When you enter the public arena of any kind, you open yourself up to all kinds of pats on the back and kicks in the butt.
People in the fields of entertainment and politics know this all too well and know the bumps in the road going in. Singers know that there are going to be people that don’t like the way they sing and sometimes will say horrible things about them. Actors will have their fans that support them unconditionally and will at the same time have people that would wish ill on them for a bad performance in a movie.
Just look at the type of thing that professional athletes have to deal with on a daily basis from fans and the fan base of a direct rival. It takes a pretty thick skin to be in the public eye these days, especially given the fact that the advancement of technology has made it so that a detractor can tell you about how much they can’t stand you as quickly an simply as blinking one’s eyes.
Which on the other side of the coin means that someone that is of some fame that talks trash about someone has to be ready to get themselves poked with a stick right back and be able to take it on the chin just as well as the person they were dishing it out to.
Which for liberals, means that they don’t do that nearly as well. A famous liberal with access to media outlets could go on a five minute screaming rant about how horrible someone is and say the most horrible of things about someone but the instant someone lobs one two second insult at them they go into complete hysterics.
Sarah Palin has had some horrible stuff said about her and her family. The type of stuff that normal decent folks would not say to their worst enemy on their most angered of days. Some of the stuff that has been said about the Palin family if you said to members of your own family they’d be justified in never speaking to you again. However, liberals being liberals can dish it out, but they sure can’t take it.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin scoffed at ABC Host Joy Behar’s “crocodile tears” and told her to “suck it up, cupcake,” while citing a Breitbart News article reporting on the removal of Kid Rock as grand marshal of the Nashville Christmas Parade.
The former GOP vice presidential hopeful jumped to her Facebook page to ridicule ABC’s The View host, who reacted with outrage after rock singer Kid Rock called her a “bitch” on live TV during a Friday interview with Fox & Friends.
Palin was incredulous at Behar’s mock outrage over being called a bitch especially considering all the names she has called others.
“Buckle up,” Palin wrote on her Facebook page. “Save the crocodile tears @joyvbehar – if you can dish it out you sure as heck better be ready to take it in.”
Palin went on saying, “You sat idly by, downright giddy, as guests on YOUR show called my daughter a hooker? You’ve said worse about me (and other women), but I’ve got other things to do than spend precious time googling it all.”
“Joyless B – suck it up, cupcake,” Palin jabbed before adding a link to a report citing the time her daughter was called a “hooker” on The View.
Palin’s comments were sparked by a Friday interview where Rock made to criticize political correctness and brought Behar into the conversation.
On Live TV, Rock told Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy, “God forbid you say something a little bit wrong you’re racist, homophobic, Islamophobic… people need to calm down, a get a little less politically correct, and, I would say love everybody. Except I’d say screw that Joy Behar bitch, everybody but that.”
