It mocked middle class Americans. It mocked our values. "And mocking the disabled and mocking and belittling our vets with this portrayal, in my book it's not amusing". I would love to'.
"I join a long list of American public personalities who have fallen victim to the evil, exploitive, sick "humor" of the British "comedian" Sacha Baron Cohen", Palin wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday. In a note posted to Twitter, he responded to the former Alaska governor's claims in character as Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr, Ph.D, the "citizen journalist" of "Who Is America?". Instead, Cohen appeared to have disguised himself as a disabled veteran, and proceeded to conduct an interview "full of Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm", she said.
He said he "stopped and questioned their direction" and then producers "rushed me out of the studio as an apparent fight broke out".
DailyMail.com was told by a source with knowledge of the the interview 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. Well, she hasn't gone away.
Palin also took aim at Showtime and CBS for motivating Cohen to press forward with the prank, which will supposedly air on his new show.
Who Is America? premieres on Showtime this Sunday, July 15, at 10 p.m.
"No, I don't regret the interview", Arpaio said.
"I did NOT say I was a War Vet", Baron Cohen wrote.
Ruddick and Truthbrary.org may be partially inspired by right-wing news site the Drudge Report founder Matt Drudge, since in one of the brief character shots in the teaser Baron Cohen is wearing a straw hat of the kind favored by Drudge. Well, technically it was Sacha Baron Cohen, portraying his Who Is America? character.
She added, "This actor, this comedian, whomever he is, he's a proven liar".
I mean, you read a line like that and you know, man, this guy he just doesn't quit.
'In my book it's not amusing'. "As an American, I would never hide my identity and deceive others only to mock and ridicule them as this Showtime series is created to do". He says he didn't know Cohen would "mock Israel and scheme to humiliate him and other conservatives".
A Showtime spokesperson had no comment about Palin's latest interview when contacted by DailyMail.com.
