Bristol Palin is not a fan of Tina Fey’s recent “Saturday Night Live” impression of her mother Sarah Palin, deeming the skit – which mocked Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump – “pathetic” and “desperate.”
In a blog post Monday titled “POLL: Who Wore It Better – Sarah Palin or Tina Fey?” Bristol Palin concluded that her mother, the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential nominee, wore the infamous sparkly sweater better. Bristol continued blasting Fey, saying that Fey’s “fake accent is like nails on a chalkboard.”
As of Thursday morning, however, about 81 percent of the 6,933 people who took the poll on Bristol Palin’s blog disagreed with her and said Fey wore the top better.
Bristol Palin continued to compare Fey and Palin’s appearances and added that her mother “trumps [Fey] in the looks department.”
Besides Bristol Palin’s overall distaste of Fey’s recent performance and appearance, she added that Fey’s “SNL” impression has gone on for too long.
“Saturday Night Live and Fey have been clinging to this impersonation a little too long. It’s getting pathetic. Its been 7 years! Are they desperate for content? Or just desperate for viewers?” she wrote.
This is not the first time Bristol Palin has sought to publicly defend her mom.
The same day Sarah Palin announced her endorsement for Trump on Jan. 19, Bristol wrote another blog post standing up for her mother, but this time against Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx). Bristol Palin wrote that she hoped her mother would support Trump for president after a Cruz spokesman told CNN such an endorsement for Trump would “be a blow to Sarah Palin.”
She added in the blog post defending her mother’s possible endorsement that Cruz’s campaign’s comment “shows arrogance” and that Cruz is a “typical politician” for negatively commenting about Palin when he’s shown clear support for her in the past.
