By The Daily Wire. On Thursday, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin responded to a New York Times report that claimed Senator John McCain said he regretted choosing Mrs. Palin as his vice presidential pick during the 2008 presidential election.
Palin told The Daily Mail the report was surprising and that it felt like a “perpetual gut-punch” every time she read it.
“That’s not what Sen. McCain has told me all these years, as he’s apologized to me repeatedly for the people who ran his campaign – some who now staff MSNBC, the newsroom there, which tells you a lot,” claimed the former governor . . .
Earlier in the week, the Times reported that McCain’s new book, “The Restless Wave,” says he regretted choosing Palin as his number two on the ticket and wished he had gone with Senator Joseph Lieberman, an Independent.
It’s possible McCain’s ghostwriter added the claim, said Mrs. Palin, since it’s so far off from what he’s told her privately. “I attribute a lot of what we’re hearing and reading regarding McCain’s statements to his ghostwriter or ghostwriters,” she said. “I don’t know all the details of his condition right now. It happens to me also where people speak for me and a bell is rung, and you can’t un-ring the bell.” (Read more from “Sarah Palin Responds to John Mccain Saying He Regrets Choosing Her as VP” HERE)
That’s Not What He Told Me! Sarah Palin Says Hearing John Mccain Say He Regrets Picking Her as His Running Mate in 2008 Is a ‘Perpetual Gut-Punch’ – and Claims He’s Told Her the Opposite
By Daily Mail. . .The onetime Alaska governor spoke to DailyMail.com in Washington before headlining a fundraising event for a Trump-friendly political action committee.
McCain’s recurring apology for her treatment at the hands of the Republican Party elites who turned their noses up at her ‘going rogue’ style, she insisted, ‘has almost been a running joke between the two of us over these years.’
‘I stop him all the time and say, “Please don’t apologize.”
There’s nothing to apologize for anyway, Palin said, since former president Barack Obama’s victory over her and McCain was basically written in the stars.
‘There were elements of a perfect storm for Barack Obama to have been elected. It worked out the way that it was supposed to work out,’ she said. (Read more from “That’s Not What He Told Me!
