Did you happen to get a bio on the Dolphin? I might do a news story on it for my college ED. class.


No, but I believe he said it lives in Oahu.

And FWIW, he was pranking a Trump-supporting couple who handled that, and a whole lot of worse stuff, quite well.

So did you watch the program? Happen to see the first person they went with, Bernard the Socialist Sanders. He also plays an ultra-liberal character from Portland whos wife is having a relationship with a dolphin.


no I did not watch his garbage.

and if he pranked Bernie Sanders, so what. most of these people prank one leftist for every ten conservatives and claim 'balance'.

"I know exactly what happened on the show even though I don't."

How's everything on Virtue Mountain? Can people see your signaling from up there?

maybe not 'mocking' but he was being hugely insulting and disrespectful by pretending to be one.
is he really supposed to be proud of taking advantage of Governor Palin's generosity? she participated expecting to be able to discuss veterans issues and her support of same. unbelievably low thing to do.


People make assumptions - we all do. This is the basis for his whole schtick

There has been widespread misinformation over the past week about the character of Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., Ph.D., performed by Sacha Baron Cohen on the Showtime comedy series Who Is America? Baron Cohen did not present himself as a disabled veteran, and viewers nationwide who watched the premiere on Sunday can now attest to that. In Sunday’s episode, during an interview with Senator Bernie Sanders, Baron Cohen in character as Dr. Ruddick was asked by the Senator if he is disabled, and he stated that he is not and uses a mobility scooter to conserve his energy. In addition, Baron Cohen never presented himself as a veteran of the U.S. military to former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin during the booking process or during the filming of her interview, and contrary to her claims he did not appear in a wheelchair. In both the interview with Governor Palin and the interview with Senator Sanders, he did not wear military apparel of any kind.


You also made an assumption without having seen the show

I understand why some people don't like him, but honest to god - while he is funny (in my opinion) the humor is sporadic and almost incidental to what the rest of it is. And the rest of it is pretty thinky

she was invited to discuss veterans issues, esp disabled/health issues

she sees what appears to be a middle age man in a scooter.

understandable inference.

honestly, how many able-bodied people use scooters?

does the false pretense bother you at all?

what kind of man does that? especially to a woman?

and the tv people dropped Governor Palin and daughter at the wrong airport so they missed their flight. do you find that to be amusing? look, a woman and her daughter stranded at an airport, ha ha.

OMG you are right that poor woman......
I agree with you now after watching it I suggest we write an angry letter.

"Dear Channel 4
Your recent show was very undecent and very nasty of you by stranding that poor evil witch lady and her spawn in what can only be described as hell...the wrong airport".
Yours sincerly

His character does, he even says it's so he can 'conserve his body energy'. You would have known this if you watched the show instead of virtue signaling.

what was she supposed to do, have an advance man verify the guy in the scooter was disabled? she may not even have an advance man.

anyhoo the show finished 70th Sunday night with less than 400k viewers so I guess not many people were interested.

Yeah, it's called checking someone's bona fides and about 5 seconds on Google would have given her an answer. Or she's just a re-re.

If people just listened to what he said, they’d have smelled a rat.

No need for google when he’s dropping hints right in front of your face.

You need to be a tad intelligent and self-aware to pick up on it.

since I didn't watch it I have no idea what hints, if any, he dropped.

so Bernie Sanders and Ted Koeppel are doofi also? he may be slime but he's very good at pranking people.
