Sarah Palin Didn't Give Birth To Down Syndrome Baby?

Sarah Palin Didn't Give Birth To Down Syndrome Baby?

On Friday, it was announced that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was chosen to be Republican presidential nominee John McCain‘s running mate. The 44-year-old Idaho-native claimed to be the mother of five children, the youngest of whom was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Palin‘s decision to have the baby was applauded by the pro-life community.

Here’s some new evidence Daily Kos has brought forward, showing Sarah Palin is not the mother of four-month-old Trig:

– On March 6th, Sarah announced she’s seven month pregnant. Even close members of her staff were surprised.

– Her water broke one month before Trig was due, but she kept a previous speaking engagement in Texas and then flew 8 hours to Alaska. No one on board noticed that Sarah was going into labor either. The flight lands in Anchorage, Alaska. Instead of visiting a medical facility that can accommodate a premature birth in Alaska’s most equipped city, she drives 45 minutes away to Mat-Su Regional Medical Center, right outside the small village she used to govern as Mayor, Wasilla.

– On April 18, 2008, Trig was born one month premature. Sarah returned to work after three days. (Trig was diagnosed with Down syndrome while still in the womb.)

Trig is not Sarah‘s son, but grandson. It was her 16-year-old daughter Bristol (pictured right) who was carrying. (80% of the cases of Down Syndrome are in mothers under the age of 35.)

– Family had taken Bristol out of Anchorage High School due to contracting “infectious mononucleosis”. Reports say she was absent from school for five to eight months. Mono can last anywhere from two weeks to three months.

Methinks Diddy has enough ammo for another verbal lashing in vlog #17! (Watch #16 here.)

UPDATE 1: The Associated Press has released an undated photo of a pregnant Palin, probably with her first child. And for kicks, this photo manip is so clever! This scandal is just calling out for Tina Fey to return to SNL to spoof all of this.

UPDATE 2: DailyKos posted a picture of Palin with what appears to be a baby bump. Check it out here.

    So what? So she covered up her 16 year old being pregnant? Who wouldn’t do that? It doesn’t change fact that they didn’t abort the baby when they figured out he had Downs- Syndrome.

  • Angeline

    That’s confusing…

    But ok.

    jared…….i guess i know who youre voting for….obama.

  • McCain for president!!

    McCain/Palin has my vote. Nice try Jared.

  • liberals are scared

    Jared, it’s going to be okay. Your guy won’t necessarily lose just because of Palin. You can back off the sexism stuff and just focus on being offended by the gaybashing you see around every corner.

    It’s a lie and Jared is just a scared liberal. Their hatred of this woman shows they are scared their liberal god won’t win. Calm the f down liberals and stop lying.

  • Just Jared

    Hahaha, Mike. Yes, a similar situation happened to Bree Van de Kamp (Marcia Cross) and her daughter Danielle (Joy Lauren).

    No… Bristol, the daughter, was pregnant, but Sarah, allegedly, tried to cover for her by pretending to be pregnant. When Bristol, allegedly, gave birth, the child she had was passed off as Sarah’s child.

    This sounds like bull$h*t to me.

  • me

    i cant believe you would even post this bogus crap. just because the democrats are all afraid now because a smart choice was made to select her doesnt mean they should start to create all these stupid lies.

    why do you think young people dont vote? because were sick of all the stupid attacking that both parties do to each other. its time to end that . sarah will be an amazing VP because shes real. it is what it is. who cares what has happenen. make your decision who to vote for then shut up. dont go around attacking the other person thinking ull sway the vote…cause u wont.

    and for those democrats who say she is inexperienced….she actually started in politics way before your front man obama did.

  • Besane

    This woman has a LOT OF SKELETONS in the closet! This rumor was not new— because of her ‘anti-abortion’ stance she couldn’t have had her daughter abort a baby she probably didn’t want, but offered to cover up for her. WHAT A MESS. Now it’s all out.

  • that is not right

    If you are so Pro Life then why not admit your under age daughter is pregnant and let her publicly be pregnant and have the baby?

    Why lie to the public and basically perpetrate fraud by telling your administration and friends you are the one who is pregnant.

    For someone who is running under the campaign theme of transparency and truth and non corruption.. that would be counter intuitive. And could be devastating for the race.

    Will be interesting if this is proven correct.

    And M.. no it isn’t understandable.

    Understandable would be admitting your daughter is pregnant. Supporting her in seeing out the pregnancy and then deciding to give the baby up for adoption or helping her raise the baby… lying to everyone and raising your grandchild as your child and having a child call his mother sister has serious mental and emotional consequences.. ask Jack Nicholson and others who came forward declaring betrayal and serious emotional distress by family members deceptions.

