A message purporting to be from a Sacha Baron Cohen character on his new Showtime series is firing back at Sarah Palin, saying she’s been “hit by a bullshit grenade” and is “bleedin’ fake news.”
The tweet from “Billy Wayne Ruddick” was posted Thursday, with a note for “Vice President Palin” following her complaints about being misled by Baron Cohen.
Ruddick is the same name of a character comedian Baron Cohen reportedly plays in his forthcoming show “Who is America?” which premieres on Sunday. Palin, a 2008 vice presidential nominee, says she was duped into participating in an interview for the satirical show after Baron Cohen pretended to be a military veteran.
In the Twitter message, the fictional character says he was “in the service — not military, but United Parcel.”
I love this portion:
“I have always admired you for TELLING THE TRUTH about Obama’s birth certificate and the location of Russia. But ma’am I do believe you have been hit by a bullshit grenade and are now bleedin’ FAKE NEWS.”
This is what Cohen does, and he is damn good at it.
Palin has been all over the place bitching about this prank and playing the victim, but in the end, all she has really accomplished is to ensure that there will be more eyes watching the premiere of this show on Sunday than I think anybody could have possibly hoped for.
As usual, she has simply shot herself in the foot once again, and that is yet another refutation of her ability to handle a firearm. Or her mouth.
