Actor Will Ferrell returned to Comedy Central with his hilarious “Dubya” impersonation to mock Donald Trump into oblivion.
Ferrell opened by saying:
Thanks to the bozo Trump here, folks have forgotten about how I tanked the economy, or how I didn’t get Bin Ladin, heck, you know, Kanye West even said I hated hurricanes. All forgotten now.”
The host of @midnight, Chris Hardwick, asks “Bush” if he’s supporting Trump or not. Ferrell replies that Trump is a “dangerous man” and that in Texas they would give Trump something he calls “the Amarillo steak and eggs” which is where you a guy steak and eggs and then drag him behind a truck.
Ferrell also brought up the Billy Bush tapes which featured his cousin giggling while Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women:
First of all, I’d like to say something about my cousin Billy Bush. He’s been in the news a lot lately. Him and that disgraced pumpkin, Donald Trump, talking on the bus. I just want to say ONE thing, we Bushes don’t act like that, okay? We have standards, and we’re raised certain way. We would never, under any circumstances, ride a bus. When you’re a Bush, you ride in a limousine or a jump jet, or maybe a monster truck called Sasquatch Express. Never a bus.”
Ferrell also made fun of Trump’s rigged election rhetoric by saying the only thing rigged in this election is the “stuffed Chupacabra” on top of Trump’s head. When Hardwick asks if that means “Bush” endorses Hillary Clinton, Ferrell replies:
I’m not the decider, Chris.”
This video shows that there was a time when this country thought the Republicans could do no worse than President George W. Bush, but oh, we were such sweet summer children. Trump is so horrendous, ignorant, and erratic, that the prospect of him as President practically makes Dubya seem like an angelic Rhodes Scholar. This impersonation of Dubya poking fun at Trump highlights just how far the Republican Party has fallen over the last eight years.
By no means could Bush ever be cast in a favorable light, but at least he somewhat tried to calm the waters of an America who was nervous about terrorism rather than figuratively scream, “Run for your lives! We’re all going to die!” and propose banning an entire religion from entering our country. We went to war, but he didn’t propose nuking the entire region. And Bush tanked the economy, but Trump is proposing blowing the deficit wide open, reducing regulations put in place to stop another recession, as a sequel to 2008. Bush was a terrible president, but Trump would be exponentially worse.
