Earlier Tuesday, she slipped out—unbeknownst to the press covering her—leaving her tour bus behind at her Gettysburg hotel. Reporters who believed she was still inside waited by the bus until they realized Palin was already touring the Gettysburg battlefields. The press scrambled to catch up with her at the Gettysburg National Cemetery before she took off again to Dillsburg. It seemed as though she was trying to fool the mass of press trying to follow her tour that’s taken her through historical sites in Washington D.C. and up the East Coast without a schedule or press notifications, but Todd Palin said the “intention” of the tour is to bring the group (reporters included) to see historic sites around the country, not to allude to the press.
“She talks to you guys, you are getting a lot, right? Being here you are getting a lot. There is nothing staged, there is nothing advertised. How many in this group have been to Gettysburg before? How many have been to the national archives? So that’s the whole intention of this tour,” he said.
