WASHINGTON - Comedian Sascha Baron Cohen endorsed Mitt Romney for president on Monday at a press conference he held while in character for his new movie, "The Dictator."
"I would say Santorum, despite his liberal views, but since he is out of the running, I don't know," he said, when asked which GOP candidate he would support for president.
"But if it was money that I was giving, I give my full support to Mitchell Romney. He has the makings of a great dictator. He is incredibly wealthy, but pays no taxes."
Cohen's movie hits theaters on May 16.
