'Give Me a Break’: Bristol Palin Has a Message for the GOP ‘Outrage Industry’ Blasting Donald Trump

Bristol Palin turned to her blog Monday to pen a scathing entry against the "GOP 'outrage industry'" for its treatment of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump.

"It’s official," she wrote. "I used to use this blog to point out how liberals use the 'outrage industry' to manipulate people and keep their power. Now Republicans are just as bad."

Palin's chief target was RedState editor Erick Erickson who rescinded an invite for Trump to speak at a conservative gathering over the weekend after the real estate tycoon seemingly suggested Fox News host Megyn Kelly pressed him at the GOP debate because she was menstruating.

In her blog, Palin made note of previous disparaging comments Erickson had made himself, rhetorically asking, "Want to learn some 'lessons in sexual and political decency' from Erickson?"

"I don’t endorse everything Donald Trump says or does… Mainly because I actually have to work for a living and I don’t pay as much attention to politics as professional pundits. But I know that I hate the 'politics of outrage' that people engage in," Palin wrote. "Give me a break."

The daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin took a jab at Fox News.

"We only have so many opportunities to hear from the fifty million candidates who are apparently running for President. And we get the Fox moderators asking questions that the New York Times applauds? Please. Let’s don’t use the Democratic 'war on women' talking points when we have ISIS to worry about," she wrote.

Palin cited previous comments made by Fox News host Chris Wallace and Chairman Roger Ailes in an attempt to prove the network is engaged in hypocrisy.

She wrote, "Back in 2010, Chris Wallace joked about having my Mom sit on his lap during an interview. In 2011, Roger Ailes said, 'I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings.'"

"Fox and Erickson need to get off their high horse on how outraged they are NOW about sexism and decency," Palin continued, concluding, "Let’s focus on winning the election, not winning accolades from the New York Times."
