Sarah Palin offers ADVICE to Kamala Harris as she follows her to become third woman to appear on presidential ticket

SARAH Palin advised Kamala Harris to “trust no one” as she became the third woman on the presidential ticket.

On Tuesday, Biden announced Harris would be his running mate as he attempts to beat Donald Trump in the November election.

Although the president’s campaign labelled her a “phony,” Harris, 55, found an unexpected ally in the form of Alaska‘s former and first female governor.

Palin – who served as the youngest governor of The Frontier State and was a former Republican vice presidential nominee for John McCain in 2008 – issued her congratulations to Harris on Instagram.

But didn’t hesitate to give Harris, a democrat from California, six pieces of frank advice.

“1) Out of the chute trust no one new,” Palin wrote. “2) Fight mightily to keep your own team with you – they know you, know your voice, and most importantly are trustworthy.”

“Don’t get muzzled – connect with media and voters in your own unique way,” she wrote in her third point. “Some yahoos running campaigns will suffocate you with their own self-centered agenda so remember YOU were chosen for who YOU are.  

“So stay connected with America as you smile and ignore deceptive ‘handlers’ trying to change you.”

Palin also clued Harris in on “OTRs” – an “orchestrated campaign stop” – which is meant to normalize VPs to voters.

The Fox News contributor warned Harris not to “forget the women who came before you” – but also, to enjoy the experience.

“This IS the greatest country in the world and hopefully you’ll be blessed beyond belief, like I was, with meeting new people from all walks of life and see just how great it is!” Palin concluded, hinting that there would be more to come.

Palin was the second woman to be on the ticket of a major political party when McCain ran in ’08 and when Harris accepts the nomination next week, she’ll be the third.

The announcement comes even after Biden and Harris clashed over racial issues during one of the Democratic presidential debates last year.

Biden tweeted his announcement, which made Harris the first black woman and Asian-American on a major presidential ticket.

During her time as McCain’s right-hand-woman, Palin delivered a passionate speech at the Republican National Convention.

A number of publicized gaffes followed and McCain was ultimately beaten by Barack Obama and his former VP Biden that year.

Unlike Palin, Trump’s 2020 campaign delivered a blistering response to Harris’ appointment, while Trump said he was surprised Biden picked her.

In a scathing statement, his aides said picking Harris was proof Biden is “an empty shell being filled with the extreme agenda of the radicals on the left.”

“Biden is no moderate, and with Harris as his ‘political living will,’ he is surrendering control of our nation to the radical mob with promises to raise taxes, cut police funding, kill energy jobs, open our borders, and appease socialist dictators,” wrote Katrina Pierson, a Trump 2020 senior advisor.

“At the ballot box, Americans will resoundingly reject the abysmal failures of Biden-Harris in favor of the America First strength of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.”
