Sarah Palin and Donald Trump sat down for an interview together recently, and the results were a lot of compliments, which left many viewers wondering if the two of them will end up as running mates.
Palin interviewed Trump for her show, On Point, on the One America News Network, and the sit-down was so anticipated that the network’s website crashed before the show even aired due to a barrage of viewers. It’s hard to say whether they were disappointed or gratified, as it all depends on what the expected outcome was. For the most part, the interview was about hearing Trump’s side regarding his various “feuds,” and his responses to other lines of questioning.
When Sarah Palin asked Trump about his recent fiery exchange with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos regarding his stance on immigration laws, he said he felt he was in the right, and the press agreed with him.
“You schooled that radical activist, and it was the right thing to do, because I don’t think he’s going to pull that again. Where do you get your guts for that kind of necessary confrontation?” Palin asked, according to Yahoo.
“Frankly, Sarah, the press was pretty good to me on that — I mean, they agreed with what I did,” Trump said.
“You’re pretty gracious when it comes to treating the press the way that sometimes they’re not gonna treat us conservatives,” Palin responded.
Palin has long been an outspoken fan of Trump’s, and he himself has reportedly mentioned her name when it comes to finding a running mate in the presidential election. The interview did nothing to quiet the rumors that they’ll team up, with Trump expressing his admiration of Sarah several times.
“If you look at what’s happening with this country, it’s so sad. You’ve pointed it out for years. I have to tell you, you’re a terrific person,” Trump said.
As many will remember, having an endorsement from Sarah Palin helped Ted Cruz land a nom in the 2012 Texas Republican Senate primary, and it’s certainly not hurting Trump. As Palin said, he’s “crushing it” in the polls, even despite several public feuds with the likes of Rosie O’Donnell, Megyn Kelly, and Jorge Ramos.
“I’ve said it since the day he made the sacrifice to hit the campaign trail: Voters crave the anti-status-quo politician. They want results. They need a fighter. They need someone to fire all those political correct police,” Sarah Palin said of Trump.
