Will Ferrell SNL
This weekend, Saturday Night Live featured a surprise guest: Will Ferrell as George W. Bush.
Bush wanted to use the SNL platform to make a major announcement.
“I’m entering the race for President of the United States of America,” he declared.
He went on to explain why he thinks he deserves to be commander-in-chief again.
The field of Republicans out there is so messed up, it makes you miss me,” he said.
And so, he went on to poke fun of the republican candidates:
Dr. Ben Carson: “I can barely hear him when he talks. That’s not gonna work when you have to go to China… where you have to talk loudly to they can understand.”
Carly Fiorina: “She got guts. She got fired from her job… She’s not qualified in any ways to be president. In many ways she reminds me of me. But she isn’t me; I am me.”
Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio: “Rubio & Cruz sounds like a Miami law firm. If you’ve been injured on the job, call Rubio & Cruz. These two guys, the son of immigrants, hate immigrants.”
Donald Trump: “Whenever I get in a bad mood, I just picture his big, fat, orange Oompa Loompa face and I just piss my pants.”
Jeb Bush: “You gotta admit, it’s a pretty good plot twist that I turned out to be the smart one. I wish he would’ve asked me about the exclamation point at the end of his name. Look, I don’t like the taste of broccoli, but it doesn’t get any tastier if you call it “Broccoli!”.
And so Ferrell’s George W. made the case for why he should return to the Oval Office:
“Running the government is kinda like driving a school bus: You don’t want a crazy person driving that bus. You want a simple, underachieving, not-very-educated but reliable guy behind that wheel. Someone with a steady hand that will be on time, and get into one or two, but no more than four accidents a year. You already know that someone. That someone is me. I’ll see you in the White House.”
