Powered by Topple

Saturday Night Live’s opening skit featured Jay Pharoah in a hilarious recap of the problems President Obama encountered on his visit to South Africa that the press emphasized.

Pharoah, playing President Obama, began by addressing the the three items of controversy coming from the Nelson Mandela memorial: the selfie (Michelle “was furious”), the Raul Castro handshake (“He told me he was Edward James Olmos”) and the fake sign language interpreter.

Then he moved on to “the exciting progress we’re making on out HealthCare.gov website,” complete with sign language interpreter, played by Kenan Thompson – who appears to be the very one used at the Mandela ceremony.

Watch the fun, including a surprise appearance by “Angela Merkel,” then check out A cappella group’s amazing version of ‘Little Drummer Boy’ goes insanely viral.
