“Yeah, good to be here. Thawed out and little Alaskas. Literally… thawed out. Just before I got on a flight to get out here, he’s out ice fishing on our frozen lake and my husband’s out snow machinin’ and thank you guys for your prayers for my husband who is recovering right now in ICU after a little wreck on a snow machine. So thank you. Big wreck. Thank you. But, you know, when real life happens, right? When somebody is sick in your family, there’s an accident that happens, all these challenges, these struggles in your business, in your family, with your finances, tryin’ to get your kids to be able to afford to go to college, all these real life issues that happen, it really puts things into perspective, doesn’t it? And doesn’t it make you so appreciate your time – time is our most valuable resource. It makes me appreciate the time that we that have to spend in doing something so worthy. And that’s to get Donald J. Trump elected president. And what we don’t have time for is all that petty punk-ass little thuggery stuff that’s been going on with those quote-unquote protesters who are doing nothing but wasting your time and trying to take away your first amendment rights, your rights to assemble peacefully. And the media being on the thugs’ side — what the heck are you guys thinking, media? It doesn’t make sense! Well, you all get it. I think the media and too many other candidates are underestimating the wisdom of the people. You all are smart, you're energized, you're optimistic, you're positive and that’s why you’re here today and I thank you for spending your time here today, Because it is time, we have all recognized the majority of Americans have recognized Republicans, Independents, good old blue dog Reagan Democrats out there — we have all recognized, we need a revolution. It is time to get rid of the status quo. The status quo has to go, right? We have needed a revolution, and we found our revolutionary. Donald Trump is that revolutionary!
This so reminds me of her speech pattern when she resigned in 2009. The breathlessness, the anger, the high pitched voice, the crazed slogans tossed in willy-nilly. This is how Palin acts when she is angered or stressed.
According to local reports the accident happened at around 8:00 PM last night:
Medics received a page around 8 p.m. last night and and found a seriously injured snowmachiner. He was at a residence on Talkeetna Spur Road, according to borough spokeswoman Patty Sullivan. She was not sure exactly where the snowmachine crash took place.
Medics transported the injured snowmachiner to Mat-Su hospital by ambulance.
That would have literally been right after Bristol posted this:
My sources say that Tripp is fine so don't worry about him.
I guess perhaps Palin did not feel that it was necessary to rush back home because Todd's injuries are really not that bad. (Even though he has broken ribs and is scheduled for surgery.)
And obviously the injuries were not bad enough to keep Donald Trump from joking about them.
Still these are the Palins so they are going to have to milk if for everything that they can.

Todd is our rock... toughest guy I know. Thank you for your prayers as he recovers following a snowmachine accident last night. You know, your prayers have meant so much to our family over the years and I've not thanked you enough for providing us that shield of faith. God bless you, too!
As any adventurous Alaskan knows, while you may be down, you're never out. I remember Chris Kyle summed up Todd best - "He's Rambo. Straight up Rambo!" On the cross country flights taking me back home now, I'm thinking of all of you, and sincerely appreciating your support.
It was an honor to be with so many patriotic Floridians the past two days; you remind me that when "life happens" and we face challenges as individuals and a nation, it's the strength in unity and a strong faith that let us overcome. Stay strong! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Yeah, he's Rambo. Sure.
A lot of you have been asking if Todd had been drinking, obviously we do not have any information on that one way or the other yet.
However from past reporting by Joe McGinniss, and according to my own sources, I can tell you that those cabins are where the Palins go to let their hair down, and in the past there has been significant drinking and drug use on the premises.
I would hope that since Trig, Tripp, and Sailor were in attendance that such was not the case this time, but remember these ARE the Palins.
