Here’s a Full Transcript of Sarah Palin’s Bizarre, Incoherent Word Salad Endorsing Donald Trump
Palin: Thank you so much, it’s so great to be in Iowa, we’re here just thawin’ out!
Todd ‘n I an’ a couple of our friends here from Alaska, uh, lending our support for THE next president of our great United States of America Donald J. Trump!
Mr. Trump, you’re right! Look back there in the press box! Heads are spinnin’! Media heads are spinnin’! This is gonna be SO MUCH FUN.
Are you ready to make America great again? (Listless cheer.)
We all have a part in this, we all have a responsibility. Lookin’ around at all of you, you hard-workin’ Iowa families, you farm families an’ teachers an’ teamsters, an’ cops an’ cooks … you… rock ‘n rollers an’ HOLY ROLLERS. All of you who work so hard, you full time moms! YOU, with the hands that rock the cradle! You all make the world go ‘round, and now our cause is one!
When asked why I would jump in, into a primary, nnn kinda stirrin’ it up a little bit baby, and choose one over… some friends who are running and I’ve endorsed, couple others, in their races before they decided to run for president. UH, I was told, you know warned left and right, you are gonna get so clobbered in the press, you are just gonna get beat up. Chewed up ‘n spit out, ‘n you know I’m thinkin’, and…? Yeah?
You know like you guys haven’t tried to do that every day since that night in OH EIGHT when I was on stage nominated for VP and I got to say, “Yeah! I’ll go, send me, you betcha! I’ll serve!” And like you all, I’m still standin’!
So those of us who’ve kinda gone through the wringer as Mr. Trump has makes me respect you, even more, that you’re here and you’re putting your effort and you’re putting reputations, you’re putting relationships on the line to do the right thing for this country because you are READY TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
Well, I am here because like you I know that it is now or never! I’m in it to win it because we believe in America and we love our freedom and if you love your freedom, thank a vet. Thank a vet and know that the United States military deserves a commander in chief who loves our country passionately and will never APOLOGIZE for this country?!
A new commander in chief who will NEVER leave our men behind. A NEW commander in chief, one who will never lie to the families of the fallen.
I’m in it because just last week we’re watchin’ our sailors suffer and be humiliated on a world stage at the hands of Iranian captors, in violation of international law. Because the weak kneed capitulator in chief has decided, that America will lead from behind.
And he, who would negotiate, dills, uh, kind of, like, with the skills of a, community organizer maybe, organizing a neighborhood tea, yuh, well, he, deciding that, no, America would apologize, and uh, as part of the dill, as the enemy sends a message to the rest of the world that they capture and we kow-tow and we apologize, and then, we bend over and say “THANK YOU, ENEMY?!”
We are ready for a change, we are ready and our troops deserve the best. A new commander in chief, whose track record has proven he is the MASTER OF THE DILL. He is beholden to no one but WE THE PEOPLE how refreshing he is perfectly positioned to let YOU make America great again! Are you ready for that, Iowa?
No more pussy-footin’ around! Our troops deserve the best! You deserve the best!
He is from the private sector, not a politician, can I get a hallelujah?
Where in the private sector you actually have to balance budgets in order to prioritize, to keep the main thing the main thing, and he knows, the main thing a president is to keep us safe economically and militarily. He knows the main thing and he knows how to lead the charge. So troops, hang in there because help’s on the way because HE, better than anyone isn’t he known for being able to command…. FIRE?!
Are you ready for a commander in chief? You ready for a commander in chief who will let our warriors do their job and go [screaming] KICK ISIS ASS!!!
Ready for someone who will secure our borders, to secure our jobs, and to secure our homes, READY to make America great again are you ready to stump for Trump? I’m here to support the next president of the United States Donald Trump!
Now, eight years ago I warned that Obama’s promised fundamental transformation of America, that it was gonna take more from you and leave America weaker on the world stage, and that we would soon be unrecognizable. Well, it’s the one promise that Obama kept. But he ditn’t do it alone, and this is important to remember, especially those of you, like, me, a member of the GOP, this is what we have to remember in this very contested competitive great primary race.
Trump’s candidacacy, it has exposed, not just that tragic, the ramifications of, that betrayal of a transformation of our country. But too, he has exposed…. the COMPLICITY on both sides of the aisle, that has enabled it! OK?
Twel, Trump, what he’s been able to do, which is really tickin’ people off, which I’m glad about, he’s goin’ rogue left and right, man, that’s why he’s doin’ so well!
