Sarah Palin has been an outspoken proponent of Donald Trump since she endorsed him a year ago. Ironically that was Jan. 19, 2016. Exactly one year later on the 20th of Jan. 2017 Trump will be inaugurated.
She actually told Trump recently that she would like to be considered for the Secretary of Veterans Affairs. She previously told him that she’d like to be considered fo
r Secretary of Energy. Trump actually said that there would be a place in his administration for Palin. Here’s what was reported:
“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.”
However now that Trump is the President-elect, and he is days away from his inauguration,he has finally filled the last remaining position in his administration that was left open. That would be the same position that Sarah wanted,the Secretary of veterans affairs. In a slap-in-the-face to Sarah, Trump selected David Shulkin to be his Secretary of Veterans Affairs. To run salt in Sarah’s wig, Trump appointed Shulkin who is currently the under secretary for health at the VA, where he runs the Veterans Health Administration, and he was nominated for that position by President Barack Obama in March 2015, and confirmed by the Senate that June. Although I might have missed one, it is my impression that Shulkin is the only person nominated by Trump that was part of the Obama administration.
The really offensive thing is that Trump offered the position to several people before Shulkin, and Palin wasn’t one of them.
No doubt Sarah Palin is wondering where have all the flowers,young men, soldiers, supporters,and dollar bills gone?
