Palin, reiterating and expanding on a Facebook post she wrote earlier this week explaining her appearance on Cohen's show, discussed why she ultimately "literally, physically removed" her mic and walked out of the interview.
Sasha Baron Cohen is set to appar in a Showtime miniseries called "Who is America?" where the actor goes 'undercover to nail Republicans, ' according to a source.
"Palin said that she was offered a "'legit opportunity" to honour American Vets and contribute to a "legit Showtime historical documentary'" and that it "was requested of me via a speakers bureau".
Baron Cohen's series, Who Is America? Conservative commentator Sarah Palin came out shortly after to say that she too had been fooled, having flown across the country to meet with a person she thought was a disabled veteran in a wheelchair.
Cohen, as Ruddick, then mocked Palin for questioning the authenticity of former President Barack Obama's birth certificate and comments she made about being able to see Russian Federation from her home in Alaska.
"I am Dr. Billy Wayne Ruddick, founder/ceo/accountant of Truthbrary.org and it was I that interviewed you", he wrote, addressing Palin. It's been a long time since I fought for my country in Vietnam. "I was sadly prevented from joining the regular army on account of bone spurs bein discovered in my testes". "Mocking vets, belittling the disabled, stereotyping sufferers of mental illness, spewing disdain for America's heartland and our collective work ethic and patriotism... all rewarded in the City of Angels that fell so far". "So why hunt a fine citizen journalist like myself?" the letter states.
"I have always admired you for TELLING THE TRUTH about Obama's birth certificate and the location of Russian Federation", he wrote. He said he believes Palin was hit by a "b--t grenade".
