Sarah Palin got a rock star's welcom in Tulsa, Oklahma on Wednesday as she told a crowd of 10,000 that America is 'going to go to hell in a handbasket' and urged them in her trademark twang to vote on 'Soooper Tooooosday.'
Palin endorsed Trump in a stream-of-consciousness stemwinder Tuesday during a rally in Ames, Iowa.
The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee was a no-show Wednesday morning at a smaller campaign stop in Norwalk, Iowa, as rumors swirled that a one-day political romance might already have turned sour.
But she spoke for nearly 20 minutes in Tulsa at the Mabee Arena at Oral Roberts University, calling the Republican front-runner 'ballsy enough to get out there' and challenge politicians on both the left and the right.
He also had choice words for Clinton's only realistic challenger, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
'He's a wacko,' the real estate tycoon said of the avowed Democratic socialist. 'He's a whack job â but he's beating Hillary Clinton!'
The thousands in Oklahoma gave Trump a raucous welcome and sustained applause.
Hearing a loud 'I love you!' from the group of supporters gathered in front of his podium, Trump squinted to locate the person who had yelled.
'I love you too,' he responded. 'Even though you're a guy.'
Trump claimed the rally was attended by 15,000 people, and that officials had turned away 5,000 more.
Oral Roberts university says the Mabee Center seats a maximum of 11,300. About 1,000 empty seats in the arena's corners remained empty while he spoke.

In other rooms HDTV was set up and people watched on closed feeds. Also I was watching on of several Youtube feeds and my feed had 6000 logged in, and my home had 2 of us watching, and so multiply this by the number of feeds, plus add the Cable channels that always broadcast Trump speeches I think at least 100,000 saw Palin and Trump today.
Handbasket? No. Ballistic missile.
Trump is carrying that basket.
Get out Sarah. While you still have your dignity.
Sarah...please go home and get control of you daughter and son.
There were NO empty seats, Corey Lewandowski ALWAYS has pictures of the crowds on Twitter, and they said it was over what this ‘rag’ says it was...
Palin was not speaking at the 8:30A.M. press conference/rally, she was to speak at the Tulsa, OK rally which she did...
It was a great rally, watched them both, as I always watch the Trump rallies and listen to what he has to say....
I just couldn’t get past the screeching.
A trump administration would be nearly as disastrous as a Hillary one....
Are you talking about the tone of her voice? I couldn’t believe it when I heard the clips today. High energy, yes. But also highly annoying. Just calling it like it is.
Yet, they are in their home and are being supported by them.
Other than talking about Trump’s success and his daring in calling it like it is, has she actually specifically addressed why she’s backing him over Cruz?
Two would-be monarchs trying to become president of a republic.
She is totally Judy Tenuta.
There must be some mistake because some guys wife posted Palin was a no show at Trump events today.
It's funny how people call Trump a liberal, but ignore the liberalism from the Republican Party that has never fought the Left on any issue.
