Video: Fallon pokes fun at Obama with … Sarah Palin?

posted at 10:01 am on April 3, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Maybe Jimmy Fallon really does want to follow Jay Leno’s tradition of full-political-spectrum comedy. Earlier this week, Fallon ripped Barack Obama for his victory lap on ObamaCare, and last night he invited Sarah Palin to join him in this four-minute mockfest of Obama’s foreign-policy acumen. Palin is a good sport here, joking about the unusual names of her children at one point, but the subtext throughout this is that Palin was smart enough to see through Vladimir Putin — and Obama wasn’t. Watch for a cameo from “Obama” near the end (via Katie Pavlich):

Of course, as with all things Palin, her Tonight Show appearance sparked passion on line … especially from her detractors. Twitchy cataloged some of the worst of the social-media remarks, where full-political-spectrum comedy gets less than full-spectrum appreciation. Here are a couple of the cleaner comments:

And so on. The most interesting aspect of this for me is what it promises from Fallon and the new Tonight Show perspective. Even if the segment sags a bit in the middle, committing a whole segment to having Palin make fun of Obama is remarkable … especially for NBC.

The same people whose heads are exploding this morning over Palin’s appearance were perfectly fine with Fallon slow jamming the news with Obama two years ago (and in 2012, Obama was running for office, while here, Palin’s just promoting her new TV show).

I was busting a gut when she walked up and handed him the bottle of vodka. Priceless sendup of the whole “I can see Russia…” canard.

CurtZHP on April 3, 2014 at 10:11 AM

Cool. But you know he’ll make up for it by kissing up to Obama later, so…

changer1701 on April 3, 2014 at 10:13 AM

I really don’t see the need for NOT being an equal-opportunity basher–so long as you’re jabs are justified. My sense is that conservatives don’t mind fair jabbing. It’s the liberals who can’t stand it.

Fallon gains more by driving down the middle of the road while jabbing both sides justifiably.

Mark Boabaca on April 3, 2014 at 10:17 AM

Not going to watch it.

1. Personally, I find Jimmy Fallon as amusing as a pet rock.

2. IMHO, Sarah Palin’s Obama zingers are better when they’re natural and unscripted.

Flora Duh on April 3, 2014 at 10:18 AM

I was really laughing my ass off when she delivered the bottle of Stoli from Alaska to Russia, of course I was having a few beers at the time…

OmahaConservative on April 3, 2014 at 10:19 AM

I love the fact that Sarah has a way of making liberals expose themselves for what they truly are….mean spirited and very ugly people.

Cherokee on April 3, 2014 at 10:20 AM

Palin is a great sport. Like her, be indifferent to her, or despise her.

Who wouldn’t want her as a next-door neighbor?

BuckeyeSam on April 3, 2014 at 10:20 AM

NBC (subcommittee of the DNC) will now try to tack to the middle as much as possible in order to appease the idiot GOP which will once again play Charlie Brown to Lucy’s football!

Now that Obamabi has been re-elected and Obamacare has been given the “Mission Accomplished!” wall-to-wall news coverage, the lefty media needs to do a little course correction.

Of course, as I said, the GOP fools will go right back to trying to win the media’s affection. The GOP is essentially the abused wife who declares to the emergency room doctor, “He beats me because he loooooves me…..”

Pathetic.

powerpickle on April 3, 2014 at 10:23 AM

How is it possible that she just keeps getting prettier and classier?

Professor Blather on April 3, 2014 at 10:23 AM

Not a huge fan of either one of them but it was very funny.
Nice to have a laugh after the events of the last couple of days.
When she stood up with the vodka, I kept smacking Mr Jomama on the arm
and saying “look at how good she looks!”
(so ok yeah I’m a teensy bit jealous)

Jomama on April 3, 2014 at 10:24 AM

Hmm. Sounds like Fallon’s show is not long for this world. Just like with Mozilla and Firefox, liberals cannot stand dissent, so Fallon’s either got to prostrate himself like soon, or he’s going to get the axe in favor of Piers Morgan, probably. Or Olbermann.

Nutstuyu on April 3, 2014 at 10:34 AM

I was disappointed when Leno was sent packing and had little to no, interest in watching Fallon, who I perceive as a hopeless ‘Progressive’ who would skew his show in that direction, 100% of the time. I have, somewhat, been ‘heartened’ by several of his more ‘balanced’ skits. Esp liked this one. Of course, The One’s admin is so ripe for snark, where do you start? I read some of the lefty diatribes and journeys into luridness and profanity ref the skit – right in character for that ilk. ‘Precious’ the way they seem so unable to see the ironies and blatant projection of their ‘feelings’ and blathering. It seems Fallon may be biting the bullet a bit and trying to hold onto a wider audience. Just wish he’d get away from his monotone presentation of the monologue.

vnvet on April 3, 2014 at 10:35 AM

Funny skit…But I wouldn’t put any serious thought into Fallon changing his Pro-Obama crease sniffing stripes.

