Sarcasm is one of the problem that affect the result of sentiment analysis. According to Maynard and Greenwood (2014), performance of sentiment analysis can be improved when sarcasm also identified. Some research used Naïve Bayes and Random Forest method on sentiment analysis process. On Salles, dkk (2018) research, in some cases Random Forest outperform the performance by Support Vector Machine that known as a superior method. In this research, we did sentiment analysis on comment section on Instagram account of Indonesian politician. This research compare the accuracy of  sentiment analysis with sarcasm detection and analysis sentiment without sarcasm detection, sentiment analysis with Naïve Bayes and Random Forest method  then Random Forest for sarcasm detection. This research resulted in accuracy value in sentiment analysis without sarcasm detection with Naïve Bayes 61%, with Random Forest method 72%. Accuracy on sentiment analysis with sarcasm detection using Naïve Bayes – Random Forest method is 60% and using Random Forest – Random Forest method is 71%.
