We reported earlier on how Muhammad Ali needed just 132 words to take down Donald Trump and his plan to stop Muslims from entering the US.

Well now we have Sarah Palin using 552 words to vociferously back him. We think... it can be quite difficult to make out exactly what she was trying to say in an at-times rambling Facebook post.

In a message that begins "Hey, Media", the former Republican vice-president nominee (shudder) likens the near-universal condemnation that greeted Trump's remarks to a "herd mentality".

Trump is, in Palin's eyes, just "committed to clobbering the bad guys, and putting the good guys first":

Trump's temporary ban proposal is in the context of doing all we can to force the Feds to acknowledge their lack of strategy to deal with terrorism.

I said it back in 2009 and got beat up by the Left but understood by the commonsense Right, and I'll say it again: if it saves innocent lives, 'profile away!'

Palin calls on Barack Obama to let the US armed forces ("the greatest and most ethical military power on earth") just "do its job" and "destroy the terrorists".

She also goes on to back a university president in Virginia who called on students to arm themselves as, and we quote, "commonsense", "courageous", and "wise".
