Dressed in a cowboy hat and overalls, Cohen sang racist lyrics attacking President Obama, Hillary Clinton and Anthony Fauci, as well as CNN and the World Health Organization.

English actor and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen recently managed to pull off a peculiar stunt as he infiltrated a right-wing gathering in Olympia, Washington and delivered an "incognito performance" there while disguised as a band singer, Jewish News reports.

The chorus from the song included: "Obama what we gonna do, Inject him with the Wuhan flu".

The notorious prankster, responsible for Borat and Ali G, left members of paramilitary group Three Percenters red faced-after sneaking into one of their Washington events in costume. "Hillary Clinton what we gonna do/Lock her up like we used to do/W H O what we gonna do/Chop them up like the Saudis do". His appearance made the news because he was able to get on stage and perform a racist song that mocks the sentiments of the group. "W H O what we gonna do, Chop them up like the Saudis do".

Sacha came as the honcho of a political action committee, or so he said. according to the Daily Beast.

It is unclear whether that would mean just the place where an outbreak occurred, like a factory, or an entire geographical area. Ivan Browne, the city's director of public health, said he had received more detailed data on local cases.

And apparently, the crowd did get wise to the act, but not before they were soundly humiliated with the widely-recorded singalong and a separate instance where Baron Cohen snuck in under a different disguise.

In the aftermath of the event, one of the organisers spoke about Cohen's involvement. Inject him with the Wuhan flu. He also said, "His security blocked event organizers from getting him off the stage, or pulling power from the generator".

It's been two years since Sacha Baron Cohen's Showtime series Who Is America convinced Sarah Palin, radio host Joe Walsh, and other right wing personalities to do interviews with some of Cohen's characters.

TMZ reported that at some point the crowd turned on Baron Cohen, who was whisked into a waiting ambulance by his security and driven away.
