By The Blaze. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin challenged CBS and Showtime after she walked out of a fake interview she was duped into agreeing to with a disguised comedian. . .
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. . .
“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,” she added, “but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen’s chagrin.” . . .
“Here is my challenge, shallow Sacha boy,” Palin said. “Go ahead – air the footage. Experience tells us it will be heavily edited, not pretty, and intended to humiliate.”
“The challenge is to Cohen, CBS and Showtime,” she added, “donate all proceeds to a charitable group that actually respects and supports American Vets.” (Read more from “Sarah Palin Issues This Challenge to CBS After ‘Disrespectful’ Fake Interview” HERE)
Furious Sarah Palin Reveals She Was Tricked by Sacha Baron Cohen When He Pretended to Be a Wounded Veteran to Interview Her for His New Show ‘Who Is America?’
By Daily Mail. Sacha Baron Cohen has done his best to avoid the spotlight and hide behind the characters he plays for almost 20 years, but that may be about to change.
Sarah Palin revealed on Tuesday that she was duped into filming an interview with Sacha Baron Cohen in Washington DC for his new series Who Is America?, completely unaware of the comedian’s intentions.
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. . . .
DailyMail.com has been told by a source that it was the American Programs Bureau that presented this opportunity to Palin, the same group who manages the likes of Larry King, Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs, Sir Richard Branson and Mikhail Gorbachev, to name a few.
‘For my interview, my daughter and I were asked to travel across the country where Cohen (I presume) had heavily disguised himself as a disabled US Veteran, fake wheelchair and all,’ explained Palin.
