“New report” is the complete remark of Sarah Palin on her twitter account, linking a story about damage done to a US ship in the South China Sea. The ship was a guided-missile destroyer, which is particularly important due to the recent threats made by Kim Jong Un. Because it was in the South China Sea when a collision with a merchant ship occurred, it is even more troublesome. The proximity to North Korea makes this missile destroyer even more critical to the defense of the United States and its allies. Sarah Palin simply reported the story with comment “new report”, as if the “new report” could refer to something as trivial as a “new report” on another pregnancy of Bristol, another Palin family brawl, a new tableshirt Sarah bought, or a new report of domestic violence concerning Track.
The name of the US ship was the USS John McCain and it did sustain “some damage.”
This report comes just weeks after the USS Fitzgerald was involved in a collision.
According to the Commander, U.S. 7th Fleetwebsite, the collision was reported at 6:24 a.m. Japan Standard Time, while the ship was transiting to a routine port visit in Singapore.
Sarah Palin get’s credit for an amazing observation about the job of Donald Trump, our Commander-in-chief, when she remarks “new report”. It seems we can always count on Sarah’s astute power of observation to tell a story like it is. If Trump starts a nuclear war with North Korea, maybe the headline will read “Another new report”.
