The American people find themselves in a reality which is more bizarre than an episode of the Twilight Zone. Donald Trump is soon to be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States, and he’s filling his cabinet with a who’s who of the worst possible picks in American society. Topping the list of Trump’s dubious choices is his possible selection of failed vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin for the position of Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Considering that Palin has zero military experience, she seems like the perfect person to select for the job.
A representative of Palin and a member of Trump’s transition team confirmed to ABC.com that Palin is “under consideration.” According to the Palin aide, Palin had a conversation with the Trump team and said, “I feel as though the megaphone I have been provided can be used in a productive and positive way to help those desperately in need.” The megaphone Palin speaks of is her celebrity as a reality television personality, having been the subject of numerous failed programs. This was after Palin became one of five U.S. governors in American history to resign during their first term, and she did so because she was facing 15 ethical charges.
Palin being on Trump’s shortlist makes sense as she was one of the first to endorse his candidacy, and she did so loudly and proudly without wavering in the face of his numerous disgusting sexual scandals. She is also close with Trump’s top adviser, the white supremacist enabling Steve Bannon, who made a movie about Sarah Palin’s life called “The Undefeated.” Surprisingly, the film flopped and only made $116,000.
It is also very likely Trump’s consideration is due to Palin making excuses for her son Track, a noted domestic abuser who beat up his own wife. Palin, staying true to form, blamed her son’s actions of brutally assaulting a woman on President Obama because on top of being a Kenyan Muslim Communist sympathizer, Obama is also capable of telepathy to control the thoughts of others.
Indeed, Palin and Trump are two peas in the proverbial pod. Both advocate for unilaterally attacking other countries, both hate Muslims, and both are terribly unqualified for their positions. Palin already proved this to be true, and Trump soon will. What remains to be seen is if Trump will give Palin a second chance at embarrassing herself.
