Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is known for being tough as nails. That’s why it came as a shock to her fans when she suffered a major gash to her face while out jogging this week, causing her to be rushed to the hospital.
According to Daily Mail, Palin slipped during her run and cut her head open. However, she remained in good spirits afterwards despite her injury. She posted photos of her wound along with a tongue-in-cheek message about “misogynists … questioning a female’s fitness,” referring to recent allegations made about Hillary Clinton’s health.
“Leave Hillary Alone, Bullies,” Palin joked alongside her photos. “Aww, c’mon guys, give her a break. Anyone can be out of commission…. for weeks on end… whilst in the heat of battle for the highest office in the land.”
Palin went on to say that it is “sexist” to question Clinton’s lack of campaign events and press conferences, sarcastically telling the Democrat’s critics to “leave Hillary alone.”
“Heck, even those of us claiming to be fit as a (seasoned?) fiddle, hit bumps in the wellness road. Even I. Especially I,” Palin wrote. “Rock-running recently, I tripped over my own two feet and crashed & burned face-first. I recovered with the doc’s SuperGlue, and now any man who asks “what happened?” I’ll refer to as just a mean ol’ SEXIST bully.”
We’re glad to see that Palin’s legendary sense of humor remains intact. Get well soon, Sarah!
