Sarah Palin Martin Bashir

December 6, 2013 by  

Sarah Palin Martin Bashir, Sarah Palin on Thursday dismissed the attacks of former MSNBC host Martin Bashir, saying in her first comments since his resignation that she’s “used to it.”

“At this point, I’m used to it. That’s kind of a sad state of affairs to have to admit that I am used to it,” Palin said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”

Bashir quit on Wednesday for comments he made on his Nov. 15 broadcast during which he called Sarah Palin “a world class idiot” and referenced a diary of a former plantation manager who forced a slave to defecate in another slave’s mouth, adding Palin would be an “outstanding candidate” for such treatment.

However, Palin praised the media for criticizing Bashir’s remarks.

“It was refreshing to see though, that many in the media did come out and say, ‘Look our standards have got to be higher than this,’” Palin said. “Those with that platform, with a microphone, a camera in their face, they have to have some more responsibility taken.”

When asked whether Bashir’s resignation was enough, Palin said she has to move past it.

“My role is to accept his apology and to [be] humble enough to accept it and move on,” Palin said, referring to Bashir’s on-air apology during his Nov. 18 broadcast.

Palin said five or six years ago, she would have been “personally hurt” but now acknowledges that “attacks will come your way” and she feels “kind of calloused.”

Echoing her response to Bashir’s comments and apology last month, Palin added that those attacks are usually targeted toward conservative women and said there is an “obvious” double standard.