  • ace tomato

    If this is true, and that remains to be seen, then she covered it up to protect her young daughter. I don’t think that is wrong – it’s called privacy, and parenting.

    And M is absolutely right, it shows family commitment and a commitment to her pro-life values. This would be a scandal if she secretly had her own daughter get an abortion while espousing a pro life platform, but as it stands (and again, just a rumor right now) it is an example of her integrity, not a black mark on it.

  • Nina

    Yeeeeeeah this is fake. This doesn’t change my vote, and I thought this was an ENTERTAINMENT blog, ya psycho.

  • Besane

    Good going, Jared, you should keep exposing these people in your blog. This is a celebrity blog, not an entertainment only, right? Get over it Republicans, and deal.

  • well…

    If this is true WOW

  • McCain for president!!

    You people are so stupid. If this was true, it would have been out by now if it were true. The Dems have been attacking since the first moment they heard the name Palin so it wouldn’t have taken Just Jared to enlighten you.

    You people are running scared and I luv it!!!

  • anna

    Haha! That is complete bull. For instance, if her daughter was the one carrying, why would she go into labor?? Common now. Nice try.

  • jesse

    WHAT iS YOUR PROBLEM JARED? You know, I come to this blog because you are always a good person who leaves the negativity out. On that note, THIS IS THE MOST RIDICULOUS THING I HAVE EVER HEARD. How bout you get some confirmation before you post something so crazy. Everyone has the right to their own opinion, yes, but this is absolutely a new low for you. Posting something like this as fact to try and sway opinions is disgusting. How bout you respect the OTHER side for once. I’m so sick of liberals preaching open mindedness while they completely bash conservatives. I’m over it, and I’m over this blog.


    The democrats are shaking in fear! They are spreading malicious lies!

    Sarah Palin is the re-energizer of the Republican Party troops that defeated GORE, KERRY … and soon OBAMA!


  • m

    #3 kyle, daily kos is not entertainment blog! It’s a well-established political insiders’ blog!

    having said that,

    > 80% of the cases of Down’s Syndrome are in mothers under the age of 35.

    i think this information is wrong. over the age of 35.

  • innominedei

    fyi, Jared didn’t make this stuff up, he even had the source cited. so why u all ran to the conclusion that he’s running for Obama?!! maybe he is, maybe not. that’s his choice. come on, voting is a personal choice anyways.
    it’s his blog, let him post what he finds interesting. and to be honest, it is an interesting post, regardless of whose side ur on. after all, both sides should know more about the ppl running for the offices… be those infos malicious, truthful, patriotic or whatever… these are the things that give us an idea of the kind of ppl they are… then we can decide on our choice…
    no need for personal attacks… that’s a cheap shot and just goes to show the person that u are.

  • well…

    Here is where it matter. Her first statement to the American people as vice president nominee was a LIE.

    I will write again WOW.

    If she would do all this to protect her daugther than you know she used her power to get that trooper fired.

    I will write again WOW. What won’t she do for what SHE thinks is right?

  • JC

    That photo is from 2006, see Anchorage Daily News:

    I’m guessing they kept the teen on the downlow and there’s no images of her. It’s the photos of Sarah, announcing when you’re 7 months pregnant and nobody knowing beforehand, the odd behavior in Texas – flying after her water broke, and the removal of images off her official .gov web site which raise alarms to me.

  • kate

    Taking her daughter out of school was probably as far as she should have gone with that. But telling people that your pregnant when ur not is just dishonest. she should have accepted the concequences of people finding out about her daughter being pregnangt. A 16 year old having a baby is no big news it happens to many teens and families.

  • Calypso

    Even if it’s true I don’t see anything wrong with what she did. I Actually respect her for keeping the baby and for trying to protect her daughter.

    C’mon people, Try to have more respect for situations like this!

  • JC

    As for those saying “so what”, there likely is issues of fraud involved with insurance, the birth certificate, and any maternity benefits the state may have provided. There’s an argument it was noble to do, but it could have been illegal. And the nobility goes out when she decides to accept the VP slot, knowing the eyes of the world will be snooping into her family’s business.

  • jim

    How bout I never see any negative things posted about Democratic candidates? And how bout I am SICK of people like Diddy opening their mouth and saying the most ignorant of things. And you applaud that? Shame on you, Jared.

    The Dems have NOTHING negative to say about Palin so they’re going to try to make stuff up. Obama has already said back off of Palin, so why don’t you listen to him?

    McCain/Palin ’08!

  • TrekMedic251

    The source is the Daily Kos, so I don’t put ANY faith in its veracity. This is the same blogger that refused to break the Edwards scandal because it would make Obama look bad, then banned the blogger that DID break the story.

