VIDEO: Sarah Palin: comments about Chris Christie’s weight are justified since ‘it’s been extreme’

In a bizarre moment during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Sarah Palin was asked about the unfair treatment of women in politics by the media, in which she agreed there was a clear practice of “sexism.” But when Tapper pointed out the derogatory comments about New Jersey governor Chris Christie’s weight by some in the media, Palin seemed to justify the comments by saying Christie’s weight “has been extreme.”

On the subject of sexism in politics, Palin actually expressed solidarity with Hillary Clinton who she agreed was treated unfairly because of her “appearance” and her gender. But her next comments seemed to show a detached air of hypocrisy, since she apparently wasn’t willing to apply those same standards of fairness to someone who is overweight .

“Governor Christie hears about his appearance,” Tapper noted.

“That’s because it’s been extreme, okay,” Palin replied. “It’s hard for some people not to comment on it.”

    Is it okay, then, to comment on Sarah Palin’s idiocy because it’s been extreme?

    I can’t stand Palin but I don’t know how you can argue against her comment regarding Christie’s extreme weight!

    Coverage of Palin is extreme ….. if media would stop paying attention to her, she might just crawl back to the ice flow from whence she came.

    I’m not sure what the issue here is… leftists have called her every misogynist name in the book and are excused because, well, she’s one of “those people”. When leftists feared Christie (before they knew he was in the bag for O-brand fascism) there were plenty of slurs thrown around.

    And while you 37%ers whine about whatever Palin does, the fact remains that she is a TV personality and you’re simply hounding a civilian. Your people are in charge and i you haven’t noticed, they are supplying weapons to drug gangs and terrorists, spying on journalists, foreign leaders, and American citizens, eliminating the right of the minority to filibuster, mandating that Americans buy a product from the government or from corporations, compromising with Iran (but not Republicans), etc, etc, etc. Yeah, your guys are winners.

    I’m not sure exactly why we have to put up with someone in our faces all the time trying to convince us she knows something, anything. But I do know that every time she gets attention on the internet, or TV, I feel dumber for have listened to what she said, or did today. I cannot stand the bitch!

    I don’t know what’s worse – a tubby turncoat who can’t restrain himself from eating everything in sight, or an airhead who had to attend five D-grade colleges to graduate and still didn’t understand that North and South Korea are separate countries.

    And Sarah Palin’s lack of intelligence, acquired knowledge and skils, and character is so extreme that comments concerning them are not only are fully justified but also mandatory.

    I had two computers both connected to an invisible router. Yesterday I connected a third pc to the network and, although the connection experiences for this new computer, among the original computer systems now says “Limited or no connectivity” and cannot connect to the Internet. Is it feasible that the brand-new computer is certainly using up too much bandwidth and it is therefore avoiding the various other computer from accessing the web?.

    I have a level in mindset, which I possess found to become useless. And I am planning on going back to college and getting a Masters in Creative Writing, because I enjoy writing and would love to find out more techniques to make myself a much better writer. We are concerned, however , this degree is not going to open up many doors in terms of the job marketplace (just since my psychology degree is unsucssesful to do). Any thoughts? Thank you..