He’s been able to tear the veil off, this idea of the system, the way that the system really works and please hear me on this I want you guys to understand more and more how the system the establishment works and has gotten us into the troubles that we are in in America.
The permanent political class has been doing the bidding of their campaign donor class. And that’s why you see that the borders are kept open. For them, for their cheap labor that they want to come in. That’s why they’ve been bloating budgets, it’s for crony capitalists to be able ta suck off of ‘um. It’s why we see these lousy trade dills that gut our industry, for special interests elsewhere.
We need someone, new, who has the power and is in the position, to bust up that establishment, to make things great again, it’s part of the problem! His candidacy, which is a movement, it’s a force, it’s a strategy, it proves as long as, the politicos, they get to keep their titles and their perks and their media ratings, they don’t really care who wins elections!
Believe me on this! And the proof of this? Look what’s happening today, our own GOP machine the establishment, they who would assemble the political landscape, they’re attacking their own FRONT RUNNER!
Now would the left ever, would the DNC ever come after their front runner and HER supporters? NO! Because they don’t eat their own, they don’t self-destruct.
But for the GOP establishment to be coming after, Donald Trump’s supporters, even, with accusations that, are so false? They are so busted, the way that this thing works.
We, you, a diverse dynamic needed support base that they would attack. And now, some of ‘em even whispering they’re ready to throw in for HILLARY over Trump because they can’t afford to see the status quo go, otherwise, they won’t be able ta be slurpin’ off the gravy train that’s been feedin’ ‘em all these years! They don’t want that ta end!
Well, and then, funny, ha ha, not, funny, but now what they’re doin’ is wailing, well, Trump and his, uh uh, his trumpeters, well, they’re not CONSERVATIVE enough! Oh my goodness gracious, what the heck would the establishment know about conservatism?
Tell me, is this conservative? GOP majorities handing Obama a blank check ta fund Obamacare and Planned Parenthood, and illegal immigration that competes for your job, and turning safety nets inta hammocks, and, all these new Democrat voters that are gonna be comin’ on over the border as we keep the borders open.
As bequeathing our children millions in new debt and refusing to fight back for our solvency and our sovereignty even though that’s why we elected ‘em and sent ‘em as a majority to DC? NO! If they’re not willing to do that then, how are they, to tell us, that we’re not conservative enough, in order to be able to make these changes in America that we know need to be make, NOW, they’re concerned about this ideological purity? Gimme a break! Who are they to say that?
Oh and tell somebody like, uh, Phyllis Schlafly. She is the Republican conservative movement icon and hero and a Trump supporter. Tell her, she’s not conservative, uh.
Uh, how ‘bout the rest of us? Right wingin’ bitter clingin’ proud clingers of our guns our God our and our religions and our Constitution, tell us that we’re not red enough? Yeah, comin’ from the establishment, right.
Well, he, being the only one who’s been willing, who’s got the guts to wear the issues that need to be spoken about and debated on his sleeve. Where the rest of some of these establishment candidates, they just wanted to duck and hide, they didn’t want to talk about these issues til he brought ‘em up, in fact, they’ve been wearing, uh, um, political correctness, kinda like a suicide vest.
And enough is enough, these issues that Donald Trump talks about, had to be debated, and he brought them to the forefront, and that’s why we are where we are today with good discussion, a good, heated and very competitive primary is where we are.
And now, though, to be lectured, that, well, you guys are all sounding kinda angry, is what we’re hearing from the establishment.
DOGGONE RIGHT WE’RE ANGRY! Justifiably so. You know they stomp on our neck and then they tell us just chill. OK, just, yeah, just relax. Well, look, um, we are mad and we’ve been had, and they need to get used to it.
This election is more than just your basic ABCs, anybody but Clinton, it’s more than that this go-around.
When we’re talking about a nation without borders, when we’re talking about bankruptcies and our federal government, debt that our children and our grand-children they’ll never be able to pay off. When we’re talkin’ about no more Reaganesque power, that, that comes from strength, power through strength, well, then, we’re talkin’ about our very existence, so no, we’re not gonna chill.
In fact, it’s time to DRILL BABY DRILL DOWN, and hold these folks accountable.
And we need to stop the self-sabotage, and elect new and independent, a candidate who represents, THAT, and represents America FIRST! Finally, pro-Constitution, common sense solutions that he brings to the table!
