Sarah Palin came to the defense of Donald Trump supporters and condemning Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz for insulting them.
Cruz’s comments that voters who favor Trump have “relatively low information” and are “not that engaged” earned him a scathing response from Palin who went off in a Facebook post on Thursday.
The Texas senator’s “insinuation” that Trump’s supporters are “Wayyyyyy Beneath” him “reeks of all the reasons America knows ‘the status quo has got to go,'” Palin said in the post.
Calling Cruz’s comments “downright nasty,” Palin then turned the GOP candidate’s words on himself asserting that Trump voters ARE low information when it comes to knowing about Cruz.
The former Alaska governor slammed Cruz by systematically asking where voters could get information on his ability to unify and lead, and asking him “how it helps make America great again by arrogantly disenfranchising this Primary season’s majority voters who are fed-up, inspired, optimistic, and engaged?”
“How does it help unify the party or the nation when that holier-than-thou narcissism manifests itself through negative, biting, deceptive tactics,” asked Palin, who endorsed Trump in January.
Palin suggested that the information on Cruz is “nonexistent” while Trump’s “energized, positive campaign” has broken previous Republican voter turnout records.
“Any info, Ted, on where you think that ‘disengaged’ momentum will take us?” Palin asked at the close of the post.
