Sarah Palin claims Sacha Baron Cohen duped her for talk

Sarah Palin claims Sacha Baron Cohen duped her for talk

"Cohen, CBS and Showtime drew the ire of the former Alaska governor a day after Showtime issued a press release announcing the "Borat" actor's new satirical series titled, "Who is America?,'" reports Fox News".

In a new report over at The Daily Mail, Palin explains that she agreed to fly to Washington, meet with someone she thought was a disabled United States war veteran, but who - upon further reflection - was nearly definitely just a disguised Sacha Baron Cohen sitting in a wheelchair. "Ya" got me, Sacha", Sarah writes.

Palin hit the headlines in 2008 when Republican presidential nominee John McCain chose her as his running mate. She said that a person she believes to be Cohen was "heavily disguised" as a disabled USA veteran with a fake wheelchair.

"Donate all proceeds to a charitable group that actually respects and supports American Vets", she wrote. But also, she stayed (and so did Trump, despite what he says).

Palin added that one of her daughters was with her on the trip, which she said racked up "great costs on our part in time and resources". Instead, she was interviewed by Cohen in disguise as a wheelchair-bound disabled veteran, where she says she encountered only "disrespect and sarcasm".

During a six-minute clip, Jenner admits that she "bounced back fast", but that her body is not how it was pre-pregnancy. KYLIE Jenner can't believe how quickly her daughter Stormi is growing up.

Sacha Baron Cohen rubs many people the wrong way.

Cohen first found fame in Britain in 2000 with "Da Ali G Show" that saw his wannabe rapper character interview unsuspecting public figures. This time for CBS/SHOWTIME.

Her lengthy Facebook rant ended with a high school level jab: "By the way, my daughter thinks you're a piece of ****, Sacha".

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".

Who Is America? premieres Sunday, July 15 at 10/9c on Showtime. She also explained that the reason she appeared on "Saturday Night Live" was that "I know that they portrayed me as an idiot, and I hated that, and I wanted to come on the show and counter some of that".
