    arah Palin is under fire again, and not for her Naughty Monkey shoes. This time it’s because of a post on Facebook showing her six-year-old son Trig, a child diagnosed with Down syndrome, to reach an otherwise out-of-reach countertop, “step, baby, step[ping]” on the back of Jill Hadassa, the family’s black Labrador retriever. Besides the fact that the dog appears totally at ease with the situation and not at all perturbed about providing the elevation barefoot Trig needed to reach the kitchen counter, once again hypocrisy is revealed in feigned outrage when it comes to what’s acceptable and what’s despicable....

    Mediaite ^ | June 12, 2013 | Evan McMurry
    In a recent stand-up performance, Bill Maher made a crack about Trig Palin, Sarah Palin’s special needs child. He got heard—first by a conservative writer, and then by Sarah Palin herself. Ron Futrell, a former sportscaster and contributor for Breitbart, says Maher referred to Palin’s youngest child Trig as “retarded.” Futrell has a special needs child himself, and has interviewed Palin in the past about their shared challenges. He was appalled, not only at Maher’s word choice, but the audience’s uproarious reaction. Futrell later began heckling the comic over a Halliburton reference: I was in the back of the room...

    Here in Boystown, the gay talk show “Only@Brunch” recently mocked special needs, Down Syndrome toddler Trig Palin in the pilot episode of the latest “Downtown Cupid” production from Jared Hall. Because of the attention shined on this attack on a special needs child by catty gay men, Hall has released a statement agreeing the mocking of Trig Palin on “Only@Brunch” was indeed tasteless and unjustified. I, however, don’t feel Hall has explained himself well enough, because it remains a mystery why he chose to air this episode with the inclusion of the attack on Trig Palin. When taping anything...

    Yesterday, I wrote an expose on the Chicago gay talk show “Only@Brunch”, hosted by Jared Hall with co-hosts Bradley Thomas Balof, Jesse Budlong, Terrence Chappell, Craig Alexander Rathwell, and Brian Felder because their broadcast not only included the stereotypically catty and low-information attacks on conservative and Christian women (like Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and Governor Sarah Palin) that much of America expects from the gay community (as shameful as this reality may be), but really crossed a line of poor taste by mocking Trig Palin, a special needs toddler (pictured above), who is happily living his life and bringing great joy...

    Email Received | Original Date April 2008 | "Trig's Creator"
    This is long but beautifully written by a woman who many consider unintelligent and dull. It was initially written, obviously not for publication, in April of 2008 just a few days before the arrival of her fifth child, Trig, who was born with Down syndrome. In her email Palin imagines a letter from God to the family about to launch on its challenging child-rearing experience together. Here is Palin's entire letter: “To the Sisters, Brother, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Friends of Trig Paxson Van Palin (or whatever you end up naming him!): I am blessing you with this surprise...

    Palin Emails: A Down Syndrome Baby Will "Expand Your World" Wasilla, AK -- The media has bee intently focused on the personal and private emails former Alaska Gov.

    washington post ^ | 6/11/2011 | By Rachel Weiner
    Not long after she announced her fifth pregnancy, Sarah Palin faced rumors that it was her daughter Bristol who was having the child — Trig Palin, who was born on April 18, 2008. That falsehood sprung up again months later, during the 2008 presidential campaign, and it has continued to circulate on blogs despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. The e-mails released Friday show that the rumors began very early on. On April 6, 2008, Palin wrote staffers and her husband, Todd, “Sounds like The Bristol rumor was started and continues via Lyda’s office,” a reference to then-state Senate President...

    Larry Flynt, founder of Hustler magazine who allegedly raped one of his daughters and allegedly asked another one of them to marry him, was recently in the news lashing out at Sarah Palin. What’s his beef with Palin? He’s uptight over the fact that she didn’t abort baby Trig and even more bothered by the fact that now that she has a son with Down Syndrome, she dares treat him like she would any other child in her family. Moreover, he actually has the nerve to accuse her of having the child just for political expediency.

Such was reported by Britain's Independent Friday: It's hard to keep him focused on this subject, or any subject. His conversation skids about. He doubts Barack Obama would cheat on his wife because: "You ever looked at her? If he ever cheated on her she'd kick his ass....

    Sarah Palin’s son Trig is in the news again following the liberal blog Wonkette bashing her and saying her son, who has Down Syndrome, is “retarded” and “somewhat alive.” Now Hustler published Larry Flynt has gotten in on the attacks.Flynt is no stranger to controversial comments over the years as the head of the soft-cord pornographic magazine and a free speech advocate, but his comments about Sarah Palin’s son may be some of the most over-the-top remarks he’s made to date.In a new interview with the London Independent newspaper, Flynt rambled from topic to topic until he settled on Palin,...

    Yesterday, Andrew Sullivan wrote another post calling on me to do some reporting on the birth of Trig Palin. For months and months, this has struck me as a silly exercise, because other reporters have confirmed all of the important details about Trig's birth. But it was fair advice. I called up Mat-Su Regional Hospital, where, according to contemporary media reports, Trig Palin was born. I was patched through to the family birthing center. The director had left for the day, sadly, so I spoke to a unit clerk who answered my questions but politely asked for me not to...

    American Thinker ^ | April 27, 2011 | M. Catharine Evans
    The fallout from the Trig Palin firestorm at Wonkette forced editor Ken Layne to pull Jack Stuef's hateful piece on Sarah Palin's 3-year old son. Major companies like Papa Johns, Huggies, Bob Evans, and Nordstroms pulled their ads after a large contingent of informed citizens made their voices heard. Before the reversal, AT's Rick Moran wondered where all the protest was on the part of Layne's cronies: Where's Think Progress on this scandal? Or Digby? Or Steve Benen? Or Jane Hamsher? Or Kos? Or any other liberal blogger who can find the time to trash the right for even the...

    For the last several days, Twitter has been all aflutter with stories about a supposedly horrific attack on Trig Palin by the liberal website Wonkette. After seeing the uproar on Twitter, I remember thinking to myself, “Could this column from Wonkette attacking Trig (on his third birthday) really be as bad as everyone says?” Well, I decided to take a look at the infamous column in question and I am here to tell you that, yes, the column is just God-awful and offensive to anyone who doesn’t suffer from terminal tackiness. For example, here is the first paragraph from this...

    Enough already! I have had it with the sickening attacks on Trig Palin! First the partisan blogger, Wonkette, made extremely offensive, and stupid remarks about Trig. Next, the not-funny comic, CK Louis makes an obscene, gut-churning rant about Trig and his beleaguered mom, Sarah Palin. In his attempt to lampoon, he spews so much bile that the piece is unwatchable. These are bottom-of-the-barrel, dregs-of-the-earth, examples of junk media in America. There seems to be an agreed-upon rule among these hacks that it is okay to disparage a child and his disability simply because his mother is a controversial political figure....
