Sarah Palin Defends Donald Trump For 'Telling The Truth,' Open To Being Running Mate

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin defended Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump during an interview with Extra.

“Man he is just getting crucified out there just for telling the truth,” Palin, who was John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential election, said. 

“He’s doing a good job of that and he’s shaking it up the way it should be, and he’s leading other candidates and having to talk about the issues that average Joe Six-Pack American wants to hear and wants to talk about," she added.

In response to Trump’s recent comments about considering Palin as a running mate, the former governor hinted at potentially being open to the idea.

“Well, there are so many good potential female running mates out there, and male running mates,” she said. “I’m certainly all about this ABC thing — Anybody But Clinton!”

Palin didn’t hold back when it came to criticizing Hillary Clinton.

“We’ve had seven or eight years of a liberal policy that’s turning us into a socialist nation and that’s not what our founders have intended for us," she said. "If we were to elect someone who’s been part of the problem creating the socialism, really there is no hope.

“The skids are greased for her, I think the media is kind of playing this game, where they’re clobbering her a little today, you know they’re trying to hold her accountable, do that when she does though jump over this latest hump, which is this scandal with the emails, the media can say, ‘Hey, see, we were fair.'”
