Donald Trump is so bad in office, he’s even making George W. Bush look good. But the former president returned to “Saturday Night Live” last night to remind viewers that his presidency sucked, too.

Of course, it wasn’t really George W. Bush. It was a spot on impersonation by Will Ferrell.

The comedian made a surprise return to the show to reprise his character in the cold open.

Ferrell joined “Saturday Night Live” in 1995 and quickly assumed the role. He was to Bush, what Alex Baldwin is today to Trump.

He left the show in 2002 after a seven-year run, and has returned to host four times.

“According to a new poll, my approval is at an all-time high,” Ferrell said. In fact, he added, he was “suddenly popular AF” and he gave
“Donny Q. Trump” all the credit.

“Suddenly I’m looking pretty sweet by comparison. At this rate I might even end up on Mount Rushmore, right next to Washington, Lincoln — and I want to say Kensington.” Ah…wrong. But that’s our George.

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.

“Don’t forget: We’re still in two different wars that I started,” he added.

George also had some choice words for Vice President Pence, comparing him to his own Vice President Dick Chaney.
