Sarah Palin Says She Was Tricked by Sasha Baron Cohen When He Pretended to be a Wounded Veteran
Sarah Palin has revealed 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 planned flight back to Alaska, reports the Daily Mail.
'This "legit opportunity" to honor American Vets and contribute to a “legit Showtime historical documentary” was requested of me via a speakers bureau,' said Palin.
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.
'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 - but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen’s chagrin.'
Then, after that, she and Piper were brought to the wrong airport.
'After refusing to take our calls to help get us out of the bind they’d put us in for three days, I wrote this off as yet another example of the sick nature that is media-slash-entertainment today,' said Palin of the experience.
She also informed Cohen that Piper thinks he is a 'piece of s***.' -RW
