Sarah Palin on Monday blasted President Barack Obama’s “weak leadership” on the situation in Ukraine, saying the perception of Obama across the globe is of a guy in “mom jeans.”

“Look, the perception of Obama, of him and his potency across the world is one of such weakness,” Palin told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil. They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates.”

Palin, who gloated about her 2008 prediction that Russia would be spurred on to invade Ukraine after it occupied parts of Georgia, criticized Obama for “leading from behind” and said other countries are starting to take advantage of his weakness on foreign policy.

The former vice presidential nominee also hit Obama on energy policy. Arguing for the Keystone XL pipeline, Palin said that when the U.S. can no longer “feed others with our resources,” those nations turn toward resource-rich countries like Russia.

As for Putin’s movements in Ukraine being criticized as unlawful, Palin said the Kremlin leader should respond the same way she says “liberals” justify their actions in the United States: by calling them “executive orders.”
