Sarah Palin: John McCain Is a Hero, and So Is Donald Trump

palinSarah Palin has finally weighed in on the fight between Donald Trump and John McCain, and––surprise surprise––she blames the media.

Palin spoke out in an email to CNN and defended both of them. She declared, “Both men have more in common than the today’s media hype would have you believe.”

“Sen. McCain dedicated his life to serving our country,” Palin said, “and in my humble opinion the sacrifices made by all ethical service members are heroic — putting it all on the line to defend freedom IS heroic — and Donald Trump is a hero in another arena.”

She believes Trump is doing a service by giving voice to the voiceless on the “destruction of our economy” and illegal immigration, among other issues.

Palin wants to see the two men make up (which is incredibly unlikely, given how offended McCain clearly was this morning):

Palin concluded by recommending both Trump and McCain “resolve the media driven wedge between them.”

“We can keep the debate focused on significant issues at hand,” she said. “I leave politics of personal destruction to those on the Left and lazy media lapdogs who’s only take away from any debate is any salacious slip-up, as if they’ve never wanted to restate something they’ve publicly uttered.”
