Sarah Palin Is Attacking Mitt Romney Because Romney Was Mean To Donald Trump


 

Donald Trump, Don’t Take the BaitThe “machine’s” deception and nonsensical attack on Trump isn’t really an attack on the candidate, it’s an attack on conscientious, hardworking, patriotic Americans who know we need a revolution to stop the complicit politicians who are fundamentally transforming America. We found the revolutionary. Donald Trump is the shock the Permanent Political Class needs to wake them up… to destroy their selfish cabal… to respect the will of the people… to make America safe and solvent… to make America great again. Don’t take the bait, Mr. Trump. It’s not about you. It’s about us. And we’ve got your back. – Sarah Palin https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zSpQaqoTnnMhttp://theconservativetreehouse.com/

Since receiving her endorsement prior to the Iowa caucus, the Donald Trump campaign has kept its Sarah Palin card close to the vest, but Mitt Romney’s Thursday morning rebuke of the GOP front-runner spurred Palin to return fire.

The video, posted to Palin’s Facebook page, calls into question Romney’s credentials as a “great conservative.”

“The ‘machine’s’ deception and nonsensical attack on Trump isn’t really an attack on the candidate,” Palin wrote under the Facebook video, “it’s an attack on conscientious, hardworking, patriotic Americans who know we need a revolution to stop the complicit politicians who are fundamentally transforming America. We found the revolutionary. Donald Trump is the shock the Permanent Political Class needs to wake them up…to destroy their selfish cabal…to respect the will of the people…to make America safe and solvent…to make America great again.”

“Don’t take the bait, Mr. Trump. It’s not about you. It’s about us. And we’ve got your back.”

DOES IT FEEL LIKE POLITICS IS AT A BREAKING POINT?

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
