Sarah Palin on Tuesday took to Facebook to reveal that she was unknowingly interviewed by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen for his upcoming Showtime series, Who Is America?
The former Republican vice-presidential candidate said she sat down for an interview with Cohen thinking he was a wounded U.S. veteran.
"Yup — we were duped. Ya’ got me, Sacha. Feel better now?" Palin began. "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, enabled and sponsored by CBS/Showtime."
She continued: "This 'legit opportunity' to honor American Vets and contribute to a 'legit Showtime historical documentary' was requested of me via a speakers bureau."
Palin went on to say that she and one of her daughters traveled across the country to meet with Cohen, who, she says, "had heavily disguised himself as a disabled U.S. Veteran, fake wheelchair and all."
