Ron Paul's Uncomfortable Gay Moment With Sacha Baron Cohen

Ron Paul's Uncomfortable Gay Moment With Sacha Baron Cohen

Recent comments by a longtime aide to Ron Paul that Paul is uncomfortable around gay people got us to recall this rather infamous scene from the 2009 movie, Bruno. In it, the character Bruno (as played by Sacha Baron Cohen) gets the brainstorm that, to become famous himself, he should make a sex tape (schtup) with someone already famous. Lured by a chance to share his ideas on Austrian economics, Dr Paul becomes the unwitting victim. Ron Paul later said he should have punched "Bruno" in the nose. The result though is comedy gold.
