In a peculiar Facebook post, Sarah Palin posted graphic photos of her own running accident and mocked people who believe attacks against Hillary Clinton’s health are sexist.

“Leave Hillary Alone, Bullies,” Palin wrote. “Aww, c’mon guys, give her a break. Anyone can be out of commission…. for weeks on end… whilst in the heat of battle for the highest office in the land. No press conferences for nearly a year? No scheduled campaign events for days upon days? No statements, no answers, no accountability, no problem. Layin’ low to run out the clock before November, but you’re SEXIST for noticing it.”

The post went on to attack the media for allegedly having a double standard.

“Good thing media didn’t hound the crap out of ’08 candidate John McCain for his decades-old military medical records or I’d guess them to be hypocrites,” Palin wrote. “Leave Hillary alone! All that email-evidenced yoga, and wedding planning, and cookie-baking-grandma-duty wears you out. Believe you me.”

For some reason in the post, Palin transitions to explain that anyone can have a bad spill, even if they purport to be healthy. She includes three bleak photographs of cuts to her face.

“Rock-running recently, I tripped over my own two feet and crashed & burned face-first. I recovered with the doc’s SuperGlue, and now any man who asks “what happened?” I’ll refer to as just a mean ol’ SEXIST bully,” Palin said. “The next woman running for POTUS has no need to answer to much of anything, for we’ve got weddings to plan, and Down Dogs to do, and cookies in the oven! So just leave us alone, boys.”
