Saturday Night Live’s Barack Obama mocked the Republicans who still couldn’t beat him on Tuesday, despite having a number of factors on their side.
“This election was yours to lose — 8 percent unemployment, five-dollar gas, I even gave you a one-debate head start,” Obama said. “And on top of that, I’m black. But you still couldn’t take me on.”
He vowed that for his second term, “we do it my way.”
“Republicans, you don’t want to talk about immigration reform? OK. The number of older white men in the country is shrinking,” he said. “Meanwhile, a Hispanic gay woman is born every eight seconds.”
House Speaker John Boehner says he “won’t agree to a tax rate increase of any kind?”
“Fine, you want to be unreasonable, come on, let’s be unreasonable. How about I start here: The military? Gone,” Obama said. “If you want to go to war with Iran, you’re going to have to send in Ted Nugent.”
