Donald Trump: Sarah Palin Isn’t Speaking At The GOP Convention Because Alaska Is “A Long Ways Away”

Seriously! Via Politico:

Sarah Palin was asked to speak at next week’s Republican National Convention, but apparently the roughly 3,000-mile flight is too far for the former governor of Alaska to make the trip to Cleveland.

“She was asked,” Donald Trump told the Washington Examiner in an interview Thursday. “It’s a little bit difficult because of where she is. We love Sarah. Little bit difficult because of, you know, it’s a long ways away.”

Palin, who lives in Alaska, endorsed Trump for the Republican nomination in Des Moines ahead of the Iowa caucuses and has campaigned with him on several occasions across the country, including in Florida, Oklahoma and a little closer to home in California. Palin also traveled even farther, to New York City in 2011, where the two dined at a pizza joint.
