“Russia interfere with the presidential election, but now all eyes are on them,” Borat explained in the video. “So it up to Kazakhstan to swing the midterms for Premier Trump.”

Borat went door to door in a Los Angeles neighborhood to speak with Trump supporters on topics ranging from “fake news” to immigration and racism. As always, Cohen was using Borat to try and force Trump supporters to see the problems with Trump’s viewpoints. Borat asked one gentleman whether or not Trump is racist, which the man said he wasn’t.

Hilarious Avengers 4 Art Suggests That Tom Holland Leaked The Title

In a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Avengers 4 star Tom Holland had a brief exchange with the host where he was asked a question that’s crossed the mind of many a fan. That is, seeing how Spider-Man was turned to dust in Avengers: Infinity War, will the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home be a prequel? It was here that Holland abruptly left the stage without dropping one of his patented spoilers – or so we thought.

When Holland exited his chat with Kimmel, his excuse for not answering the Far From Home question was that Thanos was robbing a bank. When pressed further about why the genocidal conqueror would resort to such a crime, the actor limply replied, “because Thanos is poor.”

Now, one user – who we can safely assume is joking – has suggested that Holland carelessly let slip the much theorized-over title of Avengers 4. Ladies and gentlemen, mark
