‘Keeping an eye on Russia’: Internet loses it over pic of Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent and Kid Rock at White House
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Wednesday visited the White House with musicians Ted Nugent and Kid Rock.

Palin posted photos from her visit, which were widely mocked on social media. Many users related the picture to her infamous 2008 interview, where then-vice presidential candidate Palin suggested Alaska’s proximity to Russia means “they’re [her] next-door neighbor.”
That statement was panned by pundits and comics, most notable SNL’s Tina Fey, who played Palin on the sketch comedy show. During one segment, Fey-as-Palin proudly proclaimed, “I can see Russia from my house!”
Trump has his fair share of connections to Russia; the FBI is currently investigating whether Trump officials coordinated with Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential election.

Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent and Kid Rock were guests at the White House, which helps explain why they don't want to release the visitor logs.

Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house, so Trump’s basically a next-door neighbor.
