Jimmy Fallon and Sarah Palin Phone Call Sketch Mocks Obama

On Wednesday’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the late night host reprised his role as Vladimir Putin in the show’s popular recurring sketch featuring the surly Russian President.

In a previous version of the skit in March, Jimmy Fallon channeled his inner Putin and placed a call to President Obama, played by comedian Dion Flynn, to discuss the tense situation in Ukraine in a hilarious parody of a real call between the two leaders.

In last night’s sketch, which picks up where the previous episode left off, Jimmy Fallon’s Putin hangs up with Obama and places a call to someone with a little more foreign policy smarts, someone who in 2008 predicted that Russia would invade Ukraine:

Former Alaska governor and former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin (playing herself).

The duo of Putin and Palin proceed to humorously mock a number of things: President Obama and his mom jeans, Palin’s preference for unconventional children’s names, and NSA spying.

Putin and Palin even perform a little duet together, a rendition of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, with Putin playing the traditional Russian balalaika and Palin piping in on the flute.

All of this was to promote “Mama Grizzly’s” new show on the Sportsman Channel called Amazing America with Sarah Palin, which debuts tonight at 8pm.
