Sacha Baron Cohen pranks Sarah Palin for new show

Palin appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday to talk about the interview Baron Cohen staged for his new Showtime satirical series "Who is America?". "The disrespect of our US military and middle-class Americans via Cohen's foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse".

Palin, reiterating and expanding on a Facebook post she wrote earlier this week explaining her appearance on Cohen's show, discussed why she ultimately "literally, physically removed" her mic and walked out of the interview.

She is challenging Baron Cohen and Showtime to donate proceeds from the show to a veterans' charity.

Showtime has so far declined to comment on the series.

Sarah Palin's got it all wrong, according to Sacha Baron Cohen!

Showtime, however, has been relying on viral marketing for the show.

The former Alaska governor called Cohen "sick" and 'evil, ' saying that she eventually stormed out of the interview when he began claiming Chelsea Clinton had undergone a 'government funded sex change'.

Walsh tweeted on Wednesday that he believed Palin's account because "i too was duped ... it was much of the same she experienced". She claimed she had been approached to participate in a "legit opportunity" to honor "American vets". "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". "If Showtime airs a defamatory attack on my character, I may very well be involved in another", Moore said.

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.

He takes swipes at the one-time vice presidential hopeful for questioning President Barack Obama's nativity, and even addresses the letter to "Vice-President Palin" though she and running mate John McCain lost to Obama and Joe Biden in the 2008 presidential election.

He went on to berate Cohen for hiding his identity in order to "deceive others only to mock and ridicule them" and implied Cohen's style of humor is anti-American.
