The woman who spoke in a salad of incoherent sentences trying to promote Donald Trump during the Iowa primaries, Sarah Palin, has returned. The former half-term governor of Alaska was Senator John McCain’ (R-AZ) vice-presidential candidate after the GOP refused him his preferred choice, Joe Lieberman (I-CT). What Palin is up to now is downright scary.
Palin went on to become a reality show star after McCain lost to President Barack Obama in 2008. Yet, she never strayed too far from politics. Recently the 54-year-old politician starred as the keynote speaker during a Republican fundraiser for Trump at Mar-a-Lago.
Given the turnover rate in the White House, she may snag a job as chief of staff, EPA cabinet member, or even as Trump’s 2020 campaign VP partner.
Palin recently joined Fox News’ Life, Liberty, and Levin for an interview. When the show’s host, Mark Levin, asked whether she was glad she ran with McCain, she replied:
‘I would do it again in a heartbeat. I would have push back harder on some of those who were trying to mold me into something that I was not during the campaign. I would’ve pushed back and gotten more truth out there, but heck yes.’

The former governor said that McCain “probably” chose her for “political, practical reasons.”
‘He probably knew they needed someone younger, needed a female and needed a true conservative to balance everything else out and they were smart enough to have chosen someone with a lot of administrative experience. That was my career, it was in administration.’
Palin said that she was surprised that McCain’s campaign did not do a better job of defending her against the media, especially when she said Russia was visible from Alaska.
‘I was surprised because in Alaska, as I mentioned, my ratings were very high, things were going well in the court of public opinion, so I was mostly shocked that the campaign itself didn’t defend against a lot of the lies that were being spewed during the campaign. Once the bell is rung, it’s hard to unring.’
