To answer your question simply, I will use this quote..


some critics say it appears to be designed to mock conservatives and Donald Trump supporters


If you’re a conservative, yes he did.

If you’re a liberal, no he didn’t.

Great improvising by the Libyans there, all the notes were kind of there but not in the right order and timing was a little relaxed

The only people who get mad are the ones with no clever comeback, and that is a LOT of people nowadays!

Thanks for your service. Hey, I actually liked Borat, but can someone tell me how Cohen can't be arrested for "Stolen Valor" by posing as a disabled US Veteran for monetary gain from his Showtime specials? Anyone? Just curious.


The Stolen Valor Act of 2013 (Pub.L. 113–12; H.R. 258) is a United States federal law that was passed by the 113th United States Congress. The law amends the federal criminal code to make it a crime for a person to fraudulently claim having received a valor award specified in the Act, with the intention of obtaining money, property, or other tangible benefit by convincing another that he or she received the award..



The current federal law is a revised version of a previous statute struck down by the Supreme Court of the United States in United States v. Alvarez. In Alvarez the Supreme Court ruled the arrest and prosecution of a citizen for wearing unearned military awards, who did so without criminal intent, violates their constitutional right to freedom of speech.

It was ammended by Obama I thought?


President Obama on Monday signed into law the latest version of the Stolen Valor Act, which makes it a federal crime for people to pass themselves off as war heroes by wearing medals they didn't rightfully earn. The legislation passed both houses of Congress with overwhelming majorities. An earlier version, passed in 2005, was struck down in June 2012 when the Supreme Court ruled that lying about military heroics was constitutionally protected speech unless there was intent to gain some benefit or something of value by fraud. The law signed Monday at the White House includes such a provision, making it illegal to make the claims with the intent to obtain money, property or other tangible benefits. Veterans organizations were quick to applaud Congress and the President for acting quickly on the amended version of the law.



Other lawmakers shared Heck's sentiment. "I'm very happy the President signed the Stolen Valor Act," said Rep. Paul Cook, R-Calif., a retired Marine colonel. "The new law ensures that we protect and honor veterans and the sacrifices they've made. When people make false claims of military rank and heroism, it does a tremendous disservice not only to our vets, but to the public."

Just found out he is doing a project to do with Trump University.
Maybe that is why Trump wants him punched in the face.





Lol.

By all means impersonate away. Sacha Cohen is a comedic genius.

Get some thicker skin people. It's comedy.

Title should read, "Did Sarah Palin go too far by impersonating a human being"

So funny " It's agains the law to impersonate military blah blah blah..."

Do you really give a #? How did this in anyway cause you harm personally. Insanity.

He needs to be reminded that he'd be speaking German if it weren't for the brave US military


The " Battle Of Britain " ended on 31st October 1940.

By my calculations that's 13 months and one week before The U.S. joined the war.

He's disgusting. Wonder if our friends across the pond will appreciate his humour this time.

I think you need to be reminded if it wasn't for American businessmen Hitler would have never risen to power. US government was sued by Henry Ford for bombing his german tank factories , and he won.

It's just comedy, relax.

He's also Jewish which makes it even sillier.

I think he's just trying to make money from the shock factor.
