A Clue To Trig’s Parentage?

 

CLOSE-UPS OF BRISTOL’S AND TRIG’S EARS WITH THE BATWING/BOOMERANG SHAPE CIRCLED HAVE BEEN ADDED AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST

Recently I received an email from a reader suggesting that I compare Sarah’s and Trig’s ears for similarities. I looked at several pictures but their ears appear quite different to me. I decided to examine pictures of other members of the Palin family to see if any of their ears resembled Trig’s.

Trig’s ear has a distinctive triangular formation which some refer to as a batwing. I call it a boomerang shape. Out of all the pictures I looked at I could find only one other Palin with the batwing or boomerang shape and that is Bristol. Finding a picture of Bristol with one of her ears showing clearly was difficult but I finally found a couple on this page.

Below are pictures of Sarah, Bristol and Trig. The triangular formation is evident on Bristol’s and Trig’s ears but I don’t see it on Sarah’s.

The fact that Bristol and Trig share this triangular formation of the ear also makes it very improbable that the baby with the ruffled ear pictured below had surgery on his ears and is the child we know as Trig today. What are the chances that after surgery the baby’s ear would have the same batwing or boomerang shape as Bristol’s?

 

Please share your thoughts on this subject with me and if anyone can find pictures of any of the Palins, Heaths or other people related to them with a similar ear formation please send me a link to the picture.

 

In the comments some of you have expressed that you don’t get what I mean by batwing. I am referring to the triangular shape just above the earlobe. I have now added close ups of Bristol’s and Trig’s ears with the areas I am referring to circled in red. I hope this clears up any confusion.

If you were to assume that Sarah is the mother of both of them, it's not exactly hard to believe that two kids could have the same ear shape.

I really don't see what you're trying to point out and it appears to me that the top of Sarah's ear points back a bit, similar to, but much less pronounced that what Trig's ears currently look like with his dark hair. What I wonder is if a child with rounded ears as an infant, like the one at the RNC, can have their ears grow into the batwing shape we see in the more recent pictures of dark haired Trig.

I don't know what you all mean by "batwing" but what I find interesting about Sarah, Piper, Trig, and Tripps ears is the extra cartilage (diction?) line just above the lower holey part of the ear. Not a rarity but they are the only ones in the family who have it.

Also, Trig bears a atriking resemblance to some young cousins on the Heath side, not to mention Piper.

Blade, maybe put up 4 pics of those I mentioned and compare.

I think Todd is Trig's daddy, and his mistress is Trig's mother.

I think it was inconvenient timing for $arah when Todd knocked up his mistress, so they faked it for they press AND the other kids in the family.

I think that is why $arah is SO mean to Todd, and i think there is a very well-paid-off mistress out there, somewhere.

Iv always thought SP has some of the LARGEST ears Ive ever seen. I mean,
she has got some elephant ears.

Blade, did you look at Ruffles ears to see if he has the batwing?

I have always believed that Bristol gave birth to Trig (the present day Trig) in early 2008. Bristol's Facebook posts about her mother asking if she was pregnant, her weight gain during the summer of 2007, and her absence from school that winter all support this. The baby in the picture taken with the Heaths at the hospital in April 2008 is the Trig Bristol gave birth to. Because he was born several months before, probably premature or small because of the DS, he had grown and filled-out some by late April, and didn't look like a newborn anymore. I still believe that upon finding out that Trig was DS after his birth, Sarah decided to raise him, and came up with her plan to fake her pregnancy.

Now what about the pictures of the ruffled-ear baby taken with Levi and Mercede in the Palin kitchen? Levi, and especially Mercede, would have had no reason to be there holding that baby unless he was someone special to them. And Mercede's Triggybear posts show she had an attachment to him.

My theory is that the pics in the Palin kitchen were taken right after Trig came home from the hospital in early 2008. The Johnstons, of course, would have known that Bristol had given birth, especially if Levi was the father. And remember, they probably didn't know Trig had DS at first. Sarah had not yet planned her fake pregancy, but was just going to help Bristol raise the baby. They could have just as easily had a baby shower for Bristol around that same time.

Sarah decided to fake her pregnancy after it was discovered that Trig had DS. But by late April, Trig had grown. The picture with the Heaths raised questions, because Trig looked older, so they pulled out the previously taken pictures from the Palin home and "said" they were taken in late April/early May to "prove" the baby Sarah "gave birth to" was in fact a newborn.

The only glitch in my theory is the ruffled ear on that baby. Babies' looks can change quite a bit from the time they are born. And DS features aren't always prominent right away. So the small baby in the kitchen photos COULD have been Trig. If you look at his eyes, they do have the beginning of that DS slant. So I can't rule out the possibility that he is the current day Trig. The ruffled ear is the only thing that confuses me.

