Sacha Baron Cohen tricks another ex-congressman into an interview

  • Sarah Palin is not happy about being 'duped' into appearing on Sacha Baron Cohen's new TV series

Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen has fired back at US politician Sarah Palin in character as the "veteran" who duped her in an interview for his new show.

Palin had claimed Cohen disguised himself as a "disabled U.S. veteran" during the interview before she walked out.

In recent days, former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and former Alabama judge Roy Moore have detailed questionable encounters with someone they believe to be Cohen.

Palin took to Facebook earlier this week to reveal she was tricked into sitting down with Cohen's alter ego. On Thursday, a man apparently named Dr. Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr. claimed on Twitter that he was in fact the person who interviewed Palin.

The image also contained the URL to Ruddick's right-wing "website", which features articles like "Obama is a Kenyan", "Crooked Hillary" and "Hollywood Satanic Elite".

He said he "stopped and questioned their direction" and then producers "rushed me out of the studio as an apparent fight broke out".

"I am involved in several court cases presently to defend my honour and character against vicious false political attacks by liberals like Cohen", Moore, who is accused of numerous allegations of sexual misconduct with minors, wrote.

"All of it was obnoxious, but I think the last straw was when the interviewer asked about what he claimed was a government-funded sex-change operation for Chelsea Clinton", the source shared.

"Who Is America?" is scheduled to premiere at 9 p.m. PT, midnight ET Sunday night on Showtime.

In that episode, President Trump walked off set less than a minute into the interview with Cohen, who was trying to get the real estate scion to invest in gloves for eating ice cream. "I did NOT say I was a War Vet", he wrote.

Palin shared more details of her experience with Cohen during an appearance on Good Morning America on July 13. Partway through the interview, she walked out.

The admissions follow a teaser trailer Baron Cohen tweeted on Sunday that included a clip of former Vice President Dick Cheney signing "a waterboard kit" at the request of an off-camera interviewer, who is presumably the United Kingdom comedian disguised in character.

However, she said, she is "certainly always ready to go through an open door that perhaps is in my future to get out there and serve the public".

"He thinks this kind of stuff is amusing and mocking the disabled and mocking and belittling our vets with his portrayal", said Palin.
