'Saturday Night Live'

Spoofs Obama for


10/7/2012 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

100712_snl_debateThe puzzle has finally been solved  -- President Obama's terrible debate performance last week was all Michelle Obama's fault ... at least according to "Saturday Night Live."

Last night SNL spoofed Obama and Romney's initial showdown -- offering one hysterical explanation for POTUS (played by Jay Pharoah) choking: he was really thinking about a last minute anniversary gift for the First Lady.

Coffee mug? Denver Bronco's sweatshirt? Bathrobe?

It's funny. Or sad ... 'cause in reality the Prez can't explain away such a sucky showing that easily.

TMZ, the MAJORITY of your trolls, a.k.a posters, are racist, white Conservatives/Republicans. I am sure you know that from reading the posts and noting the racism and disrespect written on the site. DO NOT pander to them. They are ignorant, angry and rude, a dying breed, and they know it.

1. I find it hilariously sad that REPUBLICANS CLAIM to hate celebrities BUT make up the MAJORITY of posters/viewers on TMZ, a celebrity website.

2. I can't wait'til election night when Republicans/Conservatives commit MASS suicide and the heads of Fauxnews commentators EXPLODE.
Let's be honest, the only way Romney, the sleazy car salesman will win this election, is if he cheated, and his supporters have already said they're willing to cheat.

How anyone can listen to the lies (28 in 37 minutes of debate) and still vote for Romney is just sad. The man's website has something different from his speeches.

That skit from SNL was funny fiction. Obama spoke 5 minutes longer than Mitt in the debate. Obama had no problem accepting his nomination in CO in 2008. Hillary is running the White House and her state department failed to protect our people in Libya.

i can explain it just like many others with half of a brain..this was the real teleprompter with pre written stuff for him to read.obama gets credit for his speaking skills when in reality the credit should go to the writers who write the things he says and place them on a teleprompter

I didn't watch the debates. I don't watch SNL anymore either. I stopped watching debates because they remind me of two new-car salesman trying to sell me their products. I stopped watching SNL when I started falling asleep in the middle of it. If SNL was worth wouldn't come on at 11:30 at night.

Obama sucks

The problem is, the usa is a culture of fighting and abuse, and Obama is not that guy. If he would not have upheld the standards of mud-slinging, Romney would have taken this debate to a very different place. Stop fighting the fact that you have a decent human being in charge, for a change. You don't have to be ignorant, to be effective. I hope the usa does vote Romney into power, so we can have a new thing to laugh at you about..

The radical right slams the President for celebrity donors who gave 40,000 dollars while ignoring the neo-fascist donors like the couple that gave willard several million dollars and the Koch brothers who funded a superpac on their own.
Tell me, just who was "bought?"

For Gods sake, Obama wasn't "sucky". It's just that Mitt did better than expected and Obama made a few mistakes. Quit piling on.

Was kinda shocked that the liberal, Lorne Michaels, would spoof his "boy" but in the end the sketch wasn't that funny.


Pharoah isn;t very good as Obama compared to the previous SNL actor that portrayed Obama. Can't think of his name but he had big earslike Obama.
