Barack Obama identifies the nomination of Sarah Palin as the reason we now have Donald Trump.

Obama said looking back on his presidency, a key moment was when Republican presidential candidate John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate, calling it a moment when “mainstream Republicans lost control of their party.”

The party had incorporated strains of nativism and populism into its electoral strategy, he said, but “Sarah Palin’s nomination suddenly brought that populist energy to the fore in the Republican Party and helped pave the way for President Trump’s presidency.”

This was said in an interview with Obama in Canada a day or two ago.

I think it’s significant because I believe it is the first time that Obama has identified that moment in 2008 as the tipping point for the GOP. 

Of course, others have been identifying Sarah Palin is the catalyst for the end times for quite a while, and I started saying right after McCain lost the election, but Obama has remained relatively quiet on this topic. 

So now I think we can say with absolute certainty that without Sarah Palin we would never have had a Donald Trump. 

You might be wondering how Palin feels about this but she is really too busy firing guns out of front doors in Texas to respond. 

Once again for uninitiated Sarah Palin really does not know shit about guns, and this is just performance art for Instagram.

    In the book Gone Girl, the main character describes herself as a cool girl who knows what men want. She plays this game till she gets her man then she turns batshit crazy. This reminds me of Sarah. Yeah, so obviously posing, that poser. Surprised she isn’t standing there in her red, white and blue bikini. Probably doesn’t want anyone to see her stretch marks from the time she had Trig, aye?

    Got off topic. That woman is sickening. She looks like a witch in the pic above. I am glad someone is finally saying that the GOP has been offtrack since Palin. But I think they were planning a revolt way before then. I live in Fairbanks, and there’s this doctor who had crazy Let’s get America back again pamphlets in this waiting room. I think shit was in the air back then. Then came the Tea Party and Ted Cruzes ugo face. Sarah was just part of the church goin group that were already saying and believing fascist shit, and McCain’s people gave her a platform. And that was a good reason for McCain never to be president. Either he was too nice to call the crazies out or he was just oblivious. But yes, Sarah was the attractive, prick teaser that turned on the crazies in our country and now we can’t fucking turn it off.

    Don’t worry Gryphen; us Canadians call it as we see it – this needed to be said! President Obama (yes, the REAL President; not the fuckin’ moron fat dunce!!) knows that Canadians are well-versed in matters to our south; that is why he stated this fact, which is common knowledge here in the IM community!! No wonder the wasilla village idiot is doomed to a paltry existence of peddling poop-tea!!

  4. Anon March 7, 2019 at 5:20 pm

    Ugh. Although what Obama said is true, I wish he hadn’t given her any publicity. She craves attention like we crave air. I’d like to never hear the name Sarah Palin again. As long as I’m wishing, I’d also like to never hear “Trump” again, too.

    Perfect thumbnail pic, Gryph, there she is in all her ‘glory with her bip-bop-powie pose when everyone and their dog knows what a coward she is. Look at the crap she caused afterward out of spite, in the name of the LAWD mind you, then she runs and watches the fallout. Her fucked up family, oh yeah, selling point.. Baby in the corner again trying to keep herself relevant. She’s not invited anywhere anymore but still trying to convince the faithful that she’s all that and more. It is to LAUGH.

    O/T trump tax scam.. well gang I just finished my income taxes and what a joke.. all they did was cut and paste sections of the old 1040 into a bunch of new schedules with the promise that it would be easier. Like the we couldn’t just skip over the sections we didn’t need.

    Last year the 1040: ONE page (both sides), this year.. 4-5 pages … so all they did was get eliminate of the paperwork reduction act… killing more trees or trump has stock in paper companies.

    • Beaglemom March 8, 2019 at 4:31 am

      Another part of “all they did” was give millionaires and billionaires a huge windfall. The next phase of the new tax law kicks in after the 2020 elections and the final part of the doozy kicks in after the 2026 election. The law was designed to hurt ordinary people the most but after election years so the GOP keeps getting elected. And the rich keep getting richer while the ordinary people keep getting poorer. That’s GOP economics and tax policy stated in a nutshell.

        I feel “badly” for my Drumpf humping relatives because my taxes were cut in half. We were affected by the previous AMT and instead of cutting a check for 36k, we cut a check for 18k. My husband makes a very good salary and I contribute a decent salary as well. All my relatives are screwed and owe more taxes. Reality check for them. We hated cutting the big checks every year, but we did it and we planned for it. This year is nice! l However, I still don’t think the realization that most people did not get a tax break is going to piss people off enough. I hope it does.

