If you were to play TV roulette, there’s probably a good chance that whatever channel you landed on would be nothing but people talking trash about President Trump.
There are so many anti-Trump shows, it’s almost impossible to avoid them. And somehow, these shows do pretty well in the ratings, otherwise they wouldn’t be on any longer.
Which should give you an idea of how many outraged liberals look forward to anything that disparages our President.
But one of those “highly anticipated” anti-Trump shows just premiered to catastrophically horrendous ratings.
Sacha Baron Cohen is back with his newest series called ‘Who is America?’ on Showtime. The actor known for Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, D Ali G Show and Bruno is up to his old gimmicks by tricking people into ridiculous situations.
You may have heard through word of mouth, or read about the hype on the internet since the marketing department at Showtime shoved it down our faces over and over.
Showtime was probably pretty confident that the premiere would be huge, but it actually only attracted a meager 327,000 viewers, taking 70th place for the day.
Cohen was destroyed in the 10pm slot by a show called “Mexico Life” with 1.9 million viewers and a Discovery show called “On the Case with Paula Zahn” which raked in a whopping 1.5 million watchers.
Cohen even lost to fake news CNN, which actually had double the amount of viewers that Who is America? had.
And that could be because of the mockery he made of working class America.
His sketch of “interviews” with various conservatives was an insult to all reasonable gun owners. Cohen played a character named Erran Morad, who is an anti-terror expert and gun rights advocate.
He fooled many politicians into teaching children as young as kindergarteners to learn how to use a gun.
Another clip also shows Cohen having former Vice President Dick Cheney autographing a waterboard, which he seemed to happy to oblige.
Sarah Palin was outraged by the promotions for the show and instantly went public with the fact that Cohen – playing a war veteran constricted to a wheelchair – tricked her into an interview.
Showtime tried to call Palin out by issuing a statement that the character he played was not a “war veteran,” and said that her claims were part of a “widespread misinformation over the past week.”
But Palin fired back again by calling it “more BS.” There are even posters all over LA with Cohen’s character wearing an “ARMY” t-shirt.
Suck it up cupcake.
Showtime's latest statement is more BS. They continue to deceive as they have from day 1. They continue to defend (and pay) a man… https://t.co/3mxDEGDQ5X

It’s likely that everyone is tired of his antics that made him so famous in 2006.
Cohen hasn’t had a success in over a decade, so it’s no surprise that he’s up to his old embarrassing nonsense.
But it doesn’t even matter because the show probably won’t last much longer anyway.
