Sarah Palin, former running mate of GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, filed a defamation lawsuit against the New York Times on Tuesday, saying the paper falsely accused her of inciting the near-fatal shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
“Mrs. Palin brings this action to hold The Times accountable for defaming her by publishing a statement about her that it knew to be false: that Mrs. Palin was responsible for inciting a mass shooting at a political event in January 2011,” the lawsuit obtained by TheWrap states.
Palin’s lawsuit alleges that the Times June 14 editorial “falsely” reported that she “incited Jared Loughner’s Jan. 8, 2011, shooting rampage” in Arizona where Loughner shot 19 people, including the severely wounded Democratic congresswoman Giffords.
Oh, Sarah, you are entertaining, kinda like Donald Trump. Problem is, you are at least as crazy as Trump. Thank God you never got near the White House, so we can laugh at you now. But Trump is sitting in the Oval Office and that is where we need to put our focus, not on a crazy ex-Governor of Alaska who couldn’t even finish one term without flaking out.
