While taking a visit to the White House to say hi to Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, Kid Rock, and Ted Nugent couldn’t resist taking a swipe at Hillary Clinton.
The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate posed in front of a portrait of Clinton with the two rock stars.
Um, yeah. We get it. She lost the 2016 election to Trump. (Cue laugh track peppered with jeers.)
The move prompted a range of online vitriol from Clinton voters after Nugent’s wife, Shemane, posted the picture on Instagram.
If it weren’t for Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin would be a nobody. McCain only picked Palin because he saw what Clinton did in ’08 primaries. pic.twitter.com/lv6IxwWFfr

Yes, Sarah Palin, that is Hillary Clinton’s portrait, hung in the White House.

Doesn’t matter what the political party is, it’s the White House, not a rally, and it’s an official portrait, not a cardboard cutout.

Letting guests take smart-ass photos with official portraits is beneath the dignity of presidency. White House should formally apologize. pic.twitter.com/IfYcvDCsx7

Sarah Palin standing in front of a Hillary Clinton portrait mocking her is pretty rich for a failed VP candidate/quitter.

Does anyone else find the picture of Palin standing in front of Clinton’s portrait as a form of taunt incredibly ironic?

Nugent in particular had made inflammatory remarks about Clinton during last year’s campaign, saying on his Facebook page that the former Secretary of State was a “devilbitch” who “hates everything good about America.”
“So today is the 242nd anniversary of The Shot Heard Round The World is it!,” Nugent wrote about his White House visit on Facebook. “Well well well looky looky here boogie chillin’, I got your Shot Heard Round The World right here in big ol greazyass Washington DC where your 1 & only MotorCity Madman WhackMaster StrapAssasin1 dined with President Donald J Trump at the WhiteHouse to Make America Great Again!
