Sacha Baron Cohen's new show has to be seen to be believed

"I don't need Sacha Cohen to tell me who America is, but I can tell him that America is a proud Nation which sprang from humble beginnings and a strong belief in God, virtue, and morality", Moore said.

It's devastating, gobsmacking stuff that, in a normal era, would sink a political career, but this is not a normal era, which is why we need Sacha Baron Cohen more than ever. They don't care if it's politically correct to shoot a mentally deranged gunman.

"A three-year-old can not defend itself from an assault rifle by throwing a Hello Kitty pencil case at it", says SC representative Joe Wilson.

Larry Pratt, executive director emeritus of Gun Owners of America said "toddlers are pure, uncorrupted by fake news or homosexuality". Did Wilson say that we should strap live ammo on unpredictable, uncontrollable children because he was anxious he'd lose his A+ rating from the NRA if he didn't, or because he didn't want to abandon the far right's absolute knee jerk support of Israel, or because he actually believes it'd be a good idea to give guns to three-year-olds who are still learning how to speak, think and coexist with one other? The science behind this program is proven. "In less than a month", he says, "a first-grader can become a first-grenader".

Wilson was not the only current or former politician interviewed by Cohen's character for the show.

The seven-episode series marks Baron Cohen's first television project in a decade after he launched his comedy career as subversive white English rapper Ali G., whose interviews included Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich. At age 4, a child processes images 80 percent faster than an adult, meaning that essentially, like owls, they can see in slow motion.

Pratt and Walsh echo Lott's refrain, and the video closes with Walsh saying "happy shooting, kids". "Then they had me read about this 4-year-old child in Israel who, when a terrorist entered his classroom, somehow he grabbed the terrorist's gun and held the terrorist at bay".

This video highlights two well-established, undeniable facts about the Republican Party: they'll do and say anything to appease the gun lobby, and they'll do and say anything to appease Israel. Former VP candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin, former VP Dick Cheney, and radio talk show host Joe Walsh also reportedly havebeen duped by Cohen in various ways.

Sacha Baron Cohen, the controversial comedian behind the movies Borat and Bruno, has tricked multiple GOP congressmen into supporting a fake initiative to arm toddlers with guns as a part of his upcoming show Who Is America?
