SNL Obama Skit Takes Rare Shots at the Prez

by at . Comments

On Saturday Night Live over the weekend, Lady Gaga and Madonna went at it in a cat fight for the ages. But it was a sketch about President Obama that got some of his supporters on the left of the political spectrum fired up.

SNL Obama skits are typically mixed bags, since:

  • Fred Armisen is funny, but looks and acts nothing like Barack Obama
  • He inspires strong opinions, but B.O. doesn't offer comedic material

Well, this week's SNL Obama skit was more attention-grabbing than usual, as it was one of the first that in which the show really went to town on him.

Sure, the skit slammed Republicans for calling Barack Obama a socialist ... but their reasoning is that you can't be a socialist if you don't do anything.

The skit that opened the show ripped Obama's lack of achievements since taking office, even poking fun at him for failing to get Chicago the Olympics.

Unfair to expect him to deliver on lofty promises in nine months? Probably. Factually accurate, however? Indeed. Check it out and see what you think ...

...One more thing, you know who's foul hand is surely at work here? Oh, you wretched malefactor, you devilish fiend, you King of Transgressions. I call on all in our faith to pool all of our Congregations from the ACLU, ACORN, every single worker's Union in the country, France, just France and the fiercest wings of our Obama faithful...the gays! This fellowship of the faithful shall amass and smash the Anti-Obama as foretold in scripture! We will stand lockstep and crush the evil one, the first of the fallen, the morning star...the one known as ...George W. Bush! Hail Obama!

What! what! what?!?! I am absolutely sputtering with indignant, sanctimonious rage! How dare those vile upstarts from SNL betray everything they had previously stood for and mock our leader! He is not merely a President, not merely the greatest leader of this or any age, not merely the fruition of the coming of The One True Messiah! He is the Alpha, The Omega. The Tutti di tutti. He is well, like The Matrix. He is in short...EVERYTHING that is good in this Universe. The only thing wrong with awarding him The Nobel Peace prize is that they didn't give him TWO Nobel Prizes! Cry Havoc!

"Are you that lazy that you need government to take care of your health" I totally agree with Phil here. Why are you so lazy, to expect doctors to cure you. People should make surgery on themselves. Either government takes care of your health, or an insurance company you pay, and who would throw you under the bus in no time if it is worth to them.

I don't it's fair how they blamed him for the 2016 Olympics - even if it is a skit. He worked so hard for that and everyone should still be proud to have him as their president!
