Sacha Baron Cohen Just Trolled Donald Trump on Twitter as Ali G and People Can't Even

As President Donald Trump's legal problems got worse and worse this week, his critics are reacting with glee. Among these is comedic actor Sacha Baron Cohen, famous for his outrageous characters and their interviews of unsuspecting targets.

Today, Cohen took to Twitter, taunting the president and reviving a famous character of his: Ali G.


The content mockingly commends Trump for everything from his business acumen to his endowment, reading:

2 my main man President Ronald Trump, check out when you colluded wiv me a few years ago and u corrected all dem stupid fake news scientists who said dat humanoids have only been around for 300,000 years.
Yesterday it was proven in de courts dat u iz a crook - respeck! U iz a genuine gangsta! And it turns out most of your crew are too innit (4 guilty so far). U iz de Suge Knight of world leaders innit.
Also nuff respeck for bonin all dem pornstars - but why iz u payin dem money to keep quiet about it? We know it aint coz u haz got a tiny dong, u told everyone it woz massive on da telly, and one fing u ain't, is a liar. Anyway, peace out, u iz a hinspiration for young people, showing dem u can become President of America without having to give up a life of crime. Bigupyaself O.G.

Twitter was quick to applaud him for adding insult to Trump's injury.

They were also skeptical of Trump's claim that humans have been around for hundreds of millions of years.

And remembered other times when he'd trolled Trump.

Cohen—the comedian, not the lawyer this time—recently created a stir in Washington, especially on the right, with Cohen's latest series on Showtime, Who is America?. Disguising himself as various characters, Who is America? documents the incognito Cohen interviewing various politicians and activists—often leading to their humiliation and, in at least one case, a resignation.

The series has stoked a lot of anger from Republicans...

...and those who identify themselves as Conservative Christian Trump supporters on Twitter.

Cohen particularly struck the ire of former Vice Presidential candidate and Trump supporter Sarah Palin, who accused the actor of duping her.

Palin decried Cohen for disrespecting United States veterans and for mistreating her on set during the fake interview, calling his humor "evil, exploitative, and sick" in a Facebook post.

Palin accused Cohen of mocking disabled veterans with his portrayal of Dr. Billy Wayne Ruddick, but Cohen--never one to shy away from controversy or criticism--doubled down, responding in character on Twitter:

The ridiculousness of Cohen's antics coupled with the insanity of this time in America have made Who is America well received by much of the public.

The video of Ali G. and Donald Trump is a throwback, but it's hard not to hope that it foreshadows a video in the future. One can only imagine what would occur if Cohen managed to trick Trump again.

After three years in office, President Donald Trump's average approval rating has never risen above 50 percent.

While he enjoys a high approval rating among the Republican party, a new hashtag trending on Twitter is highlighting those who were so repulsed by him that they left the party all together.

The hashtag #ILeftTheGOP, apparently started by former Conservative writer Cheri Jacobus, shot to one of the top trends on Twitter.

Just one day after President Donald Trump's lawyers insisted during his Senate impeachment trial that the President did nothing wrong, reporting from the New York Times made the job of defending Trump even more difficult.

The Times reported on the upcoming memoir from Trump's former National Security Advisor John Bolton, which asserts that President Trump sought to withhold $391 million in congressionally approved aid from Ukraine until its President announced an investigation into his potential 2020 rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

If true, Bolton's assertion would confirm previous second-hand testimony regarding the existence of a quid pro quo in Trump's dealings with Ukraine.

In December, President Donald Trump established the United States Space Force, a sixth branch of the United States Army.

The goal of the force is to protect United States assets in outer space from foreign rivals and is slated to cost around $2 billion in the next five years.

Today, Trump unveiled the official logo for the Space Force, but people think it bears a striking resemblance to another iconic symbol.

People were stunned this past July when President Donald Trump tweeted that four Congresswomen of color—Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)—should "go back" to where they came from.

He also falsely claimed they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe..."

Three of the Congresswomen were born in the United States. Omar was a refugee from Somalia. All are Americans.

At a campaign rally days later in North Carolina, President Donald Trump mentioned Congresswoman Omar—and got a strong reaction from the crowd.

While bigotry is common at a Trump rally, it became even more blatant when Trump's supporters began chanting "Send her back," echoing the calls from Trump's tweet for them to "go back" to where they came from.

As Democratic House impeachment managers make their case against President Donald Trump, one of his favorite news networks is going to lengths to keep the bevy of evidence against him from reaching their viewers' ears.

At first, Fox News tried scrolling Trump's so-called accomplishments alongside live video of the historic proceedings. Now, the network's latest attempt to distract from the Democrats' arguments is raising eyebrows even higher.

Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman was one of the first witnesses in the House of Representatives' initial impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Vindman testified before the House's select committee on impeachment late last year after hearing Trump's infamous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
