Who Is America? season finale didn't show Sarah Palin, but it did troll her by giving her a "credit"
Palin was missing from Sacha Baron Cohen's final episode of the season, but she did receive a "Special Publicity Consultant (Inadvertent)" credit at the end. Showtime entertainment president Gary Levine hinted that Palin's interview wouldn't be shown when he said earlier this month, "there are several people who have thrown themselves in front of buses that may not be headed their way" when asked about Palin. Showtime confirmed Cohen's Billy Wayne Ruddick, Jr. character interviewed Palin after she accused him of misrepresenting himself as a disabled veteran. Showtime said in a statement last month, "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." ALSO: Cohen targeted O.J. Simpson in the season finale by joking about killing women.
