Sarah Palin’s Terrible Speech Doesn’t Sound Any Better As an Iggy Azalea Freestyle

Quick: Name two popular white women who have some trouble speaking off the cuff.

Discussing Trump’s appeal to her particular conservative demographic, she  … well, she rapped. Really.

Yes, Iggy Azalea, whose infamous stumbling freestyle was recently immortalized in Vine form:
