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.”

This tweet, from CNN's Chris Cilizza, is a nice illustration of the genre: Donald ... Read More

Our Long National Hysteria 

Our long national hysteria may not be over, but at least it should — by rights — be diminished. Robert Mueller delivered his long-awaited report on Friday, and Attorney General William Barr just released his summary of the findings. They completely vindicate President Trump regarding the allegation that ... Read More
