Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen asked present and past Republican lawmakers if children, including pre-schoolers, should be armed to defend schools against shooters on his new Showtime series “Who Is America?” (more video below).
Cohen proposed his “Kinderguardians” idea, which included a fake video with children’s songs and “gunimals,” which are weapons adorned with stuffed toys.
Republican Rep.Dana Rohrabacher of California, Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina, former Senate Republican leader Trent Lott (now a lobbyist) and former congressman-turned-talk radio host, Joe Walsh endorsed the bizarre idea (video below).
In another clip. Cohen pranked Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont by pretending to be Dr. Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., PhD, who claimed he got sick because of Obamacare:
Obamacare came in and I was forced to see a doctor.And suddenly I had three diseases. I had diabetes one and two, I had obese legs and I had chalky deposits.
