Palin: We Don’t Have Time For Trump Protesters’ ‘Punk Ass Little Thuggery’

March 14, 2016 3:24 p.m.

Listen up, protesters: former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin doesn’t have time for your “petty punk ass little thuggery.”

Palin appeared Monday at rally for GOP frontrunner Donald Trump in Tampa, Florida, after canceling another Sunshine State campaign appearance earlier in the day. Shortly after that cancellation it was reported that Palin’s husband, Todd, had been hospitalized following a snow machine crash on Sunday night.

“What we don’t have time for is all that petty punk ass little thuggery stuff that’s been going on with these quote-unquote protesters who are doing nothing but wasting your time,” Palin said at the rally. “And trying to take away your First Amendment rights, your rights to assemble peacefully, and the media being on the thug side.”

Palin then directed her eye contact to the cameras.

“What the heck are you guys thinking, media? It doesn’t make sense,” she said.

Palin’s comments come after Trump canceled a rally in Chicago on Friday, citing “security concerns.”
