Former GOP vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin was questioned about her support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump by a 10-year-old boy on June 26 at Politicon in Pasadena, California (video below).
The boy asked Palin how she could endorse Trump after he (Trump) said that Fox News host Megan Kelly had "blood coming out of her whatever," reports Mediaite.com.
"How can you endorse someone who’s sexist?" the boy asked Palin.
The crowd broke into cheers.
The former Republican governor of Alaska didn't address the specifics of the boy's question, but replied, "Donald Trump isn’t sexist. If he were, I wouldn’t be endorsing him, yes!"
Trump has a history of making disparaging remarks about women, which Kelly mentioned during the first GOP debate on Fox News in August 2015: "You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals," reported The Guardian at the time.
Trump told Kelly that was only about Rosie O'Donnell, but Kelly said it was not and added: "Your Twitter account has several disparaging comments about women’s looks. You once told a contestant on the Celebrity Apprentice it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees."
After the debate, Trump made the blood remark about Kelly.
During another part of Palin's appearance at Politicon, she shared her advice for Trump in his quest for a future vice-president, which included not running with someone who would poison him, reports Mediaite.com:
I would tell him to find someone who understands who the boss would be, someone who is not running to, somebody that he could serve with who, he wouldn’t need a food taste-tester around him, you know what I mean? Someone who is going to be loyal to what the boss’ agenda is.
That’s going to be real important, too. And someone who had experience, too, again, coming from the private sector, connected to the essential people in this country, and not part of the political establishment that has been part of the problem.
