“You know, the White House’s judgment on inviting someone who would glorify cop killing during Police Memorial Week, of all times, you know, the judgment–it’s just so lacking of class and decency and all that’s good about America with an invite like this,” the former Alaska governor said on Fox’s “On the Record.” “And you know, it’s just so easy to assume that they’re just inviting someone like me or somebody else to ask, ‘Come on, Barack Obama, who are you palling around with now?’ “
