Sarah Palin Endorses Donald Trump for President

Sarah Palin endorsed Donald Trump’s presidential bid on Tuesday, less than two weeks before the caucuses in Iowa.

It’s arguable just what impact an endorsement has on voters’ choices, but as the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, she is the highest profile Republican figure to throw her support behind a candidacy that has taken on the party establishment.

“I am proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for President of the United States of America,” she said in a statement issued by his campaign.

Trump said, “I am greatly honored to receive Sarah’s endorsement. She is a friend, and a high quality person whom I have great respect for. I am proud to have her support.”

The campaign said that Palin will travel with Trump to campaign events in Iowa and Oklahoma on Wednesday.

Trump has previously expressed praise for Palin and said that he’d like her in his cabinet if elected. Palin has said that she would like to be Secretary of Energy, although she has also mentioned getting rid of the department.

The two candidates have something else in common: Each has starred in a reality show, Trump with “The Apprentice” and Palin with “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” which ran on TLC in 2010 after she resigned from her post as governor of Alaska.

    THE ONLY BIMBO I HEAR ARE PEOPLE LIKE BILL B. LISTEN AND LEARN FROM RESEARCH ABOUT WHO IS QUALIFIED AND WHO IS NOT, THEN PRAY AND ASK GOD( JESUS ) WHO TO VOTE FOR, THATS WHERE THE ANSWER IS, UNLESS YOU DON’T HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM, AND YOU NEED HIM ESPECIALLY BECAUSE YOU WILL BE SPENDING ETERNITY LOST.

    The bimbo doesn’t even realize when she is being used. Once he picks of some of her crazed teabaggers votes, she will be history to him.
