Will Ferrell revisits his George W. Bush impersonation for SNL cold open

Will Ferrell made fun of “strategery” and has always helped us laugh with former President George W. Bush as much as laugh at him, not only during Ferrell’s run on Saturday Night Live, but also in a big Broadway production after Bush left office.

One year into the Trump era, Ferrell hosted SNL once more this past weekend, and let us know how he and W. feel about it all, including jokes about how W.’s reputation seems to be rising in retrospect, despite the fact that his presidency was a disaster. As Ferrell reminded us, we’re still engaged in the multiple wars W. started more than 15 years ago, and things on the homefront weren’t much better for most of us.

Roll the clip.
