This ‘legit opportunity’ to honor American Vets and contribute to a ‘legit Showtime historical documentary’ was requested of me by way of a audio system bureau.

For my interview, my daughter and I have been requested to journey throughout the nation the place Cohen (I presume) had closely disguised himself as a disabled US Veteran, pretend wheelchair and all.

The disrespect of our US army and middle-class People by way of Cohen’s overseas commentaries beneath the guise of interview questions was perverse.

Right here is my problem, shallow Sacha boy: go forward – air the footage. Expertise tells us will probably be closely edited, not fairly, and meant to humiliate.

The problem is to Cohen, CBS and Showtime: donate all proceeds to a charitable group that really respects and helps American Vets. Mock politicians and harmless public personalities all you need, if that allows you to sleep at night time, however HOW DARE YOU mock those that have fought and served our nation.

Really sick.

And as an apart, for additional perception into the rich company enablers of this type of ‘joke’, I’ll add that after nice prices on our half in time and assets to contribute to their “documentary” the Cohen/CBS/Showtime manufacturing group purposefully dropped my daughter and me off on the incorrect Washington, DC airport after the pretend interview, understanding we’d miss all flights again house to Alaska. After refusing to take our calls to assist get us out of the bind they’d put us in for 3 days, I wrote this off as yet one more instance of the sick nature that’s media-slash-entertainment right now.

Really feel good and manly about your M.O., Sacha?

By the best way, my daughter thinks you’re a bit of ****, Sacha. Each honorable American Vet ought to really feel the identical.
