Scarborough Pats Palin on the Back for Speaking in ‘Complete Sentences’ During Tapper Interview

During today’s broadcast of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough offered up some high praise to former Republican Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin over the way she handled her interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper yesterday. What was he commending her for? Well, he seemed to be extremely impressed that she was able to speak somewhat articulately. Highlighting right away that he wasn’t trying to be “snide,” Scarborough expressed amazement that “she spoke in complete sentences.” “Over the past five, six, seven years every time she got on TV,” he explained, “she rambled to such a degree — it was word salad.” The MSNBC host added, “If there were a Chop’t chain for the English language, Sarah Palin would be the major franchise owner.” After Scarborough reiterated he was “serious” about his praise for Palin, Wille Geist and Mika Brzezinski remarked that it was “such a low bar” was setting. The rest of the panel would then go on to discuss Palin’s rise to political fame in 2008, her subsequent descent into incoherence during public appearances, and how she helped set the stage for Donald Trump‘s successful run for the White House.
