Sarah Palin says she was duped into interview with Sacha Baron Cohen

Sarah Palin is calling on Sacha Baron Cohen to donate all the profits from his upcoming Showtime series to military veterans’ groups after saying she was duped into an interview with the comedian when he pretended to be a wounded warrior.

The Daily Mail reports that the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said she unknowingly participated in an interview for what turned out to be Cohen’s just-announced satirical series, “Who is America

“This ‘legit opportunity’ to honor American Vets and contribute to a ‘legit Showtime historical documentary’ was requested of me via a speakers bureau,” Palin said.

Palin, 54, says she traveled to Washington, D.C., to speak with Cohen, who she claims “had heavily disguised himself as a disabled US Veteran, fake wheelchair and all.” “Out of respect for what I was led to believe would be a thoughtful discussion with someone who had served in uniform, I sat through a long ‘interview’ full of Hollywoodism’s disrespect and sarcasm — but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen’s chagrin,” Palin said.

he interviewed a Grand Wizard of the KKK . Cohen asked him if he had any lotion and the guy took out his gun and , pointed it at Cohen's head and said "What did you say?"

I bet a dollar Sacha Baron Cohen doesn't have much chagrin and if she got mad and stomped out, that was exactly what he hoped for.

Maybe she thought "chagrin" meant "delight". You know, dontcha, from readin' all them papers and magazines and such.

As opposed to metaphorically, intellectually removed it and walked off, tripping over the still-attached cord?

That suggests to me that Cohen paid a fee for her appearance. Is Sarah going to give the money back, or is she saying that only Cohen should be donating his earnings because she got suckered?

People lost jobs over their interactions with him on Barat. Some of them didn't deserve it. I can see that some of what he does is funny, but if it actually needlessly harms innocent people, I prefer not to watch.
