John McCain Reacts to Palin Endorsing Trump

The only reason Sarah Palin is a big deal in the first place––leading to the huge news of her Donald Trump endorsement today––is because of John McCain, and McCain reacted early tonight to Palin’s endorsement of Trump.

Just as a refresher: despite their post-2008 differences, McCain and Palin have still been friendly. Palin supported McCain for reelection in 2010. When Trump made that nasty remark about liking POWs who don’t get captured, unlike McCain, instead of maybe showing more support for her friend, Palin instead tried to split the difference by calling both Trump and McCain heroes.

And none of that even factors in how much McCain really, REALLY dislikes Donald Trump. On the other hand, McCain also dislikes Ted Cruz, whom Palin passed over.

So here’s how McCain responded to Palin’s Trump endorsement tonight:

Well, there you have it.
