Cohen keeps duping conservatives.
Sacha Baron Cohen may be the hero America needs right now. The outlandish comedian, who shocked the world as Borat, Ali G, and Bruno, is crafting a new series for Showtime. He first introduced the series on Twitter on July 4th. Cohen used old footage of Donald Trump attacking him for his work on The Dictator in the promo tweet. “This third-rate character named Sacha Baron Cohen, I only wish he that would’ve been punched in the face so many times right now, he’d be in a hospital," stated Trump in the promo clip. Then, a week later, conservative Sarah Palin took to social media to vent about being tricked by Cohen into a faux interview. "For my interview, my daughter and I were asked to travel across the country where Cohen (I presume) had heavily disguised himself as a disabled US Veteran, fake wheelchair and all," she complained. Now, another conservative has been targeted by Cohen for his new series.
Roy Moore, who severed as a judge on the Supreme Court of Alabama, released a statement where he claims he was tricked as well. Moore states that Cohen invited him to a faux ceremony where he would receive an award for his “strong support of Israel.” "Because Alabama has always been at the forefront of support of Israel and because I share a strong belief in God as the Creator and Sustainer of all life, as does Israel, I eventually accepted the invitation," writes Moore. “I did not know Sacha Cohen or that a Showtime TV series was being planned to embarrass, humiliate, and mock not only Israel, but also religious conservatives such as Sarah Palin, Joe Walsh, and Dick Cheney." From the looks of things, the series, entitled Who Is America, is going to be amazing.
