Showtime chief says risk paid off with Sacha Baron Cohen TV show

Showtime chief says risk paid off with Sacha Baron Cohen TV show

In this May 22, 2018, file photo, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio speaks during a campaign event in Phoenix.

In response, Arpaio bragged about his tenacity, but soon after Cohen asked Arpaio "If Donald Trump calls you up after this and says 'Sheriff Joe, I want to offer you an unbelievable blowjob, ' would you say yes?"

The fake award is the same one Cohen tricked former Representative Joe Walsh into receiving when he fell for the for the actor's televised interview under the disguise of Israeli Colonel Erran Morad for Who is America? Moments later, Cohen asks Arpaio if he thinks "Donald Trump might have had a golden shower", to which Arpaio quickly responds, "It wouldn't surprise me". "I will say, over and over again, guns don't kill, people kill".

The show also features Arpaio arguing with a plastic Shopkins toy - an anti-firearms "D'lish Doughnut".

Cohen offered D'lish Donut's reply: "But I want the guns to be taken back because they are risky!"

The segment sees Arpaio talking to one of Cohen's characters - a Finnish YouTube star called OMGWhizzBoyOMG - about his toy unboxing videos and tells an incredulous Arpaio that he owns over 43 guns for the "upcoming race war". "I don't know what he's saying about America", Nevins admitted but, "He had me at hello".

Arpaio - known as the "toughest sheriff in America" - told Breitbart News last month that he had been tricked into the Cohen interview.

"I started to get a little angry, a little sad, but I went through it", he said. His aggressive tactics ultimately led to a criminal conviction after he violated a court order in a racial-profiling case.

Cohen interviewed Arpaio, 86, in a segment that aired on Sunday as part of his "Who Is America?" series on Showtime. He was later convicted of the misdemeanor, but was spared a possible jail sentence when he was pardoned by President Donald Trump.

Former vice president Dick Cheney signed a "waterboard kit" for Baron Cohen and Georgia lawmaker Jason Spencer was forced to resign after screaming the N-word and exposing himself on the show.
