He says he did not know Cohen would mock Israel and scheme to humiliate him and different conservatives comparable to Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney.
“I didn’t know Sacha Cohen or Showtime TV collection was once being deliberate to embarrass, humiliate, and ridicule no longer simplest Israel, but additionally spiritual conservatives comparable to Sarah Palin, Joe Walsh, and Dick Cheney,” Moore wrote on Fb.
“I’m concerned about a number of courtroom circumstances at this time to protect my honor and personality towards vicious false political assaults by means of liberals like Cohen,” Moore added. “If Showtime airs a defamatory assault on my personality, I could possibly be concerned about some other. As for Mr. Cohen, whose artwork is trickery, deception, and dishonesty, Alabama does no longer admire cowards who showcase such characteristics!”
“Who Is The us?” premieres Sunday on Showtime.
Neither Showtime nor Cohen answered to requests for remark.
