Sarah Palin Calls Sacha Baron Cohen “Evil, Sick” After Being Tricked Into Interview
Palin confirmed with a reply to Matt Drudge’s tweet revealing that Cohen was able to get multiple politicians from both political parties.
Sacha Baron Cohen at it again! This time for CBS/SHOWTIME. Lots of tricks played. Both Republicans and Democrats are getting caught up in the madness. Sacha has finked Cheney, Palin, Howard Dean, Alberto Gonzales, Bernie, Trent Lott, Patraeus, Ted Koppel, and more… BEWARE!

Palin recalls that Cohen was disguised as a disabled veteran and that she and her daughter flew to Washington D.C. for an interview with was coined as a “legit Showtime historical documentary.”
She said that she sat through a long “interview” before taking off her mic and leaving the set because she had enough. She also alleges that Cohen’s team dropped her and her daughter off at the wrong airport, “knowing [they’d] miss all the flights back home to Alaska.”
Now she is challenging the Borat star and CBS/Showtime to donate the show’s earnings from her episode to a charity that “actually supports and respects” U.S. veterans. She also adds, “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. Truly sick.”
There are not many details out about what Who Is America? will entail, but we won’t have to wait long to find out as it comes out on July 15. Earlier this week, Cohen shared a teaser for the show that included former Vice President Dick Cheney signing a “waterboard kit.”
