Sarah Palin: Trump’s policies sound like they came after drinking a six-pack — and that’s why I like him

Published

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.

On Thursday, Axios reported that during a reception at the Oval Office, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan — who has come under international scrutiny for his brutal treatment of Kurdish freedom fighters — whipped out his iPad and made President Donald Trump and several GOP senators watch a video describing Kurds as terrorists.

Commenters on social media were quick to excoriate the president for allowing a notorious strongman to bring propaganda into the White House and make U.S. officials watch it on his personal tablet:

GOP’s best defense of Trump’s ‘corrupt schemes’ may doom him in 2020 election: conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative columnist Eli Lake thinks that House Republicans may have done a good job of defending President Donald Trump during Wednesday's opening impeachment hearings -- but he also thinks they undermined his chances of winning the 2020 election.

In his latest Bloomberg column, Lake argues that Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) made a smart argument in favor of not impeaching the president: Namely, that his attempt to extort Ukraine into investigating former Vice President Joe Biden fell apart before it could be fully executed.

Trump flying in for last-ditch rally to save Louisiana GOP governor candidate with ‘really bad’ vote returns

Published

on

Republicans suffered a major blow in Kentucky after Gov. Matt Bevin, a firm ally of President Donald Trump, was defeated by Democratic state Attorney General Andy Beshear — despite the president's efforts to help the GOP, culminating in a massive rally in Lexington on the eve of the election.

Now, according to Politico, GOP strategists are worried that a similar outcome could happen in Louisiana, where conservative Democrat John Bel Edwards will stand for re-election on Saturday against Trump-loving businessman Eddie Rispone.
