  • Sacha Baron Cohen's U.S. TV show disrupts ahead of first broadcast

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin had harsh words for Sacha Baron Cohen earlier this week upon learning she'd been pranked by the actor-comedian for his new TV series, "Who Is America?".

Cohen's in character as his latest persona, Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr, Ph.D, when interviewing Palin for his forthcoming seven-episode comedy Who Is America? Then it got weird.

"If Showtime airs a defamatory attack on my character, I may very well be involved in another", he wrote.

On Twitter, Ruddick posted an open letter to Palin saying he never said he was a military veteran as Palin claimed, but rather "I was in the service - not military, but United Parcel, and I only fought for my country once - when I shot a Mexican who came onto my property".

"Ruddick, a totally real individual who only joined Twitter back in April, went on to tell Palin he "[has] always admired you for TELLING THE TRUTH about Obama's birth certificate and the location of Russian Federation.

He also adds, "I have always admired you for TELLING THE TRUTH about Obama's birth certificate and the location of Russian Federation".

"You used to hunt the most unsafe animals in the country, like wolves and people on welfare", the statement concluded.

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

Former U.S. Republican congressman Joe Walsh, now a conservative talk radio host, said he was persuaded to do an interview on Israel.

Roy Moore issued a vague threat to sue Showtime, the channel on which the new Sacha Baron Cohen series will be televised Sunday.

He goes on: "I don't need Sacha Cohen to tell me who America is", adding, "As an American, I would never hide my identity and deceive others only to mock and ridicule them as this Showtime series is created to do".
