Sent two weeks before Trig was born in 2008, the email was signed off by ‘Trig’s creator, your heavenly father.’
The heartfelt message is among thousands of newly-released emails Sarah Palin sent during her time as Alaska Governor — and shows a softer side to the presidential hopeful!She, in the guise of God, writes, “I let Trig‘s mom have an exceptionally comfortable pregnancy so she could enjoy every minute of it…
“Trig’s mom and dad’ were told early by doctors that the child ‘may provide more challenges and more joy than what they ever may have imagined or ever asked for.
“This new person in your life can help everyone put things in perspective… and get everyone focused on what really matters. The baby will expand your world and let you see and feel things you haven’t experienced yet.”
“Trig will be his dad’s little buddy and he’ll wear Carhartts while he learns to tinker in the garage. He’ll love to be read to, he’ll want to play goalie, and he’ll steal his mom’s heart just like Track, Bristol, Willow and Piper did.”
Besides showing a more human side to the much-criticized Republican, the email also squashes rumors Sarah is really Trig’s grandmother. Conspiracy theorists, including a college professor, claimed 47-year-old Sarah’s then teenaged daughter Bristol was the toddler’s real mom.
Does this email change your opinion of Sarah Palin, HollyMoms? And will this help her presidential campaign?
