Larry Flynt's Not Sorry for Calling Trig Palin 'Brain Dead...Virtual Vegetable

"I’m not ashamed of my statement.”

Telegraph:

Then he says, apropos of nothing: "Sarah Palin is the dumbest thing. But I made a fortune off of her. [He made a porn film called Nailin' Palin, based on her]... She did a disservice to every woman in America. She knew from the first month of pregnancy that kid was going to be Down's Syndrome. It's brain dead. A virtual vegetable. She carries it to all these different political events against abortion, she did it just because she didn't want to say she'd had an abortion. How long is it going to live? Another 12, 15 years? Doesn't even know it's in this world. So what kind of compassionate conservative is she? I don't think anybody will want her near the White House." I am so thrown by the unpleasantness of all this I don't even interject.

The lengthy Telegraph profile of Flynt, largely revolting, can be found here.

Life News:

UPDATE: Flynt has responded on Twitter to criticism of his comments following this LifeNews.com story: “What I said is true. She knew that baby was Downs Syndrome. If she thought it would be something heroic or courageous to have this child, it’s her decision but I think she’s an idiot. I’m not ashamed of my statement.”
