Comedian Will Ferrell dusted off his famous impression of former president George W. Bush on Saturday Night Live over the weekend and announced in the show’s opening that he’s entering the 2016 presidential race.
“This is an important day. I’ve made a big decision. I’m entering the race for President of the United States of America,” Ferrell, as Bush, declared. The field of Republicans out there is so messed up I figured it makes you miss me, doesn’t it?”
Ferrell took shots at all the Republican candidates.
“Rubio & Cruz sounds like a Miami law firm. If you’ve been injured on the job, call Rubio & Cruz. These two guys, the son of immigrants, hate immigrants.”
He said he can barely hear Ben Carson when he talks.
“I’ll tell you something, that’s not gonna work when you have to go to China or Azerbaijan where you have to TALK LOUDLY so they will understand,” Bush exclaimed in his exaggerated Texas accent.
Fiorina “got guts,” he continued. “She got fired from her job. She’s not qualified in any ways to be president. In many ways she reminds me of me. But she isn’t me; I am me.”
Ferrell called GOP front-runner Donald Trump a “knucklehead,” and joked that when he’s in a bad mood, “I just picture his big fat orange Oompa Loompa face and I just piss my pants.”
“W” concluded his monologue lambasting his brother and the Republican voters.
“You have to admit, it’s a pretty good plot twist that I turned out to be the smart one,” he said. “[Jeb] doesn’t stand a chance in this field. He’s an insider that knows how to govern. The Republican voters don’t want that. They want someone who is koo-koo for coo-coo puffs.”
