It was almost a year ago that Donald Trump said he had not asked Sarah Palin to be his vice presidential candidate. He did not think “it’d be something that she’d want to do.” But, he indicated, she could play a role in his administration if she so desired.
“She’s been through that, and interestingly, Savannah, this is a 100 percent fact, when she came to see me and she talked to me, I could see that she really liked what we were saying,” the Republican presidential candidate said in a telephone interview with Savannah Guthrie on NBC’s “Today,” following Palin’s endorsement of his campaign.
“She never made a deal, like so many people want to try and make deals. I mean, she just said: I really like what’s going on, it’s an amazing thing, I’ve never seen anything like it in politics,” Trump told Guthrie.
While adding that Palin could “certainly” play a role in his campaign or future administration, potentially as the vice presidential pick, Trump declined to engage in any speculation as to whether she would be his choice, boasting that “everybody wanted” the endorsement of the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential nominee.
“I haven’t discussed it with her. No, I haven’t discussed anything with her about what she’d do, but she’s somebody I really like and I respect. And certainly, she could play a position if she wanted to,” Trump said, adding that he did not think Palin would want to do that again.
“I mean, I don’t think she’d want to do it, and I really don’t get into it right now because — that question is always asked of me, who do you have in mind,” he continued. “And I don’t even think about VP right now, and I just want to win. I’ve always been a closer, I get the deal done, I have to win before I start thinking about that.”
Last night Kellyanne Conway told Megyn Kelly of Fox News
“Sarah Palin’s isn’t in the running for a cabinet job in the Trump administration — at least as far as the senior adviser to his transition team is aware.
“I know that they’re close and that she’s been a great, loyal friend and adviser to him throughout the campaign, but I haven’t seen her as part of the cabinet mix.”
It must be a sad day for Sarah Palin, realizing that she endorsed Trump, disavowed Ted Cruz, and now that Trump has won, she won’t be included in his administration. If she were to reach out to Trump, this might be what she’d say:

Re: Appointment as Inside Shelf Girl
Hey Donald, you rat,
Did you think you could ignore me like one of your previous wives or mistresses? Did you forget the Todd has a lot of crap on you?
I was just thinking of how we could make Merica Great Again, and I was just thinkin that if you’d just go ahead and appoint me to your shelf, but only the inside shelf, an don’t call me a Secretary, just call me your girl, I’m ready to serve. I don’t want to be Shelf Person of the Exterior. I don’t want to be Shelf Person of the Superior or in charge of the Inferior Shelf. I have great experience with Interiors…everyone says so. Just look at my home in Alaska. I have shelves all over my house. I live in the Interior. When we built the house, the contractor build a lot of shelves just like the ones at the hockey center, at no extra cost. When I had four or five children we built them shelves, all that we put in the Interior of the house. All of my illegitimate grandkids were born, regardless of the date, in the interior. We built them their own shelves. Todd keeps all his women in the interior near their shelves. Bristol dances in the Interior and works in the Interior for the Dr. whose name has something to do with masturbation, but ask anyone, her shelves are impressive. Every time I go to the restroom I do it in the interior and I keep my toiletries on the shelves. You will never find a woman who has a better relationship with the interior, and more familiar with shelves than me. Please announce my appointment to your shelf. I never found out what a Vice President does, but I know what the Shelf position is. Todd told me about that has to do with interiors.
I know you think I’m stupid, but I know what a shelf is, and I have a lot of experience with them. I know you think I’m too old to be of interest to you, but appointing a woman to a shelf position that you don’t find attractive would be good for your image. I hear you seem to have a hard time keeping your hands to yourself. If you don’t find me attractive, what a great idea…appointing a woman whose pussy you won’t be inclined to grab.
I’m not black, Muslim, or homosexual. Like you, I love Jews. I agree somebody else should pay for everything, and I use my kids for political advantage, just like you. Like you, I agree that Mexico is not sending its finest, and a wall is a great idea. I know you made fun of a disabled reporter, but he was probably too stupid to know what you were saying.
You incite violence. I encourage people to “reload”. That Gabby Giffords thing…most people have forgotten about that.
You and Todd could form a joint venture. Todd could handle the women and you could handle the girls. Melania has posed naked. I got naked for a massage once. Melania doesn’t want to live with you. I don’t want to live with Todd. You embarrassed Ted Cruz. So did I. I post ridiculous things on Facebook. You do it on Twitter. We don’t have a dog any longer, and you never had one at all. Melania has had her breasts enlarged, and so have I.
You hair looks funny, and so does mine.
You have had plastic surgery, and so have I. You have nothing nice to say about Alec Baldwin, and neither do I.
I have an orange hand, and you have an orange face.
You have a spouse who doesn’t want to live with you, and so do I. You inspire people to fight, and so do I. You are undefeated and so am I.
You don’t want to incur my wrath!
Just ask Todd.
