Zing! “Saturday Night Live” took on President Obama last night.
You know It's bad when even #SNL calls bullshit on Obama.

Bad or oh-so-good? Twitter users were loving it.
I already like this SNL because they started by making fun of Obama

The #SNL opening straight up mocked Pres Obama hard on the sequester! Mocked, was the nicest word I could find to described that SNL skit..

Mediaite has a video clip; Watch and giggle madly.
More from Mediaite:
Saturday Night Live opened tonight’s episode taking on the big sequestration fight in Congress, with Jay Pharaoh as President Obama admitting to the American people that “I really have no idea how money works or how budgets work,” but did his best to explain to the American people the real-world effects of the budget cuts.
Of course, Obama helped put all this into perspective by saying we’ll forget this in a month because we’ll have an even worse crisis to deal with.
Twitter users point out their favorites lines and continue to giggle madly.

President Obama doesn't know how the budget or money works. #SNL

SNL just did a great skit on POTUS. "I have no idea how money works, or budgets, so I can't explain how sequester works."

Hysterical. Sometimes SNL nails it! Obama on the sequester… http://t.co/KzDgnPyTmv
— ShannonJoy (@ShannonJoyRadio) March 3, 2013
Not everyone found it so hysterical, of course. The truth hurts. Waah!
Fun Fact: The Obama #SNL opener was not only vapid but entirely unfunny just like all their other lame attempts to parody a serious man.

#SNL wasn't funny at all tonight. The racial jokes made me uncomfortable. The fake Obama is horrible, I rather a white guy in blk face.

Sigh. Raaaaacist! Pitiful whining aside, the skit was a win on Twitter.
