UPDATE: Sarah Palin’s Husband in ‘Very Serious’ Accident
NBC news reports that the crash, which occurred March 13, was “very serious.”
Palin, via her official Facebook page, listed Todd’s injuries as “multiple broken and fractured ribs, broken shoulder blade, broken clavicle, knee/leg injuries; and a collapsed lung.” Though her post was not without Palin’s trademark humor: “Knowing Todd, once he’s cognizant, he’ll probably ask docs to duct tape him up and he’ll call it good. He’s tough.”
Sarah Palin cancelled an appearance in support of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, but attended an earlier rally in Tampa, Florida before leaving for Alaska.
In Tampa, the former governor of Alaska thanked the crowd for praying for her husband and said that Todd is recovering in ICU.
Palin went on to say that when “all these real life issues that happen, it really puts things perspective, doesn’t it?”
“It makes me appreciate the time that we have to spend in doing something so worthy,” Palin continued, “and that’s to get Donald J. Trump elected president.”
In the same appearance, Palin described the recent protests and disturbances at Trump rallies as “punk-ass little thuggery.”
Saddened to hear the news about Todd. Heidi and I will be keeping him and the entire Palin family in our thoughts and prayers.

A number of conservative politicians have offered their support to Palin at this time, such as Senator Ted Cruz. Senator John McCain—who selected Sarah Palin as his running mate during the 2012 Presidential election—tweeted “Wishing Todd a speedy recovery—my thoughts and prayers are with him.”
Palin endorsed Trump’s presidential bid earlier this year and has since traveled the country campaigning for the New York businessman.
