Politician denounces Baron Cohen guns prank

Sacha Baron Cohen has duped and angered a handful of notable politicians, like Sarah Palin and Joe Walsh, for his new Showtime series "Who Is America?" that premiered on Sunday.

In the first episode, aired on Sunday, Baron Cohen posed as an Israeli anti-terror expert who asked two US congressmen to support his fictional Israeli programme "Kinderguardians" to teach kindergartners how to use guns.

United States network Showtime, which launched Who is America? on Sunday, has issued its own statement in defence of Baron Cohen, citing "widespread misinformation" about the programme.

Ph.D. has been referred to as a disabled veteran in some reports and Sarah Palin credits this information as why she granted an interview for the show.

According to Vanity Fair, Billy Wayne is the same character used for Palin's segment, which has not aired yet.

"And contrary to her claims he did not appear in a wheelchair", the network added, before concluding that in both interviews Cohen, 46, "did not wear military apparel of any kind". The network was contacted repeatedly by news outlets about Palin and other "duped" claims and replied to all requests with "no comment". "Ya' got me, Sacha".

Walsh added in a tweet on Sunday, "no, I don't believe we should train & arm kindergarteners".

It doesn't matter if you love it or hate it, none of us can control it - Sacha Baron Cohen is giving us more where that came from for the next six weeks on Sundays at 10/9 central on Showtime.

Showtime's statement is rather odd given its timing, however. She ultimately left, however, after claiming to have experienced "a long "interview" full of Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm".
