Sarah Palin: Tripp Johnston Being Well Taken Care Of

Sarah Palin phoned up People magazine earlier today to publicly share how proud she is of her teenage daughter, who gave birth to Tripp Johnston three days ago.

The 44-year-old Alaska Governor had this to share about her eldest daughter Bristol and her fiancé Levi Johnston: “You need to know that both Levi and Bristol are working their butts off to parent and going to school and working at the same time. They are certainly not high school dropouts. [Any suggestion otherwise] harms Bristol‘s reputation and Levi‘s reputation and their chances for good work opportunities.”

Levi is studying to be an electrician.

    And that ladies and lefties is called taking responsability for your actions. Something the left of our world doesn’t understand. It is so much easier to just get an abortion and forget the whole incident right? No wonder there are those that are slamming them for making the right decision, it makes all the losers look even less than they already do!

  • BECKY SMITH

    Yes and who is taking care of their son while their are at work, school
    etc.. While it takes a full time mom to take of him.. So take a lesson from your mom Bristol … hand him off to someone else .. like maybe
    your younger sister since we all know that doing all that their will be
    no time for baby ..They already are losers who didn’t even finish school.
    Why not finish high school first Levi than maybe they will take you seriously..graduating high school will be better for your reputation..

  • lala

    that slut should have thought of that before she got pregnant!!!

  • lala

    BUMP!

    “both Levi and Bristol are working their butts off to parent”
    Excuse me but the baby is only three days old. Let’s see how much they parent when the kid does more than eat, sleep and poop.

    “going to school and working at the same time”
    LOL this one is too easy.

    “They are certainly not high school dropouts”
    So did they graduate? No. Then they are dropouts.

    “harms Bristol’s reputation and Levi’s reputation and their chances for good work opportunities”
    I think both grandmothers are doing more harm to Bristol and Levi’s reputation than anything else.

    Sarah Palin didn’t give this many interviews when she was running for VP, now she won’t shut up! What a piece of work!

  • LuckyL

    Yep, that makes it okay. I forgot, only her and the younger Spears are the only ones whose teens pregnancies should be smiled upon and sanctioned.

  • Lolita

    And how can Bristol already be back at school and working? I call BS!

    Yeah she’s so f****** Christian she added insult to injury by not only having premarital sex, but also making it unprotected. Oh, let’s hail this stinking crot**.

  • Me!

    Me thinks that these two horny youngsters are busy having unprotected—-albeit—Christian sex.
    God bless.

  • Bella

    I hear Sarsh Palin sold the baby photos to PEOPLE for $250,000. They are keeping the money for themselves instead of donating to charity. Selfish greedy white trash!

  • Jill

    Two high-school dropouts have a baby out of wedlock. Republican family values at work.

  • Ugh to Bristol and Levi

    Gee, when a white Republican Christian teenager has unprotected premarital sex and decides to keep the baby instead of having an abortion or giving it up for adoption–she is a role model. However, when a poor black, non-Christian democrat teenager has unprotected sex and decides to keep the baby–she is a slut, the baby a mistake, and she is responsible for the entire welfare system being in existence. Doesn’t matter if the Republican teen is also on welfare.
    Palin and family are just about the biggest hypocrites around.

  • chAU

    These people have the weirdest names. Tripp? What the hell?

  • Trailer Trash

    This moron CALLS a tabloid to discuss her teen’s unwed pregnancy!

    What idiots voted for this trailer park moron?

  • Trailer Trash jokes

    Ignorance personified, not one educated person in the family.

    Tripp as in “triple”, one “p”, is a preppy nickname for a child born “the third”, as with “Trey”. They are NOT real names. It’s like naming a boy Junior.

    One calls ones son “Trip” or “Trey” if the father and grandfather of the exact same name are still living. If Levi’s father was named Levi, they could have named the baby Levi, then called him Trip. Hillbillies!

    One does NOT use these nicknames on birth certificates.

    No doubt the parents of Tripp Easton Mitchell mistakenly believe they have given their son a “classy” appellation.

    The family is a joke.

  • bindy

    there still high school drop outs to me.

  • Mr. Blonde

    Is there a law that says that they have to give money to charity after selling baby photos, #10? Just because Brangelina does it, it doesn’t make anyone else less for doing what they please with their hard-earned cash.

