Sacha Baron Cohen Trolls Sarah Palin After Stirring Rebuke

Sacha Baron Cohen Trolls Sarah Palin After Stirring Rebuke

The British comedian just clapped back at Sarah's claim he tricked her into believing he was a disabled veteran.

The comedian retweeted a new Twitter account that's apparently his new "citizen journalist" character, "Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., PhD".

That letter stated that Palin had been told during the interview that he was a veteran of the United Parcel Service, and not the armed forces. She said the producers reached out to her through a speakers' bureau. "I relish it too, when it's done well".

"Since [the interview], nobody returns my calls", she said.

'It was occurring to me, whatever this show is, whatever this interview really is, is all about humiliation and devaluing middle class Americans, whom I represent, ' explained Palin. "Out of respect for what I was led to believe would be a thoughtful discussion with someone who had served in uniform, I sat through a long "interview" full of Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm-but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen's chagrin".

"When I disagreed, he showed me a photograph on his laptop of a huge inaugural crowd and a man holding a digital clock on a pole", says Koppel.

TV prankster Sacha Baron Cohen has fired a return salvo in his war of words with Sarah Palin.

On Thursday the former Alabama judge and gubernatorial candidate issued a statement saying that he had agreed to attend a pro-Israel event that he later learned was staged by Cohen, who he described as dealing in "trickery, deception, and dishonesty". "And mocking the disabled and mocking and belittling our vets with this portrayal, in my book it's not amusing".

'In my book it's not amusing'. "Mocking vets, belittling the disabled, stereotyping sufferers of mental illness, spewing disdain for America's heartland and our collective work ethic and patriotism... all rewarded in the City of Angels that fell so far".

Former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio says Cohen posed as a Finnish comedian to dupe him. It's to parody something that is important to an individual or an entity or a group of people.

In her response to Cohan Thursday, Palin demanded CBS Corp., which owns Showtime, to "discuss which Vets organizations will receive the show's profits".

However, the former "Nightline" anchor said things took a turn when the interviewer, played by Cohen, started to ask him about President Donald Trump's inauguration.
