Ex-Alaska governor, failed vice presidential nominee, and twice-defeated Republican candidate for the United States House of Representatives Sarah Palin gushed over former President Donald Trump's supposedly incomparable loyalty during a conversation with Trump's daughter-in-law Kimberly Guilfoyle on Thursday. Palin also suggested that Trump is a victim of bullying from his political detractors.

"In terms of character of Donald Trump, he is a loyalist and I know that personally for years and years and years, he, he, uh, I don't have anything to offer him, and yet he has been so loyal to me and so caring about my kids, about my family, about what's going on in Alaska, and I so appreciate it. I, I've witnessed firsthand since way before he got so heavily into politics that sense of loyalty and loyalty, man. And that, that's one of the rarest virtues in our country, in our world today. I, I so respect that," Palin said.

"So, yeah. Good question that you're asking is, why in the world would people turn on him and they draw first blood when it's not coming from him? He's not picking on them," Palin added.

Guilfoyle, who is married to Donald Trump Junior, agreed with Palin in her response. She then argued that the 2024 GOP presidential primary is a waste of time because Trump was already president for four years.

"Right. That's the thing, like be realistic about it. And what do you, what do you expect? I mean, no offense, it's actually sort of insane that we have this whole primary, cuz let's be honest, you know, he was the president of the United States," Guilfoyle said. "If he was still in office, there would be no one running against him or primarying him. So now we're gonna spend all this money and time beat each other up when we should be focused on the end game, on the general election."
