Sarah Palin slammed Sacha Baron Cohen and Showtime Tuesday on Facebook for their new prank series, claiming the comedian duped her and her daughter with a humiliating interview by posing as a disabled veteran.

And as an aside, for further insight into the wealthy corporate enablers of this kind of "joke", I'll add that after great costs on our part in time and resources to contribute to their "documentary" the Cohen/CBS/Showtime production team purposefully dropped my daughter and me off at the wrong Washington, DC airport after the fake interview, knowing we'd miss all flights back home to Alaska. has been told by a source that it was the American Programs Bureau that presented this opportunity to Palin, the same group who manages the likes of Larry King, Sean "P Diddy" Combs, Sir Richard Branson and Mikhail Gorbachev, to name a few.

Palin says she and one of her daughters were met by a man she assumes was Baron Cohen, who was heavily disguised as a bogus US military veteran and in a wheelchair.

"Out of respect for what I was led to believe would be a thoughtful discussion with someone who had served in uniform, I sat through a long "interview" full of Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm - but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen's chagrin", Palin said. "The disrespect of our U.S. military and middle-class Americans via Cohen's foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse ..."

"I'm excited and ready to explore the nuanced conversations and heated debates that all genders are having, both online and in private to make sense of how the hell we got here, and most importantly; how do we move forward in the most effective way?"

She also informed Cohen that Piper thinks he is a 'piece of s***'.

On Tuesday, Matt Drudge Tweeted and deleted a post about Palin being tricked by the Cohen prompting Palin to admit to being duped. Experience tells us it will be heavily edited, not pretty, and meant to humiliate.

Palin is now calling on Cohen and Showtime to "donate all proceeds to a charitable group that actually respects and supports American Vets".

She invites him to release the unedited footage and says, "HOW DARE YOU mock those who have fought and served our country". reached out to Showtime, with a spokesperson saying that the network had no comment.

Promo materials from the upcoming show, 'Who Is America?' also show that former Vice President Dick Cheney also sat for an interview with the comedian/prankster.
