Obama’s Furious Over Latest SNL Skit

Discussing the negative results both he and his fellow Democrats had during the midterm elections, President Obama jokingly commented that he was going to sit down with incoming Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and have a discussion over a glass of Kentucky bourbon. This comment led to the Associated Press coining the term “Bourbon Summit” in reference to this meeting.
True to its form, Saturday Night Live used the comments of President Obama and the reaction of the Associated Press as material for one of their skits. Their program opened with a sketch outlining just what a meeting over bourbon between President Obama and Senator McConnell would look like.
The skit starts with the two politicians sitting around the table toasting each other over a glass of bourbon. As can be expected, when the meeting starts the two leaders are cordially discussing with each other what they felt the voters were trying to say on Election Day. However, as the night goes on and the number of drinks that each politician has consumed increases, the would be adversaries begin to realize that they actually have a lot in common. They even go as far as making a prank call to Hillary Clinton claiming to be Publishers Clearinghouse and telling Clinton that she had just won an all expense paid trip to getting beat in the 2016 elections. All is fun and games until Mrs. Clinton calls back.
Nine drinks and a few slices of pizza later, Mrs. Obama comes in and breaks up the party, effectively closing down the fun.
