Sarah Palin Slams Rahm Emanuel
Former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin slammed White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel after the latter called some liberal group as “f—ing retarded.”
The former governor of Alaska wrote on her Facebook page: “Just as we’d be appalled if any public figure of Rahm’s stature ever used the ‘N-word’ or other such inappropriate language, Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities — and the people who love them — is unacceptable, and it’s heartbreaking.”
She entitled the post as “Are you capable of decency, Rahm Emanuel?”
Emanuel later issued an apology to Special Olympics chairman Tim Shriver for using the word.
But Palin did not stop there. She asked what action does Emanuel’s boss plan to do about him. She suggested to President Barack Obama to fire Emanuel.
Palin’s son, Trig, is suffering from Down’s syndrome. She had included special children’s needs in her platform during her campaign in 2008.
