SNL Lampoons Obama’s Abuse of Executive Orders

 

“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!”

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.”
