Will Ferrell Returns to SNL to Hilariously Remind Us That George W. Bush ‘Was Really Bad’
Will Ferrell Takes Us Down Memory Lane
One of the more surprising polling results we have seen since racist Republican Donald Trump has become president, has been the renewed approval of George W. Bush. It seems as time goes on, people are forgetting just how bad things were when he walked out of the White House.
Please share this! We need your help to get the truth out.
But Saturday Night Live gave us the reminder many people seem to need about the former president’s administration. And they turned to legendary Bush imitator Will Ferrell for the role.

Ferrell mentions the polling to begin, some of which have shown Bush with a nearly +30 net approval rating. This is a complete reversal from his last year in office, during which his net approval went as low as -46. (Full video below)
Now I don’t know if you’ve read the news lately, I certainly have not…but according to a new poll, my approval rating is at an all-time high…Donny Q. Trump came in and suddenly, I’m looking pretty sweet by comparison…I’m suddenly popular AF.
Ferrell then takes a shot at the wars started under George W. Bush, moves that played a key role in starting ISIS.
I just wanted to address my fellow Americans tonight and remind you guys that I was really bad. Like, historically not good…We’re still in two wars that I started. Hey, what has two thumbs and created ISIS? This guy.
If you knew half the stuff old Cheney was up to, you’d take “No Cakes for Gays” in a heartbeat. Some say Mike Pence is heartless, but remember, Dick Cheney was literally heartless. At this point, it’s just Legos in there.
Then he takes one shot at a favorite talking point of Donald Trump: the media’s treatment of the president.
And Donald Trump thinks the media hates him? One time, an Iraqi reporter threw an actual shoe at me. He took it off his foot. Lobbed it straight at my noggin. Then he gathered himself, took off the other one, and tried it again.
Ultimately, the point of the video should be heeded. Donald Trump is really bad. But that doesn’t make the atrocious presidency of George W. Bush any better.
It’s time to stop being nostalgic for something bad just because something else bad came along. Never forget…
