Earlier this week, #Sarah Palin made a surprise visit at the #White House along side Ted Nugent and Kid Rock. While the former half-term Alaska governor was there for a dinner meeting with President #Donald Trump, she quickly pushed back at news reporting that she bailed on her son's birthday party.

Palin's rebuttal

During the 2016 presidential election, the idea that Donald Trump was running for commander in chief was initially seen as nothing more than a joke. As time went on, the former host of "The Apprentice" gained steam, riding that momentum to the Republican nomination, and just months later picking up the upset win over Democratic nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

One of Trump's first high-profiled Republican supporters was Sarah Palin, who came out for Trump in January 2016, and campaigned for him on numerous occasions. Trump and Palin got so close that the former governor's name was on the short list to join the ticket as the vice president, before the job was given to Mike Pence. On Wednesday, Palin was invited to dinner at the White House by Trump, while bringing with her Kid Rock and Ted Nugent. As the internet went viral in trolling the threesome, a report was released claiming that Palin ditched her son's birthday to attend the dinner. As seen on her Facebook page on April 20, Palin is pushing back.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Sarah Palin allegedly missed her son Trig's birthday to "hang with Kid Rock and Ted Nugent at the White House" where she "cozies up" to Donald Trump.

In response, Palin lashed out on her Facebook in opposition to Daily Mail report.

"More Fake News," Sarah Palin said of the report in question. "I missed my son's birthday for Trump's visit? WRONG," Palin continued, before noting, "Quit making things up just to stir it up. I was home with my son, Trig, for his birthday."

Palin's next move

After she made the rounds at the White House and spent time with the First Family, Sarah Palin sat down for an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper. During the conversation, Tapper asked Palin about her time at Fox News, and questioned whether or not she was ever the victim of sexual harassment, in regards to the backlash of the sexual harassment scandal that caused the network to fire Bill O'Reilly earlier this week. Palin never gave a straight answer, and wouldn't elaborate on why she parted ways with Fox News once her contract came to an end.
