Sarah Palin opened up during an interview about how she felt about not being invited to the late Sen. John McCain’s funeral after being his running mate in 2008.
Speaking to “Good Morning Britain,” the former Alaska governor decided to go after the McCain family for “embarrassing” her by not inviting her to McCain’s funeral service.
“I was kind of surprised to be publicly disinvited to the funeral,” Palin said. “They didn’t have to embarrass me and others, it wasn’t just me it was other people from our campaign back in 2008. It’s kind of a gut punch.”
Palin then tried to play the victim after being blamed for McCain’s loss to former President Barack Obama in 2008.
“It made sense to me and my supporters why John McCain did tap me,” Palin said. “But, yeah, once getting out there on that national stage and realizing that there are so many snakes in politics, they are so many snakes in the Republican party who were running the show and allowing me to get clobbered. They were looking for someone to blame for their really crappy type of campaign that they ran. I was a scapegoat.”
