Sarah Palin took to Twitter to congratulate Donald Trump for dumping his campaign manager/Russian spy.

Courtesy of Politico: 

Sarah Palin hailed the resignation of Paul Manafort as Donald Trump's campaign chairman Friday, tossing along some emoji-inspired shade in the direction of Manafort. 

"Good for Trump; the WIMPY thing for a boss to do is NOT can someone when it just isn't working out. It's all about accountability," Palin tweeted, subsequently including emojis for the flags of the Russian Federation and the United States. 

"It's all about accountability."

Yes and as we know Palin was so into accountability that she quit her job before anybody could hold HER accountable for the things she did while Governor of Alaska.

It looks like somebody is still kissing orange ass in the hopes that even though he stopped returning her calls that somewhere down the line is job for Palin with the Trump cable news company that many people believe is his endgame:  

Trump is indeed considering creating his own media business, built on the audience that has supported him thus far in his bid to become the next president of the United States. According to several people briefed on the discussions, the presumptive Republican nominee is examining the opportunity presented by the “audience” currently supporting him. He has also discussed the possibility of launching a “mini-media conglomerate” outside of his existing TV-production business, Trump Productions LLC. He has, according to one of these people, enlisted the consultation of his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who owns the The New York Observer. Trump’s rationale, according to this person, is that, “win or lose, we are onto something here. We’ve triggered a base of the population that hasn’t had a voice in a long time.”

He'll probably hire Roger Ailes to run it so that Palin can finally get that sexual harassment that she seems to have missed her first time around.

    Ailes won't accept the job. One time of being sexually harassed by Sarah Palin was one time too many even for him.

    Palin's name was mentioned in a Daily Banter article about Trump's 49 seconds of "helping" flood victims in Baton Rouge. Trump unloaded packages of Play-Doh from a truck. The article implied that Palin would probably eat the Play-Doh.

      Whether it's GUN or TRUMP, my prediction is coming true: SP's next (and last) big score will be as an e-televangelist, with her own show. "AAAAH have sinned! Ahhh have SINNED!!" Esp if it turns out that the hoax or any of the other of her sins is on the verge of exposure. She can preempt that AND make it pay if she starts the new network off with a confessional show, but of course she will have to actually confess to some of it. However, with her word salad, this could take awhile.

      Not the most appealing-sounding gig, but with a big $ offer from Trump (which he could stiff her on, he is so experienced with that ploy), an offer too big to refuse now that she is strapped, it all comes together.

      The racist old white guys will watch, and she hopes that other demographics will too. I might, or I might catch it in some more concise spin-doctor's column the next day. Or maybe IM will watch and give us a rundown in 10 words or less.

      Anyway: sounds like a plan to me.

  9. Squawkerella probably blames Manafort for her not being permitted around the campaign but kept her yap shut in hopes of someday being allowed once more to grift off of the campaign.

    Now that he's gone, she can suck up to Trump for getting rid of him (and all his terrible ideas, hint, hint, pleeeease, Donny!)

    Her disco ball sweater routine and a couple of forgettable appearances elsewhere were her last chance to grab onto some sort of national position so I see her tweet as one last flailing act of desperation, hooping Trump will notice her again.

    I had NPR on this AM, and they chatted with a woman in a shelter. She was wailing about Obama not being there right after it happened. They couldn't find anyone who knew that the Governor requested NO visits for photo ops'? Or who knew that FEMA is on the ground and helping already, and that funds have been released for the people? Why is the media so quick to belittle everything, and slow to give any credit at all to this wonderful administration?

      I agree with you, Anon at 6:49 am. My husband heard that on the radio too and asked me (?) why President Obama hadn't gone to Louisiana by now. I told him what I had read: the governor did not want visiting officials until the recovery phase had began because too many resources were needed for security that are now being used to help people in need. He also said that President Obama had done everything the state needed to have done and that they had been talking on a daily basis. NPR should have immediately followed the person's complaint with the fact. But facts don't matter in media news anymore. In addition NPR went over to the "darkish" side when Congress started cutting their money years ago.

    Is Dr. Jack Me Hoff a wimpy boss who let Bristol takeoff to do DWTS, then DWTS Allstars, then to do Life's A Tripp, then to do Wife Swap, then to do her and her mom's book tours? Then Bristol bought a house and moved to Arizona and then came back and went back to work for Dr. Jack Me Hoff, then Bristol moved to Kentucky and after Duhkota dumped her, Bristol moved back to Wasilla and Dr. Jack Me Hoff hired her again. Not sure Bristol is working now (like most of her family).

    Some say the only reason Bristol got that job and was rehired, rehired again, rehired again, etc is because the doctor has some type of relationship with Sarah Palin.
