Sarah Palin Still Refusing to Say Trump Lost

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin went on Good Morning Britain this week to be interviewed by Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid. The matter at hand was the start of the impeachment trial of former US President Donald Trump. Palin opened the exchange by saying “these idiots that stormed the Capitol” are blaming Trump because they are unable to take personal responsibility for their actions. She downplayed Trump’s words at the Ellipse and the two months of false voter fraud claims that led to the insurrection on January 6th. Morgan argued that the thousands of people who went into the Capitol were whipped up by Trump, but Palin wanted to focus instead on the thousands of people at the rally that day that didn’t try to violently dismantle the democratic process.

The interview truly went off the rails when Piers asked the former governor about whether or not Joe Biden fairly won the 2020 election. Palin sidestepped the question and said “I know that shenanigans do take place in elections.” That answer did not satisfy the anchors and so they kept pressing on. Morgan asked “where is the fraud?” Palin stumbled and rambled about “shenanigans” and “dead people voting” but could not provide a straight answer. Piers called out Palin for “talking nonsense” before ending the interview. This was an absolute embarrassment for Palin, but it’s what these Trump cronies deserve for continuing to propagate the “big lie.”
