Over the last several weeks, Donald Trump and Sarah Palin have been trading very public compliments that have gotten a lot of folks talking.
As Western Journalism has reported, Trump recently caused quite a stir by saying he would “love” to have the former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential contender in his administration, should he win the presidency. That tantalizing little tidbit came after Palin heaped praise on “The Donald” for his bold, unscripted, non-PC stands on thorny issues that concern so many Americans who feel their voices aren’t heard by the D.C. elite.
Now, as Trump gets ready to take the Fox News stage for the first GOP debate featuring the top 10 Republican rivals for 2016, Palin has a few words of advice for the candidate she clearly likes. Basically, Palin tells Washington Times podcaster Rusty Humphries in an exclusive interview, Trump is helping to educate and motivate the other Republicans in the 17-person field to step up their game and “quit sounding like politicians.”
