Cohen is gearing up for a new series.
Sacha Baron Cohen took to Twitter on the fourth of July to troll Donald Trump. The tweet contained a trailer that featured an old clip of Trump slamming Cohen for his work on The Dictator. “This third-rate character named Sacha Baron Cohen, I only wish he that would’ve been punched in the face so many times right now, he’d be in a hospital,” gloated Trump. “It was disgraceful,” he continued. “He ought to be fired immediately. Sacha Baron Cohen, go to school. Learn about being funny. You don’t know sh*t.”
The internet immediately began to speculate that Cohen was working on a new project, one that would involve trolling the President in person. Now, it is being reported that the comedian and actor will be working on a show for Showtime called Who is America. Variety broke the story, and claims that a few episodes of the series have already been planned or recorded. According to Vulture, posters with the show’s title have been spotted in Brooklyn, with the catchphrase “You’ve been warned.” Details surrounding the premise of the show are scarce, but one thing is for certain; politics and American history will be the main focus.
