Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin fired back against Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday calling him a “silly little man” after he said that he was not interested in invading Alaska.
Putin downplayed the value of Alaska during a question-and-answer session in Moscow today, pointing out that it was a cold northern territory.
Palin reminded Putin that many Russians leave their country to start a new life in Alaska.
Palin also pointed out that Putin that Alaska was rich with natural resources.
Palin warned Putin away from the idea, reminding him that she could keep a close eye on his movements.
As the Republican vice presidential candidate, Palin was mocked by the media in 2008 for suggesting that Putin might invade Ukraine if President Obama was elected president.
