Palin: Trump getting crucified for telling the truth

Sarah Palin rushed to the defense of Donald TrumpDonald TrumpPoll: Small convention bump for Trump Dems fret over Trump bounce Dems flirt with disaster on convention’s first day MORE on Thursday evening, saying the GOP presidential front-runner, who has offered her a spot in his future administration, is "getting crucified out there just for telling the truth.”

“He’s shaking it up the way it should be and he’s leading other candidates and having to talk about the issues that average Joe Six-Pack American wants to hear and wants to talk about,” the 2008 vice presidential nominee told "Extra TV."

Palin made her triumphant return to TV this week as host of One America News Network’s "On Point with Sarah Palin."

Trump has praised Palin for being "somebody who knows what’s happening,” and said he would “love” to have the former Alaska governor join his future administration in an official capacity.

Asked about potentially joining Trump even sooner as his running mate, Palin told "Extra" there were "so many good potential female running mates out there and male running mates,” but left the door open to the possibility.
