Sarah Palin has emerged from the Alaskan shadows to do something very on-brand — mocking mask-wearing inside an airport … treating it like a giant joke.
The former Alaskan Governor, and one-time running mate to John McCain, posted a video to her social media … telling her followers she was at LAX, and that she was “going rogue” by having her mask down while talking to the camera.
She seemed pretty giddy about it … and was clearly being sarcastic as she joked about being “outside,” meaning down here in the States outside her of Alaskan utopia — where she might be able to get away with not wearing a mask in public these days.

Sarah has demonstrated she does NOT like face coverings … and now that we’re finally turning a corner in the pandemic, she seems to think it’s cool to poke fun at it when in reality — they’re still necessary, especially at a place like LAX.
Airports are the key to unlocking the ability to go places, like vacations and business travel. They’re also a little dicey because people are in such close proximity to each other, both in the terminal and on the plane. So in many ways, it’s where mask-wearing makes the most sense.
If she’d pulled her mask down on the DL, that wouldn’t have been the end of the world (assuming she was distanced) — but her big show on-camera is ridiculous … though certainly on-brand.
