Palin and Trump meet for dinner theater

Palin and Trump greet supporters as they leave Trump Tower to head to Times Square for a slice of pizza. One question:?Who picked up the dinner tab?

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin paid a surprise visit to Manhattan last night to dine with  one-time presidential candidate flirt Donald Trump.

The two GOP powerhouses ate at Famous Famiglia pizza in Times Square.

Palin stopped in New York as part of her “One Nation” bus tour, after a quick jaunt to Philadelphia to tour the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. It was Palin who reached out to Trump and proposed the dinner, according to Trump’s spokesman.

When asked about a Trump-Palin presidential ticket, Palin said, “That sounds exciting! Sounds unconventional!” reported ABC News.

The media coverage surrounding Palin’s tour of the East Coast has made headlines even as fans and reporters have been left in the dark about her daily schedule.

“It reminds us of the star power that Gov. Palin has,” said Matt Mackowiak, a Republican consultant. “She can put together a bus tour and from the sheer power of her media status she is able to draw major media attention.”

Palin said she will tour Ellis Island today.

Will she announce pres. bid?

Mackowiak and Keystone poller Terry Madonna both agree that this trip will not end in Palin announcing a run for president. But because of her media power, Mackowiak said that Palin would have to be taken seriously if she does.

“She follows her own rules. Candidates are begging for voters to show up and setting up tons of interviews,” he said. “She isn’t doing any of that. … And she gets more coverage than everyone combined.”

“Who can criticize anyone going to the Liberty Bell?” Madonna told Metro. “That is the genius of it.”
