Sacha Baron Cohen trolled a group of conservatives Saturday, leaving them fuming for being played.

"On Saturday, comedian Sacha Baron Cohen apparently infiltrated the "March for Our Rights 3" rally in downtown Olympia, Washington, getting at least some of the right-wing militia attendees to sing racist lyrics along with him about Barack Obama, Dr. Fauci, and the 'Wuhan flu,'" reported the Daily Beast. "Footage shows him convincing festival-goers to sing along to lyrics about infecting well-known US figures including former president Barack Obama, American immunologist Doctor Anthony Fauci and Microsoft boss Bill Gates with coronavirus," the website adds.

Cohen also targeted the World Health Organization and called people who wear face masks and "liberals."

"At one point he even convinced festival-goers to sing about journalists and how they should 'chop them up like the Saudis do' - a reference to the death of Jamal Khashoggi who was assassinated at the Saudi consulate in Turkey in 2018,"reported the Daily Mail.

Cohen has yet to claim responsibility for the stunt, but those behind the a "March for Our Rights 3" rally say the comedian was behind it.

"WHO what you going to do?" the "Borat" actor is seen asking the crowd.

And they respond: "Chop them up like the Saudis do."

"USA we don't need no COVID test/You are not going to take away my rights," he sings at one point.

"Chinese people what we going to do?" he asks. "Nuke 'em up like in World War 2," he responds and the audience sings along. When he asks, "Liberals what are we going to do?" The crowd responds, "Infect them with the Wuhan flu."

"Local councillor James Connor Blair, posting on his personal page, said the comedian's security blocked event organizers from removing him from the stage or pulling power from the stage's generator," reports the Daily Mail. "Organizers '3% cent of Washington' said in a statement on Facebook that they were 'appalled by the performance' and that 'racism is never allowed within our group.'"

They also claim that the participants were appalled by what Cohen was saying, but the video shows otherwise as they sing-along with such lines as: "WHO what we gotta do? Inject them with the Wuhan Flu" and "WHO what we gotta do? Chop them up like the Saudis do."

Cohen is best-known for his full-length film satires such as "Borat" and "Bruno." He recently continued his political prankster ways with the Showtime series "Who Is America?," which this stunt seemed similar to.
