Palin’s statement to the press: “COVID is the newest tool of the wokesters, trying to cancel freedom-loving patriots like me as they seek to attain justice from the lamestream media.”

(She should hire me to write her press releases.)

I"m hoping she ends up on a ventilator for about a month.

I guess COVID had her in its cross-hairs! You could say it’s “linked” to Trumpism, right?

Just so Judge Rakoff doesn’t suggest there’s a link between her being unvaccinated and contracting COVID.

She might sue him.

Like everything about the Palin family, I don’t believe Governor Palin’s story.

How is blaming Sara Palin’s rhetoric for extremist violence different from say, blaming a murdered police officer on “BLM?” Wouldn’t a reasonable person understand that such statements are opinions, rather than facts?
