HBO premiered Game Change on Saturday, which follows Sarah Palin and John McCain's unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign, and the former running mates have both spoken out about the political biopic.
Palin told Fox News before the premiere that she was "not concerned about an HBO movie based on a false narrative when there are so many other things to be concerned about."
Palin is played by four-time Oscar nominee Julianne Moore, but that doesn't seem to be influencing her opinion of the film. The former Alaska governor added, "I believe my family has the right priorities and knows what really matters. For instance, our son called from Afghanistan yesterday and he sounded good, and that's what matters. Being in the good graces of Hollywood's 'Team Obama' isn't top of my list." Burn!
McCain also took issue with how he is characterized in the movie, telling Fox, "I have been told I am portrayed as using an exceeding amount of coarse language. I don't use coarse language very often. I have a larger vocabulary than that." Maybe he should watch the film first though? Just a thought!
Of Palin, McCain added, "I thought she was best qualified person. ... I'm grateful that she ran with me, and I will always be proud of what we did."
We missed this over the weekend, but we'll be watching it today on our DVR ... have you seen it yet?
