“Right wingin’, bitter clingin’, proud clingers of our guns.”
These are the carefully chosen words Sarah Palin used to describe herself and the likes of her while endorsing Donald Trump in Iowa.
“I’m proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for president,” Palin said in a statement from Trump's campaign.
It’s not like anyone needed more proof. But her official support for the Republican frontrunner has made it so much easier for the world to understand that there are only three kinds of voters who would want Trump to lead the country: clueless, bigots and, last but not least, people who are a bit of both.
So, Palin, in a weird, obnoxious and twisted way, deserves some credit here.
And it’s not a surprising move either. Palin, after all, has done nearly everything in her life that makes her eerily similar to Trump and, therefore, worthy of a leader like him.

It’s a known fact that both of them hate illegal immigrants and want them to speak English — though in Palin’s case, she wants American (whatever that is).
Last September, Trump, said “While we’re in this nation, we should be speaking English, and that’s how assimilation works… Whether people like it or not, that’s how we assimilate.” Agreeing with him, days later, Palin told CNN, “Let’s speak American. I mean, let’s speak English. That’s kind of a unifying aspect of a nation is the language that is understood by all.”
Both of them have absolutely no idea how to address Muslims. While Trump’s Nazi-esque Muslim plans are well-known, Palin once commented that the only time an atheist would be acceptable for public office is if the other candidate was a Muslim who “literally wants to kill” Americans.
Palin essentially could be Trump 2.0 — or vice versa.
