Sacha Baron Cohen bolts, leaves crew behind after being smoked out by gun store owner (video)

As Twitchy reported, you won’t be seeing either NRATV’s Cameron Gray or NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch on Sacha Baron Cohen’s Showtime series, “Who Is America?” Both received an email from “Yerushalayim Television” back in February, but Loesch said it looked sketchy and she just ignored it.

However, Cohen did manage to get former Vice President Dick Cheney to sign a “waterboard kit” (an empty gallon milk carton), so there’s that.

You also won’t be seeing Cohen trying to buy a gun from a Riverside, Calif., gun shop, although there is video of Cohen turning around and leaving his crew behind after the owner of the gun shop recognized him as “Borat.”

Bill Melugi reports for FOX 11 in Los Angeles:

It happened at Warrior One Guns & Ammo in February 2017. That’s when owner Norris Sweidan told FOX 11 Cohen and a camera met him while claiming to be filming a documentary about a Hungarian immigrant wanting to buy a gun.

“He comes in, off the bat you can see in the video I’m looking like, this guy does not look like a Hungarian immigrant, tight ass leather pants, a beard, it just didn’t fit,” Sweidan said. “The moment his words came out of his mouth I was like this guy is full of s***.”

Sweidan told FOX 11 Cohen said he wanted to buy a gun, but said it with a very odd sounding accent he didn’t find credible.

“I’m looking at the producer and I’m just like am I being fooled right here?” Sweidan said. “And I just kept looking at the guy and I was like you’re Borat, as soon as I said that his eyes just looked at me like, and he did a turn right out the door.”

“Once I knew it was Borat, we already know his game and his bull*****, so we knew he’s here to make a mockery, and of what? Gun owners? The gun business, gun shops,” Sweidan said.

Deadline Hollywood reported earlier this week that Cohen’s “Who Is America?” debuted to an audience of just 327,000 people, making it the 70th highest-rated original show on cable on July 15.
