Just one day after former Alaska governor, Sarah Palin, formally endorsed Donald Trump for president, Apple has announced a new app – “Palin Translate.”
“For way too long now, we have struggled to decipher the meaning of her words,” said Apple CEO, Tim Cook.” Many have described Gov. Palin’s statements as just a bunch of words strung together. Now, with our simple app, those ‘word salads’ are broken down into simple English. The user can get a clear and concise translation of what she is attempting to say.”
Cook gave as an example part of Palin’s endorsement speech yesterday in Ames, Iowa:
Palin: “We are fortunate to have a true leader like Donald Trump for president who, by the way, is not a namby pamby like those who would desecrate our flag and bring down our country to the level of a third world country I can’t envision ever becoming. He has my endorsement.”
Palin Translate: “ I endorse Donald Trump for president.”
I tried the “Palin Translate” app on a comment Palin made not too long ago about President Obama’s weakness on foreign policy.
Palin: “That we should have a president so weak on foreign policy our enemies are emboldened to seek havoc and mayhem on those who just want to live a life in freedom and enjoy all god’s gifts in the U. S. of A.”
Palin Translate: “Our president is weak on foreign policy.”
“We had such a big demand for this useful tool,” said Cook. “Our company had also been working on a similar app, “McCarthy Translate,” but had to scrap it when Kevin McCarthy did not go on to become House Speaker.
Leave it to one of the largest, and most innovative, companies in the world, Apple, to provide the consumer with practical tools for the 21st century.
