Sarah Palin claims Sacha Baron Cohen duped her for talk

While we'll have to wait for the show to air to find out what made Palin finally realize she was being pranked, she wrote in a heated Facebook post that she stormed out of the interview. "Ya" got me, Sacha", Sarah writes.

Palin said she and her daughter flew across the country to meet Cohen, who she says disguised himself as a disabled veteran in a wheelchair.

When we learned that Showtime would soon begin airing Sacha Baron Cohen's latest comedy/reality series, Who Is America?

Much like Donald Trump before her, Palin implied that she saw through Cohen's ruse quickly when the interview wasn't the "thoughtful discussion" she was there to have.

Palin also claimed that once the interview had ended, the show's producers purposely dropped her and her daughter off at the wrong airport, knowing that they would be unable to catch a flight back to Alaska, and refused to assist the pair in getting home. That detail has neither been confirmed nor denied by Cohen or Showtime, but it does seem like something he would love to have on film.

Former US vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin speaks at a rally organized by the Tea Party Patriots against the Iran nuclear deal in front of the Capitol in Washington, DC, on September 9, 2015.

The commander of the navy SEAL unit that oversaw the rescue, Rear Admiral Apakorn Yuukongkaew, hailed the worldwide effort. The boys won't attend the World Cup final. "Amazing news that all of the Thai kids are out of the cave safely!"

After describing how she had been misled into believing that she would be participating in a historical documentary about American veterans, she described the circumstances that led up to the skit which Cohen's viewers will presumably be able to watch on his upcoming show, "Who Is America?".

'Here is my challenge, shallow Sacha boy: go ahead - air the footage.

In a new report over at The Daily Mail, Palin explains that she agreed to fly to Washington, D.C.to meet with someone she thought was a disabled U.S. war veteran, but who - upon further reflection - was nearly definitely just a disguised Sacha Baron Cohen sitting in a wheelchair.

Added Palin: "By the way, my daughter thinks you're a piece of ****, Sacha". She called the charade "perverse" and disrespectful to USA military and middle class Americans.

With greater finesse than Palin, who called Baron Cohen a "piece of s**t" in her social media rant on the same topic, Walsh acknowledged that Baron Cohen is a amusing comedian before admonishing him for "mocking a disabled veteran" and encouraging a boycott of the Showtime network. "Every honorable American should feel the same", said Palin. Cheney was featured in a clip over the weekend signing a water boarding kit for Cohen, noting that it was a "first" for him.

In fact, the former Governor of Alaska is still an object of ridicule, at least where Sacha Baron-Cohen is concerned.
