Showtime Loves the Who Is America? Controversy, and Wants More of It

Congressman still showing off bogus pro-Israel award from Sacha Baron Cohen

Congressman still showing off bogus pro-Israel award from Sacha Baron Cohen

The self-described "toughest sheriff in America", Arpaio is best known for facing jail time previous year when he was convicted of ignoring a federal court order in a racial-profiling case.

Cohen's show has been making headlines all over the country in recent weeks because of Cohen's interaction with political figures, like the Georgia house representative who used a racial slur and showed his butt on the show. Arpaio previously admitted that it "wouldn't surprise me" if the "golden shower" allegations from the infamous Steele Russia Dossier were true.

Things got uncomfortable fast when Cohen announced "I have 43 guns. I think he is the Daniel Day-Lewis of comedy", said Nevins, referring to the three time Oscar-winning British star of "Lincoln".

Cohen, as OMGWhizzBoy, unwrapped a miniature Shopkins box as he asked Arpaio to explain "what communists are trying to do to stop people having guns". Yet here we are, and Arpaio tells Cohen in the above snippet that he "may have to say yes" if President Donald Trump called to offer him an "amazing blow job".

Arpaio - known as the "toughest sheriff in America" - told Breitbart News last month that he had been tricked into the Cohen interview.

"Delicious doughnut, you have to understand that you have to follow the constitution and the law and allow people to have guns", he's seen telling the doughnut.

"Oh yes, I've been collecting them for the upcoming race war", Baron Cohen says.

"The bad guys are going to get their guns", Arpaio said. He also had said he didn't know who Baron Cohen was until he recently saw news coverage about the comedian pulling a similar prank on former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. "It's gonna kill you", he said, pointing his finger at D'lish Donut.

Arpaio often seemed taken aback during the interview that aired Sunday in which Baron Cohen portrayed a Finnish TV host who channeled some of his questions through a toy named "D'Lish Donut". "I'm hoping that somebody else in there has a gun, and will shoot that person before he shoots you".
