Sarah Palin defends ‘liberal target’ Miss California

Sarah Palin Washington, May 14 (ANI): Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has defended controversy laden Miss California Carrie Prejean against “the liberal onslaught of malicious attacks.”

Carrie was speculated to have lost the Miss USA crown after she spoke against same sex marriages while responding to a question during the competition.

The 21-year-old, who bagged the first runner-up title on April 19, had evoked a mixed reaction for her anti-gay marriage answer, with some crying out for her title to be stripped off her while conservatives hailed her as a star.

And now, the former vice-presidential nominee for the 2008 United States presidential election has praised the beauty for standing tall for her beliefs and not succumbing to “politically-motivated attacks”.

“I respect Carrie for standing strong and staying true to herself, and for not letting those who disagree with her deny her protection under the nation’s First Amendment Rights. Our Constitution protects us all - not just those who agree with the far left,” the Politico quoted Palin as saying.

She added: “What I find so remarkable is that these politically-motivated attacks fail to show that what Carrie and I believe is also what President Obama and Secretary Clinton believe - marriage is between a man and a woman.”

Palin, 45, further commended Donald Trump, who owns the Miss USA organization, for not taking away Carrie’s Miss California crown after her nude picture was leaked online following her answer in the contest. (ANI)
