"The disrespect of our US military and middle-class Americans via Cohen's foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse".

Moore, a Republican who lost a controversial election in December to a Democrat rival after allegations surfaced that he initiated an encounter with a 14-year-old girl decades before, is the latest conservative victim of Baron's new series that debuts Sunday. Moore said he was tricked when he was invited to receive an award for his "strong support of Israel".

Baron Cohen successfully lampooned a host of prominent figures in American politics, including former Democratic presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Howard Dean. In her post, she didn't say exactly what he did, but a source familiar with the interview told People that "the last straw" was a question about "a government-funded sex-change operation for Chelsea Clinton".

At one point in the interview, Palin said "enough was enough", took off her microphone and walked out.

Former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio says Cohen posed as a Finnish comedian to dupe him.

"Expenses were paid, and I received no private remuneration for my time or participation", Moore said in a statement.

Pompeo denied that the talks went poorly, telling pool reporters that progress was made "in every element of our discussions". Separately, the USA has accused North Korea of violating a United Nations sanctions cap on refined oil products.

You'll recall, Palin blasted Cohen for pulling a prank on her that will, apparently, air on his new Showtime series, "Who Is America?". which premieres this weekend. She said the producers reached out to her through a speakers' bureau. She ultimately left, however, after claiming to have experienced "a long "interview" full of Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm".

"Here's the truth @SarahPalinUSA #MAGA #buildthewall #boycottsashacohen", @BillyWRuddick tweeted Thursday, along with an image of a letter made to look as though it was produced on a typewriter. "But ma'am, I do believe you have been hit by a bulls-t grenade and are bleeding fake news".

Showtime defended Cohen's antics in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter.

Roberts then revealed that Showtime refused a request from ABC to see footage of the interview proving that Cohen had pretended to be a former parcel worker and not a disable veteran.
