  • On Sunday’s episode of “Who Is America?,” Sacha Baron
    Cohen made the former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore
    participate in a “pedophile detector” test.
  • Cohen, disguised as his recurring character of an
    Israeli “anti-terror expert,” interviewed Moore and concluded
    the segment by pulling out a metal detector wand that he said
    the Israeli military had been using to detect
    pedophiles.
  • Cohen tested the wand repeatedly on himself, Moore, and
    another man in the room, saying that it must be
    “malfunctioning” for beeping only when it was waved over
    Moore.
  • Moore lost a Senate race last year after eight women
    accused him of sexual misconduct, including six women who were
    underage when the misconduct allegedly occurred.

On Sunday’s episode of Sacha Baron Cohen’s Showtime series, “Who
Is America?,” Cohen duped the former Alabama Senate candidate Roy
Moore into participating in a “pedophile detector” test.

Cohen, disguised as his recurring character of an Israeli
“anti-terror expert,” Col. Erran Morad, interviewed Moore and
concluded the segment by pulling out a metal detector wand that
he said the Israeli military has been using to detect pedophiles.

Moore lost in a run-off election to Doug Jones for an Alabama
senate seat in December after
eight women accused him of sexual misconduct
. All but two of
the women were underage when the misconduct allegedly occurred.
His youngest accuser was 14 years old.

“If they detect a pedophile the wand alerts the law enforcement
and the schools within a 100-mile radius,” Cohen said, taking out
a metal detector wand. “It’s very, very simple to use. You just
switch it on and because neither of us is a sex offender then it
makes absolutely nothing.”

In the segment, Cohen tested the wand repeatedly on himself,
Moore, and another man in the room, saying that it must be
“malfunctioning” for beeping only when it was waved over Moore.

“I’ve been married for 33 years and never had an accusation of
such things,” Moore said. “If this is an instrument, I’m
certainly not a pedophile, okay? Maybe Israeli technology hasn’t
developed properly.”

Moore preceded the show’s premiere with a statement earlier this
month, in which he threatened to sue Showtime and Cohen for
tricking him and other Republican politicians into a segment that
would “embarrass, humiliate and mock not only Israel” but
conservatives like himself.
