The candidacy of Donald Trump highlighted the wide political divide in the United States, as liberals and conservatives continued to move further apart. While millions of Americans have expressed concern since Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, others continue to be supportive, including half-term Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Palin speaks

It was just last January when Sarah Palin officially endorsed Donald Trump for president, becoming one of the first high-profiled Republicans to do make their support public.

Over the following 11 months, Palin would appear on the campaign trail for the billionaire real estate mogul, becoming so close to Trump that her name was even on a short list to join the Republican ticket. After Trump's election win last month, Palin has reportedly been considered for several cabinet positions, including Secretary of Interior, and Secretary of Veterans Affairs. One area where Palin has aligned closest with Trump has been in their attack on the media, which was on display in controversial fashion on her offical Facebook page on December 19.

While posting a link to the right-wing website "Young Conservatives" in an attack on the New York Times, Sarah Palin also added a quote that quickly came under fire. "NYT: I ain't saying you a golddigger, but there's a reason you messin' with broke, broke, broke," Palin posted. The comment is actually a quote of the Kanye West song "Golddigger." In the song, the lyrics add the "N-word," which Palin stopped just sure of writing on her social media account.

Palin's use of the website "Young Conservatives" has become frequent on her Facebook page, as she has also contributed to the outlet at times in the past. It's unknown if Palin, or her possible social media team, will make any alterations over the post moving forward.
