Will Ferrell Returns to 'SNL' as George W. Bush, Calls Trump 'Oompa Loompa'
Dubya has spoken.
This is an important day. "George W. Bush" has made a big decision: he's entering the race for president of the United States of America.
Will Ferrell made a triumphant return to Saturday Night Live this weekend, performing for the umpteenth time on the show as Dubya himself. He had a lot to say, all of it boiling down to the fact that Ferrell's "Bush" had decided to run for president in 2016. Here's why:
"The field of Republicans is so messed up, I figured it makes you miss me, doesn't it? And that's saying a lot."
Ferrell's "Bush" went on to address attention to the real-life GOP frontrunners.
Dr. Ben Carson apparently doesn't speak loudly enough; in places like "Azurbadgan," he said, that might be a problem because you need to "speak loudly enough so that they will understand." Also, he's a brain surgeon and "running the country is not brain surgery, okay?"
Carly Fiorina, on the other hand, had "guts." She wasn't qualified in any way to be president, much like Bush himself, and thus, praise be to Fiorina for even giving this whole thing a go.
Next up was the comical duo of Cruz and Rubio, who Ferrell suggested should start up a Miami law firm. "These two guys, the sons of immigrants, hate immigrants." Ferrell's "Bush" enjoyed Tex-Mex, though, so he really couldn't relate.
But perhaps the best segment was his take on "knucklehead" Donald Trump.
"With the hair," he laughed, "and the 100-foot wall...I tell you something, whenever I get in a bad mood, I just picture his big fat oompa loompa face and I just piss my pants."
Ferrell also took a stab at "brother" Jeb, stating that "it's a pretty good plot twist that I turned out to be the smart one."
The long and short of it?
Ferrell's still got it.
