    Who Is America?

    I was excited that Sacha Baron Cohen is taking on Donald Trump 's America in a new series, but then I saw this: https://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Culture/e...ry?id=56555437

    He got Sarah Palin. Apparently he also got Sheriff Joe, Roy Moore, and Duck Cheney among others.

    And now I'm BEYOND excited. Sunday can't come soon enough.

    I actually felt bad for the art dealer: she was pretty damn hip.

    The first three segments were ok I guess, but dear GOD the last one was hilarious.

    When Wiz Khalifa was brought up I nearly peed my pants.

    Oh my god, this is amazing. It's almost too good to be true. How could these people possibly take him seriously?? The fact that he gets all of those republicans to back Kinder Guardians is mind-boggling. Like it's hilarious, but then when you start to think about how these people are the ones in control of the country, it suddenly becomes pretty scary, too. Can't wait to see the segments featuring Sarah Palin (who I absolutely loathe), Dick Cheney, Joe Arpaio, and Roy Moore...

    ALSO - How in the fuck are the handlers of these politicians not vetting these meetings well enough to catch this shit? That is the biggest mystery.

    Honestly those middle two segments were fucking terrible. No comedic or political value there.

    I guess they can't all be gold. That last one really is though

    Kinder Guardians was great, but the rest of the show sucked unfortunately. It was too unbelievable to be funny imo. How could anyone possibly be fooled when he shows a printed explanation of how to fit the 99% into the 1%, for example? The art segment is funny if you think poop is funny, I guess. There’s plenty of idiocy to expose in the art world, “poop is art” is such low hanging fruit.

    I also hated those “pause for laughter” moments.

    Nathan Fielder was one of the directors on episode 2!! Amazing. I need to know which segment.

    (he was also credited as a consulting producer on episode 1)


    This show is fucking bonkers. I have *howled* in laughter and, especially after episode 2, been utterly gobsmacked by how explicitly it shows America's poison heart.

    the right is a usual complaining that they were dumped, what i find funny is Bernie was also interviewed and totally saw through the gag i think most of them were total susceptible because they were offered lodging and a chance to be on TV, i believe to be the case with Walsh and especially Palin who everyone knows is a grifting media whore she even acknowledged the offer came through her speakers bureau which is basically as as an agent for politicians so she might have thought she was going to get paid and in the trump era any amount of celebrity make you viable as a politician her claim that Sacha posed as a vet is disingenuous and verified with a simple web search with Obama gone she really have no viable means of media attraction hence income she was a political one trick pony which is no longer viable the right knows it's core demographic is dying off which is why they are moving towards tactics such as gerrymandering and voter suppression and attacks on minorities, the trump attacks on immigrants are much more about how they vote than anything else the youth of America tend to be moving to more progressive ideas some that the democrats need to acknowledge

    This is why more people needed to vote for Bernie. Trump was elected President and now my man Louie_Cypher can't afford even one single goddamned period for his 213 word sentence.

    Not sure if intentional, but the irony is palpable.
