White House Responds To Palin


Damn, my broadband died on me last night and I am just getting up to speed on the latest events. What. A. Bitch.

Courtesy of Salon:

Acknowledging that “it’s kind of the elephant in the room” during a rambling speechat a Donald Trump rally this week, Sarah Palin proceeded to imply that her son Track’s violent behavior and subsequent arrest for a domestic dispute this week was caused by PTSD, somehow also managing to deflect blame to President Obama:

When my own son is going through what he goes though coming back, I can certainly relate to other families who feel these ramifications of PTSD… our soldiers do return with. And it makes me realize more than ever it is now or never for the sake of America’s finest that we have a commander-in-chief who will respect them. They have to question if they’re respected anymore. It starts from the top. The question, though, 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?

Asked about Palin’s comments during Thursday’s briefing, White House press secretary Josh Earnest did not say if the president had seen Palin’s comments but did criticize what he called “the reaction by some … to make light of some of the rhetoric that we see on the campaign trail, particularly from governor Palin.”

“But the fact is domestic violence is not a joke,” Earnest added. “Gun violence is not a joke. Problems with addiction are not a joke.”

I would not like to be Track Palin facing the wrath of his mother on her return. The White House finally (sorta) acknowledged her, and it is for all the wrong reasons.

I’ve managed to see Morning Joe and the comments about her raising money, and also the brilliant Colbert skit. The comments on her FB page are pretty bad.

I’m off to have another look around the toobs to see what I have missed.

    “…about her raising money…”

    The grubby little grifter is SO predictable..
    “Sarah Palin’s political action committee has begun fundraising off the former governor’s endorsement of Donald Trump for president. An email sent Wednesday from SarahPAC calls Palin’s backing of the Republican frontrunner “historic” and touts itself as planning to “continue endorsing anti-establishment candidates who will not play politics as usual.” And then the call for donations: “In order to get Sarah to political events to support endorsed candidates we need your help to fundraise her travel.” According to Politico, the fundraising email is especially unusual because presidential campaigns typically foot the bill to travel their surrogates to campaign events.”

        Yes she is. And so are these wretched media people who keep feeding her the oxygen of publicity. They share the blame for her continued poisonous presence as a never ending headline in American life. Her shelf life is beyond over, she should have been kicked to the curb by every thinking journalist years ago but they’ve abrogated every shred of integrity and journalistic responsibility for sheer sensationalism and the pathetic “Look at me” factor.

    I watched the portion of her speech about the “elephant in the room” she was smiling and smirking it was disgusting. Using her kid again or personal gain. http://www.motherjones.com/

    I’m seriously worried THIS IS the best we can do for the “leader of the free world” I can’t support anyone running on either side. I will vote for the eventual Democratic candidate while holding my nose
