Admiral General Aladeen showed support for President Barack Obama's Republican challenger Mitt Romney at a press conference in New York City on Monday (May 7).
"I would [have said Rick] Santorum, despite his liberal views. Since he is out of the running, I don't know," Admiral General Aladeen joked. "In terms of policies, I would have to say the Republicans if they could only become a little less extreme. I mean, there are some real double standards. What people call genocide in my country is called the judicial system in Texas.
"In terms of getting into power in America, I would have to support the Democrats. If they can enable a Kenyan to become president, then why not a Wadiyan?"
The Dictator added of Romney: "If it was money that I was giving, I would support and give my full support to Mitchell Romney. He has the makings of a great dictator! He is incredibly wealthy, but pays no taxes.
"It's not much of a leap from firing people to firing squads, from putting pets on top of cars to putting political dissidents on top of cars."
Admiral General Aladeen also bemoaned the treatment of dictators by the international community in the last several years.
"Dictators have fallen one by one: Saddam, Kim Jong-il, Gaddafi... and Oprah," he quipped.
Baron Cohen recently appeared in-character as The Dictator on Saturday Night Live, where he mock-tortured legendary director Martin Scorsese.
The Dictator opens in US and UK cinemas on May 16.
