Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen disguised himself as a disabled veteran for his new television show and convinced Sarah Palin to do a fake interview in which Cohen asks her about an alleged Chelsea Clinton sex-change operation, according to People Magazine.
“‘All of it was obnoxious,” the article said citing an anonymous source, “‘but I think the last straw was when the interviewer asked about what he claimed was a government-funded sex-change operation for Chelsea Clinton. Cohen was trying to get Governor Palin to say something homophobic and hateful.'”
Palin and her daughter traveled across the country for the interview last November.
The former governor of Alaska took to Facebook earlier this week to express her disgust with the comedian and his set-up.

“I join a long list of American public personalities who have fallen victim to the evil, exploitive, sick ‘humor’ of the British ‘comedian’ Sacha Baron Cohen, enabled and sponsored by CBS/Showtime,” the post said.
