Tina Fey’s uncanny ability to mimic Sarah Palin is as sharp as ever. She played the ditsy former vice presidential candidate opposite Darrell Hammond on “Saturday Night Live.” Fey captured Palin’s idiosyncratic endorsement of Donald Trump to a tee.

Palin’s real endorsement during a campaign stop in Iowa is pretty hard to top.

She rambled wildly and spoke in almost nonstop non sequiturs. But Fey was undaunted. She captured Palin’s essence and then some in a hilarious rant. Hammond’s Trump provided commentary.

“I’m here because America is struggling,” Fey began. “So many of us have lost our jobs at the factory, or our reality shows about Alaska. We’ve seen our own children targeted by the police for no reason other than they committed some crimes.”

The latter comment was a reference to Palin’s son, Track, who rough up his girlfriend while drunk and brandished a rifle. Palin, characteristically, blamed the outburst on President Obama.

In the same rhyming, sing-song style, Fey pronounced that she was there “for all you teachers and teamsters; you farmers and charmers, whether you’re a mom, or two broke girls, or three men and a baby, or a rock ‘n roller, holy roller pushin’ stroller, pro-bowler with an abscessed molar.”


“She’s a firecracker. She’s a real pistol. She’s crazy, isn’t she?,” says Trump in an aside.

Fey’s Palin obviously doesn’t know when to shut up, Trump bemoans, as she zeroes in on her favorite target.

“It’s what the mainstream media is spinnin’. Heads are spinnin’. They’re sayin’ Trump and his trumpeters are right wingin’, beer clingin’, proud of clingers of our guns. But he can kick ISIS ass, because he commands fire.”

“Yikes. I hope nobody is allergic to nuts, ’cause we got a big one here,” says Trump.

Palin gets very dirty when she starts talking about Obama. She’s even too blue for The Donald.

She ends her endorsement with her own pity aside.

“Guess what, America, I don’t really think this guy should be president. I’m just here, ’cause he’s promised me a spot in his cabinet. And I belong in a cabinet, ’cause I’m full of spice and I’ve got a great rack.”
