Sarah Palin taunts ‘silly man’ Mitt Romney — and says GOP rebukes only make Trump stronger

Sarah Palin (Fox News)

Sarah Palin slapped back at Mitt Romney’s rebuke of Donald Trump.

The former half-term governor of Alaska and failed vice presidential candidate posted a Facebook response Thursday to the failed Republican presidential candidate’s harsh criticism of Trump, who Palin endorsed in January.

“Trump’s favorables just rose again, as did the veil you willingly wore while being used by the corrupt political establishment who can’t afford to lose their power in liberal D.C.,” Palin posted.

Romney called Trump a phony, fraud and buffoon in his speech and accused the real estate tycoon and reality TV star of “playing the members of the American public for suckers.”

Palin hurled insults back at Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee.

“Your speech was so silly and contradictory it confirmed the reasons Trump received tens of thousands more votes than you did in your own home state that you governed,” Palin said. “Silly man. Could the establishment really not find anyone credible in their holier-than-thou movement to spew the deception you regurgitated today on tv?”

Romney’s speech was a gamble, because many Trump voters are as angry at establishment Republicans like Romney as they are at Democrats.

Palin seems to think the GOP’s strategy to marginalize the party’s frontrunner will destroy the party that nominated her as its vice presidential candidate — a prospect she cheered.

“Independent, commonsense conservative patriots: now it’s our time to ramp it up, to prove even more adamantly that our movement in this time for choosing is wisely chosen by those who know what’s at stake for America,” Palin said. “The political establishment’s desperation is nailing its coffin — obviously a good thing — but we mustn’t let the Alinsky tactics used to destroy our We the People movement go unanswered.”

“His shoulders are broad, but Donald Trump must not carry this on his own shoulders,” she added. “Thankfully, Mitt’s anti-Republican Platform speech just strengthened our own. Americans’ shoulders just got bigger and broader. Way to go, Mitt.”

Trump’s Supreme Court gambit killed his last chance of defeating Joe Biden: Conservative columnist

Published

on

On Thursday, writing for The Washington Post, anti-Trump conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined how the president blew his final, best chance to turn around the public perception of the presidential race, and define it on his terms rather than Joe Biden's.

"With a president whose performance is as rotten as Trump’s (Gallup also shows him with a 43 percent job approval rating), his only hope was to make his opponent even more unappealing than himself," wrote Rubin. "Trump, however, never settled on an effective attack on Biden and, in any case, cannot stand ceding attention to anyone else. Trump’s performance, his lies, his antics, his insults, his crackpot conspiracy theories, his attacks on the media and his financial scandals have remained front and center. In other words, Trump’s raging narcissism has prevented him from doing what was necessary to give him a reasonable chance to win reelection."

Fox News host predicts impeachment for President Biden — right after inauguration

Published

on

Fox News' host Greg Gutfeld ranted on Thursday that the day after Vice President Joe Biden is inaugurated that Republicans should impeach him.

Yelling into the camera, Gutfeld ranted that Trump got rid of ISIS and stopped North Korea from setting off nuclear weapons, both of which aren't true.

"So, now we're all talking about are "words, words, words' as opposed to Joe Biden's deeds," he continued. "There's a foreign policy issue we should discuss. He has compromised himself. And to Jesse's point, once -- If he actually wins, impeachment proceedings start the day after inauguration."

Nicolle Wallace blasts Trump’s fake ‘manliness’ for refusing to protect his key supporters

Published

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace blasted President Donald Trump for not caring about his staff much less "his own godd*mn supporters."

Speaking with conservative Charlie Sykes and Democratic strategist Basil Smikle, Wallace showed a new Lincoln Project ad with Sam Elliott about fathers and sons and what it means to be a "man of family and faith."

"Above all they taught us to own up to it when we did something wrong," the ad says before showing a video of Trump saying he doesn't accept responsibility for the failures of the coronavirus.
