This is seriously good. Cohen at his absolute best. Equally hilarious and terrifying.

The Kinder-Gaurdians stuff was particularly awful.

Highly alarming.

Last night's 'how to take on ISIS' was an eye-opener.

Calls for GOP's Jason Spencer to resign after this one.

He is, of course, refusing and claiming that such liberal manipulations are the reason Trump is president.

Here it is ... if you can believe it:

Indeed.

And then told him it was now "very valuable".

I can't believe what happens on that show.

It's amazing, isn't it. I know he pushes it for a living but he's gone above and beyond this time ... and there's only been two episodes.

Sarah Palin is still whining about being hoodwinked. I'm looking forward to that interview particularly but Cheney was a great surprise.

The young blonde bimbo was amazing too.

No idea who she is, but she just did anything he asked of her.

Told outright lies, without flinching.

And then the "adopt a child soldier" bit - oh dear.

That was just crazy. Said she was from the Bachelor? I dunno, i've never watched that crap. But what a fame whore. A stunning example of so much that is wrong with society.

She didn't seem to be a complete moron which was frightening ... just utterly devoid of any morals or ethics. As in, none whatsoever. Frightening.

The Bachelor?

Ah, okay - that explains it.

Yes, these air heads are a worry.

All they want is fame, and they'll do literally anything to get it.

I imagine she's one of these girls who takes a hundred selfies a day, with that stupid pouted lips pose.

She'd be checking into Facebook every fifteen minutes: "Just had toast for breakfast, off to do some clothes shopping now".

These people really worry me.

Oh well, at least she does good work for charities:

Oh you mean "duck-face". Yeah, that's just bizarre. Absolute narcissism. And reality telly feeds right into it.

It has to be, to quote Booby, a sign of the end of times.

People, meanwhile, validate her and hang shit on brown people and folks who want to express their sexuality in different ways.

Way to fight the real fight, society.

“I feel like, because I was so kind back and so positive back, you know, it really helped with the whole massacre situation.”

I was speechless.

Check this out:

"In an interview you did before the episode aired, you ultimately equated this experience with being kidnapped and thought you were “going to die.” Did you genuinely feel like your life was threatened?"

"I definitely felt … I was scared. I didn’t have my phone, they did. They weren’t giving me my phone, they weren’t letting me outside. I started to panic a little bit. I didn’t know exactly what I thought was going to happen, but I was definitely panicking."

These kids today just can't survive without their phones.

It's frightening stuff.

That's the beauty of Cohen's work. He just winds them up, points them in the direction and they undo themselves. Totally and irredeemably.

He really is very, very clever.

But damn it's scary.

I saw some in their natural habitat only recently; the city on a Saturday night ... and not the good bits.

It was fucking freezing and i lost count of how many women i saw walking around sleeveless and bare-legged, supporting themselves on strappy spikes, walking on tip-toes by 10pm, clearly in agony. And age is no barrier ... or anything else for that matter. They just looked ridiculous. I've never understood it. And the kinds of men they attract are just revolting.

Never understood why a woman would consider a man who would prefer she was freezing and in pain. I've never liked boys like that.
