Will Ferrell Revives His George W. Bush Impression
Will Ferrell Revives His George W. Bush Impression at Samantha Bee’s ‘Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner
The 49 year old comedian, received a standing ovation as he walked on stage at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, dressed in a navy suit and rocking gray hair. Will Ferrell brought his impersonation of President George W. Bush from his Saturday Night Live heyday to the stage.
“How do you like me now?” Ferrell’s Bush said to loud applause from the audience before launching into a stand-up routine in which he skewered Trump. “The prodigal son has returned. I don’t know what that means but I know it’s positive. It’s very prodigal. Quick presidential update, I’m doing quite well, thank you. History has proven to be kinder to me than many of you thought … For the longest time, I was considered the worst president of all time. That has changed. And it only too 100 days.” He added, “I needed eight years, a catastrophic flood, a war built on a lie, an economic disaster. The new guy needed 100 days. He is widely considered the worst president of all time. I came in second. I’m fine with that. No one remembers second place … I’m the Martin Van Buren of the 21st century!”
Will Ferrell became a cast member of Saturday Night Live in 1995. Believe it or not, he was declared quite possibly the worst cast member ever during his first season. However, his talents of impersonations and range of characters shot him forward to making him arguably the greatest Saturday Night Live cast member ever. During his seven year run he is one of the few cast members to ever be nominated for an Emmy for a performance and played George W. Bush during the 2000 elections. He’s appeared in every Saturday Night Live movie since his premiere on the show in 1995. In 2002 he left Saturday Night Live and was the only cast member to ever receive a farewell from all the current cast members at the end of the season finale show. Since leaving the show Will has pursued a career in films.
