Sarah Palin is digging herself deeper and deeper into a hole. Earlier this month, she wanted everyone to "speak American." Now, she's attacking Ahmed Mohamed, the Muslim teen arrested for bringing a clock that looked like a bomb to school. There was an outburst of support for Mohamed from almost everyone else in the world (well, except Sarah's daughter Bristol Palin, but we'll get to that later).
In a Facebook rant posted Friday, Sarah Palin wrote, "Yep, believing that's a clock in a school pencil box is like believing Barack Obama is ruling over the most transparent administration in history. Right. That's a clock, and I'm the Queen of England."
Well, we already know she's not Her Majesty the Queen—I mean, only Queen Elizabeth can photobomb with such skill—but pray tell, Sarah Palin, what is it, if it's not a clock?
After misspelling Mohamed's name as "Muhammad" all throughout the post, Palin then posted a picture of what real pencil cases look like from her home, in case you didn't know.
Bristol Palin had criticized Obama the day before for inviting Mohamed to the White House in a blog post:
"This is the kind of stuff Obama needs to STAY out of. This encourages more racial strife that is already going on with the 'Black Lives Matter' crowd and encourages victimhood.
"The police made a mistake, clearly.
But why put more people against them? Why egg it on? Childish games like this from our president have divided our country … even more today than when he was elected."
Thanks for your two cents, ladies—and for the endless inspiration for late-night TV.
