New York, Aug 7 (PTI) US glamorous politician Sarah Palin would have had a “mental breakdown” if she were ever elected America”s president, the younger sister of Bristol Palin”s ex Levi Johnston has claimed.
In an interview with ”Playboy” magazine, Mercede Johnston — whose brother Levi hit newspaper headlines for a fling with Sarah”s daughter Bristol — has claimed the 47-year-old former Alaskan governor “isn”t up to the task of being US President”.
“I think she”d have had a mental breakdown… As governor she (Sarah) quit on us. What does that say about her?” the ”New York Post” quoted 18-year-old Mercede as saying in the interview for the September issue of the US men”s magazine.
When asked what percentage of residents in the former Republican vice-presidential candidate”s home town of Wasilla “can’t stand Palin”, Mercede promptly responded: “I would say 70 per cent”.
Mercede has also claimed that Track Palin, Sarah”s 22- year-old son who is an Army reservist, used drugs.
“He did OxyContin and mostly cocaine. He didn”t choose to go into the Army; he went there because his mom made him, to get him out of the way so when she was at the convention they wouldn”t know he does drugs and would think he was a patriot,” she was quoted as saying.
A Palin family representative has declined to comment, the US newspaper said.
