Sacha Baron Cohen's interview with Sheriff Joe Arpaio is absolutely nuts

Congressman Scott Perry Posts Fake Sacha Baron Cohen Award On His Campaign Website

In the latest installment of the show, Cohen spent time interviewing former Sheriff Joe Arpaio who when facing some rather serious legal charges was preemptively pardoned by President Donald Trump. "I may have to say yes", he replied calmly.

Sacha Baron Cohen continues to troll American political figures on "Who is America?" his current Showtime series, and one Republican lawmaker seems not quite up to speed. It confirms that Arpaio had no idea what Baron Cohen was saying and could barely understand him.

In the latest episode of Baron Cohen's satirical sensation "Who is America?" the actor posed as a Finnish YouTuber called OMGWhizzBoyOMG (real name: Ladislas Kekkonen) who invites the self-styled "toughest sheriff in America" on his show.

"I'm dying to bring it back", said premium cabler boss David Nevins today at the TCA of the gotcha series from the Borat creator, admitting it "will be a process" because of the secrecy involved. Another sees him asking if Donald Trump would give him "a golden shower", in reference to the alleged tape of the US President with two prostitutes in a Russian hotel room.

Cohen also unwrapped a Shopkins doughnut toy that claimed all guns should be taken away because they are risky. At one point on the video, Cohen has Arpaio talking to a tiny Shopkins donut as if it were an actual person, about the need for guns as guns are a protected right and in order to follow the law, people need access to guns. "I've been collecting them for the upcoming race war".

Bangladeshi photographer Shahidul Alam arrested over ‘provocative comments’
Armed men attacked a convoy of cars carrying the USA envoy to Bangladesh in the capital Dhaka on Saturday night. Alam had posted photos and a live video of the protests on his Facebook page a few hours before he was detained.

Arpaio is best known for illegally detaining Latinos and keeping inmates in brutal jail conditions during his 24-year tenure as sheriff of Arizona's Maricopa County.

"I started to get a little angry, a little sad, but I went through it", he told the Arizona Republic.

The former lawman announced in January that he meant to run for US Senate - though he might find his credibility rattled once again after being embarrassed by Baron Cohen.
