Saturday Night Lives cold open featured President Barack Obama (played by Jay Pharoah) passionately kissing Justin Bieber (played by Kate McKinnon) in a last ditch effort to boost healthcare enrollment.
Lampooning Presidents Obamas hilarious and effective appearance on Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, SNL showed a desperate President Obama being photographed in Pharrells hat, as well as with Kim Kardashian, Harry Styles and Bat Kid.
Obama and Pope Francis also do it for the Vine, with both men doing popular Atlanta dance the Nae Nae to gain youth support.
All these ideas were pitched by a social media expert played by Noel Wells whose goal was to recreate the bump to Healthcare.gov caused by Obamas appearance on Between Two Ferns.
Watch SNLs full Obamacare cold open below:
Though Obamacare remains unpopular with conservatives, the White House released a statement saying that more than 6 million Americans have signed up for coverage.
The Affordable Care Act is working, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California asserted in a statement. Republicans should abandon their reckless pursuit of new milestones in the number of votes to repeal or undermine this historic law.
Though the deadline for enrollment is technically Monday, March 31, applications for millions of people who have begun the process by that date but have had difficulties signing up must be received by April 7.
Pelosi: liar, liar, pantyhose on fire

BS. Voicing what the libs are most afraid of. That their Mark of the Beast plan will fail.
Jay Pharoah should watch his back. Remember what happened to Steve Bridges after he mocked The Won?
If the SNL-Obama really wanted to get people signed-up, he should have gone full Lewinsky on the SNL-Beiber
An allergy, ‘tis said.
I saw the skit. It really didn’t mock 0bama. He was more the stiff straight man.
Hilarious, yes. Effective, no. "What's it like to be the last black president?"

That’s one of the dumbest things I’ve seen.
Loved the Justin Beiber portrayal.
SNL has been in the bag for Obama for years; any (soft) shots at him are done far from any elections. SNL is for working low-information voters what daytime TV is for the ones sitting at home all day...
