The last few days have seen Sarah Palin out-trump the Donald on stupidity
Donald Trump and Sarah Palin are buddies apparently. A match made in conservative heaven and another case of the blind leading the blank. How the half-term governor managed to get back on television is beyond my understanding, but now that she’s back, let’s have a little fun. First, speaking on CNN, Palin said referring to immigrants:
“You want to be in America, A, you’d better be here legally or you’re out of here. B, when you’re here, let’s speak American… Let’s speak English, and that’s a kind of a unifying aspect of a nation is the language that is understood by all.”
Clearly she’s never been to Canada where some of us speak Canadian and some of us speak Quebec.
Moving on, when asked to comment about Trump’s statement that he “would love to have the strength of Sarah Palin in my administration,” Palin doubled down on the dumbness when she made her feelings known about being his Secretary of Energy:
“I think a lot about the Department of Energy because energy is my baby. Oil, gas, minerals, those things God has dumped on this part of the earth for mankind’s use instead of us relying on unfriendly foreign nations for us to import their resources”
Every single part of that quote is ridiculous. First of all, The United States doesn’t import much oil from unfriendly countries anymore, unless she’s referring to Canada as an unfriendly foreign nation.
Second, The US Department of Energy is not about mining for oil, gas and minerals at all. That job belongs to the Department of the Interior. The DOE is all nuclear; nuclear weapons and nuclear waste. Its main duties include nuclear energy research, not production. It is also responsible to ensure that our nuclear weapon stockpile remains safe, secure, reliable, and under positive control.
In true half-term governor fashion, Palin then said she would work herself out of a job:
“If I were head of [DOE] I’d get rid of it. I’d let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people that are affected by the developments within their states.”
Little did Palin realize, she was advocating to eliminate all the safety and security measures surrounding America’s nuclear weapons. Bravo!
Sarah Palin then tried to defend Donald Trump’s own uninformed foreign policy shortcomings when he couldn’t even explain the difference between Hamas and Hezbollah. “I don’t think the public gives a flying flip if somebody knows who, today, is a specific leader of a specific region or a religion or anything.” Actually we do…
Palin and Trump both spoke at rally in Washington yesterday to protest Barack Obama’s Iran Nuclear deal. As a Black Lives Matter protester began to heckle the former vice-presidential candidate, he was hauled away from police as Palin said:
“Since our president won’t say it, since he still hasn’t called off the dogs, we’ll say it: Police officers and first-responders all across this great land, we got your back! We salute you! Thank you, police officers!”
How nice. I guess you’re not allowed to protest at a protest. Speaking on Bill O’Reilly’s show the night before, Trump said referring to Black Lives Matter:
“I think they’re trouble. I think they’re looking for trouble. I looked at a couple of the people that were interviewed from the group. I saw them with hate coming down the street last week talking about cops and police, and what should be done to them. And that was not good. And I think it’s a disgrace that they’re getting away with it.”
Palin would be the perfect match for Trump. These Tea Party darlings both cater to a bigoted conservative base that desires the return of an America that never actually existed to begin with. One where everyone is white and rich with a gun and bible by their side. It also goes without saying that Palin makes trump look semi-intelligent next to her.
If a Palin/Trump ticket ever comes to fruition, it’ll take me days to stop laughing.
