"And what we don't have time for is all that petty punk-a-- little thuggery stuff that's been going on with these quote, unquote protesters who are doing nothing but wasting your time and trying to take away your First Amendment rights -- your rights to assemble peacefully," Palin said, fueling the crowd's energy.
Recently, Trump's campaign rallies have dealt with a heightened number of interruptions from protesters, violence and arrests, including one incident where a man attempted to rush the stage at Trump's campaign rally in Dayton, Ohio. The man was charged in connection with the incident.
"And the media being on the thugs' side, what the heck are you guys thinking, media? It doesn't make sense," Palin continued, inciting the crowd to boo. "Well, you all get it. And I think the media and too many other candidates, they’re underestimating the wisdom of the people."
Palin's unscheduled appearance at today's rally came shortly after she cancelled her appearances at Trump's other Florida campaign events for the day. Her husband Todd is in intensive care after sustaining injuries in a snow machine accident yesterday.
