Sarah Palin Calls Trump Protests “Punk-ass Thuggery”

HeadlineMar 15, 2016

Former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin joined Trump on stage and condemned the demonstrators who have repeatedly, peacefully disrupted Trump’s rallies.

Sarah Palin: “What we don’t have time for is all that petty, punk-ass little thuggery stuff that’s been going on with these quote-unquote 'protesters,' who are doing nothing but wasting your time and trying to take away your First Amendment rights, your rights to assemble peacefully. And the media being on the thugs’ side, what the heck are you guys thinking, media? It doesn’t make sense.”
