Sarah Palin clapped back at a dig by the “purveyor of untruths,” former President Obama, who said she brought out the “dark spirits” of the Republican Party.
The former Alaska governor spoke with Fox News host Sean Hannity about the insulting comment and fired back at Obama, sarcastically referring to him as Moses because of his new, more than 700-page memoir titled, “A Promised Land.”
“Moses is the master of the politics of personal destruction, which people were so fed up with that a movement began and they elected someone to hopefully get us on the path to get rid of the politics of personal destruction,” Palin said on “Hannity” Thursday.
She went on to dismiss Obama’s insults as unimportant since she does not value his opinion.

“In order to let a man’s opinion hurt, we have to give a little bit of value to that man’s opinion,” said Palin, who ran as the vice presidential nominee in 2008 as the late Sen. John McCain’s running mate.
The former president noted in his book that, while he had planned to have it completed sooner, he “didn’t fully anticipate” the “way events would unfold during the more than three and a half years.” He stoked racial tensions, claiming that Americans were “spooked by a black man in the White House” and pointed an accusing finger at Palin.
“Through Palin, it seemed as if the dark spirits that had long been lurking on the edges of the modern Republican Party — xenophobia, anti intellectualism, paranoid conspiracy theories, an antipathy toward Black and brown folks — were finding their way to center stage,” Obama wrote.
“He does not represent truth,” Palin told Hannity in the interview on the eve of the book’s release this week.
The Fox News host noted how Obama’s rhetoric is insulting to the more than 70 million Americans who voted for President Trump earlier this month.
“The lamestream media has been pretty successful in trying to make this whole issue and issue of attacks on Donald Trump and his personality or his tone or his mannerisms, whatever,” Palin said.
“But really, America has to remember that the left, led by Barack Obama and still, Hillary Clinton and [Democratic nominee Joe] Biden, they’re after us…They’re after what it is we represent,” she said, noting that it is truth.
She contended that Obama is “absent” from the truth and that “there’s proof after proof after proof that he is a purveyor of untruths.”
“Our country has to love truth. We have to be seekers of truth. We have to be willing to follow truth. And there are so many untruths that Barack Obama is leading people towards still,” she said, offering examples of that as seen in the Democratic Party platform in the support of abortion and the stand on law and order.
“There are so many things that Barack Obama stands for still, and he just doesn’t get it,” Palin asserted, “that the solution to the problems in our country, it all comes down to simply loving truth. He does not represent love or truth.”
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem slammed the “ridiculous message” from Obama’s new book last week, calling out his hypocrisy over the “possibility of America” and his insulting blame-game.
“Obama had 8 years, including 2 with full control of Congress. He sent our jobs to China, left our healthcare system in disarray, our foreign policy in shambles & our people divided,” the GOP governor tweeted. “Instead of blaming Trump, Obama should consider what led to 2016.”
Conservative activist Candace Owens blasted Obama for the “unfathomable” and “backwards” suggestion that Trump’s presidency was the result of racism in America, calling him out as the first president who left the White House “hating America” in an interview with “Fox & Friends” last week.

Conservative radio and television host Mark Levin also took a shot at the former vice president and his “800 page book, you would think he was Winston Churchill.” Levin shredded Obama and others during his show, saying “don’t you damn lecture us,” before setting off on a fiery takedown of the efforts to undermine Trump and over 72 million Americans who voted for him.
