So Donald Trump is the Republican party’s presumptive nominee, and unless you want Sarah Palin to think you’re not one of the “smart Democrats,” you better unite behind him.

In a video posted to her Facebook page early Wednesday morning, following Trump’s decisive victory in Indiana, the former-vice presidential candidate told “GOP and independents and smart Democrats” that “it is time to come together, pull together.”

Palin lamented the “precarious [pronounced without the first ‘r’] position” in which America has found itself after seven years under the control of Barack Hussein Obama.

“Our country will stand united; divided, we’re gonna fall,” she continued. “So now — after participating in some really healthy, kinda arduous competition — now more than ever it’s time to … put some differences aside, stand on principle.”
