Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a vile man. During his tenure, he unfairly targeted undocumented immigrants, and humiliated and dehumanized inmates. While Arpaio received a pardon from President Donald Trump (after he racially profiled Latinos and immigrants), he couldn’t escape Sacha Baron Cohen’s masterful trolling. On his new Showtime show, Who Is America?, Cohen is on a mission to expose the worst in high-profile people – sometimes going low to get his point across. For the latest episode, Cohen disguised himself as Finnish YouTuber OMGWhizzBoy and had Arpaio talk about blowjobs as he unboxed a Shopkins set.
Cohen (in character) starts off by asking Arpaio, who wears a gun pin on his tie, to tell him “what communists are trying to do to stop people having guns.” Arpaio goes on to explain how taking away guns goes directly against the constitution and uses faulty logic to defend weapons. But what everyone’s really talking about is what Arpaio said about Trump. After Arpaio sings 45’s praises and says that Trump doesn’t act like a rich guy (lol wut?), WhizzBoy asks, “Do you think he might have had a golden shower?” “Wouldn’t surprise me,” Arpaio responds.
With Arpaio clearly taking golden shower as a literal term, Cohen pushes forward. “My first job was a hand job from my mother, and it was newspapers,” WhizzBoy says. “What was your first hand job?” Arpaio replies, “Well, let me say this: Whatever I did in my life, I always do it extra. It gets me in trouble sometimes.”
“You wanted to give the best hand job possible,” Cohen says. “Extra, sometimes,” Arpaio adds. And that’s when Cohen goes in for the kill, “So if Donald Trump calls you up after this and says, ‘Sheriff Joe, I want to offer you an amazing blowjob,’ would you say ye?” “I may have to say yes,” Arpaio says.
With the show now available to watch online, Arpaio has spoken out about the blowjob comments. “I didn’t even know what he was talking about,” he said. “I couldn’t even hear what the hell he was saying… He had a bad accent. He was twisting things around.”
