The former Republican vice presidential candidate says she fell victim to British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen during an interview for his upcoming Showtime series, “Who Is America?”

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, the former Alaska governor wrote she and a daughter traveled across the country for what she thought was a legitimate interview. But she says Baron Cohen had “heavily disguised himself” as a disabled U.S. veteran in a wheelchair.

Palin says she sat through what she called a long interview full of “Hollywoodism’s disrespect and sarcasm” before she walked out.

She is challenging Baron Cohen and Showtime to donate proceeds from the show to a veterans’ charity.

Showtime has no comment. An email seeking comment from Baron Cohen has not been returned.

The show premieres Sunday.

Sarah Palin, the woman who claimed she could see Russia from her window is apparently easily duped. She now spends her days tweeting with links to her website where she earns pennies per hit.

She, and 1000 others have been duped by Sacha Baron Cohen for over a decade. She can add it to her resume!
Sacha Baron Cohen interviewed as, Ali G, Borat, and other characters to expose peoples prejudices. His best 'interviews' were definitely his earlier work when people didn't know him.

Its was an elaborate scheme. You would have been duped too. The DNC was duped too. So shut your mouth yoni. Stop picking on a great mom with a disabled child. Metoo is vital for Republican women of power as well. It doesn't only apply to dems. You hypocrit

Arch, I'm not Yoni. Who is Yoni? I'm not a hypocrit (your spelling)
Are you aware that Ms. Palin has 2 other children Bristol who had that baby as an unwed teen and a son named Track. Several months ago Track was arrested for assaulting his very own father over a truck, Clearly Ms Palin is a great mom. Palins are a great example of Republican Family Values!

yoansonw isn;t yoni either so very funny. But you are the individual that use to post under yonasonw. So stop it with your rotten lies.

Of course like a baby rather than resorting to substance you pick on spelling issues. An issue of the past, no longer relevant in the 21st century when e-mails are written in text like styles.

Re Sarah kids, Listen its a tough world out there. Unfortunately there are many chashuva rabbonim ehrlicha yidden who have kids OTD as well. It says nothing about the parents. Unless you can provide a source that proves that Sarah Pallin herself neglected her kids or got shikkur while watching them etc.. your torah is nonsense. Its fake news and a distraction. We do know that she put alot of effort into her special needs child . You have some never degrading her.

He didn't pose as a comedian tricky yoni . He posed as someone disabled . He was sneaky . He didn't say his name was the famous comedian .

Yoni is a rotten coward liar . He uses ten different screen names to spread misinformation . He started his career as " yonasonw. Henceforth the name tricky yoni for short . Once he was exposed he decided to bury the name yonasonw. But he is not too smart in covering his tracks . Of course he is quirky and always has wierd credentials .

He criticizes trump for being a racist yet he is a racist . He is mad at ruskie for misinformation yet he engages in the same tactics .

Lastly I am guessing after such a stupid question that it's you playing dumb .

She still fell for it. It's on her. You love Trump for being sneaky, but when a comedian does the same thing to a washed-up politician you cry.

Yes yoni, when a comedian does that to an innocent mom I cry. Its mean and nasty. You'd fall for it too.

And Trump does it for the better of the country. Not to be evil just to shame someone for no reason at all.

Still not Yoni; sorry.

And she's not an innocent mom, she's a public figure who ran for the second highest office in the country who has reason to be shamed (had McCain not chosen her, you might have never seen your friend Obama become president).
