Sarah Palin called White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel a liar on Twitter yesterday, saying his comments on ABC’s “This Week” make him shallow, narrow-minded, political and irresponsible.
The former governor of Alaska is apparently outraged over Emanuel telling ABC’s Jake Tapper on Sunday that Republican Rep. Joe Barton’s apology last week to BP was not a slip of the tongue, but a reflection of the “philosophy” of the Republican Party. (WATCH THE COMMENTS)
“That’s not a political gaffe, those are prepared remarks,” Emanuel said. “That is a philosophy.”
Emanuel added: “They see the aggrieved party here as BP, not the fishermen and the communities down there affected.”
Palin tweeted Sunday afternoon that, “RahmEmanuel= as shallow/narrowminded/political/irresponsible as they come, to falsely claim Barton’s BP comment is ‘GOP philosophy’ Rahm,u lie.” (READ PALIN’S TWITTER FEED)
Barton retracted his “apology” to BP last week after an outcry from both Republicans and Democrats.
