Will Ferrell opened Saturday Night Live last night by reprising his popular role as former president George W. Bush to reveal that he’s running for president. Normally we would run away in fear, but by the time he’s finished throwing shade at the current GOP lineup, having him back for another term might not be so bad.
He states, “The field of Republicans out there is so messed up, I figured you all miss me, don’t you?”
He proceeds to destroy each GOP candidate one by one including Dr. Ben Carson (“I can barely hear him when he talks!”), Carly Fiorina (“She’s not qualified to be president…reminds me of me”), and Jeb Bush (“It’s a pretty good plot twist that I turned out to be the smart one”).
He then turned his attention on the one-and-only Donald Trump.
“I’ll tell you something, whenever I’m feeling bad, I just picture his big bad Oompa Loompa face and I just piss my pants,” he said, calling Trump a “knucklehead.” Ouch!
If Ferrel-as-Bush shade brigade didn’t convince you to put your trust back in Bush his strong closing argument will.
“Running a government is kind of like driving a school bus. You don’t want a crazy person driving that bus,” he starts. “You want a simple, underachieving, not very educated by reliable guy behind the wheel. Someone with a steady hand who will be on time and get into one or two but no more than four accidents a year. That someone is me”
There you have it. #Bush2016!
