Horrified Canadians Set Twitter On Fire As Sarah Palin’s Name Comes Up For Ambassador

That was quick. Just minutes after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday refused to discount the possibility that President Donald Trump might name Sarah Palin as the next ambassador to Canada, Twitter exploded with negative comments north of the border.

Politicians were alarmed by the news. Nathan Cullen, a member of the Canadian Parliament told the Country’s Broadcasting Corporation it would be difficult to take the former Alaska governor and former vice-presidential candidate seriously because she wouldn’t know the truth “if it jumped up and knocked her on the head.” He also compared her to “another Donald Trump.”

Another Democrat Party member of Parliament, Charlie Angus, characterized such a choice as insulting, saying it shows “how little” Trump and Steve Bannon “think of Canada.”

A headline in the Ottawa Citizen warned that Palin could “bring her carnival show here.”

Then the rest of Canada piled on the former governor from Alaska, and some Twitter users reacted horrified:

Others were mostly stunned. One asked Trump instead to simply bomb the country, and signed the tweet: “All intelligent life in Canada.”
