Georgia lawmaker under fire after outrageous appearance on Sacha Baron Cohen show


Comedic actor Sacha Baron Cohen has managed to fool some of the biggest names in news and politics on his new Showtime series “Who Is America?” Most recently, Jason Spencer, a Republican state lawmaker in Georgia, is under fire after Cohen, undercover as a terrorism expert, convinced him to take part in outlandish actions on camera, including screaming the N-word to ward off a terrorist attack. Spencer faced calls for resignation immediately after Sunday’s episode aired. NBC’s Gadi Schwartz reports for TODAY from Los Angeles.