    You’ve never heard the name Tripp before, #13?

    They’re just names, #15! Who cares?!

  • Ahem

    BINDY, No. 16: “They’re”

    The teens are both taking correspondence courses preparing for GED tests.

    They ARE high school drop-outs.

    Unfortunately, Sarah Plain doesn’t understand the criteria involved.

  • Ahem AGAIN

    To Mr. Blonde,

    The POINT is that it is NOT a name, “Trip” is a shorthand for “the third”.

  • Jan

    Sarah is defending her daughter and future son in law. The tabloids have beaten them up since John McCain announced Sarah was his running mate. Just Jared printed that Sarah’s youngest son was Bristol’s and we all know that was a LIE. Her son in law to be has finished high school and working and studying to be an electrician. Her daughter is IN a HOME SCHOOLED correspondence high school. That is NOT a drop out. She just stopped going to public high school. Sarah with good reason is fed with the LIES about her family. Sarah has served her state well and does not deserve the hatred and lies printed about her family or herself.

  • Pauli

    Ugh, I really could have done without seeing Palin’s face tonight. It’s enough to ruin my New Years Eve celebration but luckily former President Clinton and Secretary of State designate Hillary Rodham Clinton were in Times Square to lift my spirits.

    Lol, “hard earned cash”? Teen pregnancies or having unprotected sex is now a viable job? You’re such a f****** nut, even in 2009.

    Well if Sarah is fed up with lies, maybe she should stop telling them too. She certainly exaggerated, lied and mislead during the campaign. Hurts when you are called out about it doesn’t it?

  • http://www.vectormotors.com gerard Vandenberg

    The kid’s (18 years young) second child and her mother is PROUD?
    TRUE, folks.
    THIS IS MISERY IN AMERICA!!

  • Mr. Blonde

    It’s what they call their son, #19. It’s a name to them and it’s a name to us. Just accept it.

    You know what I meant, #22.

  • ace tomato

    So when you are a liberal believing women can have it all – husbands/lovers/babies/careers is being a feminist – unless you are a Republican, and then it is irresponsible?

    I see.

    All those women with children should stay home. Barefoot. Right?

    Wow, sign me up for that political agenda!!!!!!!!!!

  • palin the freak

    sarah Palin is a freak . I’m sure her daughter gets the nanny Sarahs own son has . to save their ” hard earned money !!!” lol its a joke I mean come on its a freakshow an uncle plays with his nef thats freaky and not worth to copy she should be burned for supporting this mess . both babies will have probs to deal with it . shall trip scream ” uncle uncle where are you ? ” in kindergarden ?
    Bristol lives with her mommy in the tax pais villa . She doesnt need to pay for anything mommy surely knows how to get the money from all tax payers for her lil girly baby . Bristol gets everything for free. I would also be proud when I knew the taxes are not wasted only given to my daughter loooooooooooll Palin is a freak and for sure knows how to get tax relieves for her poor daughter . she needs everything from the state support because she is so poor

  • Dieter

    Jared – thanks for keeping me updated on Sarah Palin. I wank on the hot pooper of her´s on regular basis !!!

  • Babs

    When will the white trash crawl into a cave in Alaska and remain there on behalf of the wellbeing of America and the World? ‘

    “People” magazine has one of her stupid telephone quotes posted in their article. There’s no way this woman has a degree in communications which means she would have taken college level courses in English. I suspect Palin is a pathological liar and has embellished much of her life.

  • madeulook

    I loooove how folks are going “take that lefties” just because goofy meemaw just put a spin on her dropout daughter and baby’s daddy. Why does Sarah have to do damage control if her daughter and baby’s daddy were in school? Sounds to me like she’s trying to take the heat off lil ole Bristol and herself for that matter. How about teaching safe sex and stop living in the clouds Mrs. P. Sheesh

    Palin gives hillbillies a bad name…

  • yo mama

    Glad Palin called People and spoke the truth since the media has produced lies from day one about Sarah. Technically someone is not considered a dropout when receiving a GED. My husband received his GED and he is not considered a dropout. He currently has a six figure salary. Someone can still accomplish a lot even receiving a GED so keep your head up if you are ever in a situation like this.

