Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) said that former President Obama is a “purveyor of untruths.”
Obama wrote in his new memoir, “A Promised Land,” that the late Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) selection of Palin as his running mate in 2008 ushered in a shift in the Republican Party that McCain himself “abhorred.”
“It seemed as if the dark spirits that had long been lurking on the edges of the modern Republican Party — xenophobia, anti intellectualism, paranoid conspiracy theories, an antipathy toward Black and brown folks — were finding their way to center stage,” he wrote.
During an interview on Fox News’s “Hannity” on Monday, host Sean Hannity read from the excerpt and asked Palin to respond.
“There’s proof after proof after proof that he is a purveyor of untruths,” Palin told Hannity. “Our country has to love truth. We have to be seekers of truth. We have to be willing to follow truth. And there are so many untruths that Barack Obama is leading people to still.”
Palin said that Obama, as one of the leading voices in the Democratic Party, is still leading many people in America toward “untruths.”
Did anybody else notice that the ring light reflected in Palin’s glasses kind of made her look like she was possessed? Or was that just me?
It is a good thing that irony is already dead or else Palin would have just killed it.
Obama’s description of Palin in his book was quite accurate, thought I would argue a little too kind.
She was absolutely the harbinger of the uptick in nativism, rampant racism, and xenophobia in this country.
She provided a face and a voice to the worst elements of our country and empowered them to slither out of the woodwork and help choose the worst president in American history.
She may not like the labels, but let’s face it she could not be happier that Obama mentioned her in her book so that she would once again bathe in the limelight.
Or is that ring light?
