Will Ferrell revived his infamous George W. Bush impersonation during last night’s Not The White House Correspondents’ Dinner and it was a hit!
The lengthy sketched poked fun at Donald Trump for being less liked than Bush was. “For the longest time, I was considered the worst President of all time. That has changed,” Ferrell joked.
“I needed eight years of catastrophic flood, a war built on a lie, an economic disaster. The new guy needed a hundred days. He’s now widely considered the worst President of all time. I come in second. I’m fine with that, no one remembers second place,” he added.
The House star didn’t stop there. Ferrell touched on his frustrations with the press and even threw in a little dig at FOX News. “I gotta be honest, I’m not sure why anyone would wanna become a journalist now. It’s like being on the Titanic — in this room, Washington Post, New York Times, Boston Herald — the iceberg is coming for you. You guys are hanging on to your journalistic integrity. Playing with violins until some the ship goes down. You should see what they would do over at Fox and Friends. Those guys are dressing up like women and children and stealing the lifeboats,” he quipped.
Ferrell went on to clown President Trump’s fashion sense and frequent trips to Mar-a-Lago.
