So, this happened:

More from Politico:

Sarah Palin assailed fellow Republicans on Friday for failing to support Donald Trump as their party’s presumptive nominee, suggesting that they feel “threatened.” Her message: You’re either with us or you’re against us.

“That gang, they call themselves Never hashtag, whatever, I just call ‘em Republicans Against Trump, or RAT for short,” the former governor of Alaska told attendees of the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, ahead of Trump’s address.

Those Republicans who oppose Trump, she continued, “want to take their [Denver] Nuggets ball home and stay home instead of vote because their guy didn’t win this time around. Now, you know, I shouldn’t call them thumbsuckers because they’re not all bad. I’m kidding. They are,” Palin said. “And Hillary [Clinton] thanks them because she cannot win without them.”

Actually, Mrs. Palin, Trump himself has been doing a find job of making sure Hillary wins. And you’re not doing so bad yourself, either.

You know, the best way to win #NeverTrump’s hearts and minds is with childish insults. Yeah, that’s the ticket!

It’s certainly going to earn Palin mad respect.
