Make no mistake. I’m 58 years old and would never post a picture of myself in a swim suit on social media. I wouldn’t even let my kids take a photo of me in a swim suit. In the real world we realize that looks fade as we grow older. It is nothing to be ashamed of. Hopefully by the time we celebrate our 50th birthday we find something to celebrate other than how hot we look in a swim suit.
Sarah Palin posted a picture of herself on Facebook in a swim suit. She looks pretty good for a mother of several children who is over 50.
But that’s not the point. The country is in a state of total despair that Donald Trump is the Republican nominee for President and Sarah Palin is posting swim suit pictures of herself on Facebook. Instead of admitting she made a mistake by endorsing Trump, she changes the conversation to sex. Instead of joining with her son-in-law to champion the cause of the military, as the country expresses shock and embarrassment that Trump would malign the family of a fallen soldier, Sarah Palin tries to change the focus of her fans to sex. As Hillary’s lead soars, Sarah abandons any thought or concern for the candidate she endorsed.
Perhaps it comes as no surprise that Palin is interested in promoting herself as one hot mama. When we remember other pictures she’s posted on Facebook, it is clear what she thinks is important.
Realizing that nobody seems to care what Sarah looks like in a swim suit is a relief! By way of comparison 740,000 people viewed her Facebook post wishing Billy Graham a happy birthday. Her video about Ronald Reagan received more than 180,000 views. A video about global warming was seen by nearly a half a million people. Sarah received an estimated 82,000 views of her bikini video. While I freely admit I could never get 82000 views of myself wearing anything, people do watch things that scare them or that are repulsive to watch. For example:
Over 8 million people have watched this scary video:
Over 3 million people watched these people eat disgusting food.
More people watched this man pull off his dead toenail than watched Sarah Palin splash around in her swim suit.
