Promising to inject energy and dick jokes into his flagging election campaign, US President Donald Trump announced comedian Sacha Baron Cohen would replace Mike Pence as Vice President.
Trump tweeted early Saturday: "SO STOKED. Gonna be HILARIOUS on road trips. CAN'T WAIT for pranks on Don Jr & Eric. Gonna PISS MY PANTS. Pence so boring."
Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson predicted the move would make the Republican ticket "even more appealing to frat boys".
At an afternoon press conference in New York, Trump said he was impressed with the Borat star's "international experience and appreciation of American politics and people," and added "you won't be able to get enough of this guy."
