How Can You Watch Sarah Palin Interview Donald Trump? It Might Be Tricky To Catch The Episode, But It Will Be Worth It
Hold onto your butts, people, because things are about to get entertaining again. In a Facebook post on Friday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin announced that 2016 candidate Donald Trump would be paying a visit to the set of On Point later that evening, the cable talk show on One America News Network (OANN) for which Palin is currently a guest host. Palin added that she would be interviewing both Trump and "other candidates" (including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush) in order to clear the air about Trump's recent tussle with a reporter over his favorite Bible verse — or rather, his refusal to pick one at all. It's guaranteed to be an unintentionally wild ride no matter what the topic of conversation, no doubt. So when and how can you watch Palin's interview with Trump?
Unless you live in a region whose primary provider carries OANN, it might be a little tough to find it. Currently, OANN's "where to watch" page (which seemed to be down on Friday) lists a few available providers for each state and the Cayman Islands, with a handful of states offering the program on several networks, like CenturyLink Prism or Frontier. If your state doesn't carry those networks, the only other way to watch the interview through your television set is to be an AT&T U-Verse or Verizon FiOS subscriber, or have access to an Amazon Fire TV, Klowd TV, or Roku device. The show is set to air Friday night at 7 p.m. ET and 10 p.m. PT.
Still not seeing your provider? You might have to tough it out and wait until the interview itself is posted on OANN's YouTube channel afterward (feel free to watch some of Palin's other interviews there as well while you wait... don't worry, they're equally as strange and unsettling as Trump's interview will likely be).
On Friday, Palin explained in her Facebook post that Trump had been correct in "screwing with" two Bloomberg News hosts who had asked him to elaborate on his favorite passages from the Bible (only weeks earlier, Trump had claimed that the Bible was his "favorite" book ahead of his own tome, The Art of the Deal, which he said came in second). Palin criticized the two hosts' questions, indicating that favorite bible verses were "personal" and "none of [their] business", adding,
WTH? Lamestream media asks GOP personal, spiritual "gotchas" that they'd NEVER ask Hillary, or they'd feed the question to her and/or liberal cohorts before they asked it on-air (we know how these things work, lapdog media... the public's on to you), so good on Trump for screwing with the reporter. By the way, even with my reading scripture everyday I wouldn't want to answer the guy's question either... it's none of his business; it IS personal; what the heck does it have to do with serving as commander-in-chief; and these reporters trying to trip up conservatives can go pound sand until they ask the same things of their favored liberal pals.
Palin was dropped as a paid contributor to the Fox News network in June, after the network declined to renew her contract. Rumors immediately surfaced that the network had clashed with Palin after she announced on another network that she would not be seeking a 2012 presidential bid, while CNN reported that the former Wasilla, Ala., mayor had hinted to the split just months earlier, posting cryptically to her Facebook page,
I'm sorry Fox cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight because I sure wanted to take the opportunity on the air to highlight Senator John McCain’s positive contributions to America, to honor him, and to reflect on what a biased media unfairly put him through four years ago tonight.
Trump's interview will likely be either highly amusing or terribly concerning, and given his recent antics — such as attacking Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly (yes, again) and making claims that he was leading the field with black voters (go ahead, take a second with that one) — and Palin's penchant for equally alarming behavior, you might need to take a few ibuprofen before hand to stave off any pain from secondhand embarrassment.
