Donald Trump has gone against the grain in his campaign for President—including making it clear that he does not trust the media, who often manipulates his quotes and distorts the truth.
This is a sentiment that is echoed by Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor who ran in the 2008 presidential campaign of Vice President. In a recent interview, she made it clear that she is not going to be pushed around.
Palin appeared on NBC’s “Today” show to demonstrate her support of Trump ahead of the Iowa caucus. Co-anchor Savannah Guthrie blatantly disrespected Palin when she went off script and asked about her son’s recent arrest on domestic violence charges.
“You guys brought me to talk about Iowa politics and the caucus tonight, not to talk about my kids—and that was a promise,” Palin argued. “But as things go in the world of media, you guys don’t always keep your promises, evidently.”
Matt Lauer later denied that any promise or agreement had been made with Palin.
“There were no specific promises made about content of the interview, only that this would be your first interview since you endorsed Donald Trump,” Lauer shot back.
“I was told this interview was about the caucus tonight in Iowa,” Palin said, standing firm.
