Palin Family Involved in White Trash Brawl
This "event" has come to be known in Twitter circles by the hashtag #PalinBrawl. See the above link for three different versions of how the smackdown evolved into a brawl.
Sarah Palin has decided to defend her wayward daughter Bristol, who was last seen kicking someone's ass on the fateful night, which also happened to be her father Todd's 50th birthday.
From Sarah's Facebook Page:
September 19 at 1:25pm ·
I love my Bristol! My straight-shooter is one of the strongest young women you'll ever meet. I have to say this as a proud mama: right up there with their work ethic and heart for those less fortunate, my kids' defense of family makes my heart soar! As you can imagine, they and my extended family have experienced so many things (liberal media-driven) that may have crushed others without a strong foundation of faith, and I'm thankful for our friends' prayer shield that surrounds them, allowing faith to remain their anchor. Thank you, prayer warriors! I love you!

This comes after new eyewitnesses spoke about Bristol's role in the family brawl.

"It was just so shocking," Roberta Thompson told TPM.
She mostly confirmed what her husband told multiple news outlets last week, saying that the two of them were right next to each other during the incident. But she provided her own take on how the events unfolded, including a portion that she said involved the eldest Palin daughter, Bristol Palin, and the owner of the house, Korey Klingenmeyer.
"What I saw was two girls run past and run towards Korey," Roberta Thompson said. "And then I just saw Bristol Palin start punching him in the face."
"It was quite, quite violent," she added.
She said Klingenmeyer was clearly upset about what was happening but maintained his composure.
"She kept punching him and then he just said, you know, 'You need to go,'" Thompson said.
Sarah Palin says she couldn't be prouder of the way Bristol punches people in the face when she gets drunk http://t.co/Xcr61VN8BL— The Daily Edge (@TheDailyEdge) September 21, 2014