    People put Bill and Hillary Clinton on a pedestal while criticizing Palin. I will never admire Bill and Hillary like some people do. Bill is a womanizer and his wife is still stupid enough to stay with him. I would have left his butt a long time ago.

  • Jan

    To Gerard Vandenburg:
    Bristol’s youngest baby brother is only 6months old. Bristol cannot be the mother of him. Her baby born a few days ago was full term 9MONTHS. It is impossible. There are hospital records proving Sarah is the mother of her youngest son. Sarah and Todd love all their children unconditionally. It was not the choice for her to have a child at such a young age. It was Bristol’s choice. Sarah is not denying her love and is supporting her as any LOVING mom would. It is the outside world especially liberal voters attacking Bristol. She is not in politics and should be left alone. You bash her as you are AFRAID of her mother’s future success in politics.

  • yoyo

    White trash pure and simple.

  • fedup

    So two teenagers made the same mistake millions of others have. Who knows if they used ‘protection’ or not — ‘protection’ has failed for lots of people, that’s for sure.

    At least they made the right decision by taking responsibility for their actions, rather than doing the “convenient” thing that seems to be so easily done these days.

    I certainly don’t admire them for the inital ‘mistake’, but it’s not the mistake that defines one’s character; it’s how you deal with the mistake. And they seem to be dealing with it in a responsible way. I wish them luck in their future together.

    Bashing them because you don’t like their mother’s political views is pretty pathetic. It certainly says more about you than her.

  • sachet

    #12…Most Blacks ARE Christians, it is the common religion for Blacks. Many Democrats are Christians too. Christianity is not relegated on to the Repubs. It’s just that Repubs think they are better than others.

    Your post is all wrong.

  • jane

    When will this white trash, Palin, welfare family go away.

  • sara

    The tax payers of Alaska support the Palin/Johnston clan. They are living off the system. Also Grandma Johsnton is a drug dealer.

  • JILLIAN

    WHITE TRASH!

  • fedup

    I am amazed at how people bash a woman who has accomplished a lot in her life, just because you don’t like her political views. Can’t you acknowledge someone’s accomplishments, even if you don’t agree with a poltiical stance? Grow up, will ya?

    This is a woman who came from nothing, got involved in politics because she didn’t like what was going on in her kids’ PTA at school, and somehow she’s managed to beat the good ole boy system and rise to become the governor of a state without riding any man’s coattails — no deep pocketed Daddy, no famous husband — just her own smarts used in getting there. Oh, and along the way, she didn’t lose her values.

    Good grief — if she was a liberal with a couple of abortions under her belt, there’d be a TV movie out about her by now!

    I may not agree with all of her political views, but I admire her moxy for getting to where she is with nothing but hard work and smarts. She’s the ultimate feminist — she beat the boys at their own game and has it all — career, family, values. Nice going, Sarah!

  • molly

    I’m sick of this Republican bashing – Obama was the one who said he didn’t want his daughters “punished with a baby” if they made a mistake. My daughter had a baby at 18 – (stupid I know) she had already graduated before she got pregnant – but we cannot control our kids every move. She is a good mom and going to college now. I don’t know if she will stick with it or not but we have to support our kids even when they make choices we dont agree with – Haters!!!

  • Mr. Blonde

    While I’m not a judge of these kids or anyone who’s pro-life or pro-choice, getting an abortion is most certainly not irresponsible and convenient but a very difficult choice to make, #38.

  • jaye

    Being an unwed teenager doesn’t harm her reputation, but the thought that she might be a dropout does? Sarah Palin doesn’t live on this planet.

  • lakers fan in boston

    congrats sarah u r an official GILF!

  • lakers fan in boston

    happy new years to u and ur nice busty daughter! =]*

  • Rhonda

    Congratulations to Bristol and Levi, I’ll bet that’s one beautiful baby. Good for you if you got $300.000 from People, you deserve it, the abuse you and your family took from the liberals ( who are so jealous of your Mom, they can’t stand it). Sarah and her family are REAL, not a piece of fiction that has been sold to you like the Obama’s. Anyone surprised Obama being investigated for coruption before he’s even sworn in? Told ya so!!!!!

  • char-babies:nolan,taleyn

    Why would you call your baby Tripp when you have a younger brother called Trig?? Aren’t the names just a bit too similar? Good luck to her though and all the best to their family.
