Palin claims that she participated in what she thought was a legitimate Showtime documentary honoring American soldiers, but was actually a prank where Baron Cohen presented himself as a disabled veteran and subjected her to "Hollywoodism's [sic] disrespect and sarcasm" before she walked out.
Cohen responded to Palin's outrage and challenge in a sarcastic tweet Thursday that was made in the character of the interviewer.
"I am Dr. Billy Wayne Ruddick, founder/ceo/accountant of Truthbrary.org and it was I that interviewed you", he wrote, addressing Palin. "I did not say I was a war vet". "Ruddick" says he never stole valor by saying he served in the military when he didn't, and that when he said he was "in the service" he meant the United Parcel Service.
The letter goes on to praise Palin for "TELLING THE TRUTH about Obama's birth certificate and the location of Russia" before claiming that she had "been hit by a bullshit grenade" and was "bleeding FAKE NEWS".

"I don't need Sacha Cohen to tell me who America is, but I can tell him that America is a proud Nation which sprang from humble beginnings and a strong belief in God, virtue, and morality", he said in a statement.
Showtime had no comment, per usual.
"I did not know Sacha Cohen or that a Showtime TV series was being planned to embarrass, humiliate and mock not only Israel but also religious conservatives such as Sarah Palin, Joe Walsh and Dick Cheney", Moore said.
Cohen, as Ruddick, then mocked Palin for questioning the authenticity of former President Barack Obama's birth certificate and comments she made about being able to see Russian Federation from her home in Alaska.
