Trump Dumps Sarah Palin By Not Giving Her Speaking Slot At The Republican Convention

Donald Trump released his list of speakers for the Republican convention, and one name was notably missing. Despite the fact that she has been campaigning for him as a surrogate, Sarah Palin will not be speaking at the Republican convention.

Here is the list of speakers at Trump’s convention via a Trump press release:

The Trump convention contains the usual rogues gallery of the far right Republican Party, the congressional leadership of the party (McConnell, Ryan, McCarthy), no big sports stars (a.k.a. sports winners as Trump demanded), the failed tea party governors (Christie, Walker, Scott), and lots of Trump family.

However, the one name that is missing is Sarah Palin. The former half-term quitter governor of Alaska was expected to make her return to the Republican convention after her loud support throughout the primary of Trump. Plus, being that Trump was desperate for name figures to speak at his convention, Palin looked like a lock.

The fact that she remains left out of the convention demonstrates how the Republican Party is still exerting a degree of control over Trump. There was no Sarah Palin, Mike Tyson, or any of Trump’s other zany ideas were on the list released by the RNC.

The Republican Party wants America to forget that Sarah Palin was once their vice presidential nominee.

Palin has been dumped by Trump. The GOP can try to erase Sarah Palin, but the seeds she sowed in 2008 have grown into the nomination of Donald Trump.

Republicans are trying to forget, but the American people will always remember that living monument to Republican incompetence that is Sarah Palin
