This interview was before Trump's recent remarks about keeping Muslims out of the country, but I am not at all certain that Palin's opinion about his "butt kicking" has changed any.
Palin also addresses the upcoming birth of "Sailor" (Poor kid.) and suggests that she expects to spend Christmas with Bristol who will be in labor. (So Jesus is coming back as a female?)
At one point Palin gives Donald Trump yet another pass for mocking that disabled reporter, which is especially hypocritical since she recently had her ghostwriter type up this statement about an upcoming "docu-series" on Down syndrome from A&E:
I love this so much! My kids sent me clips of this upcoming show while I'm here on the road for my book tour. It brought tears to my eyes, in a good way! The kids were so happy to see this, too. They had shown Trig the show's clips, trying to discern if his reaction reflected any recognition of his beautiful brothers and sisters beautifully showcased on his iPad screen. (Trig isn't very verbal, but signed to his siblings that he was very irritated they'd interrupted his Nat Geo baby animals documentary at the time, and demanded they just turn it back on. So, yeah... that.)
Pop culture now gets another powerful look at how valuable every innocent life is. I'm so glad to see the celebration and tolerance of beautiful people who may look "different" than what societal standards want to tell us is perfect or even acceptable.
When I discovered very early on in my pregnancy that my son Trig had an extra chromosome, that he was a child with Down syndrome, it rocked my world. I was scared of the unknown. But, as I write in my devotional, Sweet Freedom, with this situation and with all the fears and trials life may hit us with, I knew I could I desperately call out to God for Truth in the situation. God tells us in the Psalms that He knits us together in the womb, and that we are 'fearfully and wonderfully made.' God say, "I've got this!"
The minute Trig was born, God answered my prayers with changed eyes to be able to see my son as a gorgeous perfect gift for the Palins. And He exchanged my fear with a heart full of a curious, excited anticipation for what all Trig would be teaching us.
I'm so happy to have him; so blessed to be gifted a really cool, unique, fun, challenging, loving, sometimes exhausting, very special little guy who's changed our lives for the better! God values the sanctity of every innocent life, no matter how small, no matter how many chromosomes.
A show like this will strive to influence pop culture so more people may embrace all of God's creation. If we support these efforts, the show's message and meaning will resonate and succeed in helping make the world a better place.
And not to rub it in, but viewers are going to see that those of us who have loved ones with special needs like Down syndrome will see why I say, “We won! For, my kid has more chromosomes than your kid!”
So much BS, so little time.
