"Out of respect for what I was led to believe would be a thoughtful discussion with someone who had served in uniform, I sat through a long 'interview' full of Hollywoodism’s disrespect and sarcasm — but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen’s chagrin," Palin elaborated. "The disrespect of our U.S. military and middle-class Americans via Cohen’s foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse."

"Donate all proceeds to a charitable group that actually respects and supports American Vets. Mock politicians and innocent public personalities all you want, if that lets you sleep at night, but HOW DARE YOU mock those who have fought and served our country," she wrote, adding, "Truly sick."

Palin also claimed that "the Cohen/CBS/Showtime production team purposefully dropped my daughter and me off at the wrong Washington, DC airport after the fake interview, knowing we’d miss all flights back home to Alaska." She added, "I wrote this off as yet another example of the sick nature that is media-slash-entertainment today."

Palin concluded her Facebook post by letting Cohen know that the daughter who accompanied her to the interview "thinks you’re a piece of ****," asserting that "every honorable American Vet should feel the same."

Mother of Chelsea target Golovin confirms talks ongoing

  Mother of Chelsea target Golovin confirms talks ongoing The mother of Chelsea target Aleksander Golovin has confirmed that talks are ongoing between her son and Chelsea. Speaking about her Son’s future, Golovin’s mother confirmed that the midfielder has been talking to Chelsea about a potential switch to England. The Russian has been a crucial part of his nation’s campaign on home soil in this year’s World Cup. The midfielder scored in his side’s opening game, and netted his penalty against Spain in the shootout. Golovin’s mother, Svetlana, said via Metro. Yes, now there are talks between the clubs, but we still do not know the details. Sacha right now stands only for the Russian team, fully focused on the World Cup. The transition from one club to another will only be discussed after it is completed here. For now, everyone loves my Sacha, even those who before didn’t care about football. His biggest fan is his 83-year-old grandmother – she does not miss a single match. This isn’t the first hint from the player’s family about his future, with the player’s father confirming that his son had begun learning English.

Palin's post comes just days after the July 15 premiere date for Who Is America? — described by Showtime as "the most dangerous show in the history of television" — was announced.

"Sacha is a comedic genius who shocks you with his audacity, bravery and inventiveness," Showtime Networks president and CEO David Nevins said of the Borat star. "He is the premier provocateur of our time, but not for the sake of ‘gotcha’ moments. Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics. Nobody knows how to cause a stir like Sacha Baron Cohen, and it’s going to be fascinating to watch what happens when Who Is America? is released on the world."

In a teaser for Cohen's satirical half-hour series, released via Instagram, the comic — presumably in character — can be heard asking former Vice President Dick Cheney to sign his "waterboard kit." Cheney is seen signing something and then jokes, "That's the first time I've ever signed a waterboard."
