Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin made a surprise appearance on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” Wednesday night where she joined host Jimmy Fallon in a skit mocking President Barack Obama’s weakness.

In the skit, Fallon played Russian President Vladimir Putin in a phone conversation with Palin.

“You shoot bear? I prefer hand-to-hand combat,” Fallon says, playing Putin.

“Well, you see, that’s why everyone says you’re such a strong leader,” Palin replies.

“Well, I come from strong genes,” Fallon’s Putin retorts. “President Obama — he come from mom jeans.”

Both Palin and the faux Putin then erupt in laughter.

The two also poked fun of Obama over the National Security Agency spying controversy.

“Wait, wait — I hear breathing on other end of phone. Maybe it’s NSA spying on us,” Fallon’s Putin says, prompting more laughter from Palin. An Obama impersonator then appears on the screen listening to the phone call before quickly hanging up.
