On Tuesday, comedian Will Ferrell reprised his famous impersonation of former President George W. Bush to mock Donald Trump, who he referred to as “a disgraced pumpkin.”
While making a guest appearance on the Comedy Central’s @midnight with Chris Hardwick the comedian first apologized to everyone for misguided “cousin” Billy Bush, the former Access Hollywood host who was caught on video joking with Trump about assaulting women in 2005.
“We have standards, and we’re raised a certain way, and we would never, under any circumstances, ride a bus,” he said.
However, Ferrell didn’t just stick to making fun of Trump; the comedian also managed to stick a few jabs at the real G.W. Bush in the process. He talked about how thanks to Trump people seemed to have forgotten about how he dragged the U.S. into Iraq over non-existent weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
“Folks have forgotten about how I tanked the economy and how I didn’t get [Osama] bin Laden.”
But while Ferrell’s Bush refused to endorse Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, he did state that the 43rd U.S. president had a solid plan should Trump win in November.
“If Trump takes this thing, Laura and I have a very comfortable underground bunker we can move to.”
Finally, the former commander-in-chief had some sage advice for voters regarding the orange “dunderhead” running for his old job.
“Don’ let that sack of rotten sweet potatoes anywhere near the White House,” he said.
With only 13 days left before America decides who will be the most powerful person in the free world come 2017, voters are under a lot of stress – perhaps more so this year than any other year in recent memory. It’s good to be able to laugh off some of the tension this election is bringing into all of our lives.
