The comedian drew ire from the former Alaska governor by posing as a military veteran to draw Palin into an ambush interview for his new show, "Who is America?".

Cohen responded to Palin's outrage and challenge in a sarcastic tweet Thursday that was made in the character of the interviewer.

He goes on: "I don't need Sacha Cohen to tell me who America is", adding, "As an American, I would never hide my identity and deceive others only to mock and ridicule them as this Showtime series is created to do".

Sarah Palin was one of Cohen's victims, as she herself revealed earlier this week.

"I am Dr. Billy Wayne Ruddick, founder/ceo/accountant of Truthbrary.org and it was I that interviewed you", he wrote, addressing Palin.

"But ma'am, I do believe you have been hit by a bullshit grenade and are now bleedin' FAKE NEWS", Sacha wrote referencing the 2013 SNL skit in which Tina Fey joked that Sarah said "I can see Russian Federation from my house", the uproar over whether or not President Obama was a USA citizen, and of course Donald Trump's idea that the media spews lies.

His body was later shifted to Bilour House where ANP workers gathered in great numbers to pay respect to their deceased leader. Responding to a question about the deadly attack on the party leader, "These are terrorists we are dealing with".

She is challenging Baron Cohen and Showtime to donate proceeds from the show to a veterans' charity.

Who Is America? premieres July 15 on Showtime at 10 PM EDT/PDT.

Palin says she sat through what she called a long interview full of "Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm" before she walked out.

Showtime had no comment on Wednesday on the accounts by Palin and Walsh and has declined to give details of the series, or who will be appearing. "I did not know Sacha Cohen or that a Showtime TV series was being planned to embarrass, humiliate, and mock not only Israel, but also religious conservatives", Moore said in a statement. Walsh also shared a picture of the award he was given. Much like Sarah Palin being asked freaky questions by any stranger she encounters in a wheelchair, we are prepared to accept all of this at face value.

"It was I that interviewed you", Ruddick's note reads.
