Sarah Palin is known for being outspoken with her controversial views.

This time, folks are rolling their eyes at the language she used to describe the recent protests during a rally in Chicago for Donald Trump.


Sarah Palin Said Planned Parenthood Logo Should Be More Offensive Than The Confederate Flag To Black People

When speaking her mind on the canceled Trump rally in Chicago, where protesters showed up shouting “Hey, hey. Ho, ho. Donald Trump has got to go”, Palin had this to say:

“What we don’t have time for is all that petty, punkass little thuggery stuff that’s been going with these ‘protesters.”

The use of the word “thug” to describe protesters serves problematic due to the historical coding of “thug” to be synonymous with blackness and incorrectly using the term by describing someone/something that’s absent of violence.

We’re sure this won’t be the last development in the presidential campaign turned racially divisive circus called the Donald Trump campaign.
