Sarah Palin on Tuesday, 5 April 2016

In the string of now-deleted tweets, Banks also said that it should all be filmed and put on WORLDSTARHIPHOP -- a sentiment that seems to have been spurred by a

To her credit, Banks deleted the tweets as soon as she realized the article was fake -- though she has continued to tweet out articles and videos that reaffirms Palin's track record for saying some pretty questionable stuff.
