Sarah Palin claims Sacha Baron Cohen duped her for Showtime series
(CNN) Former US vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin lashed out at the comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, claiming he tricked into an interview for his upcoming TV show.
Palin said she was lured in under the auspices of doing an interview for what she thought was a legitimate historical documentary for a US TV network, Showtime. She sat for a long interview with someone she “presumes” to have been Cohen — disguised as a disabled U.S. military veteran.
“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,” Palin wrote in a Facebook post.
