SNL mocks Obama for sequester, lack of budgeting skills

snl-obamaPresident Obama may want to blame Republicans for the sequester, but even ‘Saturday Night Live‘ knows the POTUS is actually the one at fault.

In this week’s cold open, the comedy show featured Obama holding a press conference on the sequester — a topic about which he seems pretty uninformed.

“Most Americans still don’t understand what this whole sequester really means,” Jay Pharoah, as Obama, said. “I could explain it in financial terms or in human terms, but since I really have no idea about how money works, or budgets work, I’ll go with human terms instead.”

Fake Obama went on to explain that the budget cuts were even affecting the White House, forcing First Lady Michelle Obama to cut back her weekly TV show appearances from 75 to four. The President also brought out individuals in different fields who would be affected by the budget cuts, such as border patrol and staffers at the National Zoo. But the Encourager-in-Chief calms the ‘village people’ by reciting lyrics to the YMCA song as they hold their arms in the shape of the letters.

Yet the sequester isn’t really that bad. In nine months, most Americans won’t remember it, Obama said.

“Why?” the POTUS asked. “Because there will be another way worse financial crisis to deal with.”

Ouch. Hitting the nail on the head, ‘SNL.’

    SNL did a parody of CSPAN called bailout just after the orchestrated market crash of 2008 just weeks before the election when McCain-Palin were pulling ahead in the polls. The parody clearly laid blame for the housing crisis on democrats. George Sors and Herb and MArion Saunders were lillified in the skit and Barney Frank portrayed as the A-hole he is. But George Soros didn’t like it and the video was censored on the SNL website. Since then Seth Meyers has been a coward regarding political satire. There is so much Obama sounbd be mocked for but Soros is a very powerful and evil man. He controls the global leftist media and intends to keep the entertainment industry working for his interests.
