Former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin took a hit at Fox News host Bill O'Reilly for suggesting conservatives like herself and billionaire Donald Trump would turn the 2016 Republican primary into a "reality show."
Palin argued there needs to be "unity" among conservatives in order to put up a fight against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a potential Democratic presidential nominee. She said Republicans are already suffering because "even there on Fox, a quasi- or assumed conservative outlet," hosts like O'Reilly are joking about potential candidates like Palin and Trump.
"He's talking about his show tonight, or the commentary on his show, and that would be, 'Oh, all these GOP contenders thinking about running for president like Donald Trump, Sarah Palin' and he names them off. He says, 'Oh, what a reality show that would be, yuck, yuck,'" Palin said. "Well the left doesn't do that. They take this serious, because this is war."
"Hopefully the media, even the quasi-right side of the media, won't be looking at this as some kind of reality show," Palin added.
