In a 2008 interview with ABC News, Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska, commented that Russia could be seen from certain areas of her home state. A few days later, "Saturday Night Live" spoofed the exchange with the hyperbolic claim, "I can see Russia from my house." Palin was publicly ridiculed for the comment and became the butt of many subsequent jokes. Among those who teased her was Arnold Schwarzenegger, who tweeted that he was flying over Alaska but was unable to see Russia. Palin tweeted back an unabashedly snippy response criticizing Schwarzenegger's apparent subpar efforts as governor of California. The Twitter feud ended there, but the two have been known to speak candidly about each other on numerous occasions.
