Sarah Palin Advises Jimmy Fallon’s Putin on The Tonight Show

Sarah Palin starred in a skit on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night. Fallon played Russian president Vladimir Putin, who called Palin to ask who he should invade next (since she predicted he would invade Ukraine back in 2008).

“Finland, Sweden? I heard Jamaica’s nice this time of year,” Fallon suggested.

“My advice to you is you get those troops out of Ukraine right now,” responded Palin.

The pair also performed ”Happy” by Pharrell — with Palin miming a flute solo. They closed the skit with Palin bringing Fallon a bottle of vodka because ”Alaska’s not that far from Russia.”
