Washington (CNN) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin slammed former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger late Wednesday over the recent revelation that he fathered a child with a household employee while married to Maria Shriver.
Palin called his behavior "irresponsible" and "disgusting" when asked to weigh in on the scandal during an interview on Fox Business.
Though both GOP former chief executives are on the same side of the political aisle, they're not strangers to trading political jabs. But Palin felt comfortable taking a personal shot at Schwarzenegger, who has poked fun at her political views in the past.
"I feel so bad for his children," she said.
"It must be quite embarrassing for them, and, you know, it's an irresponsible and really a pretty disgusting thing that he did, pretty much denying that he had a child for ten years."
The 2008 Republican nominee for vice president and potential 2012 presidential candidate dealt Schwarzenegger, who left office in January, one parting blow.
"That's how I look at it. It speaks to his character. It's sad."
The Quitter on Twitter is a legend in her own mind.....everyone else.....not so much
As if that disgusting bag of dung has any room to talk. What about her wh*re of a daughter having a child without being married? That whole family is a waste of space.
Sarah Palin's behavior is far more disgusting than Schwarznegger's.
on what grounds does she speak. Really ? Really ? Look who is calling the kettle black.
kind of a slow week for Sarah so she had to take a stab at somebody. She didn't go after Newt like some of her buddies did, and nothing really to go after Obama or Michelle for so I guess this was the best she could do. Besides I'm sure she and Maria are such good friends.
Oh Gosh! She has to shut up. Is she aware of what is going on in her household? Anorld is a human being like any other and we all make mistakes!
Palin is a vastly superior politician over that RINO Arnold. She has SUPERIOR morals, integrity, principles, and values over that beefcake and has never deviated once from them. Arnold truly wore the skirt in his family while Maria and their Amazonian daughter Christina wear the pants. This country needs Palin to be our next president for she the most supreme being on this planet! The Palination will be a country of completely empowered women who will rule the world and girls will all grow taller than men.
Takes disgusting to know disgusting.
Sarah: he did not deny he had this child. He has provided for the kid since day one. Do you ever read the newspapers? Oh that's right, you don't read.
Agree that what he did was completely irresponsible – just like a teenager having a child out of wedlock. Oh wait...
Palin needs to look in the mirror !
"I feel so bad for his children," she said.
I'm a Californian , I didn't vote for Arnold . I vote for substance , not celebrity ! Palin is neither !
OMG. This is the first true thing she has ever said. What am I going to do - I agree with her.
For someone who rails against any commentary that reflects the negatives of the Palin household, I think Saint Sarah out to keep her mouth shut. Another example of Republican Tea Party hypocracy in action.
You do know, dim bulb, that your daughter had a baby out of wedlock as a teenager. Did you miss the chapter in the bible you so revere where Jesus says let those without sin among you cast the first stone?
Please, don't you have enough money now? Why don't you quit faux news and speaking?
Your thoughts of being "Intelligent" enough to be in high politics Sarah,is much more concerning to Americans than this BS? Its about "Debate Time Sarah, "I bet your afraid of the media going to ask you some simple questions???? You better have skin as tough as leather,your going to need it! Wow?? Good Luck? Take alot of antacids!!!!!
So your daughter getting pregnant wasn't irresponsible and disgusting???
Some of us think so........
Go get lost $arah – your 15 minutes of fame is long gone.............
Just looking at Sarah's picture. She is sure putting on some age. Wrinkles around the mouth make her look at a witch.
Didn't he say some things about her at some point that she's no doubt considering this an opoprtunity for revenge? You know, since it's pretty much a given that no matter how stupid the drivel that comes out of her mouth or how unimportant, disliked or uninfluential the polls show her to have become, we're still going to get a front page story about it approved by some dumb-ss over-the-hill story editor who considers her to be ad revenue viagra.
So was her daughter having an illegitimate child; AND her running around with her husband's friend. Shut her UP. She's a knucklehead that should be ashamed to point any one of her witch-infested fingers at anyone.
Well, if there's anyone who's an authority on "irresponsible" and "disgusting," it's Sarah Palin. Ahhhnold, consider yourself chastised by an expert.
If only we were all as perfect as this half term governor from Alaska tries to make herself out to be.
We know what she would say about this, why ask her to weigh in on something that most people will agree with her on? If she sees that most people agree with her in this issue she will, somehow in her little brain, take that as a referendum on President Obama and she will be encouraged to run for president.
She, in all her hillbilly trash ignorance, is the one embarrassing the United States - the REAL americans that live in the lower 48.
Ironic coming from her. How's Bristol feeling being called disgusting?? o_O do'h
Why is her opinion relevant? She's not a national political player anymore, just another talking head.
