Shame Them: Everyone Who Endorsed Arming Preschoolers on Sacha Baron Cohen's ‘Who Is America?'
Photo Illustration by The Daily BeastLeading up to Sunday's premiere of Sacha Baron Cohen's new political satire stunt series, Who Is America?, there was a media blitz of politicians and talking heads pre-emptively getting ahead of the stupid-ass things they said to Cohen when he was in disguise as one of his Who Is America? characters.

From Sarah Palin to Roy Moore, who is even threatening to sue for defamation, they're claiming they were "duped" into saying horribly offensive things—in line with extremist conservative views—by Cohen and his crew out on an apparent "total right-wing hit job."

It's a hilarious scramble to save face, because here's the thing: folks, you can't trick people into saying things they really believe. When these people thought they were in the company of a friendly ear with Cohen posing as a fringe conservative, they let their terrifying opinions fly with reckless abandon. More, they knew they were being filmed. Imagine what they say behind closed doors.
