In fact, we just learned the name of the show four days ago, thanks to eagle-eyed Vulture editors who found a series of posters in Brooklyn over the weekend featuring Cohen's name and the show title, along with the tagline, "You've been warned".

Palin had slammed Baron Cohen for duping her and one of her daughters with a bogus interview, saying he posed a disabled military veteran and has called on Baron Cohen and Showtime to donate the proceeds of their series.

He joins former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin among those who have preemptively gone public to announce they were duped by the actor-comedian ahead of his show's Sunday night debut. He also told Breitbart he believed the 2017 interview with Cohen was live, being watched by 2 million people, although he was never expressly told that.

"When I disagreed, he showed me a photograph on his laptop of a huge inaugural crowd and a man holding a digital clock on a pole", Koppel said.

Presumably not a fan is Roy Moore.

Showtime defended Cohen's antics in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter. Moore added, "Alabama does not respect cowards who exhibit such traits!"

For Arpaio, Cohen pretended to be a Trump-supporting Finnish comedian and asked him multiple "highly inappropriate" questions involving sexual acts that made Arpaio feel "very uncomfortable", the former sheriff, who is locked in a three-way primary battle with Rep. Georgia talk-radio host Austin Rhodes told local television station WRDW that Cohen appeared on his show while posing as a left-wing college professor.

Cohen "is the premier provocateur of our time but not for the sake of "gotcha" moments", Showtime CEO David Nevins said. In the footage, Cheney signs a "waterboard kit" presented to him by Cohen's character. In the past few days, several politicians have come forward to say they were pranked by Cohen for his show into thinking their meetings were real interviews. The former Alaska governor called Cohen's comedy "evil, exploitive, sick".

Arpaio, who is running for U.S. Senate, says he's not sure if he'd take any legal action.

"Strangest interview of my life", Walsh wrote.

"Who is America?", due to launch on Sunday on cable channel Showtime, has been shrouded in secrecy apart from a trailer showing former USA defense secretary Dick Cheney signing a large bottle described as a water-boarding kit.
