During a panel discussion with pundit James Carville at Politicon in Los Angeles over the weekend, former-Alaska governor and 2008 Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin got stumped by a 10-year-old who asked her to explain her support for GOP nominee Donald Trump.

The kid called Trump "sexist" for his comments regarding "blood coming out of [Fox News host Megyn Kelly's] whatever."

"You were saying ... that you hated the countries that didn't treat women right and that you didn't want to be part of the U.N. for that," he said. (At which point Palin interrupts to try and clarify that she didn't say "hate".) "How come you're endorsing Donald Trump?"

Short of a factual rebuttal, Palin responded, "Donald Trump isn't sexist. If he were, I wouldn't be endorsin' him."

[Applause drowned out by boos.]
