Over seven million people on you tube have watched the audience on Jimmy Kimmel watch an extremely graphic movie clip of a Sacha Baron Cohen movie.
Obviously the clip was too graphic to show. However the audience’s amazement is fun to watch. The phrase “hillarity ensues” was made for this moment. Truth is really funnier than fiction. Sacha Cohen has been featured in a new series “Who is America”? This is an actual clip of the show that aired last Sunday.
Before the first episode of Who Is America? aired, some of Cohen’s targets came forward to confess that they’d been duped, including Sarah Palin and Roy Moore, The gun-rights activist Philip Van Cleave, it emerged, had posted a 1,400-word Facebook post back in February warning others against falling for what he suspected to be the work of Michael Moore, or “ even worse, a Sacha Baron Cohen-esq ‘Borat’-type of shock comedy.” Walsh took things on the chin. “@SachaBaronCohen got me,” he tweeted. “Do I believe kindergarteners should be armed? Hell no. But, it’s on me. Sacha fooled me good. Flew me out to DC for some made up friend of Israel award. I gotta live with it.”
I found this clip on you tube of Dick Cheney autographing a water board.
Sarah Palin appeared to try to explain her ignorance in being duped by Cohen.
The amazing thing is that Palin talked about the show being about humiliation and devaluation of middle class Americans, when in fact it is really about illuminating the ignorance of the leaders of the right wing politicians like Palin. This interview followed a Facebook post condemning the show. Thus Palin is helping publicize the show.
Anyone interested can watch or tape the show. It is on Showtime and will be aired tonight at 11:30 eastern.
A big shoutout to Cohen for shedding light on ignorant Americans, and another shout out to Sarah Palin for helping advertise the show.
