Today Show blindsides Sarah Palin with PTSD, family questions, ditching the Iowa caucus talk

The Today Show took the Sarah Palin interview off the rails this morning as the former Alaska governor was asked about personal family issues etc… and responded with shock stating that “You guys brought me here to talk about Iowa politics and the caucus tonight, not to talk about my kids. That was a promise. As things go in the world of media, you don’t always keep your promises, evidently.”

The fuming Palin sat down with Today Show anchor Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer to discuss the Iowa caucus, support for Donald Trump, saying that “I believe that he will win Iowa..Iowa voters, too, are ready for restoration to constitutional government again, and Donald Trump is the one that can do this.”

Palin had previously supported Trump’s closest rival in the polls, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, during his election to Congress, but said it “wasn’t [a] tough” decision to throw her weight behind Trump, a political novice, for the GOP nomination.

“I support (Cruz) being there in the Senate to be a fighter for the American people for our will. I want to keep him in the Senate, and I want Donald Trump to be our president,” she said.

Palin also addressed whether Trump was a “true conservative” despite the fact that he’s given generously to Democratic candidates, including Hillary Clinton, in the past.

“You compare him to someone like Ronald Reagan, who…at one point, he was a registered Democrat even, and then he saw the light,” Palin said. “I am so glad that Donald Trump is on our side when it comes to the political spectrum. We should celebrate that he has come over on the right side.”

The interview made a strong detour when Guthrie asked: “I want to ask you about something you mentioned on the campaign trail…You said that President Obama may be to blame for some of the PTSD that’s out there.”

“I never said that,” Palin said back.

“I never blamed President Obama,” she asserted. “What I have blamed President Obama in doing, though, is this level of disrespect for the United States military that has made manifest in cutting budgets, in not trying to beef it up and let our military do the job they’re trained to do, and in specific issues we’re talking about that are so hot today, specifically, let’s get in there and utterly destroy ISIS.”

Lauer jumped in: “Do you regret the comment on that day of the endorsement?”

“What did I say that is offensive?” Palin asked.

“That you seem to lay it at the feet of the president,” Lauer elaborated.

“I don’t regret any comment that I made because I didn’t lay PTSD at the foot of the president,” Palin explained. “If you have a specific quote, it allows the media to be credible, if you would tell me what you’re talking about.”

Lauer attempted to take control of the interview by noting for the audience, and for a furious Palin, that “there were no specific promises made about content of the interview; only this would be your first interview since you endorsed Donald Trump.”

“Well, I was told that this interview is about the caucus tonight in iowa, and right on who will it be to put America back on the right track and restore constitutional government that we’re lacking today.”
