Double Dunces: Palin And Trump Complain About Media’s ‘Gotcha Questions’ (Video)

When you put Sarah Palin and Donald Trump on the same TV screen, what do you get? Twice the ignorance and ego for the price of one. Double the dunces in one setting.

Witness what happened last night when Palin interviewed the Donald and they both began to whine about how unfair the media has been to them. Palin started the whinefest by mentioning how unfair she thought a reporter’s questions about Trump’s favorite Bible verse were:

“I listened to that going, ‘Do they ask Hillary that? What does it have to do with running for the office of the presidency? Is it anybody’s business? These personal ‘gotcha’ questions, really trying to get you, us, anybody running for office off game. How are you finding that, and finding a technique to put them in their place so that the American public isn’t wasting their time and actually get to hear what’s important via candidates’ message?”

Trump, no doubt glad to finally be interviewed by a person of meager intellectual ability, much like himself, replied:

“You saw that. I love the Bible, and I’m Protestant, I’m Presbyterian. And they were hitting me with different questions, one right after the other. I don’t know if it’s ‘gotcha questions,’ it probably is. And then they said, ‘What’s your favorite verse?’ You know, that’s a very personal thing. I don’t like giving that out to people that you hardly know. Frankly, I don’t know if they’re fair questions, or not fair questions, but there are certain things that you, myself and a lot of other people like to be personal.”

First of all, Sarah and Donald, perhaps if you weren’t always spouting off about how religious you are and how much the Bible means to you, reporters would not feel the need to inquire as to what your favorite verses are.

And secondly, Ms. Palin, Hillary Clinton freely shared one of her favorite Bible verses–Corinthians 13–while meeting with a minister in South Carolina earlier this year.

Lastly, for Mr. Trump: You love to say that you’re a Presbyterian and that religion means so much to you, but Marble Collegiate Church, where you claim you attend services, says they don’t consider you to be an active member.

In other words, Sarah and Donald, you are what genuine people of faith call hypocrites.
