WATCH LIVE: TRUMP SENATE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL BEGINS

Sarah Palin Rushes to Bash Romney and Defend Trump

palinIn an epic battle of former governors who also fell a few percentage points short of the White House, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin responded to former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney‘s feature-length attack on Donald Trump in true Palin fashion: with a Facebook post. Palin, who endorsed Trump in January in spectacular fashion, warned Trump not to “take the bait”:

The “machine’s” deception and nonsensical attack on Trump isn’t really an attack on the candidate, it’s an attack on conscientious, hardworking, patriotic Americans who know we need a revolution to stop the complicit politicians who are fundamentally transforming America. We found the revolutionary.

Donald Trump is the shock the Permanent Political Class needs to wake them up… to destroy their selfish cabal… to respect the will of the people… to make America safe and solvent… to make America great again.

Don’t take the bait, Mr. Trump. It’s not about you. It’s about us. And we’ve got your back.

The post included a video mocking Mitt Romney’s conservative cred:

Palin followed up with a more targeted “thank-you” note to Romney:

Thank You, Mitt

Trump’s favorables just rose again, as did the veil you willingly wore while being used by the corrupt political establishment who can’t afford to lose their power in liberal D.C. Your speech was so silly and contradictory it confirmed the reasons Trump received tens of thousands more votes than you did in your own home state that you governed. Silly man. Could the establishment really not find anyone credible in their holier-than-thou movement to spew the deception you regurgitated today on tv?

Independent, commonsense conservative patriots: now it’s our time to ramp it up, to prove even more adamantly that our movement in this time for choosing is wisely chosen by those who know what’s at stake for America. The political establishment’s desperation is nailing its coffin – obviously a good thing – but we mustn’t let the Alinsky tactics used to destroy our We the People movement go unanswered. His shoulders are broad, but Donald Trump must not carry this on his own shoulders. Thankfully, Mitt’s anti-Republican Platform speech just strengthened our own. Americans’ shoulders just got bigger and broader. Way to go, Mitt.

It shouldn’t take long to see if Romney’s attack puts a dent in Trump, or if Palin is right, and the establishment’s scorn only strengthens him. If recent history is any indication, this could be Palin’s match to win.
