Sacha Baron Cohen

SACHA STRIKES OUT: Lewandowski Immune to Provocateur’s Antics

Character assassination seems to be the name of the game in politics today, with a number of entrapment schemes playing out before our very eyes, day in and day out.

Just in the last few weeks alone we’ve seen an incredible uptick in mentions of secret recordings, both from Michael Cohen and Omarosa Manigault-Newman, that have been made of the President.  (Allegedly, in the case of Newman and definitely in the case of Cohen).

Furthermore, given the wholesale prevalence of video-capable devices in our everyday lives, there are no shortage of amateur “gotcha goons” out there, hoping to catch someone of note off-guard and compromised.

This is the sort of thing that Sacha Baron Cohen makes a living off of.  If he’s not careful, however, folks like Corey Lewandowski will have his paychecks bouncing.

President Trump’s former campaign manager joined the “Who is America?” hit-list on Sunday, but unlike his predecessors, was able to keep his cool throughout the entire appearance.

Lewandowski stuck to his talking points and wasn’t the least bit swayed by Cohen’s wild, undercover antics — which included the on-air praise of a fictional, far-right conspiracy theory about PBS being owned by the “Rastafarian lobby.”

Lewandowski kept his composure through the entirety of the interview, and was able to at least inject Cohen’s television program with some truth.
Asked flat-out whether he thought the president was racist — or “the least racist man alive” — his former campaign manager said: “I I had the privilege of standing and sitting next to candidate Trump — and now the president— for thousands of hours over my tenure running his campaign. Never, ever, ever did I ever hear him utter a racist word in his life. Ever.”
Something tells us that Who Is America? won’t be getting renewed for a second season.
