You probably thought this whole circus-like sideshow known as the Donald Trump for President campaign couldn’t get much more ridiculous or just downright surreal. After the Donald’s comments on Senator John McCain not being a hero because he was a POW, I also thought this story had reached the height of absurdity.
And then along comes Sarah Palin.
Palin, who ran as candidate for Vice President with McCain in 2008, is now sounding off on the whole dustup between Trump and McCain.
In an email the former half-term Alaska Governor sent to CNN, Palin wrote:
“Sen. McCain dedicated his life to serving our country, and in my humble opinion the sacrifices made by all ethical service members are heroic — putting it all on the line to defend freedom IS heroic — and Donald Trump is a hero in another arena.”
Let’s see: Donald Trump got five deferments so he didn’t have to serve in Vietnam and he’s a hero, too? Hmm…well, Ms. Palin, your definition of a hero must be radically different from mine.
But Palin was far from finished spewing out her dunderheaded logic:
“Trump is the candidate giving voice to untold millions of fed-up Americans witnessing a purposeful destruction of our economy and the equal opportunity for success that made America exceptional. We’re watching career politicians throw away our kids’ future through bankrupting public budgets and ripping open our porous borders which, obvious to all us non-politicians, puts us at great risk.”
Here we go again. Is the Trump campaign now paying Sarah Palin to write propaganda for them? If so, then Trump is an even bigger moron than I had him pegged as being.
But wait, there’s more crapola from Palin, who continued:
“Everywhere I go, hard-working patriotic Americans — not ‘crazies’ or ‘wacko birds’ — ask me to pass on to Mr. Trump encouragement to keep educating the masses about true ramifications of illegal immigration, and in general the real state of our union.”
Well, if they’re talking to you, Sarah, they automatically qualify as crazies and wackobirds, because those kinds of folks tend to be attracted to fellow extremists.
In closing, Palin declared:
“We can keep the debate focused on significant issues at hand. I leave politics of personal destruction to those on the Left and lazy media lapdogs who’s only take away from any debate is any salacious slip-up, as if they’ve never wanted to restate something they’ve publicly uttered. I’ll fight the exhausting, divisive strategy that’s taken hold under the current crop of politicians who refuse to allow our United States to unite. Both Mr. Trump and Sen. McCain can contribute their gifts and talents to join that fight to work together, because the Left is headed the other direction and under that desired division we will fall.”
And there you have it: The final nail in the coffin of the Trump 2016 campaign. When Sarah Palin starts defending you, the end is near.
