"Sacha Baron Cohen, go to school, learn about being amusing", Trump adds.

Sacha Baron Cohen, the comedy genius behind Borat and Ali G, is taking aim at Donald Trump for his next project.

Trump once boasted: 'I never fall for scams.

The clip opens with footage of Trump managing to string some words together in a vaguely coherent fashion, though the content of what he's saying-even for those unfamiliar with Cohen and Trump's history-is null. Just last week, former Howard Stern sidekick "Stuttering" John Melendez announced via Twitter that he successfully prank-called President Trump on Air Force One by impersonating Sen.

The caustic snippets in the video refer back to an incident in 2012, when Cohen crashed the Oscars as part of the promotion for his movie The Dictator, and dumped "ashes" onto E!'s Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.

Some fans stunned at LeBron James' massive deal with Lakers
And while he has always been compared to Michael Jordan, Johnson is the one whose game more closely resembles his own. The 33-year-old James is coming off a season in which he averaged 27.5 points per game with the Cleveland Cavaliers .

It is unclear whether the new show would have a deeper Trump connection - for instance a character played by Baron Cohen attending Trump University - but the Baron Cohen video ends with the tagline "Sacha graduates". "It was disgraceful. He oughta be fired immediately".

Who knows what it all means but, for the record, Baron Cohen did go to school to learn about being amusing. "You don't know shit", Trump continues. In the classic scene, Ali G tries to sell the surly businessman on the idea of "ice cream gloves" - an incident that Trump denies he was fooled by, though the clip suggests otherwise.

Trump walked out when he realized it was a prank.

Cohen became famous in the late '90s with his character Ali G, who would appear on various programs and eventually became the star of Da Ali G Show. "But actually he was there for about seven minutes". In the run up to the 2016 election, Cohen shot a sequence for The Brothers Grimsby involving then candidate Trump contracting HIV.
