SNL's Fred Armisen an Obama Groupie: I 'Like Him More and More,' 'I've Just Been a Fan of His'

Kyle Drennen's picture

Talking to Meet the Press host David Gregory on the NBC Sunday show's web-based feature Press Pass, Saturday Night Live cast member and Obama impersonator Fred Armisen confessed: "I've grown to like him more and more. You know, I was always – I've just been a fan of his, if you could say that about a president. So that's the other kind of good part of it, is you know, getting to like him more and more."

By contrast, fellow cast member Jason Sudeikis told Gregory he wished he could impersonate someone more exciting than Mitt Romney: "I'd prefer that he did something scandalous or something and, you know, incredibly stupid, as opposed to just boring....I mean, he's like a butter sandwich with unsalted butter and the crust cut off."

Sudeikis's comments were prompted by Gregory wondering: "Romney here is not exactly lighting it up on the campaign trail in terms of a being an exciting figure. What does that do comedically?" Gregory then referred to Armisen having the "advantage"of playing Obama on the show.

Later in the discussion, Sudeikis admitted SNL's leftward slant: "...we're only a reflection of what's being, you know, done out there. There's no agenda, believe it or not. Can't help it with, you know, our age and where we live, you know, on the writing and cast, you know, to skew a little bit liberal but it's not like, you know, these are all human beings trying-"

Gregory helpfully added: "It is New York City, come on." Hey David, where is NBC News located again?


Here are portions of the April 29 exchange:

DAVID GREGORY: But what about the personalities? I mean, Romney here is not exactly lighting it up on the campaign trail in terms of a being...

JASON SUDEIKIS: No.

GREGORY: ...an exciting figure. What does that do comedically?

SUDEIKIS: It, it, it – I, I think it makes it kind of...

GREGORY: Even better?

SUDEIKIS: I don't know if it does make it better. I, I'd prefer that he did something scandalous or something and, you know, incredibly stupid as opposed to just boring. Because to play boring is, is a little bit boring. I – we're trying to find, you know, things like this last week we sort of dealt with him, you know – I hate the overuse of this word – but his flip-flopping and sort of not knowing who he is. We're sort of, you know, we were narrowing in on that.

(...)

GREGORY: Fred, you have the advantage of you've been impersonating President Obama now for, for some time, since he's come into office.

FRED ARMISEN: Yeah.

GREGORY: How has this developed for you?

ARMISEN: It's nice because it's – you know, I think that as the public discovers who he is and finds out more about him, I'm doing the same thing. And that's, that's the, the kind of fun thing about it is that as all of that unfolds.

GREGORY: You – I want to show a clip, too, of, you know, capturing the hype of President Obama and then some of the reality that he had to deal with.

ARMISEN [AS BARACK OBAMA]: It's the time to look forward and acknowledge the sacrifices we're all going to have to make. But, before we do that, remember the election night? Grant Park in Chicago, nice weather, Oprah. The white guy Oprah was crying on. Good times. But enough about the past. Let's talk about the present. Remember the convention in Denver? Rocky Mountain air, yes, we can. Yes, we can. Even John Kerry was fun.

GREGORY: These are the two sides to the President, always harkening back to how much hype there was surrounding him when he got elected.

ARMISEN: Yeah, and it's also the public, too, kind of like remembering back to that really fun time. But I've also like, I've grown to like him more and more. You know, I was always – I've just been a fan of his, if you could say that about a president. So that's the other kind of good part of it, is you know, getting to like him more and more.

(...)

GREGORY: Is it going to stack up this year, do you think?

ARMISEN: You know, who knows? And also we can't – we also can't think about it too much.

SUDEIKIS: We don't think about it.

ARMISEN: Yeah. We definitely don't.

SUDEIKIS: We don't sit in a room and try to like – there's no – we're only a reflection of what's being, you know, done out there. There's no agenda, believe it or not. Can't help it with, you know, our age and where we live, you know, on the writing and cast, you know, to skew a little bit liberal but it's not like, you know, these are all human beings trying-

GREGORY: It is New York City, come on.         

SUDEIKIS: Yeah.

ARMISEN: Yeah.

I'm not overwhelmed by Obama's time in office, either, but who cares that Fred Armisen is a fan? What does it matter, other than to give someone inevitably the opportunity to once again voice the opinion that SNL was never better than in the '70s, or to exclaim in faux shock "SNL is still on?"

Nah, just messing, I love Armisen. Portlandia's great.

#12 You forgot something

Armisen has played Obama more than 30 times, and he's made fun of the president every single time.

#13 The portrayals of Obama

have been much kinder than those of Republicans. Like Sarah Palin.

I'm sure you've watched every episode too. Any particulars, or is this just a hunch or a deep seeded bias you're running on? Talk to me.

Did you take a wrong turn at DosKos or something? This website fights liberal media bias. Now, since we only have one president, and he's a liberal, it doesn't mean the website shuts down. We can still expose pro liberal bias or bias AGAINST other conservatives.

