Liberal commentators predictably hammered Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent, and Kid Rock over their trolling photo in front of Hillary Clinton’s White House portrait on Wednesday.
The left’s reaction on Twitter to the dinner guests of President Donald Trump varied from a lecturing tone to straight fire-breathing.
Doesn’t matter what the political party is, it’s the White House, not a rally, and it’s an official portrait, not a cardboard cutout.
Having been in that hall and felt the weight of history that the White House stores on every wall-in every piece of furniture, I’m repulsed. https://t.co/lR96ZZF9Xu

CNN’s Ana Navarro slammed Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent, and Kid Rock on Friday’s New Day over their razzing pose in front of the White House portrait of Hillary Clinton.
“I see it as immature, childish, foolish, and to be expected from that crowd,” Navarro contended.
The commentator, who voted for Mrs. Clinton (despite her past Republican affiliation), continued by underling that “one day, there’s going to be a picture of Melania Trump hanging on those walls; and a picture of Donald Trump hanging on those walls; and folks are going to go and stick their tongue out at it. And people are going to say, well, but do you remember when Sarah Palin posed in front of Hillary Clinton, making fun of her?”
Navarro also emphasized that “as somebody who has been at the White House, I can tell you that you see a lot of pictures Continue reading "‘Immature, Childish, Foolish’: Ana Navarro Slams Palin, Nugent for Hillary Clinton Trolling"
All appears normal in this photo above — which features Kid Rock, Sarah Palin, and Ted Nugent posing in front of Hillary Clinton‘s official White House portrait. But according to Nugent, the pose might have been quite a bit different if someone in the group had their way.
In an interview with The New York Times, Nugent said that someone in the group with whom he toured the White House on Wednesday night (including President Donald Trump) suggested they flip the bird at Clinton’s portrait. Nugent did not say which person had the idea.
“I politely declined,” Nugent said. “Let the juxtaposition speak for itself.”
Nugent — who was invited to tag along by Palin (because “Jesus was booked,” Palin told CNN) — seemed to be impressed with Trump’s knowledge of his new digs.
“He gave us a wonderful personal tour of every room and talked Continue reading "Ted Nugent on White House Trip: Someone Suggested We Flip the Bird at Hillary Portrait"
Sarah Palin used to work at Fox News, and when CNN’s Jake Tapper spoke with her this afternoon, he naturally brought up the big news about Fox and Bill O’Reilly‘s ousting this week.
Palin said that the corporate culture at Fox “obviously has to change” because women shouldn’t have to put up with an “intimidating workspace.”
However, the former Alaska governor went on to say this:
“At the same time, if a woman believes that she is being intimidated and harassed, she needs to stand up and do something about it, not stick around for a paycheck for years and years and years and then after the fact complain about what she went through… We should feel more empowered than that.”
Yep. That’s what happened, and the Internet is stunned by all of it.
President Donald Trump invited Sarah Palin to the White House for dinner on Wednesday night, and the former Alaska governor made some interesting additions to the guest list. Palin uploaded photos from her night on Facebook, and they show how she and the president were joined by rockers Kid Rock and Ted Nugent.
Nugent’s wife, Shemane Deziel, and Kid Rock’s fiancee, Audrey Berry, also attended the festivities. A photo from Deziel shows that the party took time to ridicule Hillary Clinton between dinner and their visit to the Oval Office:
Naturally, since all three personalities have controversial histories to their names, the Twitterverse had quite a lot to say about the photos:
Sarah Palin is taking aim at Elizabeth Warren, accusing the Democratic Massachusetts senator of lifting a line frequently used by the former governor of Alaska.
That line: “Fight like a girl.”
Though the Massachusetts Senator has become fond of the expression, Palin’s use of the phrase seemingly predates Warren’s, Breitbart reported. The former Alaska governor told the right wing website that she wasn’t happy about Warren’s appropriation.
I don’t know. Coming from liberals who urge women to claim victimization, ‘Fight like a girl’ just doesn’t sound the same as when legit fighters for equality say it, mean it, live it, and will never give it up.
During a recent interview with NPR, Warren recounted a story about how activism will keep playing a major role for putting pressure on the government:
Sarah Palin sparked outrage by criticizing an NFL player for donating $50k to Meals on Wheels, a program benefitting seniors and the disabled which is facing possible funding cuts under Donald Trump‘s new budget.
The title of her blog post on the topic is, “SERIOUSLY? Colin Kaepernick Just Pulled ANOTHER Political Stunt…” Obviously, her use of “another” refers to Kaepenick’s decision not to stand for the national anthem in protest of police brutality. In a tweet linking to the post, she mused, “No wonder he can’t get a job…” in reference to reports that some NFL teams don’t want to hire him. The post itself outlines her oppositional argument, which is that it has yet to be confirmed that Meals on Wheels will lose funding.
Still, regardless of what headlines are saying about Meals on Wheels, Kaepernick donated his money to a program that feeds some of the neediest Americans. That’s
