Sarah Palin has never been accused of being honest, so her adamant denial that she never blamed Obama for her son’s PTSD came as no surprise.
In an interview on Today on Monday, Palin, who recently endorsed Donald Trump, was asked about a statement she made that her son Track, who served in the military, came back home suffering with PTSD, thanks to Obama. Her statement received universal denunciation from veteran groups across this nation and made the headlines for days, but now, Palin is playing dumb… or maybe she’s not playing at all…
In the interview with Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, Palin was asked about her statement.
“You talked about it, and then you mentioned PTSD,” Guthrie said, “and you said that President Obama may be to blame for some of the PTSD that’s out there.”
Palin fired back that she was “promised” questions about politics and Iowa before agreeing to the interview. “As things go in the world of media, you don’t always keep your promises, evidently,” she said, before diving headfirst into her answer albeit, a lying answer, that she did not blame Obama for Track’s ‘PTSD.’
Matt Lauer continued the line of questioning and asked whether she regretted the comment. Palin replied, “What did I say that was offensive? I don’t regret any comment that I made because I didn’t lay PTSD at the foot of the president.” She replied. “If you have a specific quote, it allows the media to be credible if you guys would tell me exactly what you’re talking about.”
