Dumb and dumber – Sarah Palin gives moving speech about American politics and Donald Trump


If you thought the 2016 presidential campaigns couldn”t get any more horrific, you”re in for a rude awakening.

That”s right, good ole Donald Trump decided to bring out the big guns when he welcomed Sarah Palin to the stage during a speech in Iowa.

Maybe she truly believes Trump is going to be the next best President of the United States. Maybe this was just her desperate attempt to remain politically relevant.

Trump is competing in recent Iowa polls with fellow candidate Ted Cruz. He decided to skip the most recent GOP debate because of his current feud with Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly.

The Palin endorsement appears to be Trump”s newest attempt to get back underneath the spotlight without much effort.

Palin began her speech by finding some common ground with Trump – the dislike they”ve both received from the press. This, of course, is something Trump has been dealing with even before he decided to run for president, so it is understandable how they have formed a bond over America”s animosity toward them.

This isn”t the only similarity between the two politicians. Some people call them “bold” for what they say, because they “give it to you straight.”

Others call their complete disregard for political correctness “over the line” and “inappropriate.”

Not to mention, they both starred in reality television shows. I guess the public should have seen it coming, they”re practically made for each other.

Palin gave Trump quite an endorsement speech as he stood beside her with a smile plastered on his face.

“You quit footing the bill for these nations who are oil-rich, we”re paying for some of their squirmishes that have been going on for centuries. Where they”re fighting each other and yelling “Allahu akbar,” calling jihad on each other”s heads forever and ever,” Palin said.

Not only did Palin invent the word, “squirmishes,” but she also makes a good point about the only interest Americans should keep in mind – ourselves.

The delirious way in which Palin gave her speech truly excited the crowd as she frequently repeated Trump”s campaign slogan, “Make America great again.”

Props to Trump for keeping a smile on his face for the entire speech, because I”m sure within the first few minutes of her 20-minute ramble he realized what a horrible mistake he”d made.

Honestly, this endorsement is almost too entertaining and the pair makes it easy to dislike them. If Trump ends up being the best GOP candidate for the campaign, then that says a lot about America”s political system.

In the words of the great and powerful Sarah Palin,   “This is going to be so much fun.”

This was, without a doubt, the most accurate statement in her endorsement. This is going to be so much fun indeed.
