Sacha Baron Cohen hits back in character at 'fake news' Sarah Palin

Cohen poses at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards at the Royal Opera House in London

Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen has fired back at USA politician Sarah Palin in character as the "veteran" who duped her in an interview for his new show.

But she says Baron Cohen had "heavily disguised himself" as a disabled USA veteran in a wheelchair. The British comedian just clapped back at Sarah's claim he tricked her into believing he was a disabled veteran. He said he met a wheelchair-bound man who was equipped with an oxygen tank.

The comedian filmed the latest stunt for his forthcoming Showtime series, "Who Is America?" - which is expected to feature a spectrum of new, high-profile gags.

Sarah Palin is livid after being duped by prankster Sacha Baron Cohen.

"Everybody loves seeing well-known people get duped", Koppel told The Hollywood Reporter.

"I did NOT say I was a War Vet".

Koppel ended the interview soon after a brief exchange, according to the magazine.

England lose out to Croatia in devastating semi-final
Croatia will now play France in Sunday's final and for England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford it was a case of what might have been. Bournemouth South Police said there will be three main road closures in the town centre at the end of the game.

Meanwhile, Moore threatened a lawsuit against Showtime, if the network "airs a defamatory attack on [his] character, Variety reported". Moore said he did not receive any other financial compensation for his travel other than expenses.

"Another list of unfunny lies, this time typewritten for all to see; a pathetic attempt to punk not just my daughter and me again, but now the public", Palin wrote on Facebook Thursday.

Arpaio says some of the sexually provocative words the Borat actor used made him "very uncomfortable".

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".

"It was proposed to me as a legitimate interview to speak about veterans' issues in our military and current events to a new audience", Palin said on the morning news show. She ultimately left, however, after claiming to have experienced "a long "interview" full of Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm". "But ma'am, I do believe you have been hit by a bulls-t grenade and are bleeding fake news".

Cohen's Showtime series premieres on July 15. "Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics".
