Barack Obama Makes Surprise Visit to 'Saturday Night Live'

By November 4, 2007

Follow me on:

Barack Obama on SNL Barack Obama made a surprise cameo on "Saturday Night Live" in the opening sketch as a guest at a mock Halloween party thrown by Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton.

Bill (Darrell Hammond) was dressed as Mystery from VH1's "The Pickup Artist," while Hillary (Amy Poehler) wore a bridal gown that all the guests referred to as a "witch costume."

A man showed up wearing a Barack Obama mask who turned out to be Barack Obama himself. "I have nothing to hide," Obama said, "I enjoy being myself. I'm not going to change who I am just because it's Halloween."

Obama then delivered the famous opening line, "Live from New York, it's Saturday night!"

6 years later, and he still wears a mask to cover his true self…

(2) Enforce Constitution says:

The rodeo clown masked as Obama, expressed the common conservative sentiment that Obama be held accountable for his actions, which many regard as treason and certainly suitable for traditional political satire. Instructive subtle insight or tragedy often underly comedy. The humorous truth revealed at the rodeo is that Obama obviously cannot withstand being held to a proper standard.

This is the funniest RED FLAG yet from the liberal progressive democrat machine. It’s PROOF they’ll do ANYTHING to cover up the REAL horrible mess we’re in morally, ethically, honestly, and horrorfully.

And yet the great one can make fun of the Kardashians all day long. The little fool can dish it out, but not take it. The most juvenile thin skinned president ever. Even if he wasn’t personally offended, he should step up and say it’s not the crime it’s being portrayed as. Welcome to Communist Amerika where free speech no longer exists.

this guy is such a joke. how in the world did he deserve to be elected (let alone REELECTED)to the most powerful position in the world …..

(14) Bill says:

The ugly joke was how SNL played Democrats straight, while they dehumanized Republicans. For example, Amy Poehler played Hillary in the most absurd way, without any relation to the truly humorous character of the deeply flawed, unethical, deceitful, corrupt, incompetent, ugly Clinton. Amy Poehler didn’t even wear a weight suit, or heavy make up, to age her character appropriately. Thus all the real opportunity for a good laugh was wasted. SNL like NBC, became just pure propaganda for a disastrous Democratic Party.

A black kid asks his mother, “Mama, what’s a Democracy?”

“Well, son, that’s when white folks work every day so we can get all our benefits, you knows, like free cell phones, rent subsidy, food stamps, welfare, school breakfasts and lunches, free healthcare, utility subsidy, and the list goes on and on, you know.”

“But mama, don’t the white people get pissed off about all that?

“Sure they do, son, and that’s called racism.”

(18) Bozo says:

His real name is Barry Soetoro. That is the name he grew up with. Google it. He is a complete con-man. Obama is a creature that he invented, a front. His birth certificate is a forgery and was manufactured.

He is clearly the worst, most incompetent, negligent president that we ever had. He defiles the office not because of his race, but because of his incompetence.

During the Benghazi attacks, he was “playing cards” rather than be in the situation room. What a CLOWN. Should have been impeached a long, long time ago. His race is the only thing that saved him.

Considering in his first few months in office he was on TV talking about how he bowls like a special ed kid I don’t think this should even make the news.

obviously he is a racist. being a white black if the mother is determinative or a black white if the father is determinative. the whole kerfuffle is exactly like the islamist outrage over the mohamed cartoons. pathetic

It’s so weird.

Barack Obama’s people would go after someone who has worn an OBAMA mask. Let he who has worn an OBAMA Mask throw the first stone!

(34) Larry Croft says:

Wouldn’t it be a hoot if Obama were to wear his own mask to the next state fair rodeo?

Oh my, what would all the cry babies say?

August 16, 2013 at 6:07 pm
(35) Larry Croft says:

People throw the racist word all over the place.

How many know a racist is a person who believes his or her own race is superior to other races? Nothing wrong with that in itself. Problems arise when we show prejudice.

Prejudice is a bad thing.

(36) terro says:

You must understand, they are following the Chinese Chairman Mao playbook. The little people will never worship any leader who can be made to be seen as a clown (like every American president). It’s just a facade to show that Obama is far far better than any of us normal people. And the NAACP…well they are using Alinsky tactics, never ever let up on your opponent, never compromise and ridicule at ALL times. Earning a good ol’ American smackdown along the way. It will be sweet.

(37) bob wire says:

SNL is nothing more than a factory of cookie cutter Progressives whom can no longer think for themselves, but need a script written for them to know what to say—same with Second City Chicago…they’re all pukes out of there now, robots, factory ordered, factory made. Their “humor” is not what made both of those entities a success so very long ago.

They are no longer “inclusive” with their humor, but exclusive—with always a victim in the punchline—neither ORganization has had genuine, all included, belly laughs in decades now.

Poehler, Fey, Fallon, Wiig, they’re all frauds—and all uber one percenters whom live nowhere near, among, nor school their children with minorities…Look it up…

when barry sotoro commits murder no one will investigate, but wear a mask of his face and its world news.
