Will Ferrell has been popping up on the late-night circuit lately, and on Comedy Central’s “@midnight” on Tuesday night the comedian unleashed his George W. Bush impression to lay down the law for Donald Trump.
The brilliant faux Bush from Ferrell’s “Saturday Night Live” days (which emphasizes the voice and that Texas charm) appeared on the show, which is hosted by Chris Hardwick, and immediately started talking about recent news surrounding the Republican presidential nominee and Bush’s cousin Billy.
Ferrell immediately insulted Trump, calling him a “disgraced pumpkin,” a “bozo,” and telling America, “Don’t let that rotten sack of sweet potatoes anywhere near the White House.”
Of Billy Bush’s behavior in the leaked 2005 “Access Hollywood” tape in which Trump was heard bragging about groping women, Ferrell’s Bush said he and his family members “don’t act like that.”
“We would never under any circumstances ride a bus,” Ferrell said, before adding that Trump wouldn’t get away with his act in Texas.
Ferrell’s Bush did find one silver lining in the rise of Trump.
“This dunderhead is making me look great,” he said, before acknowledging that he thought people had forgotten some of the more unfortunate parts of his presidential legacy.
