Sarah Palin Saturday slammed a request from The Washington Post to write an op-ed piece on the significance of Hillary Clinton being picked as the first woman president should she win the Nov. 8 election.
"Media mocks Trump's 'rigged election' warning to its own peril," Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate, wrote on Facebook.
"More evidence in my inbox, this time from The Washington Post requesting I write an op-ed commemorating their coronation of Hillary — 10 days from now," Palin continued.
"This is hilarious!"
The request — sent Friday by Michael Larabee, the Post's op-ed editor since 2014 — queries Palin on whether she would like to "contribute a short piece for us to publish in the days after the election."
Palin is among "a number of women" invited to write a piece "reflecting, in some personal way, on the meaning and significance of the election of the first woman as president.
"Obviously, a Clinton victory is not assured," Larabee cautioned, "but we're hoping to gather the essays in advance so we can share them quickly if she is elected."
After asking whether Palin was interested, the query ended: "We'd love to share her thoughts with our readers."
Palin's Facebook post also includes a link to a February 2013 Business Insider report story on the Post correcting that the former governor was joining the now-defunct Al Jazeera cable network.
The Post report had been sourced on an article from The Daily Currant, a satirical news site.
