‘The Rock Obama’ not putting up with healthcare BS

October 19, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Gerard Butler hosted this weekends episode of “Saturday Night Live,” but the buzz was a special guest who provided a new Obama impression.  Currently, the role of President Obama is filled by actor Fred Armisen, but this past Saturday, wrestler-turned-movie star Dwayne Johnson, best known by his stage name “The Rock,” becomes his formidable alter-ego.

In the sketch, the president (Armisen) is setting up a meeting with his health care foes: Senators Snowe, McConnell and Baucus. But as he promises his assistant, he won’t get angry.

When one of the Senators tells him, “We don’t want healthcare to fail, we just want you to fail,” the president undergoes a dramatic transformation. Armisen proceeds to Hulk-out, morphing into a massive alter-ego, complete with shredded clothes and child-like sentence structure.

The Rock Obama goes on to throw a blue dog Democrat out the window and tear the arm off Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. He’s stopped short of harming Sen. Olympia Snowe by an interruption from Vice President Joe Biden, who took the opportunity to criticize the president’s Nobel Peace Prize.

This video is was broadcast by NBC’s Saturday Night Live on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2009.
