Sacha Baron Cohen took a shot at President Trump as his Ali G character on Thursday, following the news earlier in the week involving former Trump associates Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen.

“Yesterday it was proven in de courts dat u iz a crook – respeck! U iz a genuine gangsta! And it turns out most of your crew are too innit (4 guilty so far). U iz de Suge Knight of world leaderz innit,” Baron Cohen (as Ali G) wrote on Twitter. He also shared a video from his HBO show, “Da Ali G Show,” when he interviewed Trump.

On Tuesday, Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, was convicted on eight charges relating to bank and tax fraud, and Cohen, the president’s former personal attorney and fixer, pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations.

Here’s the full text of Baron Cohen-as-Ali G:

“2 my main man President Ronald Trump, check out when you colluded wiv me a few years ago and u corrected all dem stupid fake news scientists who said dat humanoids have only been around for 300,000 years.

Yesterday it was proven in de courts dat u iz a crook – respeck! U iz a genuine gangsta! And it turns out most of your crew are too innit (4 guilty so far). U iz de Suge Knight of world leaderz innit.

Also nuff respek for bonin all dem pornstars – but why iz you payin dem money to keep quiet about it? We know it aint coz u haz got a tiny dong, u told everyone it woz massive on da telly, and one fing u ain’t, is a liar. Anyway, peace out, u iz a hinspiration for young people, showing dem u can become President of America without having to give up a life of crime. Bigupyaself O.G.”

Cohen is currently wrapping up the first (and only?) season of his Showtime series “Who is America?” which airs its finale on Sunday. So far, Baron Cohen has duped Sen. Bernie Sanders, ABC’s Ted Koppel, Howard Dean, disgraced Senate candidate Roy Moore, ex-congressman Joe Walsh, and former Vice President Dick Cheney. Former VP candidate and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin claimed she was also duped but has yet to appear on the show.
