Sarah Palin came from God knows where to only be quickly shut down after exercising her comfortable position of putting her foot in her mouth.
As we all painfully recall, Palin rose to national prominence as the Vice President pick of former Republican Senator and presidential candidate John McCain in the 2008 election. Palin, the former Governor of Alaska, who claimed she could see Russia from her house (among many other things), took to Twitter moments after it was announced that Abrams would deliver the Democratic response after Trump’s State of the Union address.
Palin was one of the many ruffled critics who questioned why Abrams was selected after Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer announced the news on Tuesday.
In a now deleted post, Palin retweeted an article with the headline, “Chuck Schumer Wants A LITERAL LOSER To Deliver The Democratic SOTU Response,” which populated in her status message with a link to the article. But the damage was already done and social media soon caught on.
Abrams continues to rise as a key player in the Democratic Party. After her loss to Republican Brian Kemp during the 2018 gubernatorial race, Abrams has remained dedicated to her progressive message, which includes an end to voter suppression and inclusivity.
Twitter cried out a collective “You said what to who?!!!” and reminded Palin that it literally costs nothing to shut up. And sis, come back with some criticism after you’ve run and SUCCESSFULLY WON a political campaign of your own.
