While Sarah Palin appears to be receding from the limelight, it might be too early to count her out of the political picture.

Donald Trump, appearing Monday on Mama Grizzly Radio – a Web radio station that offers “Sarah Palin news 24-7 … the very latest on the Governor and exclusive interviews with some top notch Palinistas,” had this to say:

“She’s a great person … and Todd and the whole family. These are great people. And one of the things I most admire about her is that she took so much nonsense – lies and disgusting lies and she handles it so well. She’s tough and smart and just a great woman.”

So, would there be a spot for Palin in a Trump White House?

“I’d love that because she really is somebody that knows what’s happening,” Trump said. “And she’s a special person. And I think people know that. And she’s got a following that’s unbelievable.”

Though Palin was not present, she has given Trump the thumbs-up multiple times.

In 2011, after President Obama released his birth certificate: “Media: Admit it. Trump forced the issue.”

Later that year, after the two shared a pizza: “Every time you go to New York, you’ve got to see Donald Trump. … I approve of his independence.”

In 2014, after a Buzzfeed hit piece on Trump: “This nervous geek isn’t fit to tie the Donald’s wingtips.”

Palin even defended Trump earlier this month after he bashed John McCain.

“I have the good fortune of knowing both John McCain and Donald Trump well,” Palin told CNN. “Both men have more in common than the today’s media hype would have you believe. Both blazed trails in their careers and love our great nation.”
