Sacha Baron Cohen Pranks Sarah Palin And Boy Is She Mad

Sarah Palin wants everyone to know how mad she is that she was pranked by Sasha Baron Cohen for his Showtime comedy series "Who Is America?" airing this Sunday, July 15, you betcha!

Time Magazine:

“Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin took to Facebook Tuesday to let Sacha Baron Cohen know exactly how angry she feels about being duped for his new prank TV series.”

The Narcissus Borealis got duped? You don’t say?

…“Yup – we were duped. Ya got me, Sacha. Feel better now?” Palin posted. “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.”

1) it’s a pretty low bar to trick Mooselini into doing anything that might result in some media attention, and B) CAN YOU BELIEVE SHE DIDN’T KNOW WHO SACHA BARON COHEN WAS?

Palin, who sat down with her daughter for an interview with Cohen, is outraged that the comedian, along with Showtime and CBS Corp., pretended to tap her for a “legit Showtime historical documentary.”

Oh, she was with Brisket Palin™ ? Now it makes all the sense in the world.
