Sacha Baron Cohen's U.S. TV show disrupts ahead of first broadcast

"The disrespect of our US military and middle-class Americans via Cohen's foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse".

Earlier this week, former Alaskan Governor and would-be Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin lashed out at the comedian on Facebook, claiming he duped her and her daughter into an interview and subsequently dropped them off at the wrong airport.

"Who is America?", due to launch on Sunday on cable channel Showtime, has been shrouded in secrecy apart from a trailer showing former US defense secretary Dick Cheney signing a large bottle described as a water-boarding kit. His 2006 faux documentary film "Borat" ridiculed Kazakhstan and Middle Americans.

Speaking after Croatia's 2-1 win over England , Lovren told beIN Sports: 'It's something special, for me. Before this game they said we are exhausted but we showed in extra-time we had fresher legs than them.

On Twitter, Ruddick posted an open letter to Palin saying he never said he was a military veteran as Palin claimed, but rather "I was in the service - not military, but United Parcel, and I only fought for my country once - when I shot a Mexican who came onto my property". She was greeted by a man in a wheelchair, presumably Cohen, who identified himself as a veteran and proceeded to conduct "a long interview full of Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm".

Palin was responding to a tweet sent from the Twitter account of "Billy Wayne Ruddick", the fictional character Baron Cohan plays in his upcoming Showtime series Who Is America.

Former congressman turned conservative radio host, Joe Walsh, said he was also invited to Washington, DC to participate in an event honoring Israel. Walsh also called for a boycott of Showtime, a unit of CBS.

Their last bilateral series' defeat came in India in January 2017, with only a freak one-off loss to Scotland in the interim. Although England has the home advantage in the series, India is high on confidence due to their victory in T20I series.

Showtime has so far declined to comment on the series.

Cohen, as Ruddick, then mocked Palin for questioning the authenticity of former President Barack Obama's birth certificate and comments she made about being able to see Russian Federation from her home in Alaska. "I relish it too, when it's done well".

"It was I that interviewed you", Ruddick's note reads.

Pogba speaks on France vs Croatia match
Croatia , meanwhile, has played an extra game given the three 30-minute extra times they've participated in. I'm sure that we'll recover and we'll be fine - this is the World Cup final and there are no excuses.

It's yet to be seen exactly what Baron Cohen did to Palin, but we'll be closer to finding out when Who Is America? hits Australian screens on Stan this Sunday.
