Internet erupts with mockery after Sarah Palin misquotes ‘Gold Digger’ to bash the New York Times
Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin took to Twitter Monday to share a head-scratcher of a tweet featuring the NSFW lyrics of Kanye West.
NYT: I ain’t saying you a golddigger, but there’s a reason you messin’ with broke, broke, broke. https://t.co/PYkWNyyx9k

The song she’s referencing, of course, is West’s 2005 hit “Gold Digger” featuring Jamie Foxx—although the former Alaska governor inexplicably replaced the original lyrics (“you ain’t messin’ with no broke n****r) with “there’s a reason you messin’ with broke, broke, broke.”
Naturally, Twitter users were quick to comment on Palin’s pop-culture revisionism:

@SarahPalinUSA congratulations, your caption is somehow stupider than the article it’s quoting. That’s a tremendous achievement.
