Palin Rips Steve King for Suggesting Trump Bought Her Off: He’s Been ‘Huffing Ethanol’

palinThis morning Iowa Congressman and strong conservative Steve King suggested Donald Trump bought off Sarah Palin to get her endorsement. Well, Palin came back swinging as she introduced Trump at an Iowa rally this afternoon.

King said on MSNBC this morning, “He has a massive amount of assets and resources that he can deploy when it comes time to convince someone. And that has to affect the way people think.”

He continued, “Not only the plus-ups of the promotion, the limelight, all the resources that are there.”

Well, Palin herself got wind of this and called King “a friend of mine… I thought.”

She first mocked the fact that he was appearing on MSNBC of all places (never mind that she was on NBC this morning), and asked, “Why would a good conservative guy like Steve King, from the heartland of America, want to say something that he knows isn’t true?”

“Maybe he’s forgotten some of his heart in the heartland,” she said. “He got a touch of that Potomac fever there in DC. Maybe he’s been out in a cornfield too long huffing ethanol or something.”

She insisted the only thing Trump promised her was that he would MAKE SARAH PALIN RELEVANT AGAIN AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
