*In an interview on Wednesday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Sarah Palin called out how the media treated her as 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate compared to Joe Biden’s VP pick Kamala Harris.
Carlson said Harris is being treated as a “rock star, a celebrity, the Dalai Lama reincarnated,” while Palin predicted that “the media” would treat the Democratic ticket like “delicate pieces of China.”
When asked if she would have done anything differently during her campaign in 2008 when she was running with John McCain on the Republican ticket, Palin said “I would’ve gotten a lot better coverage had I compromised my convictions.”
She went on to say, “I would not have prostituted myself in terms of changing any of my positions in order to garner better press.”
“Yeah,” she continued, “I would’ve gotten a lot better coverage had I compromised my convictions, had I decided that I was going to go with the flow in order to get that — liberal coverage that would have been so much better.”

She added, “Remember, these Democrat candidates, they are treated as delicate pieces of china whereas someone like me, and other kind of hardcore common constitutional conservatives, we’re more like the bull in the china shop.”
Over a week ago, Palin wrote a note of advice to the California senator on her Instagram page.
“Congrats to the democrat VP pick,” Palin posted on her Instagram. “Climb upon Geraldine Ferraro’s and my shoulders, and from the most amazing view in your life consider lessons we learned.”
The lessons included “trust no one,” “fight mightily to keep your own team with you,” “connect with media and voters in your own unique way,” and “have fun!”
“This IS the greatest country in the world and hopefully you’ll be blessed beyond belief, like I was, with meeting new people from all walks of life and see just how great it is!” she wrote to Harris.
A week later, Palin is on Fox News bringing attention to the pushback she received as a VP nominee.
“I think that those who are just really, really close philosophically, even with politicians and those in the media, the media is going to treat them with some kid gloves,” Palin said on Fox News. “Yeah, it’s complete opposite treatment when it comes to the different philosophies and politics.”
