The professed Obama supporter and thwarted Haitian presidential candidate admitted that he has a soft spot for former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin. While at Fashion Week on Wednesday, Jean publicly announced:
“I have to tell you this: I am a huge fan of Sarah Palin, Cause she’s rad. She’s shrewd. She’s cool. Because at the end of the day, I’m for the people, because this is the United States of America… this is what America’s really about. Anyone should have the right to say, ‘Look I can do the job and this is what qualifies me to do the job.’…. Now my wife probably will debate and disagree with me.”
Wyclef reportedly confessed that he didn’t think Palin could be the POTUS, but dug her nonetheless – which is puzzling, to say the least. This is a woman who represents much of what he claims to oppose, and he spoke publicly about her like some sort of groupie.
And then there’s Charles Barkley, which really comes as no surprise whatsoever, who said he was jealous of fellow former NBA star Glen Rice for his alleged romp with the right wing celeb. In the new tell-all, The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, author Joe McGinniss claims (among many things) that the former VP candidate & Rice had a one-night stand back in 1987 during the Palin’s sports reporting days. Commenting on the allegation during ESPN’s “Waddle & Silvy” radio show on Thursday Barkley said,
“If that story is true, more power to Glen Rice… Well, you know, I have a thing for Sarah Palin, I think she’s hot. I wouldn’t vote for her, but she is hot now. … I’ve always said, ‘I’ve got a crush on Sarah Palin.’ I would never vote for her, I’ll always vote Democratic. I think you’ve got a better chance of helping poor people if you vote Democratic. … But I’ll always have a thing for Sarah Palin, and when I read that, Glen Rice is my new hero. He’s my new hero.”
It’s a mystery as to why either of these fellas would want to make such a public admission about Sarah Palin. She’ll have them to thank if her approval rating among Black Men improves in the polls. For now, for these 2 brothas, there’s just something about Sarah Palin…
