Sarah Palin Defends Jessica Simpson’s Pregnancy Weight Gain on ‘Today’ (VIDEO)

Don't mess with Sarah Palin. Well, at least not when she's pregnant.

When asked about how she would feel about people commenting on how much weight she gained during pregnancy, she responded: "I would have wanted to punch ‘em in the neck. Because it’s none of anybody’s business how much I would gain. You know why this is even an issue, Matt, is because that Hollywood image is full of itty bitty people, unrealistically tiny.”
