Wow, it sure isn’t easy having Sarah Palin as your mom—just ask Bristol!

Former Palin campaign aide Frank Bailey, whose new tell-all book Blind Allegiance just hit shelves, says he witnessed Sarah “mocking, berating and terrifying” Bristol, according to In Touch.

Bailey explains that Bristol’s revelation that she was pregnant demonstrated how the mother-daughter duo were often at odds. Sarah reportedly said to him at the time, “I left the decision [to keep or abort] to her, and Bristol wants to keep it.” But Sarah soon decided she wanted to bury the story, so she suggested to Bristol that she give up the baby for adoption–to Sarah! (Bristol’s ex, Levi Johnson, has also previously said “Sarah kept mentioning this plan.”)

In his book, Bailey claims Sarah basically abandoned her children while she was on the vice presidential campaign trail, not seeing them for weeks at a time. “I recall one day when Bristol phoned…crying while Sarah sat in my office,” remembers Bailey. “Sarah rolled her eyes. I felt pained for Bristol.”

He adds, “The Bristol I knew was a kind child, thrown into the cauldron of politics against her will.”

But did Sarah care about her kids’ longing for a mom who cared and who was around? Nope! “Bristol’s mad at me,” Sarah emailed Bailey. “Says this isn’t fun. Too bad.” Yikes!

I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours as of late, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is lovely worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the web might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

Seriously, what is going on with this website? If Bristol and her mom had such a terrible relationship, she wouldn’t be riding on a freaking bus with her up the east coast. She’s a 20 year old woman with a young son. She doesn’t need to be with her mom. She obviously wants to be with her. So stop with these ridiculous stories you’ve been posting lately about the Palin’s. You’re really lowering yourselves.

Most people realize this is HOLLYWOOD talking. Just the same, in the final analysis, SARAH is NOT who she claims to be. The pieces of the puzzle are coming together. I think it is healthy, to see who SARAH really is, since she could be the President of the US.

“Obviously wants to be with her”? See: sour look on Bristol’s face at Rolling Thunder rally. See: sour look on Bristol’s face at end of parade. See: smile on Bristol’s face when hugging sister Willow. See: no Bristol anywhere else. Gone home to Tripp?

Bristol was NOT with Sarah and Family on Bus Tour, Willow and Piper were. Nor was little son Trigg. Too much trouble for Sarah to have TWO toddlers on her “mock campaing trip” You hardly ever see the little guy anymore, and during her campaign for VP, you’d see little Piper taking care of the little one….Sarah is NOT a mama grizzly, she’s a mommy hamster who would rather eat her young than nurture them…..
