Sarah Palin took aim Wednesday at President Barack Obama's nuclear agreement with Iran, ripping the president and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for cutting a deal with what she called a "death cult."
Things got a little weird at times.
Palin had joined GOP presidential candidates Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz, along with dozens of others, for the Tea Party Patriots' "Stop the Iran Deal" rally on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.
Before launching into a rambling attack on the agreement, she gave a shoutout to law enforcement.
“Since our president won’t say it, since he still hasn’t called off the dogs, we’ll say it: Police officers and first responders all across this great land, we’ve got your back. We salute you,” she said.
Though it wasn't clear who she was referring to as dogs, some took offense and said she was targeting the Black Lives Matter movement. "The dehumanization of our movement is fully underway. Now we are animals," activist Shaun King tweeted.
Palin then turned to Iran, charging, “Of course Obama still is insane to anyone but Iranian regime sympathizers.”
“Obama never even clenched a fist against a wicked regime where anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial is official ideology, and with state-sanctioned torture and killing of women just because they’re women,” Palin said. “Nothing has really changed, except Hillary Clinton back then she insisted that Iran is seeking nukes but now she says, eh, that’s OK. She spins faster than thousands of Iranian centrifuges.”
The former Alaska governor continued her rant against the president, saying, “Only in an Orwellian Obama world full of sprinkly fairy dust blown from atop his unicorn as he’s peeking through a really pretty pink kaleidoscope would he ever see victory or safety for America or Israel in this treaty ...
You don’t reward terrorism, you kill it.”
She called on Congress to kill the deal, saying the president is usurping lawmakers' right to review the agreement.
“The president doesn’t trust you and he doesn’t trust us. He doesn’t trust Americans to even change our own lightbulb of our own choosing and yet he’ll trust a death cult,” she said.
Palin brought up Vice President Joe Biden’s famous comments about how Obama carried a “big stick” during a speech on the president’s foreign policy.
“Well, little did we know he was talking about Obama’s selfie stick,” she said.
She said the deal is made even worse by the U.S. “gifting our uranium production capability, and that’s a mistake. Thanks a lot, Hillary Clinton.”
“So as Obama leads from behind — the skirt of his right-hand man Valerie Jarrett — then it’s up to Congress to close that window,” Palin concluded.

Seriously this is worse than that rant in Iowa. She must have been on something. What does Valerie Jarrett have to do with this. And calling black dogs, WTF?
Donald Trump's rant was no better:
Neither was Ted Cruz's:
And Phil Robertson's:
The only one missing is Ted Nugent. Thank God.
