Sarah Palin is finally breaking her silence on some of the things she endured from John McCain and his family.
Sarah, ever loyal, kept her mouth shut for the most part but has had enough and is speaking out. Good for her.
What the media, Democrats, and even the GOP did to her was a disgrace. From The Daily Mail:
Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has described how not being invited to her running mate’s funeral was a ‘gut punch’.
Palin said she was ‘disinvited’ to John McCain’s funeral, despite running on his presidential campaign ticket in 2008.
Describing how she felt about not attending the service last year, the former Alaskan governor said: ‘They [the McCain family] didn’t have to embarrass me and others, it wasn’t just me it was other people from our campaign back in 2008… it’s kind of a gut punch.’
Speaking live to presenters Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid from her home in Wasilla, Alaska, she said: ‘It’s been bizarre. When I was tapped to run as the first woman VP candidate on the Republican ticket, I had nearly 90 per cent approval rating as the governor of the largest state.
‘It made sense to me and my supporters why John McCain did tap me. But, yeah, once getting out there on that national stage and realizing that there are so many snakes in politics, they are so many snakes in the Republican party who were running the show and allowing me to get clobbered.
‘They were looking for someone to blame for their really crappy type of campaign that they ran. I was a scapegoat.
‘That’s in the past though…sometimes you win, sometimes you learn and I certainly learned through that.’
Asked why she didn’t attend McCain’s funeral last September, Palin revealed: ‘I wasn’t invited. [I would have gone] because I am a respectful person…I was kind of surprised to be publicly disinvited to the funeral.
‘They didn’t have to embarrass me and others, it wasn’t just me it was other people from our campaign back in 2008… it’s kind of a gut punch.’
Palin also said Trump stands a strong chance of being re-elected because no other candidate ‘comes close’.
She said: ‘Consider what Trump has been able to accomplish, despite it being a three against one game going on here.
‘You have the Democrats, the media, which is complicit with the Democratic shenanigans and then you have obstructionists in his own party, and despite that the President has enough support of the people, the average forgotten man and woman of America. He has had, relatively speaking, a reasonably wonderful two years.’
