Sequester Jokes (Video) and President Obama Parody from SNL
SNL has found some humor in the sequester spending cuts and picks on President Obama as too clueless to understand the budget - watch the video below from last night's Saturday Night Live.
In Washington, DC, President Barack Obama and the Republican Party are still arguing over who to blame for the spending cuts now being enacted under the sequester deal signed by President Barack Obama on March 1, but Saturday Night Live has taken a look from the lighter side and jokes about the issue.
The quick parody intro to Saturday Night Live features Jay Pharaoh as President Obama, explaining a long list of upcoming cuts.
"I could explain it in financial terms or human terms," the 'president' says.
"But since I really have no idea about how money works, or budgets work, I'll go with human terms instead."
Some of the pain?
“From now on, my wife Michelle will only do four television appearances a week, down from her usual 75,” 'Obama' said.
The sequester will hit many people in many different areas of employment and the president makes that point by bringing on a a sailor, a highway patrolman, a construction worker and a Native American (all sporting Village People mustaches) to show many people will be affected by the cuts.
'Obama' tries to raise the spirits of the soon to be furloughed or unemployed 'Village People saying,
"Young men, there’s no need to feel down."
