UPDATE: Evidently the poster changed their user ID at some point which changed the ID on all their previous posts so this is a dead end.
I was searching discussion boards for posts about Bristol being pregnant in early 2008 when I came across something very strange on this message board.
All posts are dated April 18, 2007. One post is authored by “Bristol Palin's retarded incest baby”.
At first I thought the date must have been wrong on the board’s posting program but the first post links to a story in the San Francisco Chronicle which is dated April 18, 2007. The story is about a copycat threat of the Virginia Tech massacre that took place on Monday, April 16, 2007.
Why would someone have been using that nickname one year to the day BEFORE Trig’s supposed birth?
Did Bristol give birth in 2007? If so what happened to that baby? Does the green sweater photo show a pregnant Bristol after all? I’m not sure if the exact date of the top photo was ever pinned down but the bottom picture was taken on December 8, 2006 according to this article. I don’t think pregnancy can be ruled out in either picture.
The picture below dated June 10, 2007 does not appear to show a post-partum Bristol but it’s possible that she lost the baby weight quickly.
It doesn’t seem possible that Trig could have been born in 2007. At least not the Trig that was presented on April 18, 2008. However, the Trig introduced in fall 2008 always seemed big for a 4 month old with Down Syndrome. And where does Ruffles fit in to all of this? I’m not sure but I will be digging for more on this new possibility.
Contact me with any information about the issues in this post or any other babygate related material.
