In this installment, Ali G (Sacha Baron Cohen) explores politics. He interviews former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich about the possibility of a woman president, pointing out the danger that she might "fall in love with someone bad like Saddam Hussein." Bruno is back in New York for some fashion shows, and finds surprising agreement among fashionistas with his views that Osama bin Laden "is very fashionable," and that people "with no fashion sense" should be put on trains and sent to camps somewhere -- "Bye bye!" Ali G goes to several American business leaders, including Donald Trump, to pitch his idea for a special glove that one can wear while eating ice cream, to avoid messy dripping and keep the hand warm. Borat does a segment on guns, interviewing Ken Goldberg, a gun club owner. Goldberg is enchanted when Borat tells him that in Kazakhstan, "they take very bad evil criminal and they let you take and practice in two of the gun club." When asked if it's possible to buy an anti-tank gun for self-defense, Goldberg responds, "You can...in Texas." Ali G then interviews a DEA agent, asking him why seized illegal drugs aren't donated to charity.
