Why is it that half-term quitter Sarah Palin feels the need to stick her hypocritical nose into situations which don’t involve her in the least? Is it a desperate attempt to remain relevant? Or is it a cry for help?
The latest rhubarb Palin has tried to stir up involves former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who you may recall refused to stand for the playing of the national anthem before football games as a protest against police violence directed at African-Americans. Instead, Kaepernick took one knee in a kind of kneeling position.
But Kaepernick also recently made a $50,000 donation to Meals on Wheels, a vital program which would be cut in Donald Trump’s proposed federal budget. Kaepernick didn’t have to do this, and it’s hard to criticize a person who gives out of their own pocket to help others.
However, that didn’t stop Palin from linking to an article which insinuated that Kaepernick’s generosity was nothing more than a political stunt and adding this snide comment:
“And he wonders why he can’t find a job.”
It didn’t take long for karma–in the form of Twitter users–to pay a visit to the currently unemployed Palin:
if you tweet about Colin Kaepernick at 12:35 AM you must not have a job either.

Click baiting her own Facebook for 5 retweets and 16 likes. Such a maverick.

And your job is writing tweets for a professional "former politician." Well done.

Hey, Sarah, how about doing us all a huge favor and disappearing for the next 30 years or so. We’ll let you know when you should return. Until then, STFU!
