It’s almost like she never left.
Who am I talking about?
“Ready to make America great again! Are you ready to stump for Trump? I’m here to support the next president of the United States Donald Trump!”
That’s right, she’s back!!
Sarah Palin jumped on the Make-America-Great-Again locomotive and wasted no time going after President Obama.
It was just like old times.
“Just last week we’re watching our sailors suffer and be humiliated on a world stage at the hands of Iranian captors in violation of international law. Because a weak-kneed capitulator chief has decided that America will lead from behind.”
Trump, who is used to being the center of attention, stood there for 20 minutes, awkwardly staring at Sarah in the spotlight.
I asked him about that on my show last night:
No, not at all. No, I was, I was there. I mean I didn’t know it was going to be quite that long, but she made a beautiful — you know, she made a very good speech. No, I wasn’t uncomf — I was very happy. I would have normally left the stage and let her speak, but I thought it would be nice, I thought it would be, you know, frankly nice if I was there. I thought it would be disrespectful to her if I left the stage. So, no, I wasn’t uncomfortable at all.”
While it might seem like an odd alliance, the actual courting began way back in 2008.
He praised her on Larry King’s CNN show for rejuvenating the Republican Party.
Palin, in turn, supported Trump in 2011 when he questioned President Obama’s citizenship.
Fast forward to 2015, Palin complimented Trump for not backing down to the media after his comments about Mexican immigrants.
She even defended his temporary ban on Muslim immigrants.
You get the point.
It’s a marriage made in political heaven.
Could she be Trump’s not-so-secret weapon?
Here’s the truth, they both drive news headlines and TV ratings.
One is a reality star turned politician, the other is a politician turned reality star.
He makes her relevant again.
And she buys him street cred with Evangelicals and tea party voters.
Sarah Palin will either be Donald Trump’s winning ticket for 2016 or get voted off the island.
