Sarah Palin was maybe supposed to talk about duck calls on her “Amazing America” series when she talked to Mario Lopez for “Extra.” But the former vice-presidential candidate seemed far more interested in talking Hillary Clinton and politics.
The main topic of the conversation in an interview about Palin’s episode on a duck-calling competition in Arkansas was the pregnancy of Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea.
What does Palin think about Clinton becoming a grandmother she mostly hopes that having another generation on the way will “broaden [Clinton’s] worldview.”
“I think anyone who is a grandparent really starts looking at even further down the road — you know, we start thinking about things like $17 trillion debt that our nation is under,” Palin explains to Lopez. “We’re gonna hand that to our grandkids for them to pay off for our shortsighted thinking and spending today? That’s not right, that’s not fair to our grandkids. Hopefully she’ll start thinking along those terms too.”
This likely isn’t what most new grandparents think about — although maybe they do in political circles.
In addition to thoughts on the budget, Palin expressed a hope that Clinton might rethink her position on abortion as well.
“Just knowing that her daughter Chelsea is pregnant with a baby — it’s a real baby! It’s not some disposable something,” Palin says. “Those who … are in this position now as a parent or grandparent, they realize that sanctity of life — how innocent, how precious it is. And of all places, it should be in the womb that these babies are protected.”
