A gun store in California caught British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen last February entering the store in disguise and under false pretenses, newly released surveillance footage shows, The Washington Examiner reported.
“The moment his words came out of his mouth, I was like ‘this guys is full of shit,” Norris Sweidan, the owner of Warrior One Gun and Ammo, told the local Fox News affiliate.
Critics Already HATE Sacha’s new show, The BBC Reports:
Who is America?, which aired on Channel 4 on Monday, sees the British prankster assume a series of outrageous personas to pillory US politics and culture.
Meanwhile, a US politician interviewed in the debut episode said he had been the victim of “a sick fraud”.
Dana Rohrabacher was seen in the programme appearing to endorse a fictitious scheme to train toddlers to use guns.
In a statement, the Republican congressman said he had only spoken “broadly” about self-defense and that he would have rejected the notion had it been put to him directly.
Former Congressman, Joe Walsh, was a recent victim of the failed comedian who claimed that Walsh wants to arm toddlers…
Walsh in a tweet said that Baron Cohen “fooled” him, but said he was against arming of kindergarteners.
‘Do I believe kindergarteners should be armed? Hell no,” he tweeted.
What can I say Bradley? @SachaBaronCohen got me. Do I believe kindergarteners should be armed? Hell no.
But, it's on me. Sacha fooled me good. Flew me out to DC for some made up friend of Israel award. I gotta live with it. https://t.co/r4juubOG9l

Walsh also told CNN that Baron Cohen duped him by telling him that he was “getting an award from some Israeli TV station because I’m a great supporter of Israel”.
“They [had me read off of a teleprompter] about this four-year-old child in Israel who, when a terrorist entered his classroom, somehow he grabbed the terrorist’s gun and held the terrorist at bay.”
He said as he read it, he thought “Well, this is kind of crazy, but it is Israel and Israel is strong on defence.” Later, “we found out this whole thing was made up.”
