jokeAdd U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson to the list of politicians, celebrities and public figures who have been fooled by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

The Republican from Springdale will appear on a new TV program on Showtime starring the comedian famous for “Borat,” “Bruno” and “Ali G” among other characters.

But Wilson did not think he was being interviewed by Cohen during his appearance on “Who Is America?” which will premiere Sunday night. The House of Representatives member believed he was speaking with an Israeli anti-terror expert named Col. Erran Morad.

During the discussion with “Morad,” Wilson discussed the merits of arming very young students as a deterrent to school shootings.

It was called the Kinderguardians program. Cohen’s character said its purpose was to arm children from the ages of 3 to 16 years old in Israel.

In a clip from “Who Is America?” Wilson was filmed discussing the Kinderguardians program, appearing to voice support for the idea of arming young school kids.

“A 3-year-old cannot defend itself from an assault rifle by throwing a Hello Kitty pencil case at it,” Wilson says in a clip from the show. “Our founding fathers did not put an age limit on the Second Amendment.”

“It’s something we should think about in America, by putting guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens, good guys, whether they be teachers, or whether they actually be talented children or highly-trained preschoolers,” Lott said on the program.
