*Sacha Baron Cohen appears to have pulled off a new prank designed to test the racism limits of extreme right wingers.
Variety reports that the comedian and star of the political satire show “Who Is America?” infiltrated a conservative rally in Washington on Saturday, made his way on stage and got some people in the crowd to sing racist lyrics about President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the “Wuhan flu.”
The rally, titled “March for Our Rights 3,” was organized by the Washington Three Percenters, a right-wing militia organization. According to social media posts from the event’s organizers, Baron Cohen disguised himself as the leader of a political action committee who wanted to sponsor the rally. He brought his own security team who prevented organizers from kicking him off stage once he began singing and turning off the power to his microphone.
Once on stage and in disguise, Baron Cohen performed a call and response song with lyrics about injecting Obama, Clinton and Fauci with the “Wuhan flu” and chopping up members of the World Health Organization “like the Saudis do.”
He sang: “Obama, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu. Hillary Clinton, what we gonna do? Lock her up like we used to do. Fauci don’t know his head from his ass. He must be smoking grass. I ain’t lying, it ain’t no jokes. Corona is a liberal hoax. Dr. Fauci, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu. WHO, what we gonna do? Chop ’em up like the Saudis do.”
Some cheers could be heard in the crowd.
Baron Cohen regularly pranks unwitting victims into doing and saying embarrassing things on camera. In the first season of “Who Is America?” he pranked Bernie Sanders, Dick Cheney, Jill Stein, Roy Moore and O.J. Simpson. Showtime has yet to formally renew or cancel the satirical show, leading many fans to wonder if this prank will be featured in a possible second season.
