Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen’s newest anti-American show debuted to paltry ratings on Showtime this week; raising serious questions over whether viewers are interested in the GOP-bashing material.
According to Fox News, ‘Who is America?’ debuted to just 315,000 viewers among the key demographic age of 18-49; a total catastrophe for Showtime who have been embroiled in controversy regarding Cohen’s content.
“While the network is banking on digital viewers to lift these totals, the low turnout is likely disappointing for the ‘Borat’ actor, who pranked a variety of political figures including Bernie Sanders, Roy Moore, Joe Arpaio and Trent Lott for his show. Cohen and Showtime kept a tight lip on details of the series — the comedian disguised himself to pull off his elaborate prank interviews – but the lack of promotion may be a root cause of the disappointing viewership figures,” writes Fox.
Cohen found himself in hot water this week after it was revealed he impersonated a disabled American veteran to land an interview with former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin.
Palin slammed the comedian for the shameless impersonation, calling on Showtime to donate the profits from that episode towards a Veteran charity of their choosing.

HOLLYWEIRD: Anti-Trump Celebrities HOST COUNTER State of the Union
Hollywood celebrities and liberal elites turned out for a counter State of the Union Monday evening, offering a blistering “response” to the President’s joint address to Congress and the American people one day before he delivers the speech.
According to Fox News, the star-studded event -dubbed the People’s State of the Union- was hosted by radical left-wing actor Mark Ruffalo, who called for all anti-Trump activists to join the “resistance” movement against the President’s “racist” agenda.
“We’re going to set our sights to continue that work in the next year, and strengthen our bonds and commitments to each other, for long after the Trump era comes to its rightful end,” said Ruffalo. “We ain’t stopping with Trump, OK?”
Hollywood documentarian Michael Moore also slammed Trump and his supporters, saying “We must remove and replace the system and the culture that gave us Trump in the first place […] We must also cleanse our American soul of our white male privilege.”
The three-hour-long anti-Trump event was hosted by far-left organizations such as Planned Parenthood and the Women’s March.
HOLLYWEIRD: Crazed Rob Reiner Says Trump ‘THREATENS’ Global Democracy
Hollywood filmmaker Rob Reiner continued his all-out war with President Trump Tuesday, accusing the Commander-in-Chief of posing a direct “threat” to the United States and other “democracies throughout the world.”
The hyper-liberal celebrity trashed Trump on social media, saying his “denial” to accept Russian election interference was posing a direct threat to American democracy; adding the US no longer has “a patriot in the White House.”
“Once again our entire intelligence and law enforcement communities have unequivocally stated that Russia has attacked and continues to attack our democracy and democracies throughout the world. Trump’s continual denial threatens US. We don’t have a patriot in the Whitehouse,” Reiner tweeted.

The comedian’s harsh rhetoric echos similar comments he’s made in recent weeks, slamming the President as a “racist” and a “criminal,” and going so far as to call for the “last big battle” of the American Civil War.
