Watched the first two episodes last night. Tyler's right, it's nuts that there isn't bigger backlash at these elected officials who are on this show.

The GA House Representative is being asked to resign. However, his term ends in November, so he won't get elected anyway (he didn't even win the primary).

That's awesome. She'll end up getting her own reality art appraising show on TruTV or something.

It's just so weird that he sits there so smug the whole time, not caring because he actually believes the wand is real.

It's crazy to me that this show has yet to explain that it's a comedian doing various characters to real people. If my parents turned this on they wouldn't know it's a guy punking politicans.

You either have to know who Sasha is or next very confused by it and likely shut it off.

How are these people so stupid? They know they are being filmed. Sure, they are doing whatever they can to win over the person in the room, but they should realize how damaging this stuff could be outside of the room. The yacht salesmen is knowingly talking about human trafficing.

Jocelyn "literally can't even" during the yacht bit with what the girl was doing under the blanket. Couldn't watch.

I saw Nathan Fielder helped with this episode again

We have 2 episodes left. I think everyone here agrees the show started off hilarious but then it turned into only 1 sketch per episode was good.

Yeah it definitely wasn't as shocking as the first couple episodes, but I've still enjoyed it. I still need to watch the finale.

I think it would be pretty hard to do a 2nd season now that people know about it. If you're smart, you would always be wary about strange interviews and think "is this a joke/Sacha Baron Cohen?" But then again "if you're smart" doesn't apply to many of these people.

Don't be a pedophile and you won't get made fun of as a pedophile.

Sacha Baron Cohen's 'Who Is America?' Deleted Scene May Have Exposed Elite Pedophile Sex Ring
During the interview, believing the admission would drive the concierge from the room, Baron Cohen, as Gio, reveals that he’s molested an eight-year-old boy.

“This guy starts advising Gio how to get rid of this issue. We even at one point talk about murdering the boy, and the concierge is just saying, ‘well, listen, I’m really sorry. In this country, we can’t just drown the boy. This is America we don’t do that,’” Baron Cohen describes.

After the concierge offers to put Gio in touch with a lawyer who can help “silence the boy,” Baron Cohen asked for his help securing a date for the night.

“He says, ‘what do you mean, a date?’ I go, you know, like a young man. He says, ‘well, what kind of age?’ I say, lower than Bar Mitzvah but older than eight. And he says, ‘yeah, I can put you in touch with somebody who can get you some boys like that.’”

Rather than airing the segment, Baron Cohen and his production team turned the footage over to the FBI, “because we thought, perhaps there’s a pedophile ring in Las Vegas that’s operating for these very wealthy men. And this concierge had said that he’d worked for politicians and various billionaires.”

While Baron Cohen judged the interview too “dark” and “extreme” to be included in the show, it’s a revealing look at how the powerful can get away with decades-long sexual abuse, including pedophile sexual abuse, such as in the massive cover-up of the crimes of Jeffrey Epstein, orchestrated by President Trump’s Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta.

According to Baron Cohen, the FBI decided against pursuing the tip.
