Skip to comments.Vlad Putin Calls Sarah Palin in What Might End Up One of Your Favorite ‘Tonight Show’ Skits Ever
Posted on 04/03/2014 10:12:31 AM PDT by xzins
In a seriously hilarious skit on The Tonight Show Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin (Jimmy Fallon) called up former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to talk about her impressive 2008 prediction that he would invade Ukraine.
We dont want to give too much away, but Palin also busts a flute solo and President Barack Obama gets caught trying to listen in on their phone call.
Then theres this side-splitting one-liner from Putin: I come from strong genes. President Obama, he comes from mom jeans.
Trust us, you want to watch it all the way through.
I was totally surprised by it
This is seriously worth watching....hysterical...and very positive toward Sarah Palin...and very critical of Obama
I was totally surprised by it
Very good skit.
I was surprized, and may start watching the show.
There is the habit of never watching networks, which will need to be broken, but seriously it was a good skit.
Keep up the good work Tonight Show.
I expected bland or negative but got insightful and poignant and funny. It was good stuff from beginning to end.
sometime next week Willard will claim he predicted this...
It was funny. I heard about it yesterday here on FR, so I tuned in.
It was not only the first time I ever saw Fallon’s show, it was the first time in several years I’d watched anything on NBC/ABC/CBS/FOX (other than some local news and weather) in several years. Honestly.
I was very surprised, (PLEASANTLY!) too.
I already pinged her list to another similar thread.
If this keeps up, I might have to view Jimmy Fallon differently.
That is a lovely lady.
When you’ve lost late nite talk ....
Seriously this is bad for the zero. He’s lost the “cool” appeal. He’s becoming fair game for even his late night cohorts.
Not that conservatives or conservatism will ever be cool, but now the left is in scramble mode looking for the next one to distract the sheeple. I suspect the Secretary of Cankles is set up pretty good now for 2016.
That woman just keeps getting better looking!
Fallon needs some work but Sarah is hot!
Why can’t conservatism be cool?
What is it about believing in America which is out of favor, and what is it about not rooting for our side, which is ‘cool’.
I think this is 100% the right side. We just need to also be for American jobs, then we’re set.
I haven’t watched the show in years though I did watch this clip via a news article on the subject. I also watched clips of Fallon with Billy Joel a few weeks ago. He is very talented and entertaining.
I think Jimmy realized he was now seen as a complete ‘White House Approved Tool of Propaganda, and is starting to walk that kissing up stuff back. He hopes it’s not too late. I’ll bet he still slavishly ‘warned Obama’ that there would be some Palin happening and his name would be uttered. Nice skit, Sarah didn’t overplay it or act over the top silly.
Didn’t know Sarah could play the flute.
Todd’s a lucky guy.
The best part was that twice, he mentioned that Palin had predicted in 2008 an invasion of Ukraine. The LIVs probably don’t know anything about that, and by making that a key point of the skit, it helps to offset the media driven caricature of her.
Plus, the NSA reference, linked directly to Obama, can’t hurt with younger voters, as well as those of us who recognize the danger of this kind of governmental intrusion.
Its funny because its relevant, and there is truth in it.
When it comes to actors and musicians, I don’t frankly care what they believe until they force it on me. Just do what you do, entertain. Nobody is above ridicule. In a free society, even dear leader is fair game. There have been so many missed comedic opportunities because Hollywood and the media have both refused to point out the obvious shortcomings of this administration. And that’s just sad.
Think about the definition of “cool” -
it means - “in that state of rebellion to traditional values just below the point of being seen as dangerous”.
Conservatism IS about traditional values - because they’re proven successful.
I thought the NSA reference made Obama look positively pathetic. That was the BEST part.
Sarah Palin is HOT - H-O-T HOT!!!
I was shocked that the audience gave Sarah a huge ovation..they were loving it..figured that his audience was majority liberal so that was a surprise..the skit was HILARIOUS I had to watch it twice..Sarah has such a great sense of humor
Poking at the Won.
Few have dared to be the court jester.
Well when it is conservative to be liberal, cool has a place.
Believe it or not, I understood what you meant!
I mean look what “traditional values” are now. They are 50 shades of raunchy.
If you ain’t rebelling against that you are the fuddy-duddy.
and one lucky Husband!
Sarah Palin for president. Why should she keep on being shy?
The RINOs and the media Rats keep implying Romney said that first, it was a "home run" by Sarah.
She nailed it.!
You been hanging out at the Greg Gutfeld Fox News Book of the Month Club?
“Now, if Moochelle played the flute, wouldn’t we all know it by now?”
Well, Mooch has a garden. She might even make a fair field hand.
Sarah is 50? Damn she looks good in this!
I’m glad you find it amusing... but I don’t get it.
We need to start a new slogan: I was a conservative, when Conservative wasn’t cool. To the tune of Barbara Mandel’s - I was country, when country wasn’t cool. We need to turn this around so people will want to be considered cool! JMO, of course.
Sarah is what the former Ann Coulter nuts around here only dreamed of seeing.
Sarah versus Ann
Woman versus Anorexia
Brains versus Brassy
Greg Gutfeld (3 am Fox “Red Eye”) just wrote a book that he’s been hawking on Fox News for the last two weeks. The title of his book is “Cool”
Awesome........Jimmy Fallon has learned very quickly that POTUS Obama is nothing but a horse’s butt in the eyes of the overwhelming majority of American voters. Like Jay Leno....looks like he gets it....unlike NBC, CNBC & MSNBC!!! Luv’d it...Mr. Fallon!!! And amazing that Sarah Palin is in a great comfort zone in front of the camera....a natural born ham and actress!!! Wonderful!!!
OK, thanks for the explanation...
Is the gist of it anywhere close to my definition?
I haven’t read the book, but I heard Gutfeld give a brief summary the other day, and Mr B, you could have been his ghost writer. It sounded dead on.
That’s why your post tripped my memory.
