Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has proven time and time again that he doesn’t have any class or tact, but now he is even cracking jokes about the husband of his campaign buddy Sarah Palin just one day after he was seriously injured in a snowmobile accident.
Trump was talking about last year’s shooting in San Bernadino, California, (perpetuating to idiotic good guy with a gun myth), when he decided to get a laugh at the expense of Todd Palin, who was lying in an Alaskan hospital bed at the time.
If Todd Palin were in that room — frankly, if Sarah Palin [R-Alaska] were in that room, forget about Todd, especially now — if Sarah Palin were in that room, if somebody were in that room, that had some kind of gun attached to the hip, attached to the ankle, where bullets can fly in the other direction, you wouldn’t have had this.
Trump made the callous remarks during a campaign rally in Tampa, Fla., where Trump is trying to secure a win in the Florida primaries. Sarah Palin had cancelled a scheduled appearance with the GOP front-runner at The Villages, Fla. on Monday after news broke of her husband’s accident..
Her dedication to family values was short-lived, however, because she decided to stay in Florida rather than go to Alaska to be by her injured husband’s side. She introduced him at the rally in Tampa, saying that her husband’s accident had opened her eyes to the important things in life, like helping a racist reality star with aspirations of being the next Hitler become president of the United States. I mean hey, who else would offer a dingbat like her a seat in their administration, right? Gotta do what you gotta do I guess.
Sarah didn’t have time to be with her husband herself, what with her obligations to the fascist presidential hopeful who is joking about her husband’s injuries and all, but she did post on Facebook to thank everyone for their prayers.
Todd is our rock… toughest guy I know. Thank you for your prayers as he recovers following a snowmachine accident last night. You know, your prayers have meant so much to our family over the years and I’ve not thanked you enough for providing us that shield of faith. God bless you, too!
According to Todd Palin’s father, he is healing up and is expected to recover. Trump, however, clearly doesn’t give a shit one way or the other.
