Sarah Palin Melts Down After Being Duped Into Fake Interview With ‘Evil, Sick’ Sacha Baron Cohen, Then Dropped At Wrong Airport
Failed vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and former Fox News pundit is losing her mind after being duped into an interview with a disguised Sacha Baron Cohen for his upcoming TV show.
Responding to a tweet from commentator Matt Drudge that the “Borat” creator had “finked” various public figures, Palin wrote, “I join a long list of American public personalities who have fallen victim to the evil, exploitive, sick ‘humor’ of the British ‘comedian’ Sacha Baron Cohen, enabled and sponsored by CBS/Showtime.”
Palin said Baron Cohen was heavily disguised as a disabled veteran, and that she and her daughter flew across the country for an interview that was billed as a “legit Showtime historical documentary.”
She said she sat for a long “interview” before removing her mic and leaving the set because she’d had enough. Palin added that Baron Cohen’s team intentionally dropped her and her daughter off at the wrong Washington, D.C., airport, “knowing we’d miss all flights back home to Alaska.”
“Mock politicians and innocent public personalities all you want, if that lets you sleep at night, but HOW DARE YOU mock those who have fought and served our country,” Palin wrote.
Baron Cohen’s upcoming TV show “Who Is America?” is set to debut on July 15. Details are scarce, but the comedian did release a teaser on Sunday showing a clip of former Vice President Dick Cheney signing a “waterboard kit” at the request of someone off-camera who sounded a lot like Baron Cohen in character.
Showtime released another trailer on Monday featuring the show’s title and release date. Check it out in the video below.
