Oh, isn't this woman just a piece of work?
Sarah Palin's 16 year old daughter, Willow, came under fire recently for lashing out via Facebook and calling a schoolmate a homophobic slur, and now, the former Vice Presidential candidate is attempting to spin what happened - and blame it on the media!
"People probably think that my greatest frustration is the lies that are told in the tabloids and on hateful blogs full of anonymous sources about my family, and there are constant everyday lies that we have to read that are out there in the public. But my family and I…thick skin…we can take it, you know…we can take what the haters say despite the fact that there’s injustice in the situation. I mean, look at the other day. Willow, finally, my 16 year old, she had had it up to here with somebody saying very, very hateful things about the family and saying mean things about her little brother Trig, and Willow finally responded and she used a bad word when she responded in defense of her family. And her response became national news, even hard news copy it turned into, so that’s ridiculous and I had to explain to her, 'Willow, there is no justice here but you have to just zip your lip and let’s move forward.'"
Obviously, we didn't expect much from her, but we just LOVE how she's pretending that the only reason her daughter would use such a word is because people were poking fun at her brother…even though the comment that initiated the exchange HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM, and was actually a negative comment about the Palin's reality show!
What a great message to send your kids - it's okay to lie, so long as it keeps you from having to take accountability for your mistakes!
Well done, bb! As always!
