Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin was on “Today” on Monday and was talking about her support of Donald Trump in the Presidential election. After talking about how Trump flip-flopping on his ideals was “seeing the light,” the Sarah Palin “Today” interview turned to questions about her accusing President Barack Obama of her son’s PTSD that she claims resulted in his arrest.
Palin grew agitated at the question and actually said that the interviewers chose not to keep their promises. According to Palin, she was promised that they would take to her about supporting Trump and the Iowa caucus and would not ask her any questions about her son. After she ripped into Savannah Guthrie for asking about the Track Palin situation, she then tried to clarify her statement.
Palin said that she never blamed President Obama for her son’s PTSD problems, but was just blaming him for disrespecting the military and not supporting them during their times of trouble. Palin continued to blame the PTSD from the war for her son abusing a woman because he came back from the war “a little different.”
She then said that soldiers come back from the wars hardened and they see that there is no respect for what they did in this country. She said that starts at the top, and that is with President Obama. Track Palin served in the military when President George Bush was the leader of the country. However, Palin seemed to claim that it is the new leadership that has caused the disrespect for the soldiers.
Palin then turned it around and said that she feels that Donald Trump is the candidate that will respect the troops when they return with problems. What was humorous was that, at the end of the Sarah Palin “Today” interview, Matt Lauer clarified for the audience that there was no promise about the content of the interview.
