Who is America? is available for Canadians on CraveTV, with a new release every Sunday at 10:00.

The first episode of Who Is America? airs on Channel 4 at 10pm on Monday July 16. Not because there is anything necessary graphic in its content, but rather because the views that end up coming out on how people in the U.S. view guns and violence and support kids using them is absolutely shocking.

Finally, Morad tries to get support from politicians in Washington DC. "If it had been, I would have rejected it", he said. In less than a month - less than a month - a first-grader can become a first-grenade-er.

Mr Rohrabacher said he only spoke broadly in the video about training young people of responsible age in self-defence, and called the segment a "sick fraud" intentionally created to be deceptive for political reasons.

"At no time did I endorse training toddlers in handling guns".

In an unusual statement from the network, Showtime pushed back on claims that one of the comedian's latest characters is a disabled veteran. Nor was the idea even presented to me directly. Neither Wilson nor Lott replied to requests for comment. Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr, is an opponent of "mainstream" media who debates healthcare with left-leaning Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. And it's not focused on Trump specifically, but rather America as a whole.

Sacha Baron Cohen has duped and angered a handful of notable politicians, like Sarah Palin and Joe Walsh, for his new Showtime series "Who Is America?" that premiered on Sunday.

She says she sat through "disrespect and sarcasm" before walking out, calling Cohen's humour "evil, exploitive, sick". "I was in the service - not military, but United Parcel, and I only fought for my country once - when I shot a Mexican who came onto my property".

Baron Cohen went undercover using prosthetics and make-up as different characters while interviewing a series of American political figures such as Sarah Palin, Bernie Sanders and Dick Cheney.
