The comedian easily convinces a middle-aged Trump supporter to dress up as the 15-year-old girl, and pranks former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore with a pedophile detector wand.
The most successful character thus far on this provocative new series is Cohen's militant alt-right Isreali extremist General Erran Morrad. And this week, the good general opened up a training session to capture and deport illegal Mexican immigrants by luring them in with all those things they can't resist: free food, free drugs and underage girls?
The three Trump supporters he corralled for this mission explained to him that people like to go to Mexican quinceanera celebrations to rape the young girls in attendance. This was stated like it is simply a known fact that Mexicans are rapists and pedophiles. It would be unbelievable if it hadn't just happened on camera.
But Cohen's genius in luring people into the absurd was then put to the ultimate test as he actually convinced one of the men to don a pair of "pussy panties," mimicking the feeling of a vagina, and dress up as a 15-year-old girl to help lure in the Mexicans. A second man dressed as the pinata to film the whole thing.
Seriously, these guys went for it and fully committed to this absolutely ridiculous sting operation. The quinceanera "girl" was decked out in a pink dress and obnoxious wig, while Cohen was a mariachi band member and the other guy was in a giant pinata. It was so ridiculous and completely over the top, that the guys duped might have been the only ones who thought nothing was amiss.
Someone else found it suspicious enough to call the police. "We have reports you're trying to lure underage girls here," one of the officers said, as Cohen played dumb. We can only imagine what was going through those officers' heads as this was easily the shadiest operation we'd ever seen, capped with the reveal of the "pussy panties" on the fake quinceanera girl.
We can't believe this didn't work!
Roy Moore has been on the defensive since the show got on the public's radar just a week or so before the premiere, and now we know why: He failed a faux pedophile test.
Cohen interviewed the former Alabama Senate candidate as Gen. Morrad and presented the latest in Israeli anti-terrorism technology -- a wand that the character claimed would detect sex offenders and alert the authorities.
For those who weren't paying attention to last year's special election in Alabama to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the Senate, Moore lost to Democrat Doug Jones after multiple women accused Moore of sexual misconduct, which included allegations of having romantic relationships with underage girls while he was in his 30s.
"It turns out, sex offender and particularly pedophiles secrete an enzyme 4DDHD, which is actually detectable. it is three times the level of non perverts, so the phrase, ‘sweating like a rapist,’ is actually based on science,” Cohen’s character told the controversial politician. "So in Israel they have developed a machine that is used in schools and playgrounds to detect anyone coming in, and if they detect a pedophile, the wand alerts the law enforcement and schools within a 100-mile radius."
“It is very, very simple to use," Cohen continued. "You just switch it on and beacuse none of us are sex offenders and it will make absolutely nothing you just put it on, you put it nearby —“

Cohen also went back undercover as self-hating white cisgender male liberal Dr. Nira Cain-N'Degeocello, who competes in a battle rap competition while trying his hardest not to offend, even citing "gangster rap" in air quotes. When his competition busts out a rhyme about having sex with his wife, Dr. Nira Cain-N'Degeocello responds in the most accepting way possible:
"I appreciate your comments. Firstly, I do not have a wife, she is a partner, who is an equal partner in me. If there was consensual lovemaking between you and her, I would approve of it, and has happened in the past, I would wait outside the yurt and I would listen to a podcast with noise canceling headphones."
The audience is at a loss for words throughout most of it, but erupt in excitement when Cohen's character finally manages to clap back: "You talk in bragging terms in the size of your phallus. I believe the inverse is true, I myself am ashamed that I have a larger phallus than you."
"Who Is America?" airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime.
