VIDEO: This Sarah Palin and Donald Trump Interview Is Exploding Across the Internet

Sarah Palin got a big, big interview late last week that has the whole Internet talking. She spoke withGOP presidential candidate Donald Trump about a his campaign and the anticipation of the interview actually crashed the website of the little known One America News Network where the interview was aired.

The interview occurred on Friday evening.

“I’ve said it since the day he made the sacrifice to hit the campaign trail: Voters crave the anti-status-quo politician,” Palin said as she introduced the billionaire businessman-turned-surprise republican frontrunner. “They want results. They need a fighter. They need someone to fire all those political [sic] correct police.”

Trump’s campaign, Palin continued, is a movement. “The ‘Trumpeters,’ ‘Trumpservatives’ are what these folks are called,” she said. “Everything about Donald Trump’s campaign, it’s avant-garde. He is crushing it in the polls.”

….But word of the sure-to-be-entertaining interview spread so quickly that hours before the show was scheduled to air, the cable network’s website had already crashed under a stampede of eager viewers.

The spiritual gotcha that had inspired Palin’s screed was asked during an interview with Bloomberg Politics reporters Mark Halperin and John Heilemann this week. Trump declined the reporters’ request to share a favorite line of scripture from the Bible — which he has repeatedly referred to as his favorite book.

“I wouldn’t want to get into it, because to me that’s very personal,” Trump said at the time. When asked whether he preferred the Old Testament or New Testament, Trump replied, “Uh, probably … equal. I think it’s just an incredible, the whole Bible is incredible.”

To some, Trump’s response suggested that he might not be as familiar with the Good Book as he’d like voters to believe. To Palin, Trump was “screwing with the reporter” for asking such a personal question.

Trump seemed slightly less insulted by the questions than Palin, conceding that he had, in fact, publicly professed his adoration for the Bible and added, “Frankly, I don’t know if they’re fair questions or not fair questions.”

He didn’t refuse the softball from Palin, however, saying, “I don’t know if it’s [a] gotcha, but [it] probably is. … That’s a very personal thing; I don’t like giving that out to two people you hardly know.”

Speaking of “idiots in the press,” Palin also patted Trump on the back for ousting popular Univision anchor Jorge Ramos from a recent press conference in which Ramos challenged Trump on his immigration promises.

“You schooled that radical activist, and it was the right thing to do, because I don’t think he’s going to pull that again,” said Palin, apparently unaware of Ramos’ Rottweiler tendencies. “Where do you get your guts for that kind of necessary confrontation?”

While Trump said Ramos was “totally out of line, screaming and ranting and raving”— noting that he is currently suing Univision for $500 million and that Ramos’ daughter works for his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton — he said, “Frankly, Sarah, the press was pretty good to me on that — I mean, they agreed with what I did.”

The interview was highly watched, for sure.
