The White House released a statement Thursday about the remarks Sarah Palin made the day before. The statements Palin made regarded President Obama being to blame for her son beating his girlfriend until her eyes were swollen almost completely shut. Palin said this at a Trump rally on Wednesday:

‘They come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to this country.’
‘It starts from the top, the question though that comes from our own president, where they have to look at him and wonder, ‘Do you know what we go through, do you know what we’re trying to do to secure America and to secure the freedoms that have been bequeathed us?”

Somehow Palin gathered the self-confidence (and the ignorance) to make the statement, and thus make light of two very important issues: PTSD and domestic violence. See, not only does Sarah not hold her offspring accountable for their own actions, but she also doesn’t seem to frown much at the sight of her grandson’s mother battered beyond recognition.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest wasn’t at all amused by Sarah Palin’s blatant disregard of the seriousness of these topics OR her idiotic attempt to make her son’s proclivities for violence, the fault of the president. I mean come on. The woman has no shame!

Earnest stated this during a press conference Thursday:

‘I can tell you that the reaction of some people is to make light of the rhetoric that we see on the campaign trail, particularly from Gov. Palin, but the fact is domestic violence is not a joke. The issues she’s talking about are quite serious and certainly issues that we take quite seriously here.’

Basically we have all had it with you, Sarah. You don’t get to stand at your pulpits saying whatever you please. Your kids will be held responsible for the things they say and do, so please stop raising them to be insubordinate, homophobic, racist, abusive, idiots. Sincerely, America.
