Why is Sarah Palin Not with Todd Palin After His Serious Accident?

Why is Sarah Palin Not with Todd Palin After His Serious Accident?

Earlier on Monday we at Victory Girls heard the shocking news of Todd Palin‘s snowmobile accident, which was serious enough to land him in intensive care. News media were reporting that Sarah Palin was canceling her events for Donald Trump to fly back to Alaska to be with her seriously injured husband.

We had been disappointed when Sarah Palin endorsed Donald Trump just before the Iowa caucuses, but since we’re wives too, we were instantly sympathetic to her plight. Many of us were praying for Sarah and her family.


Ted Cruz tweeted out his prayers for Sarah and her family.

But what’s this? On the same day, rather than being at her husband’s side in the ICU, Sarah Palin was participating in a rally in sunny Tampa, Florida.

Here’s part of what she had to say:

So wait — Sarah Palin’s husband is hospitalized after a serious accident (which she first called a “little wreck,” then changed it to “big wreck”), and that makes her appreciate that we must use time “in doing something so worthy, and that’s to get Donald J. Trump elected President?”

What fresh hell is this?

Then Donald Trump steps up to the stage and references Todd Palin like this:

Forget about Todd, especially now?

I am shaking my head.

Twenty-two years ago, my husband underwent some very serious surgery for cancer. I didn’t care how important my job was, I was going to be at his side come hell or high water when he emerged from that surgery room. I was the first one to receive the news from his surgeon that “they got it all.” I was the first person to present the news to his parents, who had driven from Wichita to Kansas City, that everything was going to be okay.

Forward to late September of 2012, less than two months before the presidential election. I had participated locally in campaigning for Mitt Romney, along with our Representative to Congress. But my mother passed away then, and suddenly all the importance of getting out the vote faded. It was a time when I appreciated my family more than ever, especially my dad, who was completely devastated at the loss of his wife of 65 years.

I have no idea about the nature of the relationship between Sarah and Todd Palin, and I’m not about to speculate. I’m just very, very disappointed that a woman I once admired and viewed as a Christian wife devoted to her family would prefer to campaign for Trump than to be with her ailing husband.
