As reality TV star Donald Trump makes the leap from reality TV to legitimate politics, one-time formidable politician Sarah Palin is making the leap to reality TV. The former vice presidential candidate who is nursing her husband back to health after a devastating snowmobile accident has reportedly inked a deal to star as a judge during a daytime courtroom show.
Sarah Palin was seen for the first time visiting her husband Todd in hospital after he was seriously injured in a snowmobile crash – just as it was revealed the former Alaska governor will give Judge Judy a run for her money and host a new reality courtroom show.
In pictures obtained exclusively by Daily Mail Online, Palin appeared tired and tense as she left Mat-Su Regional Medical Center in Alaska last Friday after flying home from Florida where she had been campaigning for Donald Trump.
Indeed, Palin will have her hands full as she supports her husband, who faces a long recovery after undergoing surgery to repair 14 fractured ribs and a collapsed lung, and work on her new syndicated TV show.
The production has been in the works since February according to People, and Palin is preparing to meet with stations before setting off to film a pilot, which she will then try and sell to a network.
The daytime show would launch in 2017 if everything goes to plan.
It will not be Palin’s first time on reality television, having previously starred in Amazing America With Sarah Palin, which premiered in 2014 and ran for once season on The Sportsman Channel.
Palin, unlike Judy Sheindlin, does not have a law degree, but did spend years speaking her mind as a political commentator for Fox News.
The former governor of Alaska, 52, made her way unaccompanied to her SUV after spending many hours with Todd who remains on a ventilator in intensive care.
While many do and should hold deep respect for Sarah Palin’s beliefs and political positions, it does seem like a descent into the absurd that a once-prominent politician now links herself with silly daytime shows.
Still, if this is the career trajectory for which she wishes, all the best. And, of course, may God grant the Palin Family a swift recovery for Todd.
