Palin's Trump Endorsement In Presidential Primary Elicits Wide Range Of Reactions

Former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin threw her support behind Donald Trump in his race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, making the two eclectic and polarizing GOP figures official political bedfellows some two weeks before the primary elections begin.

"Are you ready for the leader to make America great again?" Palin said Tuesday at a Trump rally at Iowa State University. "Are you ready to stump for Trump? I'm here to support the next president of the United States - Donald Trump."

"He is beholden to no one but we the people. How refreshing? He is perfectly positioned to let you make America great again. Are you ready for that Iowa? No more pussyfootin' around. Our troops deserve the best, you deserve the best. ... Are you ready for a commander-in-chief who will let our warriors do their job and kick ISIS' ass," she asked the crowd to thunderous applause.