        • Anonymous March 8, 2019 at 9:22 am

          That tax cut was meant for people that earned a “decent or very good salary” along with all the other Fat Cats.
          Those less fortunate who struggle get fucked, again. No extra money for those paupers.

    One would think, if she had any gray matter left, she’d realize she’s only making herself out to be a bigger fool than she already is.

    Hahahaha. If she actually fired that thing, she’d have a black eye from the sight and a bruised shoulder. Please $arah – do fire it/

  14. Whatevs March 7, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    $arah’s so stupid and craves attention sooooo bad, she reposted it on her insta.

  15. puck March 7, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    i think $arah was picked out of a hat by repubs who thought women would vote for her. once again, the republicans know NOTHING about women. she really dumbed down the repubs-i sure most wish they never heard of her or trump.

    Who dresses like that? Does she only shop at strip malls? She even dressed like that before trying to kill Shailey and Gabby.

  21. nanna March 7, 2019 at 10:38 pm

    I’d be worrying about which eye Sarah uses to shoot with, they both look in different directions.

    You would think that Sarah would be over the moon to think that anyone gave her credit for Trump. But she knows Trump has zero respect for her and thinks her family are losers and she is crazy- and the whole country knows he doesn’t want her around. So there’s that.

    I think the Presidency of Barack Obama ultimately resulted in Trump’s election, as a backlash against the progressive and radical change Obama represented. Trump is the anti-Obama.

    For eight years, we were lucky enough to have a brilliant, highly-educated, dedicated leader of great integrity and dignity. He also happened to be black. First Lady Michelle Obama shared the same qualities. Plus, both were tall, strikingly good-looking, and high achievers in their own right, and were downright intimidating to some people. A large segment of the population were terrified by this seeming paradigm shift, unable to identify with President Obama, and seeking someone as different from him as possible. Trump was happy to step in to fill that void in their narrow minds. Trump was like them–white, bigoted, nationalistic, and inarticulate. They would feel safe with him in charge, and taking charge was something he preened himself on. Even after two years of disgrace and failure, many still cheer him and are able to ignore his blatant lies.

    Conservatives, who have been shown by fMRI testing to feel easily threatened by anything different or unfamiliar, flocked to Trump because they understood him. They identified with his bluster, his militaristic jingoism, birtherism, sexism, crude self-presentation, and shameless boasting. Trump the conman, the birther, the huckster, the bully, noticed this and capitalized on it.

    Look at how quickly the meaningless MAGA logo caught on. Why did America need to be made “great again”? Because it lost greatness when it was led by President Obama, in the view of those who would later become rabid Trump supporters.

    Trump was elected because he appealed to voters who felt disenfranchised under the Obama administrations, finding themselves living in a nation which had a non-white leader. Sarah Palin wasn’t important enough to have that kind of impact.. She was a flash-in-the-pan who became quickly marginalized and forgotten by most people.

    Well well, lookie here. Seems Sarah has found another sex trafficker to hang out with along with Kraft, Donnie Jr. and the Red Don. I guess Toad wasn’t pulling in enough $$ for this fraudulent bitch anymore or perhaps she was just unwittingly picking up Toad after he banged a sex slave. Either way it’s bad optics

    Did anyone else think it was really odd that she publicly admitted on Instagram that she loves going down to Texas to chat with all the cowboys? Not, cowgirls AND cowboys… I get the feeling she won’t be married much longer.

  30. Shetland March 8, 2019 at 3:28 pm

    Steve Schmidt said Sarah Palin was only a symptom, not the cause of the GOP lunacy that resulted in Trump’s presidency. He thinks people who believe otherwise have missed that point.

  31. Shetland March 8, 2019 at 3:34 pm

    Also, Obama expressed that opinion about Palin ushering in Trump’s presidency in 2016, not just recently.I think Steve Schmidt was correct in saying she was only a symptom, not the cause.

    • Anonymous March 9, 2019 at 9:58 am

      Why should we give a shit about what ol’ Stevie says. He knew abou the faked pregnancy and did not blow a whistle. If Palin was a “symptom” well, everyone who enabled her were the fucking disease carriers.
