Skip to comments.SNLís President Obama Takes Hilarious Osama Bin Laden Victory Lap/Stand-Up Act
Posted on 05/16/2011 6:33:40 AM PDT by Zakeet
Saturday Night Live opened this weeks show with a parody of CNNs The Situation Room, with Jason Sudeikis doing a dead-on impression of Wolf Blitzer reporting on an absurdist version of President Obamas speech in El Paso this week. Lampooning criticism of the Presidents lone, low-key mention of Osama bin Ladens killing, Fred Armisen delivered an over-the-top Obama smoking, trash-talking, and basically letting it all hang out.
The President has predictably come under fire for mentioning bin Ladens killing during a speech at a DNC event in El Paso, Texas. During the speech, someone in the crowd shouted, Thank you for getting bin Laden, and later in the speech, the President himself referenced the killing of the terrorist leader, praising the professionals who carried out the raid: (via White House email)
And because of the extraordinary bravery of the men and women who wear this nations uniform and the outstanding work of our intelligence agencies, Osama bin Laden will never again threaten the United States of America. (Applause.) We couldnt be prouder of them.
Armisens routine, however, featured a cocky President Obama who decided he would drop the Barack and just be known as President Hussein Obama, and wound up doing a stand-up comedy act, which included a laugh-out-loud funny Jeff Foxworthy reference.
Heres this weeks cold open, from NBCs Saturday Night Live:

Love it! Consider this one forwarded... :-)
Accurate depiction of the arrogant, ego-maniac occupying our WH.
If SNL saw fit to lampoon it, it must have been pretty bad to begin with......................
Bump for later.
Saw it ... didn’t find it all that amusing. SNL is treating the pretender-in-chief with kid gloves.
Saw it, it was good.
