Who Is America Episode 5 Recap
Corey Lewandowski—known for allegedly pushing around female reporters and making fun of handicapped immigrant children separated from their parents—defended neo-Nazis on Sacha Baron Cohen’s Who Is America? on Sunday night. The sad thing is that this is neither the most shocking thing to happen on this show, nor a regular day of American politics.
Sitting down with Cohen’s Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr.—an Info Wars-esque conspiracy theorist—the two bonded President Donald Trump’s tendency to protect white nationalism.
“With Charlottesville, where people attacked our president, why should the president pick a side between anti-fascists and fascists?” Cohen’s character asks.
To which Lewandowski replies: “There is a place and a time to disagree with people—everywhere. You don’t have to agree with people. You have to respect them and you can’t be attacking them.”
Yes, please respect the white supremacists. That’s an actual statement from Donald Trump’s former campaign manager and current cable news talking head.
“You can’t be attacking honest, fascist people that just want to express their right to start a genocide,” Cohen’s Ruddick says. “That is their right!”
“Look, I don’t know about that,” said Lewandowski, “but what I do know is this: If the law says that people can do a peaceful protest, then they should be allowed to do that.”
As Donald Trump would say: There are good people on both sides. Unfortunately, Republicans are actively defending the people on the side of the Nazis rather than the other way around. What’s sad is that Who Is America? no longer feels like a comedy show—it’s the real world.
