After Sarah Palin said “It wasn’t tough,” to make a decision whether to endorse Ted Cruz or Donald Trump for president on NBC Monday morning, conservative Iowa Rep. Steve King noted that Palin did not state why during his MSNBC interview later that day, adding the strong implication that she had been bought off by Trump for her endorsement. Not one to take a jab lying down, Palin couldn’t help but swipe back at King during her live, broadcasted endorsement of Trump at a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
“I don’t know very many people who have been able to say, ‘No,’ to Donald Trump. He has a massive amount of assets and resources that he can deploy when it comes time to convince someone, and that has to affect the way people think,” King said, adding, “Not only the plus-ups of the promotion, the limelight, all the resources that are there…”
Naturally, Palin didn’t appreciate being accused of selling out to the highest bidder, true as the statement likely is. That’s why she had to drag it into her endorsement speech for Trump, where she referred to King as “a friend of mine… I thought.”
Mocking his decision to speak on MSNBC, Palin went on to say:
Why would a good conservative guy like Steve King, from the heartland of America, want to say something that he knows isn’t true? Maybe he’s forgotten some of his heart in the heartland. He got a touch of that Potomac fever there in D.C.
Palin also said:
Maybe he’s been out in a cornfield too long huffing ethanol or something.
True to Palin form, she even tied up her retort to King by working in Trump’s slogan, stating that the only promise Trump made to her for her endorsement was to “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN,” and if you believe she didn’t get more than that Bipartisan Report has some choice real estate in Florida we’d love to sell you, or perhaps a nice condo on the moon is more your style?
