Donald Trump repeatedly said throughout the presidential campaign that he would make looking after our veterans his No. 1 priority.
And it turns out that the best person to make sure our vets get the care they need could be... former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin?
ABC News' sources claim that Palin is being considered by Trump to serve as the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, despite the fact that she has no personal experience in the military and has never before run a federal government agency.
NEW: Sarah Palin under consideration for Secretary of Veterans Affairs, sources tell @ABC News. -@shushwalshe— ABC News Politics (@ABC News Politics) 1480530036.0
The reaction from Twitter was swift -- and it was completely horrified by ABC's scoop.
Even some conservatives who admired Palin's commitment to looking after our veterans worried that she's just not cut out for this kind of work:
Palin is passionate about the VA, but this is still a bad idea. https://t.co/zS1CrH6Fwx— Dan McLaughlin (@Dan McLaughlin) 1480530181.0

Below are some other choice reactions to the news that Trump may really appoint his fellow former reality TV star to run the VA.
I cannot even fathom the thought process that leads one to float Sarah Palin for the VA. Did they throw a dart at the wall?— Dave Sund (@Dave Sund) 1480530636.0
If Sarah Palin doesn't get the VA job, maybe she'll be the Ambassador to Russia— The Democrat Machine (@The Democrat Machine) 1480531127.0
Logs in to twitter. Sees Sarah Palin is being considered for a cabinet post. Logs off Twitter. Throws phone out the window.— nyygirl333 (@nyygirl333) 1480531108.0
on the plus side maybe we'll hear from Sarah Palin less if she actually has a fucking job— Vince Mancini (@Vince Mancini) 1480531062.0
I wouldn't worry too much folks. @SarahPalinUSA will most likely quit halfway through so she can take a book deal.… https://t.co/rkfMv8pwmx— Mike Lewis 🏴 (@Mike Lewis 🏴) 1480530941.0