Yes, the status quo has got to go, otherwise we’re just gonna get more of the same and with their failed agenda, it can’t, be, salvaged, it must be savaged. And Donald Trump is the right one to do that.
Are you ready for new, and are you ready for the leader who will let you make America great again?!
It’s gonna take a whole team! It’s gonna take a whole team! Fighters, all of us in the private sector, fighters in the House and the Senate!
Sooo…. our friends, who are fighters in the House and the Senate today, they need to stay there and help out! They can help our new leader in the positions that they are in.
Uh, let me say somethin’ really positive about one of those individuals. Rand Paul. I’m gonna tell you about that libertarian streak in him that is healthy because he knows, YOU ONLY GO TO WAR IF YOU’RE DETERMINED TO WIN THE WAR!
And you quit footin’ the bill for these, nations who are oil-rich, we’re paying for, some of their squirmishes, that have been goin’ on, for centuries. Where they’re fightin’ each other and yellin’ Allah Akbar, callin’ jihad on each other’s heads forever and ever. Like I said before, let ‘em duke it out, and let Allah sort it out!
We’ll fight for American interests, and as Donald Trump has said, other nations well we have been footin’ the bill. But we haven’t prioritized our own domestic budgets well enough to be able to afford what we’ve been doing overseas. Things are gonna change under president Trump.
So we can be an unbeatable team with fighters there in the House and the Senate. Yeah, our leader, a little bit different, he’s a multi-billionaire. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
But, it’s amazing, he is not… elitist at all! Oh, I just hope you all get to know him more and more as a person and a family man. What he’s been able to, uh, accomplish, and, with his, um, it’s kind of this quiet generosity, yeah maybe his largesse, kind of, I don’t know, some would say gets in the way of that quiet generosity, and uh, his compassion, but, if you know him as a person and you’ll get to know him more and more you’ll have even more respect not just for his record of success and the good intentions for America, but who he is as a person, he’s not an elitist.
And yes, as a multi-billionaire, we still root him on because he roots us on. And he has, he spent his life with the workin’ man, and he tells us, Joe Sixpacks, he said, You know, I worked very very hard and I’ve succeeded, huuugely I’ve succeeded, he said. And he says and I want you to succeed too.
And, that is refreshing, because he, as he builds things, he builds big things, things that touch the sky, big infastructure that puts other people to work. He has spent his life looking up and respecting the hard hats and the steel-toed boots and the work ethic that you all have within you, he being an optimist, passionate about equal opportunity to work.
This self-made success of his, you … you know that he doesn’t get his power, his high off of opium, other people’s money like a lot of dopes in Washington do! They’re addicted to opium where they take other people’s money, and then their high is getting to redistribute it, right? And then they get to be really popular people, when they get ta give out your hard… money.
Well, he doesn’t do that. His power, his passion, is the fabric of America, and it’s woven by work ethic and dreams and drive and faith in the Almighty, what a combination. Are you ready to share in that again Iowa, because that’s what’s gonna let you make America great again.
He’s gonna be able to empower you to look out for one another again, instead of relyin’ on, a bankrupt government? To supposedly be lookin’ out for you? No, and I think you’re ready for that!
And Iowa, I believe too that you’re ready to see that our vets are treated better than illegal immigrants are treated in this country.
And you’re ready for the tax reform that he talks about to open up Main Street again!
And you’re ready to stop the race-baiting and the division based on color and zip code, to unify around the right issues, the issues important to me or I wouldn’t be endorsin’ him! Pro-life, pro-second amendent, amendment, strict constitutionality, those things that are unifying values, and they’re time-tested truths involved.
These are unifying values from big cities and tiny towns, from big mountain states and the big apple, and the big beautiful heartland that’s in between.
Now, finally friends, I want you to try to picture this, it’s a nice thing to picture. Exactly one year from tomorrow, former President Barack Obama, he packs up the teleprompters and the selfie sticks and the Greek columns and all that hopey changey stuff and he heads on back ta Chicago, where I’m sure he can find some community there ta organize again.
There, HE, can finally look up, President Obama will be able ta look up, and there, over his head, he’ll be able ta see that shining, towering Trump Tower.
Yes, Barack, he built that, and that says A LOT. Iowa, you say a lot. Bein’ here tonight, supporting the right man who will allow you ta make America great again, God bless you, God bless the United States America, and our next president of the United States, Donald J. Trump!!!
