Ah, she was just ‘Putin’ us on. To hype her new TV show, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin had a pretend conversation with Vladimir Putin – aka Jimmy Fallon – on Wednesday.
In a skit on “The Tonight Show,” Putin/Fallon calls Palin and tells her: “I heard back in 2008, you predicted I would invade Ukraine. Is that true?”
“You betcha, Vlad,” says Palin.
Turns out they don’t see eye-to-eye on Ukraine – she tells him to get out of the country – but they both love to have fun at President Obama’s expense.
“You shoot bear? I prefer hand-to-hand combat,” said Putin.
“Well, that’s why everyone calls you such a strong leader,” said Palin.
“I come from strong genes. President Obama, he comes from mom jeans!” said Putin.
Palin’s new series about the outdoor lifestyle, “Amazing America,” kicks off tonight on the Sportsman Channel.
