[VIDEO] Saturday Night Live skit with Martin Luther King highlights Beyoncé at Obama’s inauguration

NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” decided to bring Martin Luther King, Jr. back from the dead this weekend to give America’s newly re-elected President Barack Obama, (played once again by “SNL’s” Jay Pharoah), some sound advice on his inauguration day.

As always, MLK knew exactly what to say… like how hot Beyoncé looked when she was singing, er, lip-syncing the national anthem and how Michelle Obama’s new bangs were not exactly the kind of change Obama promised America.

Kenan Thompson played Dr. King, arguably the most influential person of the civil rights movement.

Once fake Obama finally settled into his armchair with a frosty pint of brew after being sworn in for a second term, the fake MLK suddenly appears in a cloud of smoke much like a ghost in ‘The Christmas Carol.'” Guess that would make Obama… Scrooge.

Before MLK departed the scene, he reminded Obama that the he may be our first black president but “there’s still not a single black child in the band One Direction.” He has a point.

Thank you, Dr. King for your words of wisdom, in case the state of our country wasn’t desperate enough.

You can watch the fake MLK’s inspirational speech below.

    Keenan Thompson was pretty funny as MLK. I loved his comment about One Direction as well. I wasn’t able to see the show live since I was working at DISH that night. I set my DISH Hopper DVR to record SNL for me a while back, so I still saw it before it was spoiled by Twitter. My roommates always see it on TV live and I watch it the next morning, so it’s nice knowing that we can watch four shows on different TVs in our home thanks to the whole-home DVR.
