Did Bristol Palin just drop a bombshell of Harvey Weinstein proportions?
The daughter for the former governor of Alaska and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin is accusing multiple individuals of harassing her family over the years.
In a blog post on the religious site Patheos, Palin listed a number of media and Hollywood figures who’ve made disparaging comments about her family. Included in this list is none other than Chris Wallace of Fox News.
Palin writes: “What we need to look at is a real TRUE standard that needs to be set. But here’s a question. How do we pick and choose whom to hold accountable? Why aren’t we looking at all of the sexual harassment? Why are some things ‘just a joke’ for some, and serious offenses for others? The solution is to come together and treat sexual harassment the same, no matter what side of the aisle you may be on.”
As for Wallace, Palin takes him to the woodshed for making a joke about hoping her mom would sit on his lap during an interview. She notes, “When Chris Wallace was asked if my Mom would be sitting in his lap for an interview, he responded, ‘One can only hope.’ Did Wallace receive any consequences for this kind of sexual harassment?”
Palin points out that Wallace faced no consequences from his crude comment.
You can see Wallace address the comments below:
Wallace wasn’t the only media figure to be called out. Palin also criticized David Letterman, Mike Tyson, Azaela Banks, and Alisyn Camerota of Fox News.
Palin closed her post with a call to arms: “This isn’t a ‘Poor Palin Pity Party,’ I’m trying to point out a very real issue – as a society, we cannot have double standards on sexual issues. We won’t fix it until victims of all political stripes are treated with respect and dignity!”
I think we can all agree with her on that.
