In an interview on NewsNation with Ashleigh Banfield, congressional candidate Sarah Palin said that there’s lots of work that needs to be done in America and so she’s ready to “take one for the team, heck yeah, I’ll run again.”
Sarah Palin’s boyfriend, former-NHL star Ron Duguay, joined into “Banfield” toward the end of her interview. When asked if Sarah would soon become a Duguay, he said a marriage proposal was being “negotiated.” When pressed on the question, he said, “If you get us back on the show, I’ll give you an answer.” Palin, who became flustered, joked that it sounded like he was negotiating a hockey contract.
Much of the interview, however, focused on Palin and the impact that criticism had on her children as they grew up. She said that coverage of Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s adult son is “apples and oranges,” because Hunter is an adult. Hunter Biden is under investigation over his business activities that involved international schemes and deals.
Palin also said of the Jan. 6 hearings on the mob at the nation’s Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, “What the heck was anybody thinking to go vandalize our Capitol? Nobody can think that is right. It was atrocious what these protesters did, and anybody that encouraged it needs to be held accountable.”
She said that at “a hearing like this, there needs to be balance. There needs to be Republicans. Not just the two we have seen questioning but other Republicans onboard to do follow-up questions and present more evidence. I think it’s a given that it’s a one-sided type of hearing, but what we’re hearing is quite disturbing.”
Continuing the theme, Palin predicted Republican control in Congress: “All this polarization. People don’t want to hear the other side of the story. They’re not listening to what the heck is going on, and so many things are going on in our country that are not being beneficial to the people,” Palin said. “So much of the obsessive partisanship and the power-grabs going on. There’s a lot of corruption in Washington, D.C. I think the American people are so sick and tired of it. I believe there’s going to be a red wave.”
Palin is running for Congress against Republican Nick Begich and Democrat Mary Peltola, as well as several other candidates who will appear on the Aug. 16 regular primary election ballot.
