Sarah Palin wafted a word cloud about Donald Trump that seems to imply she supports his presidential campaign.
The former half-term governor of Alaska and failed vice presidential candidate appeared Tuesday evening on Greta Van Susteren’s Fox News program, where she praised Trump’s proposal to end birthright citizenship — as spelled out by the 14th Amendment, reported Mediaite.
“He’s talking big picture, of course, plus specifics, thankfully — more specifics than any other candidate, by the way,” Palin said.
Palin said liberals deliberately had misrepresented Trump’s proposal to make Republicans appear “heartless” toward children born in the U.S. to immigrant parents, but she suggested the GOP’s platform on traditional marriage might encourage those children to self-deport along with their parents.
“If their parents broke the law and they’re here illegally, then they need to get back in line and because family is a unit,” Palin said. “Greta, the family sticks together, and the kids have to get in line with their mom and dad.”
Van Susteren asked the conservative firebrand whether she would endorse Trump, and she offered a stream of mostly positive-sounding words that resist close reading.
“He is the best thing to happen to the political class since the beauty of the Tea Party genuine movement rose up and shined light on crony capitalism and pulled the rug right out from under status quo politicians who just kind of embrace that permanent political class,” Palin said.
“Donald Trump, he’s got these Joe Six-Pack issues on his mind, and he’s got these Joe Six-Pack common sense solutions — he just happens to be an extremely successful and charismatic, with a very large platform, Joe Six-Pack,” she added.
