SNL’s ‘President Obama’ Addresses Multiple Nelson Mandela Memorial Controversies With Some Help Of The Fake Interpreter

On this week’s Saturday Night Live, Jay Pharoah‘s President Obama character appeared in the cold open to quickly dispose of the trio of distracting controversies that arose at this week’s Nelson Mandela memorial, then give a talk about health care. Unfortunately, the untethered sign language interpreter swooped in to “translate,” followed by “selfiegate” instigator and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt, followed again by the interpreter. At least he managed to avoid having to shake hands with Raul Castro again.
