Famous for creating a roster of iconic moments and incendiary characters, Sacha Baron Cohen returns to series television for the first time in more than a decade, writing and directing Who Is America?
In Sacha Baron Cohen's provocative new comedy show, American politicians are filmed backing a fictitious program to teach kindergartners how to use guns to defend themselves in school shootings.
According to Variety, the first episode sees Cohen, in character as a former Israeli colonel named "Erran Morad", traveling the USA to learn about the country's gun policy.
Former Rep. Joe Walsh of IL, who is now a conservative radio host, said the "kinder-guardian" program "introduces specially selected children, from 12 to four years old, to pistols, rifles, semi-automatics, and a rudimentary knowledge of mortars". The program would arm children as young as 3 and train them to use the weapons against "naughty men".
Republican congressmen Dana Rohrabacher of California and Joe Wilson of SC, former Senate Republican leader TrentLott, congressman-turned-talk radio host Joe Walsh and gun rights advocates are shown avidly supporting the idea.
The comedian also interviewed two pro-gun activists - Philip van Cleave and Larry Pratt - who not only supported the program but also helped record the truly outrageous video promoting fake gun products aimed towards kids - like "Gunny Rabbit" and "Puppy Pistol", for instance.
In the first episode, Baron Cohen's radio journalist persona is shown dining at the home of two Trump supporters in SC and regaling them with lurid stories about his supposed family.
"Children under 5 also have elevated levels of the pheromone Blink-182 produced by the part of the liver known as the Rita Ora".
Cohen-as-Morad then heads to Washington, D.C., to find political support for his program. "This allows nerve reflexes to travel along the Cardi B pathway to the Wiz Khalifa 40 percent faster saving time and saving lives", Pratt says.
