Former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin took time out from promoting her television show this week to slam President Obama for not using the term “Islamic terrorists” to describe the perpetrators of the last week’s attacks in Paris.
“It is, in a sense, being a chicken,” the former Alaska governor said during a Wednesday appearance on “Inside Edition,” where she was promoting the second season of her show. “They’re so politically correct, and yet they’re so politically wrong on just about everything.”
She also criticized the White House for not sending a prominent official to a massive unity rally in Paris that was attended by other world leaders.
“We didn’t have a high-ranking official go over and unify with other world leaders and say, ‘No, this Islamic fundamentalism that is resulting in such terror across our globe; we’re not going to have that in our land,” Palin said.
The administration conceded Monday that that move was a mistake.
Also during the interview, Palin declined to endorse a potential 2016 presidential run by Mitt Romney.
“We need new energy, we need new blood, we need new ideas, and we need people who are really bold enough to go rogue,” she said.
