In this most recent SNL skit President Obama was skewered… royally. It’s as if the SNL writers downloaded my thoughts on President Obama’s recent Asia trip, or what is sometimes referred to as his World Apology Tour: Asia Edition, and wrote this skit
The sarcasm is biting and the humor is hilarious.
The question is, why does it seem that his base is turning on him? Are they realizing that their previous efforts to poke fun at President Obama failed miserably so they turned it up a notch? Or is this genuine creative license that sometimes hits or miss and in this instance it hit? Or are they really upset with the excessive spending that President Obama is pushing for?
My guess is that it’s their creative license that finally hit its mark. I like SNL, but watch it infrequently now that I don’t even have rabbit ears on my tv set to watch the broadcast networks.
This skit certainly got me to smile and lifted up my day ever so briefly.
The most memorable line from this skit is:
“I am noticing that each of your plans to save money involves spending even more money.”
