KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin made a campaign stop for Donald Trump Monday in Kettering.
She kicked off her speech thanking local first responders and military veterans for their dedication to service and protecting the community.
Noting Trump’s campaign slogan, Palin said, “we are so thankful that we have the candidate who’s willing and able today to make America great again … If we don’t get back on the (republican) platform, where is the hope for this country?”
Making a nod to Ohio’s “swing state” status, she said pollsters are “going back and forth.” Because she made an appearance on Bill O’Reilly and told him that she doesn’t believe the polls, she said to O’Reilly — and the crowd in Kettering that “polls are only good for strippers and cross-country skiers.”
Palin said that it comes down to getting out and voting for the right candidate. Calling on volunteers to go out and getting people to vote for Trump. She said though some people may not like Trumps’ “personality” or “political correctness” doesn’t matter “when you consider what we’re up against.”
Palin referenced voter fraud as well as planted questions from the debates, saying, “nothing is out of the realm of possibilities” in this election process.
Eight years ago, at Wright State University, Palin was introduced as John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election.
