SNL Bashes Obama, Stimulus, Healthcare and Cash for Clunkers

November 22nd, 2009 10:38 AM

NBC's "Saturday Night Live" really went after President Obama in its opening sketch Saturday evening.

Not only that, his policies involving economic stimulus, healthcare reform, and Cash for Clunkers were also exposed as having absolutely no positive or future impact on unemployment.

The setup was Obama, played by Fred Armisen, doing a press conference with Chinese President Hu Jintao, played by Bill Hader.

As Jintao, through interpreter played by Nasim Pedrad, realized how much money the United States owes China, he questioned how we were going to pay them back if Obama's policies "to save money involve spending even more money."

Realizing he's being lied to, Jintao asked Obama to kiss him - "I like to be kissed when someone is doing sex to me!" (video embedded below the fold courtesy Story Balloon):

Nice bit, but the Chinese President continuously bending over was a bit overdone.

That said, it is nice to see the folks at "SNL" continuing to bash the man NBC helped become President.

Exit question: Will CNN and other so-called news outlets fact-check this skit?
