Sacha Baron Cohen Hints on Twitter at an Anti-Trump Movie in the Near Future

We haven’t heard much from Sacha Baron Cohen in a while. His last two movies — Through the Looking Glass and The Brothers Grimsby — were not exactly hits in 2016, and he hasn’t really made a “Sacha Baron Cohen” film since 2012’s flop, The Dictator.

However, it now looks like he may be taking on Donald Trump and, specifically, Trump University, the fraudulent real-estate program that Trump used to fleece folks out of millions of dollars. We haven’t heard much about it, either, since Trump settled a class-action lawsuit for $25 million soon after being elected President.

Yesterday, Sacha Baron Cohen teased a project in which he might be satirizing Trump University.

It is worth noting, too, that in 2012, Trump bragged that he was the “only person who immediately walked out of my ‘Ali G’ interview,” although by “immediately,” he means “seven minutes,” which according to Sacha Baron Cohen is “quite a long time” for an Ali G interview. (To be fair, the Trump segment is seven minutes long, but Trump is only on camera here for about one minute).
