Palin on HBO Movie:’I’ve Made More Impersonators Than Obama’s Made Jobs’

Sarah Palin appeared on Fox News Sunday today, and towards the end of her interview with Chris Wallace, the host confronted her with clips from the highly provocative movie Game Change, based on the bestselling book. Wallace played a portion of the movie’s trailer, including the part where Woody Harrelson‘s character says the 2008 vice presidential candidate was “on the verge of a complete nervous breakdown.” Wallace acknowledged “the look on [Palin’s] face” the second he brought up HBO, and as he teased the trailer, Palin asked, “Must we?”

Her first reaction was to at least give the filmmakers credit for the “Sarah Palin Employment Act,” and joked they should be thanking her for helping create more jobs in filming the movie than President Obama. However, she admitted she’s “not too concerned” about the film, and insisted it’s “based on a false narrative” about the campaign. Wallace brought up claims made by the book and film that Palin went into a “funk” during the campaign, hence the “nervous breakdown” line.
