Palin Defends Trump: I’d Rather Have A ‘Tough’ Prez Than One Who Can Win Trivial Pursuit


Former Republican vice presidential nominee and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin defended Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump Sunday and said that she would rather have a “tough” president than one who can win Trivial Pursuit.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Palin Sunday for her thoughts on Trump’s exchange last week with radio host Hugh Hewitt. Trump had since called Hewitt’s questions “gotcha questions.”

“I think I’d rather have a President who is tough and puts America first than can win a game of Trivial Pursuit,” Palin told Tapper. “I don’t think the public gives a flying flip who, today, is a specific leader of a specific region because that leader will change of course.”
