Sometimes I wonder if Sarah Palin ever hears the words that she says coming out of her mouth. Others think maybe she’s a wino, or drunk or even on pills, some even chalk it up to her being an idiot. I won’t purport to know any answers, simply to say there’s something that isn’t right with that lady.
The first thing Palin said in her interview Monday with the Today Show that will make you want to tear your hair out was that she hopes Iowa voters aren’t out there trying to pick out the “most Christian-y Godly-est” candidate to support. “Because, you know, who are we to judge one and other’s level of faith, our Christian Quotient, if you will.” Funny you should say that, Mrs. Palin, because you and your Republican pals have done exactly that more times than I can count when talking about President Obama and many other Democrats.
It gets worse. If you recall, Palin endorsed Trump earlier this month, and while she was doing so, her son, Track Palin, was being arraigned on assault and domestic violence charges back in Alaska. After her speech endorsing Donald Trump, many people, including me, called Palin out for blaming President Obama for her son’s PTSD when he came back from his service.
When she was asked about it in her interview Monday, instead of owning up to the fact that she has no idea what she’s talking about, or that she’s a partisan hack who has little to no understanding or knowledge of actual policy or even history, she did what she does best: deny and blame the media.
Step 1: Deny
“I never said that,” Palin claimed, her eyes quickly filling with rage “No, I never said that.”
Step 2: Blame the media
“You guys brought me to talk about Iowa politics and the caucus tonight, not to talk about my kids, and that was a promise. As things go in the world of media, you guys don’t always keep your promises, evidently,” she told Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie.
Interesting she says that. Let’s take a look at what the speech actually said, word for word (emphasis mine)
My son, like so many others — they come back a bit different. They come back hardened. They come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to this country. And that starts from the top. It’s a shame that our military personnel even have to wonder, if they have to question if they are respected anymore. That comes from our own president. Where they have to look at him and wonder, ‘Do you know what we go through? Do you know what we’re trying to do to secure America?’ So when my own son is going through what he goes through coming back, I can certainly relate with other families who kind of feel these ramifications of some PTSD and some of the woundedness that our soldiers do return with.
If that’s not blaming President Obama, I don’t know who else “that comes from our own president” is referring to. Is there another president out there that we should be blaming?