From the announcement of his birth in April until the convention in September, we really don't see and pictures of Trig. He may have had ear surgery during that time. I understand that most surgeons wouldn't do that type of surgery on a baby that young, but with Sarah's insistence, who knows? Most doctor's wouldn't have gone along with Sarah's faked pregancy either, but we know that's not true, don't we?

@MN gal. Aren't you forgetting the pictures of Ruffles at the baby shower in early May? They support the Triggybear pictures being taken around the same time, not in early 2008. -B

I still think Trig looks just like Sarah. He is related to her somehow, IMO.

Blade said...

I did look at the close-up picture of Ruffles ear. I don't see any sign of the triangular formation that present day Trig and Bristol both have. I don't think that surgery would have produced the shape since Bristol has it, too. I think the present day Trig is the baby that Bristol gave birth to and Ruffles was a borrowed baby who has fetal alcohol syndrome.

I'm a genealogist and frequently use ears to match baby pictures to grown adults. Ears do not change by themselves. They grow longer and larger, but the basic shapes remain the same. If Ruffles did not have the triangular form in the earlier pix, he's not going to develop it later in life.

Anonymous said...

The point seems irrelevant. Sarah is Bristol's mother, they could easily have the same ear gene.

Amy said...

Bristol's ears do not have the triangle formation. That picture above is poor. Her ears are actually very different from Sarah's and Todd's. Find a pic without her hair in the way. and compare the ear structures of Sarah, Trig and Tripp, as well as Piper

the baby Sarah and Todd and Chuck and Sally were holding on 4/18 is the Trig we see today. Same nose and features. "ruffles" also looks like the same baby, but the angles are different so he looks smaller. but the ear on ruffles looks like it could be the same as Trig's is today. I still go by Ivy Fryes tweet where she said Trig was born in mid March

Blade said...

Amy - Take a look at the close up of Bristol. The triangular shape is definitely there. It's not exactly like Trig's but close. I don't think that ruffles is the Trig we see today. That ruffled ear doesn't have the triangle shape. When did Ivy Frye tweet that Trig was born in March? I missed that. Can you send me anything about that?

There is a photo of Todd Palin showing his right ear, at this addy http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2008/10/todd_palin_first_gentleman.php and it looks very much like the "batwing" you are describing. I find it on Google Images for Todd Palin. I cannot find a similar image for his left ear. Could it be possible that Todd, Bristol, and Trig share the ear, but not Sarah? Still doesn't make Trig Sarah's.

I still struggle with the fact that there are two babies shown as TRi-G with different necks: one very, very thick (typical DS neck), and one much closer to regular thickness for a baby. I am confident that NO baby can reduce or inflate his/her neck size at will. PLEASE post photos showing what I am referring to.

KaJo said...

Anon @ 8:56 PM, feel free to look at these pix if the several Trigs used by the Palins -- the differences are obvious, and there are some good comparative ear studies, too.

How do you know the baby shower pics were actually taken in early May? Just because Sarah says so doesn't make it true.

Gles said...

Okay, I hope this doesn't sound stupid but what if this ear figuration leans more to Native Alaskans. Searching for a pic I found:

here

So in other words, do Native Alaskans have some facial traits that can be identified and compared?

As far as the kitchen photos being dated from 5/3/08, please allow me to add my two cents. Gryphen is the one who verified the date when he published the pictures. Notice that a birthday cake is in one of the shots, and 5/3/08 was Levi's birthday. I am not saying that any of this is genuine proof of the date, but these are the sources of the date, not SP.

Paradigm Shift: The Palin Matrix will be released in early January. The Table of Contents has just been published at Palin Babygate.

Blade, you might find this little game relevant to certain issues with Ruffles.

You might be on to something here, Blade, but I don't know what.

O/T~ On Mercede's blog, there is a picture of Levi holding Tripp in the hospital right after he was "supposedly" born. It is the picture of Levi wearing a hospital bracelet. The baby looks like the same baby I thought was a doll in the US Weekly magazine article.

The baby is crying in both pictures and they are of poor quality. These are the only pictures of a "just born" Tripp I have seen. Do you know of any others?

As we all know, if Bristol had really given birth, they would have sold the pictures for thousands. Of course, as Levi told us in Vanity Fair, Sarah told them not to.

Yeah...

I noticed that Levi's sideburns and hair is much, much shorter in the hospital bracelet photos. He also looks about a year younger than the more recent photos of him taken in 2008.

Blade- thanks for pointing out the bat area in detail-- I was always confused when people talked about it. Interesting find. Thank you for staying on this and examining the evidence.
