Sacha Baron Cohen's new show has to be seen to be believed

Sacha Baron Cohen's Who is America

"They should be arming the children". Erran Morad is a gruff, Israeli anti-terrorism expert waving the flag for a new programme he calls "Kinderguardians", which would train kids ages 3 to 16 how to use guns.

None of those turn up in tonight's first instalment of Who is America?, which features Baron Cohen, unrecognisable beneath heavy prosthetics, playing different characters, but Bernie Sanders does, answering the idiotic questions of Baron Cohen as Billy Ray Ruddick Jr, editor of a right-wing "truther" website.

This video highlights two well-established, undeniable facts about the Republican Party: they'll do and say anything to appease the gun lobby, and they'll do and say anything to appease Israel.

"We should think about putting guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens - good guys - whether they be teachers, talented children or highly trained preschoolers", former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott says, entirely straight-faced.

Walsh says he was told he was getting an award from an Israeli TV station for his ongoing support.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California said training school children how to shoot "might actually make us safer". At a time when many prominent conservatives have abandoned whatever tactics they formerly used to downplay their true intentions, and openly support bigotry, divisiveness and a unsafe fraud like Donald Trump, you might wonder why Baron Cohen feels the need to resort to his old Ali G playbook and dress up as various new characters to encourage these extremists to reveal what they don't even attempt to hide.

Gary Lineker: 'Kante is worth two players alone'
Honestly, it's a huge advantage to have Kante in the team. He runs everywhere and is a true pickpocket. He is worth two midfielders alone.

"The intensive three-week "Kinder Guardian" course introduces specially selected children from 12 to 4 years old to pistols, rifles, semiautomatics and a rudimentary knowledge of mortars", he said in the fake advertisement.

"In less than a month, a first grader can become a first grenader", Walsh says. Congressman-turned-radio host and well-known Twitter dunce Joe Walsh cuts a professional commercial-worthy testimony in support of the idea, signing off with "Happy shooting, kids".

"I'll probably laugh at myself" when the episode airs, Walsh told CNN, adding that he is a fan of Baron Cohen. Later, "we found out this whole thing was made up".

"A three-year-old can not defend itself from an assault rifle by throwing a Hello Kitty pencil case at it", says SC representative Joe Wilson. He said he does not believe America should train and arm 5-year-olds, and he detailed how he says he was tricked into endorsing the program. The former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin wrote a Facebook post on Tuesday confirming that she and her daughter had been "duped" into an interview for Cohen's series.

However, the hype and the expected interviews are going to have many watching Who is America? on Sunday, and I have a feeling it will be the most talked about thing on the internet come Monday morning.
