Former vice presidential candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said Friday she was banned by the McCain campaign from talking about Bill Ayers and President Obama’s controversial former pastor Jeremiah Wright during the 2008 presidential election.
“Though I was during the campaign running for V.P., I was banned from talking about Jeremiah Wright and Obama’s friend Bill Ayers, ” Palin said in a Fox News interview. “Couldn’t talk about that. Couldn’t talk about Obama’s lack of knowledge, and job inexperience, and the things that he said like America had 57 states, things like that.”
Palin continued, “in the campaign, Greta this is important for Americans to understand, I wasn’t allowed to talk about things like that because those elitist, those who are the brainiacs in the GOP machine running John McCain’s campaign at the time said that the media would eat us alive if we brought up these things.”
Palin asserted that Obama was subsequently elected because she wasn’t allowed to discuss the controversial topics.
