Late Senator John McCain (AZ) apparently regretted choosing Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate in 2008. Why he made that known publicly makes little sense, considering McCain was going to lose the ‘08 race unless his VP was Barack Obama himself.
Even wilder is that Palin was not invited to McCain’s funeral.
Now, the former governor of Alaska is breaking her silence.
From Daily Wire:
In an appearance on “Good Morning Britain” on Monday, the former Alaska governor said the funeral snub felt like a “gut punch.”
Palin said, “I was kind of surprised to be publicly disinvited to the funeral. I think that was an unnecessary step. [The McCain family] didn’t have to embarrass me and embarrass others. And it wasn’t just me, it was other good people from our campaign back in 2008 who were very, very loyal to Sen. McCain, and worked with him and for him for many years, and they weren’t invited to the funeral.”
Who does Palin think disinvited her?
Palin noted, “My guess is, it came from Cindy. She is very protective of John’s memory and legacy. She’s also a grieving widow. I think she wants to get through this as best she can. Donald Trump and Sarah Palin were not served official notice outright. I want to make that clear. It wasn’t a no-trespass order. They won’t be turned away by guards if they show up at the funeral.”
Hollywood’s Spike Lee is one of President Trump’s biggest celebrity critics. After winning an award for his film “BlackKklansman” at the Oscars on Sunday night, Lee decided to use part of his acceptance speech to call out POTUS.
“The View’s” Meghan McCain defended Lee for ripping into Trump after he sent a tweet blasting the activist director. She referred to 45 as a “reality show president,” an obvious dig at his past life as host of “The Apprentice.”
Lee: “When we regain our humanity it will be a powerful moment.”
Lee: “The 2020 election is around the corner — let’s all mobilize and be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate.”
Trump’s message for Spike:
Be nice if Spike Lee could read his notes, or better yet not have to use notes at all, when doing his racist hit on your President, who has done more for African Americans (Criminal Justice Reform, Lowest Unemployment numbers in History, Tax Cuts,etc.) than almost any other Pres!
