In an exchange with Fox News Radio’s Todd Starnes, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said all hell is breaking loose in Egypt and President Obama‘s only interest is riding his bicycle and “having a gay old time.”
“It’s sad for America,” Palin said. “Literally all hell seems to be breaking loose and President Obama is in Martha’s Vineyard having a gay old time, riding his bike, partying it up.”
As Starnes summarized, Palin said Obama’s handling of the crisis in Egypt has been appalling and it’s beyond time for him to exert authority and leadership.
“It’s sad for our allies and sad for anyone who believes that America can still exert some positive influence for good in this world without unnecessary intervention,” she said. “We can use a less than dithering message from our less than dithering president.”
In referencing a speech Obama delivered in 2010 when he said “whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower,” Palin countered that this “is the most drastic and most significant statement he’s made.”
“As if we didn’t like being a superpower,” Palin replied. “That’s one of the things that makes America exceptional. It’s respect. It’s the idea that we would usher in peace through strength across the globe. We were looked up to for that.”
Palin added that it’s time for the president to pull all funding from Egypt until the violence stops and she pointed to Egyptian Christians being targeted by Muslim extremists.
“Egyptian Christians are being slaughtered and we need to put pressure on our government to at least speak up for the faith-filled people on that country,” she told Starnes.
