Sarah Palin knows the position she wants in a Donald Trump administration: Energy secretary.
"I think a lot about the Department of Energy, because energy is my baby: oil and gas and minerals, those things that God has dumped on this part of the Earth for mankind's use instead of us relying on unfriendly foreign nations," she told CNN's Jake Tapper in an interview that aired Sunday on "State of the Union."
But Palin, the GOP's 2008 vice presidential nominee, might be the first potential cabinet member to openly speak about dissolving their office.
"I'd get rid of (the Energy Department). And I'd let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people who are affected by the developments within their states. If I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job, but it would be ... really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge."
Get rid of the energy department, what a moron.
But that was not the dumbest thing that Palin said by any measure.
She actually defended the idea that Mt. Denali should continue to be called Mt. McKinley, the park being called Denali was good enough she said, and attacked the President for wasting the resources and time to come up here to "rename a mountain."
Palin also attacked Obama over his attention to climate change, and claimed that his data was flawed.
Palin also weighed in on the Bush/Trump Spanish language kerfuffle:
"Let's speak American."
Almost immediately afterward she claimed that the GOP was not racist:
" No because I can't think of any Republican I know who would have that in their heart. I think Republicans, and Independents, that is the party of tolerance. It certainly doesn't matter the color of your skin"
Yep, she actually said that.
Another part that really caught my attention was when Palin addressed the fact that Ohio was going to introduce legislation that would forbid women from ending a pregnancy due to their baby being diagnosed with Down syndrome.
"Hmm, do I think it should be legal for a mom to snuff out the life of her baby just because the child has one extra chromosome?"
Obviously Palin answered no to that, and then later Palin trotted out her Trig mythology:
"When I was pregnant and very early on, at twelve weeks, got the diagnosis that Trig would be born with Down syndrome, I know what moms go through when they are given that, at the time, to be honest with you, kind of devastating news. You know what, it makes your world stop spinning for a bit there, and there is some fear there in the unknown. Certainly there was some fear in my heart about..um...you know how in the world are we going to be able to handle the challenges up ahead?"
Well of course the answer to that last question is that she pawned the care of Trig off onto others, as she went ahead and lived her life as if he did not exist.
And as we all know this entire last statement is pure mooseshit, as we have already proven beyond any shadow of a doubt.
Well at least in my opinion.
By the way this might have been Palin's unofficial audition because according to NewsCorpse she is supposedly joining CNN for their election coverage.
Which if true finally answers that question as to who was impressed by her week long appearance on OANN?
