Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin challenged comedian Sacha Cohen after he tricked her into a fake interview to donate proceeds to charities benefitting veterans – his response was telling.
Palin had expressed offense that he had portrayed himself a wounded U.S. military veteran.
“For my interview,” Palin said, “my daughter and I were asked to travel across the country where Cohen (I presume) 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,” Palin continued, “but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen’s chagrin.”
She challenged Showtime, CBS, and the comedian to donate the proceeds of the show to a charity for veterans.
