“Saturday Night Live” last night mocked President Obama’s executive action to grant legal status to 5 million illegal immigrants by twisting a staple of the TV classic “Schoolhouse Rock!”
In a spoof of that children’s show’s popular “I’m Just a Bill” segment set on Capitol Hill, “SNL” cast member Kenan Thompson explains in song that he’s an immigration bill that hopes to “be a law one day.” But then Jay Pharoah as Obama appears along with a surly, cigarette-smoking character called “executive order” and … well, watch the video.
“The clip might be humorous, but the executive overreach of the administration is not,” said Andrew Kloster, a legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation. “In a Heritage paper, we outlined many such examples. But the list of abusive White House actions continues to grow, including most recently, the action on immigration.”
