Disgraced former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the latest victim to be tricked into saying something embarrassing by provocateur Sasha Baron Cohen his new Showtime series “Who Is America?”.
Posing as a Finnish “Unboxing” YouTube celebrity who goes by the name, OMGWhizzBoyOMG, Cohen duped Arpaio into saying he would accept o*ral sex from President Donald Trump.
“Who Is America?” features a disguised Cohen interviewing a variety of Americans – many are recognizable political figures – and gets them to say and do ridiculous things.
In the interview, Cohen spoke to Arpaio about his “[email protected] jobs” but played it up as if it were a legitimate employment term.
In a series of questions that Arpaio later described as “rather bizarre,” Cohen set the former Sheriff up by saying, “My first job was a [email protected] job from my mother and it was newspapers,” Cohen said.
That chat about “[email protected] jobs” lead to his question about another kind of job.
“If Donald Trump calls you up after this and says, ‘Sheriff Joe, I want to offer you an amazing bl*ow job,’ would you say yes?” Cohen asked.
“I may have to say yes,” Arpaio replied.
Cohen also asked Arpaio if he thought President Trump was involved in a “g*lden sh*wer” s*x act – a claim made in the Steele dossier which contains several verified allegations of Trump’s connections to Russia.
“Wouldn’t surprise me,” Arpaio replied. (Wow.)
After he was duped by Cohen, Arpaio told the conservative site Breitbart that Cohen tricked him into an interview and that he “felt uncomfortable” with some of the content.
“I felt uncomfortable with some of the words they were using but I had to live through it. I am not the type of guy who gets up and walks out,” he said at the time. “I never walked out in thousands of interviews. I just take it.”
In a past episode, Cohen spoke to former Vice President Dick Cheney and praised him for the waterboarding torture that was used during the Bush administration. Cohen got him to autograph a “waterboard kit,” that was nothing more than a jug of water.
On another show in the series, Georgia State Senator Jason Spencer resigned after he appeared on the series, dropped his trousers and repeatedly used the “n-word.”
