Clift: Palin ‘Helped Destroy’ Any Chance McCain Had, ‘Basically Regarded As a Joke By Much of the American Electorate’


The Daily Beast’s Eleanor Clift argued that former GOP vice presidential candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin “helped destroy” any chance Senator John McCain (R-AZ) had of winning the 2008 election and is “basically regarded as a joke by much of the American electorate” on Friday’s “McLaughlin Group.”

Clift said Palin, “helped destroy what little chance John McCain had of becoming president, because as a vice presidential running mate, she had zero credibility. And I think if Trump continues to talk about how she’ll play a role in his administration, that’s not going to help him, if indeed he does win the nomination and wants to look like he has some credibility as a leader of this country. I mean, she’s basically regarded as a joke by much of the American electorate, I believe.”
