Joe Arpaio campaign staff laughs off Sacha Baron Cohen prank

Scott Perry

Sacha Baron Cohen's ritual humiliation of prominent Republicans has once again borne fruit - and this time it's in the form of Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

In response, Arpaio bragged about his tenacity, but soon after Cohen asked Arpaio "If Donald Trump calls you up after this and says 'Sheriff Joe, I want to offer you an incredible blowjob, ' would you say yes?"

Sacha Baron Cohen continues to troll American political figures on "Who is America?" his current Showtime series, and one Republican lawmaker seems not quite up to speed.

That moment followed a lead-in from Cohen's newest character, a Finnish YouTube star called OMGWhizzBoyOMG, who was chatting merrily about how "my first job was a hand job from my mother and it was newspapers".

"I may have to say yes", Arpaio said. Arpaio clearly heard Cohen say that, but continued with the interview anyway, where things took a turn toward the kinky when Cohen began asking Arpaio questions about Donald Trump and their relationship with each other.

The show also features Arpaio arguing with a plastic Shopkins toy - an anti-firearms "D'lish Doughnut". Arpaio looked at his host in disbelief: "You have over 43 guns???".

Mike Pence expected to announce plans for ‘Space Force’ in U.S

Argentina's Senate rejects proposed bill to legalize abortion
The bill would have expanded abortion rights beyond current laws that allow it only in cases of rape or health risks to a mother. Currently, abortion in the South American nation is only allowed in cases of rape or if it endangers the mother's health.

Along the way, Cohen's character gets Arpaio to address a tiny donut toy about guns and tricks him into saying some rather raunchy stuff about the president, like he wouldn't be surprised if Trump did in fact receive a "golden shower".

Cohen offered D'lish Donut's reply: "But I want the guns to be taken back because they are unsafe!" As criticism erupted over the interview, Arpaio told the Arizona Republic that he had been unaware of the publication's views. His aggressive tactics ultimately led to a criminal conviction after he violated a court order in a racial-profiling case.

The former lawman announced in January that he meant to run for US Senate - though he might find his credibility rattled once again after being embarrassed by Baron Cohen.

A report surfaced last month where Arpaio claimed to have been duped by the actor in an interview that took place a year ago.
