An interview for the ages, Palin to interview Trump tonight.

A website for a small cable network that will feature Sarah Palin talking with Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush crashed hours before the interviews were set to take place. “So much interest in the interview of Donald J. She is perhaps best known for the gaffes: describing North Korea as an ally of America, referring to Afghanistan as a neighbour, and failing to name a single newspaper that she reads.Palin started out the segment by saying Trump “made the sacrifice to hit the campaign trail” and said Trump fans could be considered either “Trumpeters” or “Trumpservatives.” It is the interview, that Tina Fey and Darrell Hammond may have dreamed about, tonight at 10 pm the interview that everyone will be talking about will take place on OAN television network, Sarah will interview Donald Trump.

The pair have lavished praise on each other in recent weeks as Mr Trump goes from strength to strength in the race to be the Republican presidential candidate. During an interview at the Republican front-runner’s glass-enclosed cocoon on Fifth Avenue this week, John Heilemann and Mark Halperin of Bloomberg Politics tried to get Trump to get specific.

On Thursday night it was the former Alaska governor’s turn to defend the Trump campaign against frequent criticisms of offensive language and grandstanding. “He’s shaking it up the way it should be and he’s leading other candidates and having to talk about the issues that average Joe Six-pack American wants to hear and wants to talk about,” she said in an interview with Extra TV. In an effort to create a safe haven of sorts for the Donald, Palin’s questions won’t tax the candidate with what followers of Donald Trump call trick questions. Despite the fact OAN is only available in 12 million U.S. households, the interview is generating tremendous interest largely on the drawing power of Trump. And she pointedly deflected questions about whether she would like to join his ticket as vice-presidential candidate, reprising her role as running mate to John McCain in 2008.

Their plain speaking style would be a mouth-watering proposition for many on the populist wing of the Republican Party, but establishment figures fear their platform would be light on policy and heavy on embarrassment. Rick Wilson, a Republican Party strategist, described the pairing as a “singularity of celebrity politics” that would send right-wing talk radio stations into an orgasm of excitement. “Donald Trump is not a rational political actor and so the things you might expect of a rational political actor are not the sort of thing you should expect of Donald Trump,” he said, after he had finished laughing at the prospect of a Trump-Palin dream ticket.

The interviewer then asked for a favorite passage with Trump replied that the Bible was “that’s very personal,” and “The Bible means a lot to me, but I don’t want to get into specifics.” Some took that to mean that Trump couldn’t recall a favorite because he really wasn’t Bible savvy. After the question was asked Palin tweeted that “Lamestream media asks GOP personal, spiritual ‘gotchas’ that they’d NEVER ask Hillary,” Continuing, Palin took aim at the liberal media for their softball questions dealing with any Democrats. This week a well-respected Hispanic journalist was ejected from a press conference after lobbing a series of awkward questions, prompting fresh criticisms about Mr Trump’s bombastic campaign style. He’s the hugest story in politics at the moment and sure to draw attention and ratings. (Whatever happened to her “Amazing America” series, anyway?) For Trump, the interview highlights his campaign style.

Couric: And when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this — to stay informed and to understand the world? Although she retains a large and loyal following, she has changed career since stepping down as governor of Alaska in 2009, reinventing herself as a something of a political celebrity. She has launched an online television channel, Sarah Palin Channel.Com, which claims to cut through the “politically correct filter” of the conventional media. Palin’s interviews with Couric and the one with ABC’s Charlie Gibson that preceded them revealed Palin to be woefully ill prepared to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. The candidacy of Trump is hitting the same notes that Palin has been playing since her run at the Vice-Presidency, win over those who feel alienated from the political process.

Back then she explained her expertise in terms of her home state’s proximity to Russia. “As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where– where do they go? She’s really a special person and I think people know that… like me, she’s got people that don’t exactly love us and we understand who they are and sort of forget about that. But really, would she put herself through that again? (That is, assuming Trump wins the nomination.) A second tour as VP nominee seems unlikely, given the difficulties Palin experienced the first time around.
