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?



Donald Trump never said he’d definitely put Sarah Palin in is cabinet.  All Trump ever said was that she might play a role in his administration, if shes so desired. Given her lack of education, experience, and her history as a quitter, it would be hard to find a role for  Palin in this administration.  She isn’t really experienced washing her own panties.   


She’s proven herself to be a poor rock runner.


Nobody believes she really cooks.


Nobody believes she really hunts.



Compare Sarah Palin to Jeff Miller who is also being considered for that position.  Mr. Miller is a soon-to-be retired representative from Florida’s First Congressional District. Miller, a Republican, has been a member of the House of Representatives’ Veterans Affairs Committee since taking office in 2001, and has served as its chairman since 2011.  In recent years Miller has gained national attention as his committee has investigated long wait times for appointments at VA medical facilities and other scandals in the department. An early Trump supporter, he was thought by many to be a favorite for the position shortly after the election.

He has the support of many veterans advocates in Northwest Florida, including his successor, Congressman-elect Matt Gaetz.  Conversely, Sarah Palin has been criticized by veterans groups, and would be the first person appointed to run the VA who is not herself a Veteran.   Miller has expressed a willingness to take the job if offered.

Perhaps the even more important consideration is the fact that Miller has demonstrated   his willingness to work toward making a difference for Vets.  Palin has not demonstrated a willingness to work towards making a difference for anyone, except herself.







Thank God he talks to Pat Robertson!  It’s good to know what God is thinking.  When Pat Robertson speaks, it seems like he is God’s voice.  Worry no longer about what God thinks,just ask Robertson.

It was September 17th of 2008 Palin received the enthusiastic support of the evangelical Christian Coalition, whose founder was Pat Robertson.

It seems God has changed his opinion of Sarah Palin.  God explained, through Robertson:


It seems that Pat Robertson was baffled by reports that President-elect Donald Trump is considering Sarah Palin to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs.  Robertson told Wendy Griffith that Palin should absolutely not be nominated to the Cabinet post.

Heaven help us from that,” Robertson said. “That would be a terrible thing. Terrible. Terrible.”

When Griffith said Palin has “a lot on her plate,” Robertson responded, “Too much on her plate, that’s a nice way of putting it.”





It was November 30th that Sarah Palin was reported to have been asking the Trump team to appoint her to be Secretary of Veteran Affairs. Just a couple of days later, on December 2nd Palin was reported to have attacked Trump for his deal with Carrier as an example of  “crony capitalism.” Certainly that would suggest that the Trump team may have told Sarah , not NO, but HELL NO!  That would explain Palin’s willingness to attack Trump, after previously attempting to support Trump, even though she appeared to be speaking a foreign language.

It appears American veterans aren’t happy with even the possibility that Trump would consider appointing Palin as Secretary of Veterans affairs.  From jobs to health care to finding homes and the ongoing problem of veterans’ suicides, Veterans seem to be in need of a serious leader to help them find solutions.  They need someone who knows and understands the problems that our vets are facing.

Initially veterans came together to demand an apology from Trump as a result of his insults toward the parents of a Muslim-American soldie who was killed in action, giving his life to protect his fellow soldiers.

Now, vets have come together to protest the potential appointment of Sarah Palin as the Secretary of Veteran’s Affairs.  Veterans were reportedly horrified at the prospect that Palin might be chosen to represent their interests.



Citing her lack of military service and general dearth of qualifications, veterans took to social media to express their displeasure with Trump’s potential choice.

Sarah Palin is a supremely terrible pick for the Veterans Affairs Secretary. Being the furthest thing you could be from either a veteran or a doctor, she would be in charge of an intricate healthcare system in desperate need of reform and 300,000 employees. Here are just a few examples of comments from Vets to describe what an unmitigated disaster Sarah Palin would be a the Secretary of Veteran Affairs:



If Sarah Palin gets the job to head the VA, us Veterans are Fucked! She can’t even run water!

Sarah Palin over the VA just let’s me know Trump gives two fucks about veterans. Like the many times he disrespected us during his campaign

In 2014 an average of 20 Veterans committed suicide every day.  Imagine  the mass suicides that might result if vets felt Sarah Palin was their only hope towards having a better life!  Imagine the mass suicides that might result if Veterans felt the President of the United States was so unconcerned with helping them that he would appoint somebody so ignorant and inexperienced as Sarah Palin.



Sarah Palin didn’t call for a boycott of Black Santa because he was described as white in the Bible.  She didn’t get coal from the Black Santa.  She hasn’t become friends with Shailey Tripp.  She hasn’t produced a birth certificate for Trig.    She hasn’t returned Bristol’s ring.  She hasn’t made any more blueberry pie,


any nobody knows what happened to the Palin Thanksgiving?!


(Did Trig recover from the Thanksgiving-choke-hold?)

Sarah hasn’t been seen doing any more rock running,






or brawling.


Perhaps nobody cares if she isn’t doing these things, but we are certain that Palin has her “panties in a wad”

because Trump hasn’t found a position for her in his cabinet yet.


I know she’s be mentioned for Energy Secretary, Interior Secretary, and now she’s even gone so far as to tell the Trump team that she want’s the position as Secretary of Veterans affairs.  Maybe she could arrange to sit on Santa’s lap and tell him about her wish too!
