter told the press:

"We in Kazakhstan admire very much Premier Bush. He is very wise man but not only this, he is very strong," said Borat . "Although perhaps not as strong as his father, Barbara. Tough guy. Like John Waynes."

Or Justin Timberlake in this picture.

The character has been butting heads with Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev and causing criticism with his racist and sexist remarks - more of which he made yesterday.

"My best memories is the very nice peoples I meet, but also some of the shocking things I see in America," said Borat, "For example, womens is allowed, in America, to drive a car. It is crazy. We say in my country to let a woman drive a car is like to let a monkey fly a plane. Very dangerous, yes?"

Right. You also could've gone with the "give a mirror to Anna Nicole Smith" metaphor, but yours works, as well.
