Setting the Record Straight

As I’ve said before, I sometimes struggle to raise Tripp.  However, he does NOT use slurs.  On the most recent episode of Life’s a Tripp, the Huffington Post is reporting that my son said the word “f-gg-t.”

This is not true.

Let me be clear.  I’m not proud of what he did say.  Sadly, he used a different “f word.”

Lifetime filmed over 12 months (on and off) and they caught a moment on film that would cause any parent to be red in the face.  Tripp is always surrounded by adults – around the campfires with cousins and their friends, at the shop with my dad and his snowmachine buddies.  He’s apparently picked up some language that I’d prefer he not use. On national television or at home.

I do oppose gay marriage, as I’ve written about before (and the HuffPo points out).  I guess the temptation to label my three year old son is just too great for the lefty papers to resist.  However, one of my new Twitter followers made an excellent point.

He tweeted that the left tries to hold my three year old son more accountable than their adult spokespeople.

In the meantime, my #IBuiltThis video is going viral — with its message of real hope and classic American self-reliance.  If you care more about the fate of our nation and culture than the verbal slips of a three-year-old, please watch.

    I thought it was cute. I hope that the rest of the shows are just as funny. I have some great ideas for next season’s shows. I think that Gino should bond with Tripp and they could have belching and farting contests to see who can make the most noise. Then, Gino and Tripp can have pissing contests, like all of the guys do. I think that it will be fun to see Tripp go off to nursery school or kindergarten and call the teacher a bitch. She is taking government money. Then, he could call his class mates cute names too, like “you bastard.” No, on second thought, that’s not a good one.

      Hahaha!!!

    Well we have another self appointed (above) spotless person giving advise again, maybe he should take a good look at himself!

  • crash43

    Every single one of you who are agreeing to these type of words coming from a 3 yr old are agreeing to this type of parenting..giggle and say “god’s watching you”, trashing your child’s father in front of him, letting Tripp hit people, telling him about the swimming pool, then saying drunk kids are down there (how does Tripp know what drunk kids means), letting your sister use bad language in front of him, fighting with Willow all the time..none of this is Tripp’s fault, he’s only 3 yrs old.

    • Whatevah

      Wow. Your kids must be angelic. At least I hope they are because it would be awfully sanctimonious of you to come here and browbeat Bristol Palin because her three year old dropped the f bomb — something for which the young lad was roundly chastised by both his mother and his aunt. But, golly, I’m sure your kids would never ever ever say a bad word. And, of course, your kids have never acted up or been disobedient or made a mess at the dinner table. As for why it was left in the show, I dunno maybe because it’s a reality TV show and it was kind of interesting and it was something for which most parents have had to deal with.

      Remember this scene…. http://youtu.be/dgx1sSfriIA

      • crash43

        So laughing and saying “God watching you” is called chastising him…I don’t know any kids 3 yrs old who use the F-words..he repeats what he hears, plain and simple. My kids did use curse words when they were older and they were taught right from wrong the minute it happened. Problem is she didn’t deal with it..that’s why it on the front page of HP and 10 other sites.

        • Truth101

          It is called abortion.

          • crash43

            What are you talking about..deal with it= discipline not abortion..shows where your mind is..

        • Whatevah

          If Tripp Palin grows up to be a drug addicted mass murder, I’ll grant you that Bristol is a bad mother. But a little kid dropping the f bomb because he heard some construction workers or someone say it when they didn’t know he was listening is hardly an outrage and doesn’t impugn Bristol’s parenting skills. (And the fact that she laughed at first is proof of how out of the ordinary his behavior was. It was startled laughter at the incongruity of her 3 year old son saying a word that was clearly outrageous to his normal behavior and upbringing.) Since you are so fond of giving Ms. Palin advice, how about if you take some yourself. I respectfully suggest you take the plank out of your own eye before you blather on about the splinter in hers. There is almost nothing more annoying than preening self-righteous busybodies. People like you make the world a worse place. I believe Jesus called you whited sepulchers.

          • crash43

            So now he learned it construction workers..lol why is it so hard for you to know I’m not criticizing Tripp, it’s how his mother handled it or should I say didn’t handle it..don’t try and tell me this is the first time he’s said such words, just listen to Willow and you can see part of the problem. I’ve noticed there are a lot of Christians namecalling on here..what you say?

