Sarah Palin Says Sacha Baron Cohen Tricked Her Into a "Truly Sick" Interview

Sacha Baron Cohen's new Showtime series may sound like a hoot, but Sarah Palin is seriously not laughing.

Palin took to her Facebook page on Tuesday to rail against Cohen for "duping" her into giving an interview to him for his new series, Who Is America?

"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 writes

Palin says that Cohen disguised himself as a disabled US veteran, "fake wheelchair and all," in order to get her to sit down for an hour-long interview filled with sarcasm and disrespect. She had apparently been told the interview was for a legitimate Showtime documentary to honor American vets, but she eventually ended up walking away from the interview. Though she calls the interview tactics "truly sick," she challenges CBS and Showtime to donate all the proceeds from the episode to a charitable group honoring vets.

She ended the post with one last callout, writing, "Feel good and manly about your M.O., Sacha? By the way, my daughter thinks you're a piece of ****, Sacha. Every honorable American Vet should feel the same."

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

Sarah Palin calls it sick cuz she's a moron for knowing who Lena Dunham is but not Sachs Baron Cohen, known for over a decade for fooling Republicans. He's been in movies, of course he's on a show...by showtime....which provides entertainment in the form of COMEDY! God if it were up to Republicans who have ever been satiated, there'd be NO COMEDY left! Military or not, it's satire, he surely didn't break any laws forging false military documents, or ACTUALLY impersonating a valid military veteran who exists, so she could've easily verified the name he gave, anybody can for military personnel, especially politicians lol. She's just an idiot who was truly duped,,,,and IT'S FUNNY! THAT'S THE POINT!

A very good cold water fish like sardine, tuna or Lutazene even salmon, which is wealthy in omega three fatty acids continues your eyes hydrated thereby preventing dry eye syndrome and can also save you cataracts. Omega three contents lessen the attention pressure and chronic irritation of the eyelids. if you are not a fan of seafood, oil supplements can do the trick as properly.
