Sarah Palin gave congratulations and six pieces of advice for Kamala Harris. Harris will be the first Black woman to run for Vice President and overall the third woman (in Republic/Democratic parties) in United States history.
What Sarah Palin Advised
Palin wrote a lengthy Instagram post to the current Democratic Vice Presidential Candidate on Wednesday (August 12).
“Congrats to the democrat VP pick 🇺🇸,” she wrote. “Climb upon Geraldine Ferraro’s and my shoulders, and from the most amazing view in your life consider lessons we learned.”
She first suggested that Harris should not trust anyone that is new on her team. Palin added that she should fight to keep her old team with her. “They know you, know your voice, and most importantly are trustworthy,” she explained.
She warned that the media could muzzle her and to connect with voters in her own unique and personal way. “Some yahoos running campaigns will suffocate you with their own self-centered agenda so remember YOU were chosen for who YOU are,” she continued. “So stay connected with America as you smile and ignore deceptive ‘handler’ trying to change you.”
Palin revealed two new words that most people did not know. “OTR” is “an orchestrated campaign stop that’s meant to look un-orchestrated where you ‘normalize’ in front of voters,” she explained. She recalled that she forgot to pack her running shoes on a trip and the media made a big deal and campaign regarding her missing shoes.
“OTR’s get bizarre (try eating in front of vultures looking for the “gotcha” shot!) but my team made OTR’s the second most fun thing,” she added.
The “most fun thing” is “ropeline.” “Every single handshake and holler and hug and smile melted my heart, energized my soul, and gave me the utmost hope in the greatest country on earth,” she reminded.
“The ropeline is often the only way to literally touch those whom you wish to serve, so be sincere in looking in their eyes, understanding why they’re there, never forgetting they represent the innumerable Americans putting their trust in you to serve for the right reasons,” she said. “It’s who and what they represent that is all that matters!”
Final Parting Words
Her fifth point was to not forget the women who came before her in politics. Finally, she said to remember to have fun.
“This IS the greatest country in the world and hopefully you’ll be blessed beyond belief, like I was, with meeting new people from all walks of life and see just how great it is,” she concluded.
