Pranked Sarah Palin Rips Sacha Baron Cohen for Mocking Vets

She wrote: "Yup - we were duped".

"I'm excited and ready to explore the nuanced conversations and heated debates that all genders are having, both online and in private to make sense of how the hell we got here, and most importantly; how do we move forward in the most effective way?"

She ended the post with one last call out, writing, "Feel good and manly about your M.O., Sacha?"

Sarah Palin thought she was going to be in a "legit Showtime historical documentary". "The disrespect of our U.S. military and middle-class Americans via Cohen's foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse".

She claims that Cohen disguised himself as a wounded veteran for the sit-down, and that to cap things off the production team knowingly dropped her and her daughter off at the wrong airport, knowing they would not be able to get a flight back to Alaska. That detail has neither been confirmed nor denied by Cohen or Showtime, but it does seem like something he would love to have on film.

Showtime's president and CEO praised Baron Cohen as a "comedic genius" during the show's series announcement Monday.

"I join a long list of American public personalities who have fallen victim to the evil, exploitive, sick "humour" of the British "comedian" Sacha Baron Cohen, enabled and sponsored by CBS/Showtime".

"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 said.

The former governor then challenged Mr. Cohen to donate all the proceeds from his new series to a charity that "actually respects and supports American Vets".

Palin says she was contacted by an organization that invited her to an interview with a wounded warrior - but the veteran was an imposter and in fact comedian Sacha Cohen, who is known for his fake interviews of famous celebrities.

"Go ahead, air the footage", Palin wrote.

Showtime declined to comment on the situation, while CBS did not immediately respond to TooFab's request for comment.

"By the way, my daughter thinks you're a piece of ****, Sacha", Palin wrote in closing.

Who Is America? is described as exploring "the diverse individuals, from the infamous to the unknown across the political and cultural spectrum, who populate the unique nation".

"This 3rd rate character named Sacha Baron Cohen, I only wish that he would have been punched in the face so many times right now, he'd be in a hospital", Trump says in the video.

Others taken in by the prank include Dick Cheney, Howard Dean and Ted Koppel - all of whom appeared in scenes for his upcoming Showtime series "Who Is America?"
