Sarah Palin Lashes Out at 'Evil' Sacha Baron Cohen Over Prank Interview for Showtime Series 'Who Is America?'

Sarah Palin revealed to The Daily Mail (via The Hill) that she was tricked into being an interview subject on the series and that Cohen duped her by posing as a wounded war veteran.

"Yup - we were duped".

"I'm excited and ready to explore the nuanced conversations and heated debates that all genders are having, both online and in private to make sense of how the hell we got here, and most importantly; how do we move forward in the most effective way?" "Feel better now?" started Palin on Facebook. "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, enabled and sponsored by CBS/Showtime".

But Palin went on to explain what she experienced under the guise of participating in what she thought was a "documentary" about American veterans.

Palin says she and one of her daughters were met by a man she assumes was Baron Cohen, who was heavily disguised as a bogus USA military veteran and in a wheelchair.

"Out of respect for what I was led to believe would be a thoughtful discussion with someone who had served in uniform, I sat through a long "interview" full of Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm - but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen's chagrin", she said. "The disrespect of our U.S. military and middle-class Americans via Cohen's foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse", she said.

Palin is now calling on Cohen and Showtime to "donate all proceeds to a charitable group that actually respects and supports American Vets". "Mock politicians and innocent public personalities all you want, if that lets you sleep at night, but HOW DARE YOU mock those who have fought and served our country".

"After refusing to take our calls to help get us out of the bind they'd put us in for three days, I wrote this off as yet another example of the sick nature that is media-slash-entertainment today", she concluded. By the way, my daughter thinks you're a piece of **** [sic], Sacha.

"Every honorable American Vet should feel the same", she wrote.

In that preview he is seen autographing a platic gallon jug, which he hands back to Cohen before saying: 'That's the first time I've ever signed a waterboard'.

As everyone waits with bated breath for Sacha Baron Cohen's satirical comedy series Who Is America? .

A source tells DailyMail.com that this all happened in November, and Palin was with her teenage daughter Piper at the time, who is still in high school.