[Jill Kuraitis:] Jimmy Fallon just showcased the idiot Sarah Palin AND flogged her TV show.

Fallon “flogged” Sarah Palin’s show? Last time I checked the dictionary, “to flog” meant to beat or to whip, like what Pilate had done to Jesus. If Kuraitis hates Palin so much, she should be happy if Fallon “flogged” her show. But in the use of the English language, Kuraitis is more of an “idiot” than Palin.

[Carol Terry:] However, there are just some things up with which we will not put.

A convoluted phrase too long for a tweet. Has Terry not heard of the word “tolerate”?

Here we have lefties who can’t use the English language, calling Sarah Palin an “idiot”, when Sarah Palin predicted the Russian invasion of Ukraine over five years ago.

Of course, as with all things Palin, her Tonight Show appearance sparked passion on line … especially from her detractors.

I’ve never understood the absolute hatred of Palin’s “detractors.” It is way out of proportion to anything the woman has said or done. If I am charitable, I’d say they are a ignorant group, bless their hearts.

Happy Nomad on April 3, 2014 at 10:52 AM

CurtZHP on April 3, 2014 at 10:11 AM

The Russia thing never goes away. I was surprised at the gross ignorance because it is true there is a point on Alaskan soil where you can see Russia.

We were taught in grade school that Alaska was the only American State where you can actually see Russia. The Bering Strait at that point is only 55 miles between mainlands, and Russian and Alaskan islands are less than two and a half miles apart. You could take it home from your trip, that ‘I saw Russia’

I feel Palin missed big on this one. Tour guides and Alaskan politicians both work the joke. She played it like an Alaskan pol, but the spin meisters used her own lack of explanation against her to ‘prove’ she was an idiot, to the ignorant.

This has taken root in the unlearned, and now is the big proof Palin doesnt have a brain, as the twitter responses show.

She would never convince some, but she lost momentum with the way this was played, and IMHO even now she ought to unspin the urban legend, say, as a way to promote the wonders of Alaska, with a warm invite to everyone who laughed at her to come on and see for themselves

A small hook can destroy a big fish

It’s because she’s a conservative with boatloads of charisma. As long as she breathes, she’s dangerous. A crucifix to vampires.

ddrintn on April 3, 2014 at 10:56 AM

If Palin was 70 pounds heavier & looked like Clair McCaskill Women voters would like her better. A fair number of Republican women would like her better as well. I think bluegill’s husband starred a little too long at Palin once, thus the unfiltered hatred.

Not even considering Palin:

As I recall Leno’s numbers were ho-hum until he started offering a bit of Conservative flavored humor, and watched his ratings shoot to #1 with some show recaps on FoxNews and Rush and Conservative websites.
I’ve sort of pictured the Tonight Show as geared to people a wee but older than college age and didn’t think Fallon would play at all with them. Disaster. He sure as he’ll better be Conservative friendly or at least fair or he can join Ronan Farrow in the ratings basement or Pierce Bigmouth.

She’s grammatically correct. It’s the proper construction of that phrase to avoid ending in a preposition. I must confess to feeling a little hope for humanity every time I hear someone use that phrase correctly.

Now if everyone can just stop saying “mute” point I will go to my grave a happy man.

My take (h/t kingjester). She’s the quintessential self-made woman, who appears to “have-it-all.” It’s what the left preached that they wanted for women, but so many liberal women limited their life choices to trying to be men instead of well-rounded women, and now they are childless, alone and bitter about it. Palin is the perfect target for their self-hatred.

you act as if that person really was putin and not an actor! it is just a comedy segment, so don’t take it seriously.

Palin looks and acts like a fool in that segment.

it’s called “being funny,” maybe you should learn how to do it…

If Palin was 70 pounds heavier & looked like Clair McCaskill Women voters would like her better. A fair number of Republican women would like her better as well. I think bluegill’s husband starred a little too long at Palin once, thus the unfiltered hatred.

thanks a lot for buying into the “women are jealous and obsessed with looks” generalization. a lot of republican women already like sarah, including me. i think it’s great that she’s attractive- it is one of the many things that sets her apart from most other politicians.

Awright Sarah

I love the fact that Sarah has a way of making liberals expose themselves for what they truly are….mean spirited and very ugly people.

I’ll buy that. And Hillary is their idol. If she becomes president she affirms their choices.
