Sacha Baron Cohen's Insane 'Who Is America?' Website Is Full of Real Conspiracy Theories

Sacha Baron Cohen has had to do precious little to promote his latest project, a Trump-era inspired series called Who Is America? As his new character, Cohen tricked arch-conservative figures like Dick Cheney and Joe Arpaio into giving him earnest interviews.

Like Roy Moore, have drummed up word of mouth by publicly threatening to sue Cohen, which is an interesting move from a former judge.

The website Ruddick claims to represent, Truthbrary.com, is live and filled with Alex Jones-esque ramblings-the layout of the website is even reminiscent of World New Daily, the rightwing conspiracy site that was obsessed with Obama’s citizenship.

Here’s the disturbing thing though: these articles are all real.

While they seem bonkers enough to be satirical, Cohen has actually aggregated conspiracy theories that were already floating out in the Internet.

We’re not going to link to them here for obvious reasons, but feel free to use Google if you want to read “HILLARY CLINTON IS A SATANIST – ILLUMINATI DEFECTOR” or “16 MORE REASONS TO QUESTION 9/11,” which, again, is a real post on a real site somewhere on the real Internet.

Sacha Baron Cohen Continues to Troll Sarah Palin

On Tuesday, former Vice Presidential candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin said that comedian Sacha Baron Cohen tricked her into doing a fake interview for his mysterious upcoming Showtime show Who Is America?

Palin claims that she participated in what she thought was a legitimate Showtime documentary honoring American soldiers, but was actually a prank where Baron Cohen presented himself as a disabled veteran and subjected her to “Hollywoodism’s [sic] disrespect and sarcasm” before she walked out.

On Thursday, Baron Cohen responded – sort of – with a crass in-character statement telling his side of the story.

This response from “Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., PhD” that Baron Cohen retweeted gives us a better sense of what we’ll be seeing when the show premieres this Sunday.

Ruddick and Truthbrary.org may be partially inspired by right-wing news site the Drudge Report founder Matt Drudge, since in one of the brief character shots in the teaser Baron Cohen is wearing a straw hat of the kind favored by Drudge.

Ruddick seems to be one of several characters Baron Cohen will play on Who Is America?

Sarah Palin probably isn’t in on this, but she sure is giving Who Is America? a lot of free publicity.
