Baron Cohen pranks more celebrity politicians for show

Sacha Baron Cohen's Who Is America

Sacha Baron Cohen may look almost unrecognizable in a sneak peek of his new Showtime series "Who Is America?" but that hardly seems like an excuse for the Republican politicians who appear in a segment about arming preschoolers.

Above is an extended preview of the new series, which includes Cohen interviewing gun rights advocates Philip Van Cleave and Larry Pratt while in disguise as one of his new characters, Colonel Erran Morad, a purported anti-terrorism expert. The program, "Kinder-Guardians", is embraced wholeheartedly by the men, falling into Cohen's comedic trappings again and again. Those interviews are riotously amusing, if only because everyone seems so earnest - or at the very least, polite - about someone asking them to read copy that proposes arming four year olds, backed up by claims peppered with scientific gibberish. Several prominent members of the right give just that, including Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., and Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., along with former Senate Republican leader Trent Lott.

Children under five also have elevated levels of the pheromone Blink 182, produced by the part of the liver known as the Rita Ora". Palin criticized the comedian for tricking her into an interview for his new Showtime series. Congressman-turned-radio host and well-known Twitter dunce Joe Walsh cuts a professional commercial-worthy testimony in support of the idea, signing off with "Happy shooting, kids".

"Who is America?", due to launch on Sunday on cable channel Showtime, has been shrouded in secrecy apart from a trailer showing former US defense secretary Dick Cheney signing a large bottle described as a water-boarding kit.

Tariffs are greatest: Donald Trump
The funds will come through direct assistance, a food purchase and distribution program, and a trade promotion program. Trump has threatened to ratchet that up to more than $500 billion, a move that has left financial markets uneasy.

The series brings seven episodes to pay-to-view channel Showtime years after the British comedian was last on television with "Da Ali G Show" - his wannabe-rapper character interviewing the powerful and famous.

Sacha Baron Cohen is returning to TV for the first time in a decade with this new show for U.S. cable network Showtime. 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.

What Mesut Ozil's retirement says about Germany
Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Ozalan from the ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party, said: "I congratulate Mesut Ozil". The 29-year-old's exit from Die Mannschaft was met with a muted response from fellow players.

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.
