WATCH: Sarah Palin Interviews Donald Trump In Weird Meeting of Simpleton Political Minds

What the hell just happened?


Right-wing darling Sarah Palin evidently has a talk show and she used this talk show to interview Donald Trump Friday night. The 10-minute segment aired on something called the One America News Network, a network that is hard to find and whose production values are a cross between an ISIS propaganda video and a generic newscast you would see on an underproduced crime drama.

The segment started out with a crude montage about how terrible things are (of course, Obama), complete with populist filler involving infrastructure crumbling, stock video of unemployment, and, "millions of people flowing through our southern border."

Sarah Palin goes on to lob Trump a series of softballs about his recent experiences purging critical journalists and defending him from "gotcha questions" like "what's your favorite bible verse?" a question so tough its answer can easily be found in the crowd at any given football game.

"Since the day he made the sacrifice to hit the campaign trail," Palin sycophantically began, "voters crave the anti-establishment politician. They want results, they want a fighter. They want someone to fire all those politically correct police."

It's unclear if Trump has the authority to fire the "politically correct police" if such a thing even exists (it doesn't), but the rest of the bizarre interview went on like that: An unlettered Palin, giddy with praise, and an on-message Trump exchanging talking points and praising each other in a creepy dance of populist glee.
