Sarah Palin can slaughter syntax just as brutally as President Donald Trump, as adeptly demonstrated in this blast-from-the-past video from just after her election loss as Sen. John McCain’s (R-A) 2008 running mate.
While Palin walks through the important “value” of allowing businesses to progress and budget problems facing her state a large turkey struggles as a man pushes the bird’s head into a machine that promptly decapitates it. The headless turkey is then pulled from the machine as the noggin plops into a trough of blood and other turkey heads.
“Ya know, thankfully, we’re in a good position, still, fiscally speaking,” Palin explained, while another bird is inserted into the machine. “But it made no sense that at $140 a barrel oil lawmakers wanted to spend, spend, spend. We were warning them then, the administration was, that we had to prepare for the day that the price of oil would plummet, which, of course, it has done.”
As Palin continues to comment on the price of oil and its impact on the Alaska economy, the man behind her seems to be having trouble killing the turkey. The legs of the bird shake fiercely and the man tries to adjust something around the head of the flightless bird. At one point, he looks behind him awkwardly, as if he wonders who is watching the slaughter go awry.
“Oh! Well, this was neat! I was happy to get to be invited to participate in this!” Palin said.
Watch the video below, set to the KC & Sunshine Band song “Shake Your Booty.”
Rudy Giuliani under potential investigation for work he did for Iranian terrorist group
NBC News is reporting another complicated scandal Rudy Giuliani finds himself in.
According to the report, in 2017 former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey met with an Iranian group that was once considered a terrorist organization until 2012. Giuliani came along for the meeting with Mujahedeen e-Khalq (MEK) and has been engaged with the group for years.
"For nearly a decade, the former law partners have pushed the agenda of the MEK, giving paid speeches and writing newspaper op-eds expressing support for a group linked to the deaths of six Americans in the 1970s," NBC News reported Thursday.
‘Absolute contempt for the American people’: Trump destroyed for shameless G7 golf club announcement

‘I can’t believe what I see’: Ex-Russian foreign minister dumbstruck after Trump cedes American dominance
During an appearance on MSNBC this Thursday, former Russian foreign minister Andrei Kozyrev commented on the "meltdown of American diplomacy" in the wake of President Trump's withdrawal of US troops from northeast Syria, effectively green-lighting Turkey's invasion of the region.
According to Kozyrev, Trump's recent foreign policy decisions "plays right into [Putin's] hands," adding that it's clear now why Putin's "cohorts were celebrating when Trump was elected."
"Russia is in support of [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] who is losing ... and who is isolated there [in a war] where there is no end," Kozyrev said. "It's a dead-end war there which they are waging, and all off a sudden [Trump] is coming [Putin's] way from the American side."
