Sacha Baron Cohen’s back to his shenanigans, and we’re here for it.
On Saturday, the satirist infiltrated a conservative rally in Olympia, WA, disguised as a racist country singer. Backed by a band, Baron Cohen got the “March for Our Rights 3” crowd to participate in a call and response song containing offensive lyrics about President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Dr. Anthony Fauci.

According to social media posts, the Who Is America host posed as the leader of a political action committee who wanted to sponsor the rally, which was put together by the Washington Three Percenters — a right-wing militia organization. Baron Cohen brought his own security team, who protected him as organizers scrambled to get him offstage and turn off his microphone when he began singing about the “Wuhan flu.”

Though organizers were not pleased with the subject matter, attendees seemed to enjoy it and had no problem shouting “Chop ‘em up like the Saudis do!” when prompted.
“Obama, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu. Hillary Clinton, what we gonna do? Lock her up like we used to do. Fauci don’t know his head from his ass. He must be smoking grass. I ain’t lying, it ain’t no jokes. Corona is a liberal hoax. Dr. Fauci, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu. WHO, what we gonna do? Chop ’em up like the Saudis do,” Baron Cohen sang.
