Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has duped former vice president Dick Cheney into signing a “waterboard kit,” and he tricked half-term governor of Alaska Sarah Palin into an interview. Former tea party Congressman Joe Walsh, a deadbeat dad, revealed that he was duped by Cohen, too. Walsh is calling for a boycott. Cohen’s latest victim is Roy Moore, the pedophile (alleged!) and failed candidate for the Senate. And he is mad. Womp womp!
We’re not sure how Cohen duped Moore. Maybe he told him he would be meeting a 12-year-old girl named Sacha. Instead, Moore was duped into being featured in Cohen’s upcoming Showtime series, “Who Is America?”
Moore released a lengthy statement.
“In February 2018, I was invited to Washington D. C. to receive an award for my strong support of Israel in commemoration of her 70th anniversary as a nation,” Moore said. “Because Alabama has always been at the forefront of support of Israel and because I share a strong belief in God as the Creator and Sustainer of all life, as does Israel, I eventually accepted the invitation. Expenses were paid, and I received no private remuneration for my time or participation. I did not know Sacha Cohen or that a Showtime TV series was being planned to embarrass, humiliate, and mock not only Israel, but also religious conservatives such as Sarah Palin, Joe Walsh, and Dick Cheney.”
“I do not apologize for my belief in God or the common religious and cultural heritage that Israel shares with America,” he continued.
“As an Alabamian, I believe in truth and honesty, which the shadowy media groups behind this illicit scheme do not. Obviously, people like Cohen who mock not only Israel but those who support Israel and the principles upon which America is based, do not share my beliefs,” Moore said about Cohen, who is Jewish, by the way.
“I don’t need Sacha Cohen to tell me who America is, but I can tell him that America is a proud Nation which sprang from humble beginnings and a strong belief in God, virtue, and morality,” he continued as if he couldn’t stop himself.
“As an American, I would never hide my identity and deceive others only to mock and ridicule them as this Showtime Series is designed to do,” he said. “America is not only about being proud but about being brave and standing for what we believe.”
“I am involved in several court cases presently to defend my honor and character against vicious false political attacks by liberals like Cohen. If Showtime airs a defamatory attack on my character, I may very well be involved in another,” he added. “As for Mr. Cohen, whose art is trickery, deception, and dishonesty, Alabama does not respect cowards who exhibit such traits! It’s been a long time since I fought for my country in Vietnam. I’m ready to defend her again!”
Here is Cohen getting Dick Cheney to sign his ‘waterboard kit.’
All of Cohen’s victims have just given him free publicity. Cohen isn’t just going after conservatives. Sen. Bernie Sanders was reportedly duped, too, but we’re sure he’s not going to whine about it. Veteran journalist Ted Koppel admitted that the comedian duped him as well but he didn’t throw a fit over it.
