JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

In Sunday night’s episode of “Who Is America?” comedian Sacha Baron Cohen suckered another Donald Trump associate. This time, he got former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski to voice his sympathetic stance on neo-Nazis, according to a Sunday Daily Beast report.

Disguised as an Alex Jones-type character named Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., Cohen prompted Lewandowski to pontificate on the anniversary of the Charlottesville rally.

“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,” Lewandowski said of the white supremacists. “If the law says that people can do a peaceful protest, then they should be allowed to do that.”
