When Today show hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie dared ask Sarah Palin pointed questions today about her son Track’s domestic violence attack, the former Alaska governor was far from impressed.
Turning her fury on hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, she said:
“Let’s start by, you guys brought me here to talk about Iowa politics and the caucus tonight not to talk about my kids and that was a promise. But as things go in the world of media you guys don’t always keep your promises evidently.”
Palin erupted live on air when Guthrie asked Palin about comments she made on an endorsement tour with Donald Trump that linked post-traumatic stress to her veteran son’s problems and insinuated Obama was responsible.
“What did I say that was offensive?’ Palin said.
“I don’t regret any comment that I made because I didn’t lay PTSD at the foot of the president,” she added.
Palin asked the hosts to provide her with a specific quote that suggests this.
Addressing the subject of credibility, Lauer said on air ‘no specific promises’ were made about the content of the interview, just that it was to be Palin’s first live interview after her endorsement of Trump, who likely will win tonight’s Iowa caucuses.
‘I never blamed President Obama,’ Palin pushed back.
