Sacha Baron Cohen is seemingly breaking his silence on the controversy swirling around his Showtime prank series to fire back at former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. "The disrespect of our USA military and middle-class Americans via Cohen's foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse".
Cohen's Dr. Billy Wayne Ruddick, Jr.is demanding an apology from the former Republican vice presidential candidate after she claimed she was conned into taking part in a "sick" skit for the comedian's Showtime series Who Is America?
Palin took to Facebook to air her rage at Cohen in a lengthy screed on Tuesday. Sacha, aka Dr. Ruddick, says he's the one who interviewed her, and adds.
Palin says she sat through what she called a long interview full of "Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm" before she walked out.
Donald Trump shares letter from Kim Jong Un, says ‘progress being made!’
Both sides were expected to discuss the timeline and ways in which remains of American soldiers would be returned at the meeting. In a post on Twitter, Mr Trump said the letter, dated July 6, was very nice and was a sign of " Great progress being made! ".
Ruddick claims he never presented himself as a former member of the US military (he was, in fact, a part of the United Parcel Service), that he was unable to serve his country (following the discovery of bone spurs in his "testies"), and that Palin may have been hit by a "bullshit grenade".
"I have always admired you for TELLING THE TRUTH about Obama's birth certificate and the location of Russian Federation", he wrote. "I am not the type of guy who gets up and walks out", he told Breitbart. "So why hunt a fine citizen journalist like myself?" the letter states.
Walsh included the hashtag #boycottShowtime on his series of tweets, while Palin asked Baron Cohen and Showtime to donate the proceeds from the show "to a charitable group that actually respects and supports American Vets".
"I don't need Sacha Cohen to tell me who America is, but I can tell him that America is a proud Nation which sprang from humble beginnings and a strong belief in God, virtue, and morality", he said in a statement. Much like Sarah Palin being asked freaky questions by any stranger she encounters in a wheelchair, we are prepared to accept all of this at face value.
