Palin and Trump team up


New York (CNN) – Potential presidential hopeful Sarah Palin brought her "One Nation" bus tour to Manhattan on Tuesday, splitting a pizza with Donald Trump, who recently opted not to launch a bid for the Republican nomination.

"We talked about specific candidates and potential candidates, and kind of just what our perception was of each of these folks," the former Alaska governor said without getting into specifics. "It was interesting. We're kind of on the same page there."

    well it's good that Trump still has that great relationship with the "Blacks" as he says he does. Maybe he can teach Sarah Palin to have one as well because she certainly DOESN'T!

    They are both egocentric narcissists who are very adept at rationalizing their behavior (simpler translation: they are both liars).

    Our country is fixated on celebrity, with far too many people willing to address the very real and pressing problems our nation faces.

    Trump and Palin are just the poster children for this epidemic of stupidity.

    Palin must think Trump would make a good campaign donor if she should run. LOL.

    I guess we can cross out 'family vacation' and insert 'looking for donation' for this bus trip. She's traveling with a Fox producer and cameraman, making politically oriented speeches, and soliciting donors, all while working for and getting paid by Fox News Channel. That means this trip would violate FEC rules, big time, should she file and later announce a candidacy.

    I'm curious: did she have throngs of adoring fans surrounding her in NYC, or, more than likely, did she scoot in and out of town and shops as inconspicously as possible?
    Us New Yorkers do not tolerate nor fall for her ignorant brand of bull. And being the true melting pot that we are her little divisive tactics that go over so well in backwoods Ameriku would find no reception within city limits.

    It is better to have enough brain than having tons of money. Watching this video how Trump Palin are hand in hand make me laugh. I do not need to say more!

    I'm sorry, I still CANNOT believe that she went into the city without somebody throwing shoes, and giving her a resounding and well-deserved Bronx cheer: BOOOOO!!!!!!

  12. once upon a horse

    Still waiting for Trump to tell us what his troops on the ground in Hawaii actually found since they claimed the BC wasn't there, also what he "heard" about the president not being a good student and who actually told him that, AND since Obama showed his BC when Trump is going to show his tax returns. Trump and Palin make a good team....the "first dude" better be careful because Donald has a way of stealing oter guys' women.

    Trump should stay out of the lime light and build buildings and Sara can go back to Alaska keep fishing and hunting. They both do not have what it takes to lead our country. By the way why are we wasting our time writing about those people when we have more credible news out there. It is simply a Joke to see the media get caught up in this circus when we can discuss jobs, haetlth care, social security, medicare to mention some which is in the minds of a lot of people. The media ought be ashamed to waste there time and there brain cells writing about people who have no place in today's politics. The public is much smarter than what you think, so stop wasting you time.

    Dr. Phil used to say "What were you thinking"?? in a loud voice. I do now ask Sarah; What are you thinking Sarah?? Riding m/cycles without being invited; roaming around with a bus written in every corner; joining Trump who recently let people down and they are now puzzled who to support. Carrying the whole family along including your old parents to such a trip with no reason. What are you thinking Sarah???

    The psychotic obsession of Liberals over Sarah Palin is disturbing. Secretly, Liberals want Palin to be the Republican nominee in 2012. That will never happen.
    Liberals are scared to death at the thought of Chris Christie or Paul Ryan or Marco Rubio deciding to run for the Republican nomination in 2012. They know that either one of these candidates will dwarf the intellectual lightweight who now occupies the White House.

    so NOW it's "liberals are afraid of Tubby the Grubinator, Paul 'let the insurance companies decide who dies' or Rubio who is popular with the anti-castro cuban population in his own state." I thought it was Failin Palin we were afraid of??? As long as she is in the game (which she can't resist due to her unbounded ego) she is an anchor and pulls everyone way too far to the right for a general election. Not one of those three you mentioned would win. Tubby would not even win his own state
