Donald Trump invited Sarah Palin to a White House dinner, and she brought along a man who publicly called for the death of former president Barak Obama.
Not a wise choice for a dinner guest:
Rock musician Ted Nugent, known for his song “Cat Scratch Fever,” was the guest of the former Alaska governor and running mate of presidential candidate Senator John McCain during the 2008 elections.
In 2012, Nugent said that Barack Obama should “suck on my machine gun”. He also called him a “sub-human mongrel”.
He had a choice words for Hillary Clinton too, saying: “Hey Hillary [Clinton], you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless b****.”
Another musician who supported Trump during the 2016 campaign, Kid Rock, was also invited to the dinner by Palin. The musician had famously said about Trump that the country should “let the business guy run the country like a business.”
During a Republican campaign rally in 2016, the former governor complimented Trump saying that he was the “golden wrecking ball”, she also criticized the media ferociously for not reporting more on Clinton’s health.
The White House hasn’t commented or issued a statement regarding the dinner party yet. However, Twitter had a lot to say.
Keith Boykin, the CNN political commentator, posted the picture of the group on twitter and reminded his followers of Trump’s campaign promise, saying:
“I’m going to surround myself only with the best and most serious people.” (Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent, Kid Rock meet Trump in the Oval Office)
While Obama’s former speech writer, Jon Favreau, made fun of how Fareed Zakaria of CNN commented saying that Trump “became President” after the US missile strike in Syria on 6 April. He posted the picture and tweeted: “This is the day that Donald Trump became President.”
On Facebook Palin posted the pictures taken in the Oval Office.
