Sacha Baron Cohen pranks Sarah Palin for new show

According to Palin, the noted FOX News personality had been lured all the way from the wilds of Alaska to the ostensible safety of Washington, D.C., where she was compelled to sit for an interview with a wounded USA military veteran who she later came to believe was actually a heavily-disguised Sacha Baron Cohen sitting in a wheelchair, a thing that could happen to literally anyone. An e-mail seeking comment from Baron Cohen has not been returned.

Who Is America? is already ridiculous, and it hasn't even premiered yet.

Cohen's in character as his latest persona, Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr, Ph.D, when interviewing Palin for his forthcoming seven-episode comedy Who Is America?

Suffice to say, the former vice presidential candidate was not amused by her encounter with Cohen, calling him a "piece of ****".

Autocar reports that Mercedes-AMG is working on a small sports auto that will slot under the GT that would replace the SLC . This would mean the new model would have a front-mid-mounted engine, which makes sense from a cost perspective.

Palin said a man she believed to be Cohen "heavily disguised himself as a disabled U.S. Veteran, fake wheelchair and all".

Palin had claimed Cohen disguised himself as a "disabled United States veteran" during the interview before she walked out. Needless to say, Palin has not responded to the tweet, which directly addressed her official handle on the platform.

"I was rushed to the studio, production was a mess, I sat down and we started talking pro-Israel stuff, Israeli defense, and then out of left field the interviewer starts talking about how children should defend themselves against terrorist attacks", Walsh tweeted. "Strangest interview of my life".

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