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.”

Philonise Floyd was interviewed by the Rev. Al Sharpton on "Politics Nation."

"They all need to be convicted of first degree murder and given the death penalty," Floyd said.
"What was the conversation with President Trump like?" Sharpton asked.
"It was so fast," Floyd replied.
"He didn't give me an opportunity to even speak. It was hard, I was trying to talk to him, but he just kept like pushing me off, like 'I don't want to hear what you're talking about.' And I just told him I want justice. I said that I couldn't believe they committed a modern-day lynching in broad daylight."
Bill Barr slammed by ex-FBI official for ignoring the right-wing ‘Boogaloo Bois’ infiltrating protests
Attorney General Bill Barr was slammed by the former assistant director for counterintelligence at the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Saturday for misleading Americans about the source of violence at the protests over the killing of George Floyd while in police custody.
"There's evidence developing, Brian, that the organization we're seeing of the most violent protesters is coming from a couple of disturbing places," both, by the way, there's disparate in terms in being from the right or the left. here's what those who monitor these groups and sites are seeing.

Trump is the ‘greatest troll in the history of the internet’ and Twitter needs to ‘pull the plug’: NYT columnist
President Donald Trump would face an existential crisis if Twitter were to enforce it's own rules and hold him accountable -- and one New York Times columnist wants to see it happen.
"C’mon, @Jack. You can do it," Maureen Dowd wrote, referring to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey with his username on the platform.
She urged Dorsey to "just pull the plug on him."
"You could answer the existential question of whether @realDonaldTrump even exists if he doesn’t exist on Twitter. I tweet, therefore I am. Dorsey meets Descartes," she explained. "All it would take is one sweet click to force the greatest troll in the history of the internet to meet his maker."
