Former Congressman Barney Frank and disgraced former football star O.J. Simpson was one of Sacha Baron Cohen's goals in the last episode of Showtime "Who is America?"
Over the course of seven episodes, Cohen has cheated out a host of personalities including former Vice President Dick Cheney, former Arizona Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, and former US Senate candidate Roy Moore from Alabama. Sunday was the show's season finale, and Cohen tweeted before the episode that the series would not return for a second season .
In the first segment, Frank sat opposite Cohen, disguised as conservative conspiracy theorist Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., who runs the fictional TRUTHBRARY.org. Frank, one of the few liberal politicians who had found himself in Cohen's crosshairs, emphatically rejected Ruddick's claim that President Trump was the largest president this country had ever seen.
Ruddick tried in vain to convince Frank that Trump was not really talking about touching women on the infamous "Access Hollywood" band, which appeared a few weeks before the 2016 presidential election. Ruddick said Trump was trying to help Billy Bush fight a rat infestation. Ruddick played a clear (and ridiculous) adulterated shot to support his theory, but Frank did not.
Ruddick changed the subject matter to Pizzagate, a viral conspiracy theory involving the groundless claim that Hillary Clinton and other prominent Democrats are involved in a pedophile ring dating from a D.C. Frank finally left the interview after Ruddick suggested that the notation "Child – Free" on one of the restaurant 's receipts meant that the pizzeria gave away children.
Cohen had more success Simpson, the former NFL running back, who in 1995 was not found guilty of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her boyfriend Ron Goldman. In a hidden part of the camera, Cohen appeared as Gio Monaldo, an insane Italian photographer flanked by a woman whom Simpson repeatedly described as "gorgeous."
Monaldo, in Cohen's fake Italian accent, introduced Simpson to his Companion as a former player for "the Buffalo Billah," but she did not get the reference. She also did not connect when Monaldo Simpson's appearances in the "The Naked Gun" series. Only when Monaldo feigned a stab toward her neck did she realize to Simpson, "Oh, Mama, O.J.," she said, before reaching out to greet him. "So nice to meet you!"
When the woman left the room, Simpson told Monaldo that she was gorgeous and Cohen's character agreed, but added, "Sometimes I want to kill her."
"Hey," Simpson said, laughing nervously. [Stop] Stop. "
Monaldo laughed as he suggested various ways to kill his girlfriend. "Maybe I'll send her on a bungee jump, you know, oh the string!"
"Extra Long Cord", offered Simpson. "Bang!"
At one point Monaldo Simpson told of a friend who was "obsessed with what happened to the woman that night" and said the friend wanted to talk to him about it. "We want you to be 100 percent truthful about how you're doing with it," added Monaldo.
"Hey, hey, I did not get away with anything," Simpson said.
"Me and you, we have something in common," Monaldo told Simpson. You know, it's not what it sounds like, in Italian it means "someone who murders women."
"No, I do not kill anyone," said Simpson, laughing.
Sunday's episode lacked part of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who said before the July premiere of the show that she had been sent to a fake interview with Cohen, saying that Cohen was "heavily disguised". as a disabled US veteran with "a false wheelchair." A Twitter account for Cohen's Ruddick character seemed to confirm the Palin Prank but Showtime complained that Cohen had used a fake wheelchair when Ruddick appeared Cohen on a scooter during the series.
While it seems that the Palin segment is not seen, Cohen nodded to the former Vice Presidential candidate in the final and recognized her as a "special advertiser" to consultant (unintentionally). " Read More :
