Outspoken Republican Sarah Palin loves to make her sentiments known and on rare occasions, she actually makes sense (like when she admitted the "Just Say No" anti-drug campaign was set up for failure). But most of the time, as this SNL sketch points out, she speaks as though throwing a bunch of words at a target hoping one lands on the bullseye.
So it comes as no surprise that the infamous conservative would address the recent Chicago protests during a rally for Donald Trump in Tampa, Florida. "What we don’t have time for is all that petty, punkass little thuggery stuff that’s been going with these 'protesters,'" she said.

Using a coded word like "thug" to describe the predominantly black protesters has been called out for being racist. Opposers of the word contend that the same has not been applied to non-black rioters such as San Francisco Giants fans in 2012 who literally overturned cars and set things on fire because their team won a game (instead of crying out for justice over systematic oppression which started with slavery and continues today with instances like police not held accountable for deadly shootings of unarmed black men or harsher punishment for the same crimes as their non-black counterparts, FYI).
Trump was scheduled to speak at the University of Illinois on Friday but was forced to cancel when thousands of protesters showed up. With no orange-skinned politician in sight, protestors were reported shouting "Hey, hey. Ho, ho. Donald Trump has got to go" while some Trump supporters countered with "Build the wall!" The event escalated with fistfights breaking out and several forcefully removed by police.
