‘Israeli Pedophile Detector’: Sacha Baron Cohen Dupes Roy Moore in ‘Sex Offender’ Prank

Hoping for an easy interview on Alabama’s ‘strong connection’ with Israel, the Donald Trump-endorsed-but-failed Senate nominee Roy Moore was the latest dupee of comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, falling foul of a ‘pedophile detector.’

Former Alabama Chief Justice Moore was unwittingly filmed as part of Cohen’s new show, ‘Who is America?’ Moore’s 2017 bid for the Senate was hampered after a slew of sexual misconduct allegations were made against him, the youngest alleged victim being 14 at the time of the incident.

Moore, who has continued to be plagued by the allegations in the media, faced questions from his “Israeli interviewer” – none other than actor Sacha Baron Cohen, widely known for his characters ‘Borat’ and ‘Ali G.’

Posing as "terror expert” Colonel Erran Morad, Cohen asked Moore why there was such a “strong connection” between Alabama and Israel. The right-wing politician responded by lauding the state’s values of freedom and liberty.

“Alabama has always been a state that valued freedom, valued liberty, and appreciated what people went through to get it,” he said.

When Cohen commented with a hidden sarcasm that in Alabama, “people have always been free, whatever their religion, or race, or sexuality,” Moore stated: “It’s part of our heritage.”

But Moore’s hopes for an easy ride then took a somewhat uncomfortable turn when Cohen’s interview focused on Israel’s tradition in technological innovation.
