Sarah Palin Says AOC Is A ‘Fake Feminist’ And Gets Her A*s Handed To Her

We haven’t heard much from failed 2008 Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin, and that’s a blessing, because she rarely has anything valuable to say and is usually just trying to find a new way to grift a buck or two and remain semi-relevant as the world passes her by.

But the failed, half-term former governor of Alaska is back, and she’s decided that the new Texas anti-choice abortion legislation is a good thing and since she’s a “feminist,” she knows how women feel on the issue.

However, Palin made a very big mistake when she went on Fox News this week and commented on remarks that had been made by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) about the Texas abortion bill that was signed this week by Gov. Greg Abbott (R).

Specifically, Newsweek reports, AOC told Anderson Cooper of CNN that Abbott was “not familiar with a menstruating person’s body” and should not be regulating one.

That led Palin to retort:

“(AOC is) such a fake feminist that she would bring up an issue like this and try to use it to make some kind of political point.

“She’s so off base politically, but even off base in the analogy or whatever it is that she’s throwing out there. She’s milking the whole female thing, and as a real feminist, I’m embarrassed for her.”

AOC is a fake feminist but Sarah Palin is a real one? That’s kind of odd when you consider that the congresswoman is defending a woman’s right to make her own reproductive choices without government interference while Palin is cheerleading for old white men in Texas passing laws that would put Big Brother in every woman’s uterus.

That led Ocasio-Cortez to drop a video online in which she expertly trolls Palin by looking into the camera and asking:

“Does my existence make you mad? Does the fact that, yes, I am a mouthpiece for the people of New York’s 14th congressional district upset you? Well, I have help for you. Call 1-800-CRY-NOW. That’s 1-800-CRY-NOW.”

And that’s not all. AOC also set up a website that makes contributions for a purpose that’s certain to upset Palin:

That’s not only expert trolling, it’s putting your money where your mouth is. Well done, AOC!

Seth Meyers Schools Sarah Palin On Syrian Refugee Vetting Process

It’s pretty sad when a talk show host has to explain reality to someone in the political world, but when the person being schooled is Sarah Palin, it doesn’t exactly surprise anyone.

Such was the case last night when Palin appeared on “Late Night” with Seth Meyers and Palin wrongly proclaimed there was no screening process for Syrian refugees. Palin began by defending the 31 governors who said they would not accept refugees from the civil war in Syria in their states:

“Their message is not, we don’t want Syrian refugees. Their message is, what is the vetting process? How do we know that these are the innocents who are coming over and actually needing aid, and they’re not the bad guys infiltrating under the guise of refugee? And they want a vetting process, because we don’t have that from the top, we don’t have that at the federal level.”

Meyers told the former half-term Alaska governor that there is indeed a process, and he even tried to explain it to her:

“In order for any refugees to come in, it is, like, an 18- to 24-month process for them to get through. It starts at the UN, and then it comes through multiple government agencies here in the states. Is it maybe just that, at the core, I think there’s just a lack of trust across the board of the federal government? Do you think that’s what these governors are really saying, that ultimately anything the federal government tells them, they don’t trust?”

Palin, always a fan of any conspiracy theory she can fashion out of some rumor she has heard, replied that she never trusts the federal government:

“Well, I don’t trust what the federal government is telling us. But even you should not trust that the federal government is telling you about the 18- to 24-month vetting process is as legit as perhaps they’re trying to make the public believe, because truly, there is no way to filter out those that would want to do this country harm with the process that we see in place today. And that’s why it’s not just Republican governors, but Democrats, too, who are saying, wait a minute — somebody’s got to be the last line of defense here, so the states are taking on that authority.”

Meyers then asked the obvious question: Is there really any possible way to guarantee absolute safety in any country? And Palin tried to duck and weave around the question:

Then Meyers used the best line of the night:

“I think this idea that they’re coming here to infiltrate, I think that is fear-based. I do think they want to come here and enjoy the same things you and I are lucky enough to enjoy.”

The studio audience erupted into loud applause for what Meyers had just said, leaving Palin to timidly state:

“I do think most people want to come to America to enjoy what it is that we’ve been blessed with, I do, I do. It’s just unfortunate that we know, as we saw in Paris, there are some people who want to get to a country to do harm. But no, I agree with you — for the most part, people want to be here to enjoy that exceptionalism that we’re all blessed to enjoy.”

Sarah, you’re a freaking idiot. And the world would be a lot better off if you’d stay in Alaska, hunt moose, and stay off television.

GOP Whining Politics WTF?!

Sarah Palin’s Reaction To The CNBC Debate Is Pure Gibberish

She’s baaaack! Dear Sarah Palin has decided to make an official commentary on last week’s GOP debate which was hosted and broadcast on CNBC.

Taking to Facebook, Sister Sarah issued forth with one of her semi-intoxicated rants on the debate, but as is so often the case with Palin, what she really wanted to talk about was herself. Check this out:

“Finally it occurs to folks this idiotic practice of “throwing GOP candidates to the wolves”? Yeah. I’ve been there. I’m beyond crying you a river… beyond EVER claiming “victim status”… but for y’alls edification, I sure don’t remember all this GOP outrage and the establishment’s conscience leading to rescue attempts at THAT time. It’s sweet how life goes on anyway”

Hey, Sarah, it’s called punctuation. Look into it!

Then Palin pivots in an attempt to bring attention back to herself:

“Watch even the first five minutes of Steve Bannon’s ‘The Undefeated’ to get a clue.”

Guess who “The Undefeated” is a documentary about? Yep, Sarah Palin. Some people just have no shame at all. But she is far from finished:

“After having to sneak in my own personal phone calls to conservative media during the ’08 campaign (as Sean Hannity and Alaska’s own KWHL can attest) because the GOP machine chose instead to line up those liberal man-eater, out-of-context interviews (suspiciously, rarely were they aired live – always edited to fit the liberal reporters’ narrative)”

Hey, if you can’t stand life in the fishbowl, Sarah, then why choose to swim in that water? Oh, I know: Because you love, crave, and adore the attention. Because you are a narcissist!

Then she starts accusing others of her main fault: stupidity. See if this amazes you as much as it does me:

“…well, it was obvious that some highly paid campaign consultants (STILL suckering candidates in to hire them today!) were as smart as a box of rocks.”

Compared to Sarah Palin, a box of rocks is a member of Mensa.
