On May 8, 2016, Sarah Palin, the former Republican Governor of Alaska declared during an interview with CNN that she is ready to join presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump as his running mate for the upcoming national election.
“I think I’m pretty much as vetted as anybody in the country could be vetted. I think there are so many other great people out there in American that could serve in this position. I think if somebody wanted to choose me, they already know who I am, what I stand for. They wouldn’t be in for any surprises.”
In addition to being an early supporter of Trump’s campaign, Sarah Palin formally endorsed Donald Trump for President in January 2016. Previously, in July of 2015, Donald Trump declared he would offer her a position in his Cabinet if he became President.
“She’s really somebody who knows what’s happening. She’s a special person. She’s really a special person. And I think people know that and she’s got a following that’s unbelievable.
“I’m looking at some of these candidates, they’re weak, they’re ineffective and to a degree that’s almost hard to believe. And, you know, they like the Sarah Palin kind of strength. You just don’t see very much of it anymore.”
Of course, nobody should object to Sarah Palin’s desire to become Donald Trump’s running mate in the upcoming 2016 election. As we remember, in 2008, John McCain chose her as his running mate, a blatant act of tokening done purely in the interest of luring female Democrat voters who were disappointed that Hillary was not chosen as their nominee. Of course, people on the left knew that all too well, what with feminist icon Gloria Steinem remarking:
“Palin shares nothing but a chromosome with Clinton.”
Sarah Palin’s embarrassing interview with Katie Couric also pretty much guaranteed that Barack Obama would be elected President, which is of course what did happen. If Sarah Palin decided to join Donald Trump as his running mate, it is doubtful that the outcome would be any different for the Democrats this coming November.
