Sacha Baron Cohen's humiliation of far-right figures in the US has been pretty enjoyable to watch, and while Cohen has so far not been publicly sued for any of his capers as of yet, some have threatened to do so and one of them just so happens to be Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Arpaio, for those who don't know, was pardoned personally by Donald Trump for criminal contempt of court, and has been accused of police misconduct including unlawful enforcement of deportation laws, misuse of funds, racial profiling, abuse of power and failure to investigate sexual assault cases against women.
In fact, an investigation by the US Department of Justice found that Arpaio oversaw the worst pattern of racial profiling in U.S. history, and subsequently filed suit against him for unlawful discriminatory police conduct.
Anyway, Arpaio was brought on with Cohen, who was pretending to be a Finnish toy blogger, and repeatedly asked Arpaio on camera if he'd take a blowjob from Donald Trump and asked him about golden showers.
Arpaio's response after the fact? "So he’s talking and I couldn’t understand him. He’s talking about golden showers. I thought he was talking about — the president has gold (in his shower)," said Arpaio in an interview with the Washington Examiner.
He went on, adding that he thought handjobs meant "illegals coming over working with their hands on their job." Ah-huh. Right. OK, and how about the blowjob question? "The only thing I got was that he would offer me a job. I didn’t hear that little thing before that," Arpaio believed.
Right. Let's watch the clip again because he pretty explicitly states blowjob. It's not like he whispered it. Granted, Arpaio's 86 and hearing can go, but he's standing that close to him and he can't hear blowjob? Come on.
