Former Alaska Governor and 2008 Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin sent a written statement to Breitbart on Thursday, saying that Ted Cruz should “delete [his] career.” Palin endorsed Cruz during his Senate bid in 2012, though she turned on her former pal to get behind Trump’s candidacy earlier this year.
Palin’s statement comes after the Texas Senator and scorned Presidential candidate was booed off the stage during his Republican National Convention speech on Wednesday, after urging delegates to “vote your conscience” and declining to endorse Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Palin insisted that Cruz’s refusal to endorse the Republican nominee will end his career. She gave an exclusive statement to Breitbart:
Cruz’s broken pledge to support the will of the people tonight was one of those career-ending “read my lips” moments. I guarantee American voters took notice and felt more unsettling confirmation as to why we don’t much like typical politicians because they campaign one way, but act out another way. That kind of political status quo has got to go because it got us into the mess we’re in with America’s bankrupt budgets and ramped up security threats.
It’s commonplace for politicians to disbelieve their word is their bond, as evidenced by Cruz breaking his promise to endorse his party’s nominee, evidently thinking whilst on the convention stage, “At this point, what difference does it make?” We’ve been burned so horribly by that attitude that voters won’t reward politicians pulling that “what difference does it make” stunt again. Politicians will see — it makes all the difference in the world to us.
Palin also passed the following video clip along to Breitbart reporters:
If nothing else, it is certainly fun to think about Sarah Palin sitting at home in Alaska digging deep into far-right YouTube videos.
