The highly controversial comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has a new series coming to Showtime called Who is America?. The series is set to premiere tonight, To celebrate the premiere he released a 10-minute clip in which we see him massively transform himself as he tricks a couple of gun rights activists. One of the main things they discuss is putting guns into the hands of children to protect themselves during mass shootings.
Cohen sits down with pro-gun rights activist Philip Van Cleave in an interview where he asks, “They tried to stop 4-year-old children from having access to guns? What is the logic?” He then brings Cleave’s onboard to help make a ridiculous instructional gun video for toddlers that was obviously designed to make Cleave look like an idiot.
WHO IS AMERICA? is a half-hour series from comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, in his return to series television for the first time in more than a decade in the genre he created first in Da Ali G Show. In the works over the past year, WHO IS AMERICA? explores the diverse individuals who populate our unique nation, and features Baron Cohen experimenting in the playground of 2018 America.
The seven-episode series Who is America? premieres tonight on Sunday, July 15th at 10pm.
