How about both?

Twitter users could not wait for “Saturday Night Live” this week. The Mandela memorial fake sign language translator guy was tailor-made for a modern day “Seinfeld” plot and for an SNL skit!

SNL did not disappoint.

Indeed, it did. Check out the video over at Jammie Wearing Fool and be prepared to giggle madly.

They did also hit President Obama for his FLOTUS fury-inspiring funeral selfie.


Cast member Kenan Thompson stole the show with his “signing.”

And an exit idea:

Make it happen!

    He listens in on all her phone calls, but she still wants to take a picture with him.
    Some gals just won’t stand up to a fella.

    • Harry A

      If she had the technology she’d be listening in on his phone calls too. They both know that. Bernard Squarcini who was head of the French NSA called DCRI said as much last week. “The French intelligence services know full well that all countries, whether or not they are allies in the fight against terrorism, spy on each other all the time” he said. The French are spying on us right now

      All of those that can listen are listening. And those that can’t listen wish they could. The NSA is suppose to be spy on people overseas. It’s not suppose to spy on people inside the country, thats the problem.

        >>If she had the technology she’d be listening in on his photos too

        I’m sorry, but what does a photo sound like?

    • nc ✓s & balances

      That’s what made the joke so funny. No matter how badly he treats his “fans” – read supporters – they still have stars in their eyes for him (“I will always love you!”).

    • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

      The liberal bent of the writers just have to sweeten it for him by always presenting him as desirable, cool, good humored, etc.

  • Dee

    My favorite was when he signed for “thrilled”

  • TocksNedlog

    To be fair to the interpreter, spoken gibberish is GONNA look like gibberish in sign language as well.

        Took me awhile. Got it now.

        I guess you can take that two ways?

        • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

          I only know the computer version. I’m afraid to ask about other meanings.

          • nc ✓s & balances

            Gibberish In, Gibberish Out.

            (Just me being sillyish.)

      Best comment on the entire subject! You totally nailed it.

  • Maxx

    As we approach the end of the third month of Obamacare and the subsequent millions who have lost their health insurance as a result of it, note there was one man SNL did NOT mock last night…

    …Ted Cruz

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      RESPECT. Jawamax 8<{D}

  • Sigh.

    Hmmmph. How could they forget M’Chelle?

    • Jim

      Here she is trying to get people to eat healthier, and her husband goes and reaches for the Danish.

      • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

        I see what you did there!

      • John Ledo

        you got that from the Herman Cain website…still laughing!!

        • Jim

          I only steal from the best. :-)

    • san rafael blue

      Before/ After!

    • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

      If they weren’t afraid, they could have a field day with M’Chelle. From angry woman skits to health advocate /closet junk food binger to Lady Macbeth, there is plenty of material. They could do sleeveless arm slapstick with either massive muscles of flapping flab. They could highlight her as super masculine with Barry feminine. They could morph her into the Grinch. Lots of possibilities. Unfortunately they face either accusations of racism or direct covert assault from the administration.

  • Pedro

    What a bunch of buffoons!

  • nc ✓s & balances

    Haven’t watched the show in its entirety in years, but how great is it to be able to see just these cold opens? This one was terrific. Jay Pharoah is great but Keenan Thompson is a scene stealer. The “Merkel” addition was a nice original touch.

    • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      It helps to have an actress who has done Merkel before, and then put that together with “female leader wanting a selfie with Barry.” Pretty low-hanging fruit here, I’d have thought. (And that’s NOT an oblique reference to Ms McKinnon’s sexual orientation…)

      • nc ✓s & balances

        See, I knew nothing of that, and I still enjoyed it.

  • AmericanMom

    The selfie-president is as fake as the sign-language guy. Has anyone been allowed to see his background information? How does anyone know he’s any better than that guy other than college degrees?

    • MaMa1

      We know more about the fake sign-language guy than we do about Obama.

      • AmericanMom

        Somebody needs to open that pandora’s box.

  • Lisa

    Wonder what the NSA will do with the selfie!

  • OingoBoingo

    I think SNL is trying to make itself relevant again. :)

    • caskinner

      Might do it if they keep using Obozo material. We do have a clown squatting in the Whitehouse.

    • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

      The material so writes itself that they will be kicking themselves years from now over the opportunities they are missing.

  • MohammedTheTeddyBear

    Barry 0Bama is………2 Illegit 2 Quit

  • neoface

    This SNL skit actually put Obama’s presidency in a nutshell!!!

  • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    There may be hope for SNL yet. They seem to be hitting a once a month ratio on funny skits these days.


  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    Missed it (as usual), but I did see the Stallone/Goodman/Pacino “Three Wiseguys” skit on Yahoo this morning…. I vote for that! Jawamax 8<{D} <OH!!!)

  • ConservativeTexan

    A skitzo fraud that clearly does not know what he’s doing – and that guy signing wasn’t very good either.

  • John Howard

    Hey, the interpreter guy even looks a bit like Garrett Morris, and he translates about as accurately

    • Michelle ✓classified

      Say what? Garret Morris was a very slender man. The interpreter actor looks nothing like Morris.

      • John Howard


  • Albert N. Milliron
  • Michelle ✓classified

    OK so I just watched the video of the skit – hilarious! The interpreter was the best part, he had me cracking up.

  • san rafael blue

    SNL got the Merkle hair down pat. She always looks to have combed her hair with a paper clip.

  • Cathy Thorpe

    Sorry I missed the cold open – the rest of the show sucked. Sadly, even Kings of Leon.

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    After carrying Obammy’s water for five years, SNL is finally calling out The Bamster. Unfortunately, Obama will probably pick up the phone and someone will probably get fired. President Stompy Feet can’t handle the networks not worshipping him.

  • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

    This should have been the Wallpaper behind the both of them…
