Fox News contributor Sarah Palin on Sunday lashed out at fellow Fox News employee Chris Wallace after he announced on his show that Republicans had contacted him anonymously with research to oppose Sen. Ted Cruz’ (R-TX) plan to defund Obamacare.
“As soon as we listed Ted Cruz as our featured guest this week, I got unsolicited research and questions, not from Democrats, but from top Republicans to hammer Cruz,” Wallace explained.
In a tweet addressed to Wallace’s Fox News Sunday show, Palin demanded to know who was trying to “trash” Cruz.

“Keep it TRULY fair & balanced. Release the GOP names encouraging you to trash @SenTedCruz,” she werote. “No more anonymous sources.”
“Someday I’m actually going to tell America what I really think about GOP elephants that would actually turn on a senator who is fulfilling his campaign promises,” Palin told Fox News host Shannon Bream later on Sunday. “Now these GOP elephants that are trying to turn on someone who is trying to fight for the will of the people, for liberty and for economic justice if you will, to have those turn on him is extremely disappointing. It’s not surprising though.”
The former Alaska governor added: “What is surprising though is my dad — who is a science teacher, a natural history teacher — dad, if you’re watching this morning, if you’re out of moose camp already and you’re home, you are a teacher and you never told me that elephants were cannibalistic. I wish I would’ve known and then we would have a different tactic in the way we do campaigns.”
Palin also said that there other “mischiefs [sic] going on.”
“The mischief in this case are [sic] other very big things going on in the world that Obama would like to see distracted our minds away from things like, oh, perhaps he’d like to lob missiles into some foreign country’s civil war with no intention of having those missiles actually impact the outcome of that war,” she asserted. “That is something that is distracting away from the nation’s solvency that we must concentrate on. Obamacare is a huge part of our nation’s solvency.”
