Sarah Palin Says She Was ‘Duped’ By Sacha Baron Cohen’s "Sick Humor"

11 Juillet, 2018, 03:24 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

Showtime is adding to its slate of politically charged shows, including a new newsmagazine and a project from comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate said she and her daughter, Piper, flew across the country to sit down for what was purportedly an interview for a documentary about veterans' issues.

"Yup - we were duped".

'After refusing to take our calls to help get us out of the bind they'd put us in for three days, I wrote this off as yet another example of the sick nature that is media-slash-entertainment today, ' said Palin of the experience.

Whether or not you find all of this amusing will depend entirely upon how you feel about both Sarah Palin, the concept of "ambush comedy" and Cohen's methodology.

She continued: "This "legit opportunity" to honor American Vets and contribute to a "legit Showtime historical documentary" was requested of me via a speakers bureau".

'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, ' explained Palin.

"I sat through a long "interview" full of Hollywoodism's [sic] disrespect and sarcasm - but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out", Palin wrote.

"The disrespect of our USA military and middle-class Americans via Cohen's foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse", Palin said.

Palin further claimed the production team deliberately dropped her and her daughter (she doesn't specify which one) at the wrong airport "knowing we'd miss all flights back home to Alaska".

Sacha Baron Cohen's series "Who Is America?" hasn't premiered yet, but it's already making headlines left and right.

"Donate all proceeds to a charitable group that actually respects and supports American Vets", she wrote.

Palin ended her explanation slapping Cohen for his ignorance, "Feel good and manly about your M.O., Sacha?"

Palin posted the open letter with a link to an article from The Hill about conservative political commentator Matt Drudge reporting Palin was just one of many who fell for Cohen's on-camera prank. And to punctuate her rant, she said that her daughter thinks he's a "piece of ****".

Sacha Baron Cohen has done his best to avoid the spotlight and hide behind the characters he plays for nearly 20 years, but that may be about to change. This time for CBS/SHOWTIME.
