President Trump has lashed out at comedian Sasha Baron Cohen after his new Borat movie left the White House red-faced.
The mockumentary film - titled Borat Subsequent Moviefilm - features multiple scenes in which the titular character's daughter, played by actress Mara Bakalova, embarrasses Trump and his associates.
In one scene, filmed last month, Bakalova allegedly manages to get onto the grounds of the White House 'with no need for a security test or a COVID test'.
Another scene features Bakalova taking part in a sting of Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani. The former Mayor of New York City was seemingly filmed in a compromising position with the 24-year-old starlet inside a hotel room.
Trump is less than impressed with the new film and it's headline star, telling reporters on Air Force One late Friday: ''I don't find him [Cohen] funny. To me, he's a creep.'

Cohen is known for dressing up as different characters in a bid to dupe high-profile stars into making embarrassing statements on camera.
Back in the mid-2000s, the comedian dressed up as his character Ali G and met with Trump. However, the billionaire businessman quickly realized he was being set up.
'Years ago, you know, he tried to scam me. And I was the only one who said, "No way. That’s a phony guy."'
'I don’t know anything about him other than he tried to scam me.'

promo footage from the new Borat movie which showed actress Mara Bakalova was able to gain admittance to the White House last month – making it steps from the Oval Office.
Trump very careful who he let into his events and house. No Covid test necessary - High 5! pic.twitter.com/Kf5gGk3n2M— Borat (@BoratSagdiyev) October 23, 2020
DailyMail.com was present at the White House when OAN correspondent Chanel Rion conducted an interview of the actress while being trailed back and forth by a camera and sound crew on September 16.
The film character Borat tweeted out footage of the day-trip Friday, mocking what the account cast as a security breach. 'Trump very careful who he let into his events and house. No Covid test necessary - High 5!'
He attached footage of Bakalova, who in the movie plays Borat's daughter Tutar Sagdiyev, being interviewed by Rion.
The Borat character mocks the conservative network as 'most rigorous news source in America,' and includes footage of Trump calling on 'OAN' and Rion claiming to have uncovered 'multiple crimes' in Ukraine committed by the Bidens.
The White House visit is one of three encounters which span months. Bakalova - who at the time was brunette - was both at a Trump reception for supporters in Phoenix and shook hands with Don Jr. at the CPAC conservative conference, both in February. She visited the White House - this time with blond hair - in September, two months after the Giuliuani encounter. Bakalov is 24, but her character in the movie is his 15-year-old daughter.
The footage of her encounters with Trump and the first family were released on Twitter and are not in the movie itself, suggesting that there may be more material coming from Baron Cohen's production team.
The Borat character posted footage of actress Maria Bakalova, who plays his daughter in Borat 2, being 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 from Donald Trump, his son Don Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle at a reception for supporters on February 19. She changes from brunette to blonde in the course of the movie
The Borat Twitter account sent out the clip hours after the release of his new film
The crew didn't come with the correspondent, and is believed to be associated with the interview subject and actress.
The film clip raises serious questions about security and safety at the White House.
September 20 was just days before the superspreader unveiling of SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett, and a time when people coming on to White House property were supposed to be tested for coroanvirus.
But in the clip, narrated in character by Baron Cohen, he said: 'I know this because they take my daughter into the White House,' he said – as the short video switches to footage shot on the north lawn with Bakalova. She also tours the White House briefing room, which is right outside the West Wing offices used by the president and his staff.
