"Saturday Night Live" devoted its opening sketch to what was last week's most bizarre story: the scandal surrounding the sign language interpreter who said he has schizophrenia and was hallucinating while signing at Nelson Mandela's memorial service.

My God, I wish I had the time but I could have re-edited the actual footage with a complete epic translation.....”I WAS BORN IN KENYA! OK I ADMIT IT...BUT I’M A MARXIST AND A DEMOCRAT...SAME THING...AND THE PRESS PROTECTS ME..” stuff like that. DOH! That would have been awesome. I also have a friend who can imitate the Kenyans voice perfectly! Then add some crowd sounds LOL
I’m sure some FReeper just might do that and post it to GoogTube!
I saw it. I thought SNL was, once again, kind to Obama. They mocked Merkel & the signer, but Obama was the most normal one. I have yet to see SNL really mock him.
And those same collectivists will welcome the global dictator/false messiah with open arms when he goes public.
If you post it, ping us. It could be the new “Hitler Finds Out...” viral vid.
That could be a good ‘Hitler’ rant! (Work in that selfie and the Mooch blowin’ a fuse to!).
Jantjie clearly had no idea what he was doing,
Neither does Obama.
One man’s perceived incompetence is another man’s agenda.
