Sarah Palin claims Sacha Baron Cohen duped her for talk

Palin Says She Was 'Duped' Into Interview With Sacha Baron

Sarah Palin Lashes Out at 'Evil' Sacha Baron Cohen Over Prank Interview for Showtime Series 'Who Is America?'

And that includes Palin, who says she was "duped" into travelling across the country with her daughter for an interview with Cohen, who "had heavily disguised himself as a disabled US Veteran, fake wheelchair and all". But she was instead "duped" by Sacha Baron Cohen in a "fake wheelchair".

While we'll have to wait for the show to air to find out what made Palin finally realize she was being pranked, she wrote in a heated Facebook post that she stormed out of the interview. I mean, if he got Bernie and Palin, who didn't he get?

The pro-life, pro-family mother of five accused Cohen, best known for HBO's Da Ali G Show and his 2006 mockumentary Borat, of "disrespect (ing)" the USA military and middle-class Americans through "evil, exploitive, sick 'humor'". Palin claims she was led to believe that she would be doing a legitimate interview with a "disabled veteran" who in reality was Cohen in disguise.

Showtime and Cohen allegedly lured Palin "to honor American Vets" for a "legit Showtime historical documentary".

Staff Sergeant Johnny Jones (Ret.) on how former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin claimed that she was tricked into an interview with comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

Her lengthy Facebook rant ended with a high school level jab: "By the way, my daughter thinks you're a piece of ****, Sacha".

Palin was one of many politicians who participated in Cohen's new show, Who Is America?

Who Is America? premieres Sunday, July 15 at 10/9c on Showtime.

Baron Cohen interviewed current US President Donald Trump in 2003 as another of his comic characters Ali G and was later attacked by Trump over the film "Borat", a "mockumentary" about a man from Kazakhstan exploring the US.

Palin added that one of her daughters was with her on the trip, which she said racked up "great costs on our part in time and resources".

Details of Who Is America are still under wraps, but Cohen plays several characters including Erran, above.

IndieWire has reached out to Showtime for further comment.

"Every honorable American Vet should feel the same", she wrote.

Cheney agrees saying, "Sure...that's the first time I've ever signed a waterboard".
