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.

Needless to say, it was a somewhat unwelcome surprise to organisers when Cohen - dressed in a red skivvy and blue overalls, fake beard, and a big hat - proceeded to play a song that referenced a number of far-right and racist conspiracies, from the coronavirus being a hoax, to it being created in a lab in Wuhan, to threatening to "inject [Obama] with the Wuhan flu".

After organisers cottoned on to the stunt, they attempted to take him off stage and unplug the power, but Cohen was one step ahead with a team of security guarding the generator.
