Donald Trump's Ridiculous Excuse For Why Sarah Palin Is Not Going To GOP Convention

Does Trump really believe anybody will buy it?

Isn't Donald Trump supposed to be the greatest deal maker and businessman in the history off the planet?

Trump was interviewed by the Washington Examiner and was asked why Sarah Palin was not on the speaker list for the RNC convention in Cleveland, and he said she couldn't make it because Cleveland was too far away.

"She was asked," Trump told the Washington Examiner in a phone interview on Thursday. "It's a little bit difficult because of where she is. We love Sarah. Little bit difficult because of, you know, it's a long ways away."

Say, what? Sarah Palin has been flying around the country and delivering her signature word salad beat poetry slams at every rally she attends, but suddenly Cleveland is too far for her to travel to?

This is the excuse he's using?

This is the supposedly savvy businessman who's going to out-negotiate the rest of the world and he can't come up with something believable? Seriously?

It will come out eventually. Everything leaks from the Trump campaign.

I tell you, my splodey head is splodin' too because I was looking forward to her RNC speech. It would have been the mother of all Palin speeches.

Do you think she could have topped her "Golden Wrecking Ball" speech?
