SNL Presidents Reunite, Ferrell, Hammond, Chase, Carvey, Etc. (Video)

Watch Obama emerge from smoking cigarettes in the White House bathroom to play host to yesteryear's male presidents, SNL style. Oh, and there's a token woman so we can feel right at home with ordinary sexism. But they came for a good cause: "The production, directed by Hollywood's Ron Howard, kicked off a weeklong campaign to lobby Congress for action on a Consumer Finance Protection Agency by a coalition of consumer groups, Americans for Financial Reform , which includes a vast cast of labor unions, consumer, civil rights and liberal activist groups, ranging from ACORN to the AFL-CIO."

"Taped Sunday, the video reunited a cast of actors who have portrayed presidents on SNL: Fred Armisen as Obama, Will Ferrell as George W.

Jim Carrey completed the cast with his portrayal of Ronald Regan, and "SNL" alum Maya Rudolph played Michelle Obama." . . read more . .