    “Nuff said.

  • Its really sad that JustJared is using his blog to better the democratic campaign, and make them look like the better ones. shame on this site.

  • jane

    The reason it’s important is because Sarah Palin WHORED out this ‘pregnancy’ and held herself up as an example and paragon of virtue. Palin took every opportunity to assert that she was keeping the baby because every life has value and yada yada yada.

    What she actually did though is illustrate why so many women do have abortions! Rather than support her daughter she HID the teen’s pregnancy–because teenagers can be embarrassed by becoming pregnant! She proved that their is a social stigma to teen pregnancy and perhaps she even realized that becoming a parent can ruin a young person’s life.

  • #32 AGREED!!!

  • neil

    How brave of her to insist HER DAUGHTER not get an abortion.
    But all irony aside, I actually feel good about her nomination. It isn’t because I want her and McCain to win but rather since the two opposing teams are now firmly set we can safely assume that in the next administration the Neo-con slime will be kept away from the levers of power. Whether you like John McCain or not he has reestablished his maverick credentials with this choice. This puts his team firmly outside the Bush, Cheney, Neo-conservative ADVENTURIST policies of the last administration. Yes, they are still conservative but as a Canadian I can live with that.

  • Dana

    This is just political mess and really, to use the daily Kos as your fact source is appauling. The Kos is a VERY left site that one would never use as fact. I mean if she were a democrat and Anne Coulter had posted this on her site, would you believe it and plaster it on the web? Come on, this is ridiculous….

  • test


  • Stephen

    Palin is a LIAR .. and someone with as thin a resume as hers I can only imagine what else she is hiding. The Republicans obviously did not vet her. She is so ANTI-CHOICE, anti-birth control and anti-condom it makes the Bush admin look like liberals. You people need to see how this 20 months ago mayor of 5000 in the middle of nowhere really stands on the issues before you give your support. She is a nutjob.

  • Besane

    If this rumor turns out to be true, or if Palin cannot provide the evidence to the contrary (that she indeed is the true mother), her record as a public servant is tarnished as a LIAR. I don’t condone a mother trying to cover for a daughter, but do you want her to LIE to you as a potential President of the USA? It’s all about integrity which she will be perceived to have NONE if this story can’t be extinguished. So, if this is indeed a bogus, come on now and show us the proof. She is parading her down-syndrome son as a sign of “pro-life”, so own up to it.

  • share

    The risk of Down’s Syndrome INCREASES with age, so it is more likely to occur in someone OVER 35, not under.

  • noname

    This is ridiculous! Liberals are picking at anything to hurt her. How do you think her family feels when they read this stuff? And her oldest daughter?
    JustJared is supposed to be an entertainment blog. I have put up with the obvious endorsement of Obama for some time, however this has just gone to far. I think that I will be finding a different celebrity blog to follow. I am extremely disappointed by the lack of professionalism demonstrated by this blog.

  • To M

    # 25, i think you are the one who has down’s syndrome. lol
    # 3 was saying justjared’s an entertainment blog.
    you need to learn the difference between “this” and “that”

  • Besane

    Oh and people of Alaska, I am sure the Republican “fixers” are on plane right now heading your way, looking to drop some serious cash to keep you quiet. THIS IS THE TIME FOR YOU TO CHANGE AMERICA. Don’t accept bribes!!!! You will have your children to answer to.

  • Alex

    I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I have NEVER heard of infectious mono lasting 4-5 months. Ask your doctor. The most serious cases generally last 2-4 WEEKS.

  • hhmm

    I believe it…these right wing christians are crazy. It keeps coming out they are gay having sex with boys…and all sorts of crazy stuff.

  • amanda

    Im voting for Obama, but this is the dumbest thing I have every heard. People need to be very careful with putting stuff like this out there. It’s one thing to attack her and other thing to go after her kids. You better get some evidence, other than piecing together storylines from recent Lifetime Movies.

  • A2B

    Jared, what are you thinking? You have reported this as if it were completely factual! Outrageous! So who had the womb with the baby in it to be diagnosed as Down Syndrome? Sarah’s daughter? Wasn’t this obvious, then, to alot of people, all of whom are covering up? And they would do this, even though it was the governor of their state, so kind of a very big deal? That entire facility, all those people? And her water broke on a plane, yet she wasn’t pregnant? Did she have a water balloon under her skirt? Take this down, Jared. It is beneath you.

  • Besane

    Personally I would fear for the life of the obstetrician who delivered Bristol Palin’s baby. Tell him to go into hiding if anybody knows him.
