    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...

    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.

    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...

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....

In a matter of hours, citizen activists rallied around the righteous cause of condemning a vile Wonkette attack against Governor Sarah Palin’s three-year-old son, Trig with astonishing results. Best of all, and contrary to Andrew Sullivan feeling all “queasy,” this was not a “Palinista” uprising. (Heads up: When it comes to Trig Palin, Sullivan is nothing more than Wonkette with professorial elbow patches.) Decent people of all political stripes, including some in the media, put...

The piece lampooned what's known as the "cult of Trig," the rabid fans of Sarah Palin's Down Syndrome youngest child, and accused Palin of using her now three-year-old son as a prop. Needless to say, many readers were offended by Jack Stuef's post and an online movement started to defund Wonkette by targeting its advertisers. The problem is that Wonkette has a lot of contextual ads, creating a headache for brands targeted in the...

The Internet is rife with brutal caricatures of Trig and hateful invective against Sarah - simply for opting her "right to choose" - but choosing life over death. That grown-up men and women would attack a vulnerable and defenseless baby is unbelievable - except that we live in a culture where Democrat daughters are treated with dignity and Republican daughters prompt jokes about rape and incest.

    The attempts to marginalize Sarah Palin with insults, false charges and crude jokes are clearly because they fear her and they hate her. Yes, some left-wing pundits like Katie Couric were able to trip her up due to her lack of experience in the big leagues of talking heads and vicious, left-wing blogs and journalists, but let no-one forget that it was Joe Biden who made a fool of himself in his debate with Palin. During the debate, Biden made 17 documented errors of fact on the Consitution and on recent history, particularly in foreign affairs, while Sarah made none.

    In front of an audience of nearly 3,000 anti-abortion rights advocates in Evansville, Ind., Palin described in detail how she struggled with her fifth pregnancy last year and choked up when she spoke about Trig's birth. "It was a time when I had to ask myself was I gonna walk the walk or I was gonna talk the talk," Palin said. She said she learned she was pregnant with Trig while she was out of the state at an oil and gas conference. "There, just for a fleeting moment, I thought, I knew, nobody knows me here. Nobody would ever...

    An obligatory link on a day when she’s ripping “pathetic” smearmongering bloggers in the pages of Esquire and the Trig Truther-in-chief is poised to win Best Blog. She serves: [I]s your paper really still pursuing the sensational lie that I am not Trig’s mother? Is it true you have a reporter still bothering my state office, my very busy doctor (who’s already set the record straight for you), and the school district, in pursuit of your ridiculous conspiracy?…Come on Mr. Doyle and Mr. Dougherty, I so desperately want to have even a tiny bit of faith in the ADN. And...

    There really are no words, though I suppose we'll manage to find some. Wonkette, which bills itself as "the DC Gossip," and is the creation of Ana Marie Cox, now gone on to bigger things at Time, has this photograph up of Trig Palin, dressed for Halloween as an elephant and being held in the loving embrace of one of his sisters. [H/t reader Damian G.] Wonkette appends this comment, suggesting—and there really is no way to sugar coat it— that given the choice Trig would wish he had been aborted:
  • Liberals Mock Trig Palin! (Mega Barf Alert)

    Only liberals would be so cruel as to make fun of a baby in his Halloween costume. On this blog, Wonkette, the author writes this with a picture of baby Trig in his elephant costume: Hey Kids, Check Out Lil’ Trigger In His Elephant Costume Little baby Trig must be so glad he wasn’t aborted for this, his first Halloween, because his parents dressed him up like a political party symbol to be carried around at snarling political events. Aww. Isn’t life just grand? The comments after this are absolutely repulsive. Their disrespect for human life and a disabled...

    Sarah Palin's bright-eyed daughter Piper melted hearts at a Colorado ice-cream shop as the veep candidate satisfied the girl's sweet tooth during a campaign stop. The beaming 7-year-old, who came in holding baby brother Trig in his removable car seat, gobbled up a dish of birthday-cake ice cream from the Cold Stone Creamery in Colorado Springs Sunday night. The Palins - daughter Willow, 14, was there, too - greeted several excited customers and posed for photos. Palin paid cash for the treats and threw a little extra in the tip jar before retreating to her hotel. She seems to have...
