Roy Moore Says Sacha Baron Cohen Duped Him Too, Threatens Legal Action

'It was proposed to me as a legitimate interview to speak about veterans issues and our military and current events to a new audience, ' Palin told Robin Roberts of how the interview was first presented to her past year.

The seven-episode series marks Baron Cohen's first television project in a decade after he launched his comedy career as subversive white English rapper Ali G., whose interviews included Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich. Moore said he did not receive any other financial compensation for his travel other than expenses.

The former governor of Alaska told host Robin Roberts that Baron Cohen showed her "propaganda" about sex changes and transgender people and claimed that Chelsea Clinton was the "recipient of a government-funded sex change". "If Showtime airs a defamatory attack on my character, I may very well be involved in another", Moore said. Ya' got me, Sacha.

Former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio says Cohen posed as a Finnish comedian to dupe him.

Former Alabama judge Roy Moore is the latest conservative to admit they were fooled by a Sacha Baron Cohen spoof for his forthcoming series, Who Is America?

"Palin said that she was offered a "'legit opportunity" to honour American Vets and contribute to a "legit Showtime historical documentary'" and that it "was requested of me via a speakers bureau".

Palin, reiterating and expanding on a Facebook post she wrote earlier this week explaining her appearance on Cohen's show, discussed why she ultimately "literally, physically removed" her mic and walked out of the interview. She ultimately left, however, after claiming to have experienced "a long "interview" full of Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm".

Cohen responded to Palin's outrage and challenge in a sarcastic tweet Thursday that was made in the character of the interviewer.

Showtime defended Cohen's antics in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter.

"Who is America?", due to launch on Sunday on cable channel Showtime, has been shrouded in secrecy apart from a trailer showing former U.S. defense secretary Dick Cheney signing a large bottle described as a water-boarding kit.
