CNN anchor Carol Costello openly mocked Bristol Palin’s account to police of what led to the drunken brawl at an Alaska house party between some of her siblings and other guests. In the audio, Bristol Palin tells police in her expletive-filled account that she was pushed to the ground and dragged along the ground twice by a man during could be construed as an assault.
According to the CNN host, “this is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across,” she said trying to hold back her excitement.
Carol Costello: OK, I’m just going to come right out and say it. This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across. Well, come across in a long time anyway. A massive brawl in Anchorage, Alaska, reportedly involving Sarah Palin’s kids and her husband. It was sparked after someone pushed one of her daughters at a party. That’s what Bristol Palin told police in an interview after the incident. And now police have released audio of that interview. It does include some rather colorful language from Bristol. Here now is Bristol’s recollection of how that night unfolded. So sit back and enjoy:
Cop: Tell me what happened.
Bristol Palin: My little sister comes over to me and says some old lady just fucking pushed me. She just hit me.
Palin: Oh fucking hell no, no one’s going to touch my sister.
Cop: Where was this at?
Palin: So we were in a limo. I walk back up. “Did you push my sister?” And some guy gets up, pushes me down on the grass, drags me across the grass. “You slut, you fucking cunt, you fucking this.” I get back up, he pushes me down on the grass again. And he pulls me by my fucking feet. And he’s the one that’s leaving and I have my five year old, they took my $300 sunglasses, they took my fucking shoes, and I’m fucking just left here?
Cop: OK. Where are you injured at?
Palin: My fucking knees, my face, where is my shit. I have a five-year-old in the car.
Cop: Where was the limo at when your sister came and got you?
Palin: It was right here.
Cop: So your sister came down and got you from the limo that was parked right here?
Cop: You went back up to the house.
Palin: I was closer to the house. Yes.
Cop: OK. And when you got up there, you approached the 60-year-old —
Palin: I don’t know how old she was.
Cop: OK. An older lady.
Paper: Some lady we gray hair —
Palin: Who wants to push my little, my 20-year-old sister.
Palin: I’m going to defend my sister. She’s 20-years-old.
Cop: And then a guy came out of nowhere and pushed you to the ground?
Palin: A guy comes out of nowhere and pushes me on the ground, takes me by my feet and my dress, in my thong dress in front of everybody. “Come on you cunt. Get the fuck out of here. Come on you slut, get the fuck out of here.” I don’t know this guy. I’ve never seen this guy in my life.
Sarah Palin: That’s what I don’t get. Why do these bad guys get to drive right on by.
Costello: I think that long bleep was my favorite part. We should point out that no charges were filed in this incident and in a September 19th Facebook post, Sarah Palin defended her daughter, writing part — writing in part, quote, “I love my Bristol. I have to say, this is a proud mama. My kids’ defense of my family makes my heart soar.” You can thank me later.
