Donald Trump and Sarah Palin Dubbed by Media as Pariahs

It is unfair that Palin and Trump are dubbed by the media as pariahs. The media is scared that Trump for actually speaking the truth and putting the issues against Obama on the spotlight. On the other hand, the media is deathly scared of Palin because she, like Trump, will attack with a smile.

(NY Daily News) Donald Trump and Sarah Palin have more in common than being mega-celebrities with their own reality TV shows -- they are both treated unfairly by the media, too, according to the former Alaska governor.

Palin rushed to the defense of the billionaire real estate mogul and aspiring GOP presidential candidate Tuesday, ripping claims that his platform consists only of doubts that President Obama was born in the U.S.

"I do have respect for Donald Trump and for his candidness. I think people are craving that today," Palin told Fox News' Sean Hannity.

"Trump is the one being really treated unfairly I'd say, though in the press when they're hammering him about the one issue that he has brought up and not been shy about, and that's the birth certificate. He's merely answering reporters' questions," she said. "Trump is running on the issue that President Obama is so far over his head."

Palin, of course, is an outspoken critic of what she has dubbed the "lamestream media," arguing that she and other conservatives, particularly women, are treated unfairly.

Trump also sang Palin's praises this week.

"I really respect her a lot. She's got a tremendous energy and a tremendous following. I think she's been very unfairly treated," Trump said on NBC's "Today."

Trump said he'll make a decision on whether he'll make a bid for the Oval Office before his show "Celebrity Apprentice" wraps this summer.

As for Palin, forming a presidential exploratory committee "isn't even on the radar," she said.
