It appears there are two possible ways to react if you’re a famous American politician and have recently found yourself humiliated at the hands of Sacha Baron Cohen on his Showtime series Who Is America?. If you’re Georgia Republican state Rep. Jason Spencer, you might pull up your pants and resign in an attempt to save what little shred of dignity you might have left. If you’re Sarah Palin, you would throw an internet tantrum and claim you were duped. Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama (and creep) Roy Moore looked like a fool on Who Is America? in a segment involving a fake pedophile detector, and now he’s suing.
Sacha Baron Cohen’s new Showtime series Who Is America? is a great show if you enjoy cringing over clueless bigots enthusiastically making an ass of themselves (sometimes literally). One of the biggest draws was the promise of an appearance by Sarah Palin. Sadly, we might not get to watch such entertaining programming.
At the rate he’s going with tricking politicians, I wouldn’t be surprised if the finale of Who Is America? includes Sacha Baron Cohen somehow getting Donald Trump to sign the deed to America back over to THE QUEEN. Like they would be so bad.
It didn’t seem like it took all that much for Sacha (disguised as an expert in anti-terrorism maneuvers) to get Georgia Republican state Rep. Jason Spencer to act like a dipshit and yell racial slurs, show the world he thought Asia was one giant country, and drop his panties. That didn’t exactly sit well with the GOP on the homestead, and Jason has resigned from his position. Continue reading
Sacha Baron Cohen Strikes Again: A Georgia State Representative Faces Calls To Resign After Getting Duped
Sarah Palin is about to have some company sitting on the Idiots Who Got Burned By Sacha Baron Cohen bench. Georgia Rep. Jason Spencer is the latest stupid piece of shit to get caught with their pants down on camera for Sasha’s Showtime series Who Is America?. Like, literally. Sasha got this tool to pull down his pants and come at him bare-butt first yelling “I’ll touch you, I’ll make you a homosexual. I’ll touch you, USA!”. I wish I were kidding, but you and I both know irony is as dead as our democracy.
Jason was also easily tricked into repeatedly shouting The N-Word, thought it was a great idea to take up-skirt pictures of women wearing burkas, and showed that his ignorant ass doesn’t know the difference between China, Japan or Vietnam.
Sarah Palin, America’s unofficial mascot of the “I wanna speak to the manager” set, seems to pride herself on being a real no-nonsense, straight-shooting, human bullshit detector. Except that she clearly isn’t. Sarah recently admitted that she was bamboozled by a disguised Sacha Baron Cohen for his upcoming Showtime series, Who is America?. A better title might be Who in America is Still Getting Tricked by Sacha Baron Cohen 12 Years After Borat? The answer is Sarah Palin is. And she’s super-duper gosh-darn peeved-off about it.
The first teaser trailer for the cursed child that is the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody is out. In it, we get our first look at why Hollywood has been fresh out of wigs since 2007, when they first started trying to get this movie made! As a refresher, first Sacha Baron Cohen was going to play Freddie Mercury but after dicking around for 3 years, Sacha bounced because the band wanted to make a feel-good movie that didn’t focus on Freddie. During that time, they lost a couple of directors but eventually Bryan Singer was hired. Last year they found their new Freddie in Rami Malek and started production. Then Bryan got fired and they replaced him with Dexter Fletcher. Kudos to Dexter for finally getting this ship launched.
Here’s the trailer.
We all know that Freddie had himself an unruly mouthful of jack o’lantern choppers so, getting those right were paramount to pulling together Rami’s look. And I don’t think they did them right. Something is off here. Freddie’s choppers were elegantly wasted. When his mouth was open, they sprung forth like an audience giving him a well deserved standing ovation. When his mouth was closed, he had a sensual, slightly pouty look. When Rami’s mouth is closed he looks like he’s smuggling an egg. And when his mouth is open, it just looks like perfectly normal dentures, that are comically three times bigger than they should be. All the same, I love the costumes and whatever combination of Freddie/Rami vocals they’re using here sound great. I will watch this movie but I’m bringing incense and a Freddie prayer candle with me to the theater. There are some spirits that deserve all the deference I can muster.