          • Whatevah

            crash43,

            You win, honey. You’re the bestest person in the whole wide world. You’re so far above us all we’re just like ropes dangling from the Goodyear blimp. You’re right. We’re wrong. I’ve finally seen the light. Bristol is a bad, bad, super-bad mother because her son said a swear word. She is the root of all evil in this world. People, we can’t let this outrage against humanity stand. She must be punished! We must drive out this evil from our midst. Everyone grab your pitchforks and torches! We’re heading to Wasilla to burn her at the stake. Hanging’s too good for her.

        • Whatevah

          One more thing: the reason why this story is on the Huffington Post and other sites is because the lunatic left (of which you seem to be a charter member) tried to smear Bristol Palin by accusing her 3 year old son of using an anti-gay slur. It was a lie. They want to shut this young woman up simply because a) she’s Sarah Palin’s daughter, b) she believes that marriage is between a man and a woman (which, silly her, is what humanity has believed since… oh… FOREVER), and c) she’s got her mother’s knack for schooling Obama (aka “Dear Leader” to you progressive drones).

          By the way, since you’re outraged by Tripp’s use of the f bomb, I’m sure you’re equally stunned and outraged that Obama’s single mother abandoned him and let him drift into heavy drug use. Right?

          • crash43

            She has no room to school Obama or anyone else..maybe if she paid attention Tripp wouldn’t be using curse words…wonder if her goes to Sunday school and uses those words and hits people. Why don’t you go over to the smear site and stand up for her, not many are.

          • GrizzlyMom

            Sarah Palin hasn’t schooled President Obama in ANYTHING. She’s a joke. I wonder if she was fat and ugly if she would be as popular with your idiots.

    • Truth101

      Get lost you dougebag. Ricky Hollywood is the scum of the earth. Bristol went easy on that lowlife scum.

      • crash43

        But Sarah thought he was good enough to go on stage and said they were getting married..so they must have thought highly of him at the time to cover for their daughter then kicked him to the curb. And wasn’t Bristol engaged to him a second time also too. Ricky Hollywood, talk about the pot calling the kettle black..whole family of Hollywood wanna bees.

        • liberty

          Crash 43 did you hit your head because you sound like a RAVING LUNATIC

          • crash43

            Yep, Bristol is being called a terrible mother on how many web sites and you are calling everyone names and I’m the lunatic..you are a funny one.

          • Truth101

            Hey crash,

            Bristol being called a terrible mother on liberal web sites that abort their babies is a badge of honor.

          • Cookie

            While you are the voice of reason.

        • Truth101

          That was before the lowlife scum picked money over his own son. Only a freckin loser would do that.

      • crash43

        That low life according to you is lucky he got away from that family..they can’t seem to keep men around..is Gino still hanging around, Willows boyfriend is gone and she’s moved on to another one.

        • Jellybean

          crash43, when section9 replies to you it’s because you’ve gotten under his thin-skin. Be proud of that. He’s a hardcore palinbot that must defend the honor of his fantasy woman.

          • crash43

            Don’t worry I know exactly who he is. C4P is a fantasy site.

        • Truth101

          Hey crash, Where is that freckin loser now? The dumbass is living in his drug addict mom’s basement. What happen to all the money that lowlife made trashing the Palins?

          • crash43

            You know nothing about Levi except what the Palins tell you..He has his own home and a beautiful girlfriend who is a preschool teacher and is expecting a baby girl. Seems Bristol made lot her money trashing Levi and selling cover pictures and wouldn’t have made any money if it wasn’t for Levi..she should be thanking him. Apparently his lawyers were working both side of the fence, long story that you wouldn’t believe anyway ..he has a new one and is going back to court..this show will diffidently help his case in court. Exactly when did he ever trash Bristol??

    • section9

      No, you Nazi scum, we recognize that Bristol is a young person of her generation, almost all of whom talk like China sailors.
      If you don’t get that, you need to get out more often.
      Now go shine your jackboots. There’s an Obama For America meeting your late for.

  • tina

    Bristol,I knew they would try to tie you and Willow to that nonsense.Yeah it was bad to use that word but it was wrong for them to misquote your son. Immoral Minority started this whole crap and Gawker follow.It shows how many letters was quoted and the still use the word f—–.Shame on them messing with the Palin family.I thought they didn’t like your show.

    • Jellybean

      Watch him say it in the clip. It doesn’t matter what letters they put on the screen, he said faggot, but pronounced it faggit.

      • Truth101

        He said fucker you lowlife scum.

        • crash43

          Where you there? Did you hear him? You just believe what you are told to believe.

          • Maleena

            Crash Were you there????? That question can go both ways. There was someone there who said he did not say that BUT oh no he is lying also. So, does it really matter if someone was there? You will believe the negative anyway. As shown here.

