According to a report by CNN, former US Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin lambasted comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, claiming that he tricked her into an interview for his upcoming TV show. Palin claims that she agreed to the interview for what she thought was a legitimate historical documentary for Showtime. She claims that she sat for a long interview with someone she 'presumes' was Cohen disguised as a disabled US military veteran. Palin wrote 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. 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."
