Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin joked on the "Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Show" about a potential bid for the White House in 2016 with Donald Trump as her running mate.
"How much do you think Lorne Michaels would pay me if I were to run in 2016?" Palin asked comedian Jerry Seinfeld during a question and answer session on the Sunday night show.
"I don't think there's a number too big," said Seinfeld to a round of laughter from the star-studded audience.
Palin then asked, "What if I were to choose Donald Trump as my running mate?"
"Sarah, you’re teasing us. That’s not nice," Seinfeld said, raising more laughs.
Palin appeared on NBC’s "Saturday Night Live," produced by Michaels, during her vice presidential bid in 2008 alongside her TV impersonator, Tina Fey, according to TalkingPointsMemo
Recently, Palin has alluded to the possibility that she would be interested in running for president in 2016
Trump has made repeated references
in the past few months, and prior to the 2012 elections, that he would be keen on running for the Oval Office.
The real estate mogul, in fact, was recently booked as the keynote speaker at the Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner in Pottawattamie County, Iowa, an early presidential voting state.
In this footage from the SNL special on Sunday night, Palin pops up around the sixth minute of Seinfeld’s segment on the show.
