When Sacha Baron Cohen met Roy Moore, he brought a ‘paedophile detector’

The ideal time to whip out the "pedophile detector".

The third episode of Sacha Baron Cohen's headline-making comedy documentary series Who Is America? aired last night, and right on schedule, we have the clip that will easily be the most talked about from the latest installment of the Showtime series.

It's clear Moore had no idea, at least initially, that it was Cohen with whom he was sitting down with to discuss technological advancements to thwart terrorist attacks, saying he was "honored" to meet Cohen who posed as Israeli anti-terrorism expert Col. Erran Morad. During the encounter, the disguised comedian boasted about a new Israeli technology that can detect sexual predators.

And if he were to win against Fury, as we fully expect, then Deontay would be an global superstar in control of the boxing world. Fury said: 'Deontay Wilder, what's he going to do? Negotiations are very strong for December, we're nearly done for this deal.


During the interview, Cohen explains that Israel has created a new technology that can detect sex offenders and "especially pedophiles". "You just switch it on, and because neither of us are sex offenders, then it makes absolutely nothing". "So the phrase 'sweating like a rapist, ' is actually verified by science", Morad explained. Multiple agonizing minutes pass as Cohen pulls out a security wand, waving it against himself before turning it on Moore and triggering a loud beeping.

Moore, who was endorsed by Donald Trump, lost the December special election to fill an Alabama Senate seat to Democrat Doug Jones amid accusations of sexual misconduct by several women. Cohen asks him. "Did you lend the jacket to somebody else?"

"I've been married for 33", says Moore. That time when he chanted before a meal with the conservative couple from SC, then told them about how his children, named Harvey Milk and Malala, go to the bathroom politically correctly, then told them about how his wife has affairs with dolphins - I was blind with tears of laughter.
