Former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin accused Rep. Steve King (R-IA) of “huffing ethanol” on Monday after he suggested that GOP hopeful Donald Trump had bought her support.
“There aren’t very many people who have been able to say no to Donald Trump,” King told MSNBC recently. “He has a massive amount of assets and resources that he can deploy when it comes time to convince someone. That has to impact how people think.”
Speaking at a Trump event in Cedar Rapids on Monday, Palin fired back at King.
“Politics being kind of brutal business, you find out who your friends are,” she said, citing King as an example of the “brutality” being directed at her.
“He’s accusing me on MSNBC — first, MSNBC, really — of selling my support to Mr. Trump,” Palin continued. “This is why people don’t like politics, they know that it’s a dirty business because people will say things they know are untrue.”
“Maybe he’s forgotten some of his heart in the heartland, got a touch of that Potomac Fever there in D.C. Maybe he’s been — I don’t know — maybe he’s been hanging out in a corn field too long huffing ethanol or something because his accusations here are way off base.”

Foreign trolls are trying to create a ‘circular firing squad’ among US veterans: digital researcher
Foreign troll accounts have been working to sow division and create a "circular firing squad" among American veterans, a veterans advocate warned CNN on Wednesday.
During an interview with Brianna Keilar, Kris Goldsmith of Vietnam Veterans for America talked about the ways that trolls have been infiltrating veterans organizations and trying to divide their members along political and racial lines.
Goldsmith said that two years ago his group notice an "impostor Facebook account" that would spread misinformation and propaganda to its members.
"After months of studying it, we came to recognize that it was an entity somewhere in Bulgaria who was spreading falsified news," he explained. "So what they do is copy and paste a real story about something like veterans' benefits possibly getting cut, change the date, and make it look fresh and get people upset."
Dem lawmaker rains hell on ‘thug’ Corey Lewandowski on CNN: ‘He was shown to be a liar’
Rep. Steven Cohen (D-TN) dropped the hammer on Trump lackey Corey Lewandowski for obstructing the House Judiciary Committee earlier this week during an appearance on CNN.
CNN's Brianna Keilar started off the interview by questioning Cohen why Democratic lawmakers didn't do a better job of anticipating how Lewandowski would behave during his testimony. Cohen responded by saying he and his colleagues did just that.
"We knew he was going to be petulant, we knew he was an enforcer and a thug, and we knew he would try to protect the president," he said. "That's what he did."
Cohen went on to praise Democratic lawmakers for asking Lewandowski tough questions, and he said attorney Barry Berke "destroyed" the former Trump campaign manager.
