“I have the good fortune of knowing both John McCain and Donald Trump well,” Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, told CNN in an email.
“Both men have more in common than the today’s media hype would have you believe. Both blazed trails in their careers and love our great nation…
“Sen. McCain dedicated his life to serving our country, and in my humble opinion the sacrifices made by all ethical service members are heroic — putting it all on the line to defend freedom IS heroic — and Donald Trump is a hero in another arena.”
“Trump is the candidate giving voice to untold millions of fed-up Americans witnessing a purposeful destruction of our economy and the equal opportunity for success that made America exceptional,” Palin wrote, according to CNN.