FEBRUARY 19, 2020
Maria Bakalova, 24, a Bulgarian national who is playing Borat's 15-year-old daughter Tutar Sagdiyev, is filmed at a reception for Trump's supporters in a small conference room before a mega-rally in Phoenix, AZ. On stage with the president are his son Don Jr. and Don Jr.'s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, before the camera pans to Bakalova, at this point a brunette, clapping exuberantly
Sacha Baron Cohen, playing Borat but dressed up as President Donald Trump in a 56-inch fat suit, runs into the main hall at CPAC where Vice President Mike Pence is speaking. Baron Cohen is carrying Bakalova and shouts: 'Michael Pennis! I brought a girl for you!' He is escorted out but not arrested and his cover is not busted
At the same event Bakalova introduces herself to Don Jr. telling him she is 'excited' to meet him
Bakalova arranges to 'interview' Rudy Giuliani, the president's personal attorney, at the Mark Hotel in New York. After the interview, she invites him to drink Scotch in the bedroom of the hotel suite where the interview took place, where he lies down on the bed. After telling her he will give her his 'phone number and address,' he touches her above the waist and undoes his pants. Baron Cohen rushes in shouting: 'She 15. She too old for you.' Giuliani flees and his security guard calls the police. Giuliani tells the New York Post about some of the encounter that day but leaves out the part where he goes into the bedroom and has his hand down his pants
Bakalova - who is now blond - is seen at the White House with OAN correspondent Chanel Rion, going into the Brady Press Briefing Room where Trump that day delivers a COVID briefing and walking close to the Rose Garden. The president is in the West Wing as she is filmed speaking to Rion walking the grounds of the White House
'No need for security test or COVID test. They boring,' he said.
It is unclear how an actress would be able to access the executive mansion in the identity of her character - and particularly given that Baklova is Bulgarian, not American. DailyMail.com has asked the White House for comment.
The Borat clip identifies the White House clip as September 20, although DailyMail.com obtained footage of the encounter on Sept. 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 has opened a feud with the White House Correspondents Association over their attempt to curb numbers of journalists on the property during the pandemic.
Rion has partied at Mar-a-Lago and boasts close ties to Giuliani - ironically the target of the most high-profile stunt by Borat.
However the film crew which recorded the interview did not come with Rion, and is believed to be associated with the interview subject and actress.
At the White House, Bakalova asks Rion: 'Why is all of the fake journalists for the left, and none on the right?' DailyMail.com has asked Rion and OANN for comment.
The scenes at the White House got cut and didn't make it into the movie, titled 'Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.'
She is shown clapping wildly while the president speaks. The event appears to be a reception for supporters before a rally in Phoenix's Veterans Memorial Coliseum on February 19.
On stage, Trump is flanked by his son and Guilfoyle, who addressed the rally he held that evening.
In a different cut, she shakes hands with the president's eldest son and proclaims herself 'a little bit nervous' and 'excited to meet you.'
The footage with Don Jr. appears to have come during a Turning Point USA event during the Conservative Political Action Conference in late February.
'I'm a little bit nervous but I'm very excited to meet you,' she tells Don Jr.
'I appreciate it. Good to meet you,' he replies.
At the same conference, Sacha Baron Cohen, playing Borat but dressed up as President Donald Trump, ran into the hall where Vice President Mike Pence was speaking carrying Bakalova. 'Michael Pennis! I brought a girl for you!' Cohen yelled.
This scene made the movie, while the footage from the promo released Friday with Rion did not
It was the second time the movie ripped through U.S. politics, after the release of footage showing Borat's 'daughter' in a hotel room with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
In one scene, Giuliani falls back on a bed after she removes his microphone after getting pranked into an interview. He briefly puts his hands in his pants, but the former New York mayor said he was simply tucking in his shirt after it got messed up when the microphone was being removed.
First family encounter: Her greeting with the president's son happened at a Turning Point USA event that was part of the Conservative Political Action Conference, where Cohen dressed as Trump and crashed a Mike Pence speech
A DailyMail.com reporter spotted the unusual encounter at the White House on September 16, with 'Borat's daughter' talking to Chanel Rion, the controversial OAN correspondent. The Borat twitter account labeled it September 20 'Year of Hawk 435'
Walk and talk: In the course of her time at the White House, accompanied by a camera and sound crew, Maria Bakalova, posing as Borat's daughter, also walked outside the north doors of the Palm Room, which leads to the Rose Garden
The actress was trailed by two cameras during the interview at the WHite House on September 16, which didn't make it into the final film
She visited the White House on a day Trump displayed charts intended to show a drop in spread of the coronavirus. Dr. Scott Atlas also was there
Baron Cohen hit back at Giuliani's claims that the Borat honey trap video is a 'complete fabrication', saying Friday 'heaven knows what he has done with other female journalists in hotel rooms' - as scenes from the full film show the president's 76-year-old attorney patting a young woman on her hip.
After a snippet of the scene emerged earlier this week, Giuliani said he was only tucking in his shirt after removing his recording equipment and insisted that he was
