With the Alabama Republican Senate primary election looming, former Trump White House aide Sebastian Gorka and former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin will be teaming up to help rally support for controversial GOP candidate Roy Moore.
As Axios reports, Gorka is “co-headlining a rally with Sarah Palin in Montgomery, Alabama on Thursday night” to back Moore’s candidacy, despite the fact that President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have both endorsed rival Luther Strange.
Earlier this year, Moore offered praise for Russian President Vladimir Putin for his promoting laws that repress homosexuals, while at the same time attacking the United States for legalizing gay marriage. Moore has also suggested that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were God’s way of punishing America for turning away from Biblical law.
News that both Palin and Gorka would be headlining a rally for such a candidate sent shockwaves of both laughter and horror throughout the internet, as one Twitter user described their alliance as “lice teaming up with crabs.”
Check out some top reactions below.

If your Senate campaign is going so badly that you need Palin & Gorka as part of your campaign, you may want to re-think your career choices

Moore, Bannon, Palin, Gorka. All they're missing is George Wallace. GOP must decide whether this is a third party, or the Republican Party. https://t.co/m1K3bI0idQ

It’s nice knowing when all the people you don’t want to hang around are drawn to one place at once.
