Watch Sacha Baron Cohen trick Roy Moore into participating in a 'pedophile detector' test

  • 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.
