Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska has spoken at a Donald Trump rally, endorsing the rogue Donald in his bid to become the next commander in chief.
The Tea Party’s darling and the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee says that the Donald can “kick ISIS’ ass!” Ms. Palin declared on stage at a Trump rally in Iowa tonight: “No more pussyfootin’ around!”
The Guardian reports:
In a brisk, occasionally disorganized speech that eschewed the use of teleprompters favored by certain White House occupants, the former half-term governor of Alaska and one-time vice presidential nominee declared that billionaire frontrunner Donald Trump should – and would – be the next president of the United States.
“Are you ready to make America great again?!” Palin asked the rambunctious crowd in Ames, Iowa. “Are you ready to stump for Trump? I’m here to support the next president of the United States: Donald Trump.”

Palin, a huge figurehead in the American conservative movement, described Trump as a devoted conservative, a family man, and a staunch defender of American military.
“No more pussyfootin’ around!” she declared. “Our troops deserve the best! You deserve the best!”
Citing the support of “teachers and teamsters,” “cops and cooks,” “rock ‘n’ rollers and holy rollers,” Palin said that despite the presence in the race of “some friends who are running” – that would be Texas senator Ted Cruz, whose rise to the US senate was helped in large part by Palin’s endorsement in 2012 – “I am here because I, like you, know that it is now or never. I am in it to win it because I believe in America.”
Palin mocked the notion that Trump isn’t conservative enough to win the support of Republican voters, at one point calling out the Republican party establishment for being composed of hypocrites and “sell-outs.”
“He’s been going rogue left and right,” Palin said of Trump. “That’s why he’s doing so well! He’s been able to tear the veil off of this idea of the system.“
At one point, Palin winkingly acknowledging the assembled reporters in the back of the room, whose heads, she observed with a twirl of her index finger, were spinning. “Heads are spinnin’! Media heads are spinnin’!” she said with delight.
“This is gonna be. So. Much. Fun.”
