Palin Says Both Trump and McCain Are Heroes

Despite the barbs Donald Trump and John McCain have been hurling at each other, Sarah Palin believes both men are heroes, according to The Hill.

The former Alaska governor, who was McCain’s vice-presidential running mate in the 2008 election, says the senator and the real-estate tycoon need to “resolve the media-driven wedge between them.”

In an email to Jake Tapper at CNN, Palin wrote: “I have the good fortune of knowing both John McCain and Donald Trump well. Both men have more in common than the today's media hype would have you believe. Both blazed trails in their careers and love our great nation.”

She explained that McCain “dedicated his life to serving our country, and in my humble opinion the sacrifices made by all ethical service members are heroic – putting it all on the line to defend freedom is heroic.”
Palin called Trump “a hero in another arena,” adding: “Trump is the candidate giving voice to untold millions of fed-up Americans witnessing a purposeful destruction of our economy and the equal opportunity for success that made America exceptional.”

“We're watching career politicians throw away our kids' future through bankrupting public budgets and ripping open our porous borders which, obvious to all us non-politicians, puts us at great risk,” Palin wrote.
