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.
“What would you need Alaska for?” he said, advising Russians “not be overenthusiastic” about the state.
“Mr. Putin, such a silly little man on this matter of invading Alaska,” Palin said in a written statement to Breitbart News, pointing out that it was obvious that Russia got “screwed” after selling the land to the United States in 1867 for $7.2 million. …
Palin reminded Putin that many Russians leave their country to start a new life in Alaska.
“So many legal immigrants from Russia craving freedom and opportunity work tirelessly to leave your country and start a new life in America’s largest state, but I’ve yet to meet an Alaskan scurrying to relocate to Russia, and that ought to tell you something,” she said.
