Trump supporter Sarah Palin went on CNN and completely undercut his attempt to use Bill Clinton’s infidelity against Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Transcript via CNN’s State Of The Union:
TAPPER: This weekend, Donald Trump really went after Hillary Clinton for her husband, Bill Clinton’s infidelities. Take a listen.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
TRUMP: Bill Clinton was the worst in history, and I have to listen to her talking about it? And just remember this. She was an unbelievably nasty, mean enabler, and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
TAPPER: What do you think of that line of attack?
PALIN: Well, you know, I think a lot of people may be obsessed with a public figure’s personal life, and they’re going to get all entangled in, you know, past indiscretions or whatever.
But I think, for the most part, Americans are concerned about things like who will be able to appoint the next Supreme Court justices, which will affect an entire generation coming up. I think that’s what people are concerned about, much more so than Bill Clinton’s obvious indiscretions, and Donald Trump having been divorced a couple of times, but owning up to it.
Things like that, at least for people like me, eh, I just think that’s like the least of our worries right now.
Trump is making a big effort to use Bill Clinton’s sex scandal in the 2016 campaign, and Sarah Palin reaction was eh, that doesn’t matter. With friends like Sarah Palin, Donald Trump doesn’t need enemies.
Even Trump’s own supporters really don’t support him. One can see Palin’s answer being used in Clinton campaign ads all across the country if Trump tries to use ancient and irrelevant history against Hillary Clinton.
Trump’s own surrogates are sabotaging his campaign, as the Donald Trump and Island of Misfit Conservative Toys are driving the Republican Party off of the cliff.
