'SNL' brings back Will Ferrell's George W. Bush

Comedy legend Will Ferrell returned to Saturday Night Live this weekend and brought with him one of his most famous impressions.

Will Ferrell returned to Saturday Night Live to revive his George W. Bush impression and remind everyone that, no matter how awful Donald Trump seems, Dubya was "like, historically not good" at being the president of the United States.

Kicking off the show's [VIDEO] cold open was Will Ferrell who was in full George W. Bush gear sitting behind the desk in a mock Oval Office. It's getting to the point where some Americans are even saying they wish Bush were still president now. His work has been featured on Sports Illustrated, ESPN.com, FOXSports.com, CBSSports.com and many others.

In case you're buying into the poll results, "I just wanted to remind you guys I was really bad - like historically not good", Ferrell said.

During the sketch, Ferrell's Bush repeatedly compared his presidency with the Trump administration, talking about the stock market, their vice presidents and their interactions with reporters. "We are in a post-Babe.net universe now, and we have to finish what we started", says McKinnon. "I'm suddenly popular AF", Ferrell said before Leslie Jones came out as Condoleezza Rice to perform a rendition of "Those Were the Days", recalling all of Bush's un-greatest moments as president.

"I was really bad". "When an enemy sees me on his tail, I want him to feel the same way that you'd feel if a clown showed you his penis", he explains. He also took on Mike Pence and his crusade against LGBT people while also reminding viewers of how manipulative and calculating his V.P. Dick Cheney was.

But this Bush didn't stick to Trump. "This guy", Ferrell said, pointing to himself.

Ferrell said while he wasn't a "Trump synthesizer", he and the real estate mogul have a lot in common, and even praised Trump on the economy.
