That's some funny stuff. I hope the constituencies of those Congressmen get to see this, realize how very stupid their representatives are and elect them out of Congress.

Some funny stuff these guys said.

"Introduce specialty selected children from 12 to 4 years old to pistols, rifles, semi-automatics and a rudimentary understanding of mortars"

"A first grader can become a first grenader"

"Its something we should think about in America, putting guns in the hands of.....
whether they be teachers, or whether they actually be talented children or highly trained preschoolers"

"A 3 year old can't protect itself from an assault rifle by throwing a Hello Kitty pencil case at it"

"Toddlers are pure, uneffected by fake news and homosexuality"

"Children under 5 years old have elevated levels of the pheromone Blink 182 produced by the part of the liver called the Rita Ora. This allows nerve reflexes to travel along the Cardi B pathway to the Wiz Kalifa"

Boy I hope these guys knew it was a prank and went along with it otherwise this goes from being hilarious to being extremely sad.

I doubt they knew it's a prank.

A politician should be smart enough to know that they can't look like idiots in public.

The tactic is somewhat nefarious but these people believed what they said.

Good Lord, what has the republican party become.

Its not the whole Republican party. Cohen did his research. He knew which far right guys might be not too bright and be suseptible to being duped. I wouldn't paint the whole party as being as dumb or as radically right as these guys.

I think a bunch, not all, not a majority, but a bunch of Republicans in Congress probably would support teachers with proper training being armed in school. But it takes a special type of far right wing idiot to believe it would be a good idea to arm the kids, especially preschoolers. Cohen did good research and found some. Like I said, I don't think its the whole party.

Inaction is an act.  The republican party as an entity has been complicit with enabling this element.  No, not every member of the republican party would be this dumb or would share this view but far too many of them are unwilling to stand up and put a stop to this being part of the infrastructure of the party.  These guys displayed absolute idiocy.  And they won a republican primary and then were elected in a general election (as was Trump).

The party is carrying water for these far extreme gun advocates because they don't want to lose this easy source of votes.  You can't win a primary without the loony ultra-right vote.  So they pander and/or remain silent.  Trent Lott for example was a main stream party establishment leader.  How far is he from the center of the republican party?

LOL...that's hilarious!

You would have to think they were all in on the joke, but maybe not.  I'm actually really curious to know.

That's honestly the first time that Sacha Baron Cohen has ever made me laugh, so TP for sharing, lol ;D.

He is funny and dupes a lot of people.  If he caught the people saying that stuff they should be exposed.

Man, he was just warming up last week. The first and last scenes were downright depressing this week.

The show is simultaneously sad, cringeworthy, and hilarious.