    • Cookie

      Immoral Minority has some nerve! “Gryphen is a foul-mouthed piece of garbage who has profited off the Palin name for years.

  • Lisa

    It doesn’t matter which f-word he said. The point is that after he said it, you laughed and did nothing. You are teaching your kid that it’s okay to disrespect people. When I was four, I called my mom a “stupid idiot” and was sent to bed without dinner. I never called her that again.
    If you’re hanging around other people who say “fuck” in front of Tripp, that in itself is bad parenting. I didn’t hear that word till I was eight, and it was from a classmate. As a parent you need to teach him right from wrong. You didn’t do that in this clip, you simply laughed it off like it was nothing. Don’t try to blame this on other people Bristol.

    • liberty

      Go anywhere the store the movies walking on the sidewalk in a park a playground people all around you hear people swearing maybe he heard it in those settings but I guess you wouldn’t know that since you never leave your parents basement you tool.

      • Lisa

        It doesn’t matter where he heard it, the point is that Bristol didn’t tell him not to say that word. He now thinks it’s okay to use and will probably continue using it.

        • Truth101

          I am sure Bristol had a long talk with Tripp and her friends about what they say around the child.

  • aaron krohn

    I thought it was adorable when Tripp said that word.
    It was innocent because he doesn’t know the real meaning of it.
    Kids tend to say some controversial things…….at least controversial to adults!!
    To them, it’s the same as saying “doggy” or “the” or “no spinach!!”!!
    Let him be what he is….a great adorable 3 year old!!

    But one thing: Was he saying that word to Willow?? Seemed like he was.
    Interesting that Willow got much more upset when Andy called her the “B” word in that restaurant, than she did at Tripp!!
    But of course, how can you get angry at a 3 year old??!!

    Wonderful episodes….#’s 9 and 10.

    • FloridaGramy

      If you think that kind of behavior is adorable, then you’re as warped as the Palin clan.

      • sodakhic

        Hey, Gramy, Have you seen Obamas high school drug antics? Adorable. It’s a wonder he didn’t do jail time. Mark Levin said he should out his drug dealer.

        • crash43

          Why are you trying to deflect this to Obama..and I notice you didn’t leave a link.

  • Vickie

    Anyone with a name like jellybean should always be ignored! Who is jellybean to call anyone out? Really? Jellybean showed their ignorance and intolerance with such hateful comments!

    • Jellybean

      You are free to ignore me vickster, as is anyone else. So tell me, I know you love the palin clan, but what do you think of President Obama, his lovely wife Michelle and their 2 beautiful daughters. Do you think that President Obama is a bad father, like bristol does?

      • liberty

        Yes jellyidiot the bamster is a marxist communist so that makes him a bad father because he is teaching his children to hate America just like he and Moochell do and you are a obama loving ZOMBIE TOOL.

        • Jellybean

          You forgot a few buzzwords liberty like Kenyan, socialist and pals around with terrorists. And last but not least, SATAN! You’re slipping liberty.

          • Truth101

            First you trash Bristol and now you are trashing Obama.

            Get back on your meds.

          • Jellybean

            Add reading comprehension difficulities to your long list of flaws truthy.

          • liberty

            THANK YOU FOR REMINDING ME jellyidiot KENYON SOCIALIST AND PALS AROUND WIYTH TERRORISTS like BILL AYRES. And your lord and master SATAN.

          • Jellybean

            You’re welcome liberty. I know you havve the same beliefs as the palins, so I didn’t want you to miss those. Have you had an excorsism like sarah has? If not, you better do that soon. You wouldn’t want satan sniffing around you. I’m sure sarah can set you up.

  • Kaitie Smith

    I would think that, as his mother, you would have more of a disciplinary reaction to Tripp saying that word-whether it was the slur, or the swear word. I don’t think either are appropriate for a 3-year old to be using (or hearing, for that matter), and you giggling about it afterwards makes him think it’s funny and/or cute for him to say that. Perhaps if you had reacted differently, the public’s reaction to the moment would be different.

  • Bill Metzger

    God Bless you Bristol! It is amazing that some these ‘compassionate’, free thinking, barely touch the ground when they walk, Liberal types are ready to punce on you and your Mom and Dad because a little child slipped up. These folks are the phoniest people one can ever come across! But you are strong and they cannot touch you or yours with thier disgusting phony judgemental crap… oooohhh Libs… I used a bad word…. oh dear me!

    • crash43

      Boy you people are dense..it’s not about Tripp slipping up, it’s about how Bristol handled it and why it was left on the show…think about that for a while.
