Palin Hits Cruz for ‘Inconsistencies,’ But Defends Trump Over Changing Abortion Position

palinSarah Palin appeared on CNN this afternoon to explain why, despite endorsing him for Senate four years ago and being good friends with him, she dropped Ted Cruz for Donald Trump in the presidential election.

Tapper asked, “What tipped the scales?” Palin said, “It became a much less difficult decision once some inconsistencies started coming out about Cruz’s position on amnesty, on building that wall and securing our jobs and our homes.”

She even said Cruz would be “more of the same.”

Well, minutes later, Tapper brought up Trump’s own inconsistencies, especially on an issue Palin feels very strongly about––abortion. That’s certainly as much of an inconsistency as anything Cruz is being accused of, and on a socially conservative issue.

Palin’s reaction? “I am so glad that Mr. Trump has seen the light.”

She said it’s a shame that pro-life groups who normally celebrate people’s conversions are going after Trump for his.
