Trump’s explanation for no speaking spot for Palin: Too far away
We all know you can’t get a flight from Alaska to Cleveland.
Former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin isn’t included in the official list of speakers for the Republican National Convention next week, and Donald Trump suggested in an interview that her absence is because she lives too far from the venue.
“She was asked,” Trump told the Washington Examiner in a phone interview on Thursday. “It’s a little bit difficult because of where she is. We love Sarah. Little bit difficult because of, you know, it’s a long ways away.”
Palin, who lives in Alaska, endorsed Trump for the GOP nomination in January. The convention will be hosted in Cleveland, roughly an 11-hour flight away from her home state.
