Sarah Palin is once again taking fire, after posting a picture on her Facebook Page of her son standing on the 'lazy' family dog in order to get to the sink.

Palin was obviously attempting to show the determination of her son, Trig, who has down syndrome. But 'fans' on her official page lashed out, calling the picture and post cruel.

She says:

'Happy New Year!
May 2015 see every stumbling block turned into a stepping stone on the path forward. Trig just reminded me. He, determined to help wash dishes with an oblivious mama not acknowledging his signs for "up!", found me and a lazy dog blocking his way. He made his stepping stone.
- Sarah Palin'

The post has so far gained near 10,000 comments and 50,000 likes, with the expected arguing among liberals and conservatives taking up most of that space.

You can head on over to Palin's page to see the comments. Expect to hear a lot more from her as the 2016 election approaches - whether you like it or not.
