Sacha Baron Cohen has pulled off his latest prank.
Variety can confirm the comedian and star of the political satire show “Who Is America?” infiltrated a conservative rally in Washington on Saturday, making his way on stage and getting some people in the crowd to sing racist lyrics about President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the “Wuhan flu.”
The rally, titled “March for Our Rights 3,” was organized by the Washington Three Percenters, a right-wing militia organization, on Saturday. According to social media posts from the event’s organizers, Baron Cohen disguised himself as the leader of a political action committee who wanted to sponsor the rally. He brought his own security team who prevented organizers from kicking him off stage once he began singing and turning off the power to his microphone.
Holy shit 😂

Once on stage and in disguise, Baron Cohen performed a song with a band and had members of the crowd repeat words back to him. The lyrics mentioned injecting Obama, Clinton and Fauci with the “Wuhan flu” and chopping up members of the World Health Organization “like the Saudis do.”
“Obama, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu. Hillary Clinton, what we gonna do? Lock her up like we used to do. Fauci don’t know his head from his ass. He must be smoking grass. I ain’t lying, it ain’t no jokes. Corona is a liberal hoax. Dr. Fauci, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu. WHO, what we gonna do? Chop ’em up like the Saudis do,” Baron Cohen sang.

Baron Cohen has made a career out of pranking unwitting victims into doing and saying embarrassing things on camera. In the first season of “Who Is America?” he pranked Bernie Sanders, Dick Cheney, Jill Stein, Roy Moore and O.J. Simpson.
