Miss California Carrie Prejean has Sarah Palin on her side, usmagazine.com reports.

The conservative Alaska governor released a statement Wednesday night (as picked up by Fox News) slamming “the liberal onslaught of malicious attacks” against Prejean, 21, who first ignited controversy for coming out against same-sex marriage at last month’s Miss USA pageant.

“I can relate, as a liberal target myself,” Palin said. “What I find so remarkable is that these politically motivated attacks fail to show that what Carrie and I believe is also what President Obama and Secretary Clinton believe — marriage is between a man and a woman.”

Continued Palin: “I applaud Donald Trump for standing with Carrie during this time. And I respect Carrie for standing strong and staying true to herself, and for not letting those who disagree with her deny her protection under the nation’s First Amendment Rights.

“Our Constitution protects us all — not just those who agree with the far left,” Palin went on.

On Tuesday, Trump announced at a press conference that Prejean would keep her crown despite the release of topless photos. Miss California pageant director Shanna Moakler resigned her position the day after, telling usmagazine.com she “no longer believes” in the Miss Universe organization.

Last week, Prejean’s dad told E! Online that Palin personally called his daughter, but didn’t release details of their phone conversation.