#33 Newsbusters Explained

You see bal, Newsbusters is a site about liberal media bias. Fred Armisen, a member of the media, is a fan of Obama, and also does an impression of him. Therefore, his impressions of him are influenced by his like of Obama, and an example of media bias. I remember after the Chicago Olympics fiasco Armisen did an hysterical bit about GM giving away a Chicago 2016 t-shirt with every car purchase. I thought "great! They're really tearing Obama a new one! I hope this keeps up". Well, they musta gotten a call from someone in the White House, because I don't believe they've done anything nearly as critical since then. In fact SNL, and Armisen's impression of him, are textbook examples of liberal media bias. I sure hope you understand this site better now. If you need further tutoring just let me know /snark

Sorry, I can't get my knickers in a twist over the fact that actors on SNL are Obama fans. It just falls in with the fact that 95% of the movie and TV industry is. In other news, water is wet and fire is hot.

When hear something like this I really wish there were some way to ask someone like Fred Armisen what he thinks about Obama throwing a major human rights icon, such as Chen Cuangcheng, to the Chinese wolves for the sake of expediency, because the Chinese demanded it and an apology to boot.

These people, famous for their moral laxity in real life, write and preform their skits that routinely take cheap moral shots at all sorts of people, but in real life they simply do not comprehend what real moral courage is about, and fawn over hideously phony leaders.

#61 Oh, poor you

The KKK may have been founded and populated by democrats in early incarnations, but the one constant factor though out its existence is their use of the Bible to preach hate. I'd say it's even more unfortunate that they give Christianity a bad name than it is pathetic you think todays democrat party has anything to do with today's Klan (still rooted, let's even say deep seeded <yuck yuck yuck> deep-seated in Christianity).

Of course the everlasting link between the KKK and democrats, the one that they would gladly give theirs, yours, or anyone's baby over to death to save, is Planned Parenthood.

We get mildly annoyed when they attach Christianity. It's old news.

But for a really good time, remind them of the belief in eugenics, and the inferiority of minorities to whites, that the beloved margaret sanger espoused, pop some corn, and watch the fur fly. Yeee-Hawww!!!!

Then show them the damage done to the black community because of PP and their just as beloved welfare state, and watch them beam with pride.

#81 Post attack

Yeah, it was really, really good. I got A LOT out of it.

It still doesn't change the fact that, like the Taliban, the KKK uses the word of God to justify terror. But I should clarify my prior comments relating to the burning of materials on one's lawn at the hands of the Klan - In actuality the Klan burns a Christian cross on the lawn of the victim, not the widely accepted symbol of the democrat party - the donkey.

#82 Iknownothing*

And why did the KKK burn Christian crosses? Do you think for one minute that a real Christian would defile the most sacred symbol of Christianity? Will try to simplify for you. They can call themselves many things, ie, today the commies call themselves...American Center for Progress. The KKK were not Christians simply by their acts of cruelty. It was all about power over the people, especially those deemed inferiror. Now THAT sounds like a democrat.

#83 attention seeker

You don't have to share your interpretation of the Bible with Klansmen, but you can't deny they hold, and have always clung to Christianity. The democrat party did not form the Klan. The first Klan were segregationists who targeted republicans.

Similarly, the Klan did not give birth to Christianity, but Christianity did give birth to the Klan.

#84 iFail to see reality

You can dance around it all you want, but the Klan was born of DEMOCRATS, the same party that held up the passage of Civil Rights legislation as long as they possibly could.

No Christianity did NOT give birth to the Klan, it was never condoned or accepted by any sect of Christianity that I know of.

#91 iFight, Cute with the commie connection, hahaha

It was the Democrat Party that gave Blacks the poll taxes and literacy tests to keep them from voting… Republican. It was the Democrat Party that created the Ku Klux Klan as an enforcement arm to terrorize Black and White Republicans. It was the Democrat Party that repealed anti-lynching legislation, yet today their very liberals are hypersensitive any time a noose appears in public.

Way too easy,LOLz

BTW: Another Ku Klux Klan member, Sen. Robert C. Byrd, Democrat of West Virginia, personally filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for 14 straight hours to keep it from passage. He was a Democrat member of the U.S. Senate till just recently.

#95 Roman Crosses were around before Christian ones were.

Used for torturous death, of countless thousands...

Just because it looks like a Christian Cross it doesn't make it one.

The simplest and most common Christian cross is the Latin cross. It may not have come into use until the 2nd or 3rd century. The empty cross, usually favored by Protestants, reminds Christians of the resurrection, while the crucifix, with the body of Jesus on it, favored by Catholic and Orthodox churches, is a reminder of Christ's sacrifice.

Come to think of it Rome was run by Democrats...Nuthun new under da kine sun

#96 iknownothing*

You were the one who used the Christian cross as an example of Christian "influence" over the KKK. But you are once again showing your lack of knowledge and a distorted view of history. The elitist who saw themselves as superior were the ones demanding slavery continue, cruel and harsh "lynchings" for their versions of justice are the same mentality today of the elitist snobs who call themselves liberals or progessives. They have simply redefined their goals to dependency on welfare, tax payer paid abortions for the "poor", divisiveness, and class distinctions for select groups. Same thinking as the original KKK which were democrats.

Christians believe in none of those things. So your continued mistatements of history and origions of the KKK both show your ignorance and your continued insistence on inciteful and incendiary remarks. Oh wait. Sounds like you are "burning crosses" at NB.

PS: There was Christian influence in the early days of this country. Those tenets of the Church are the basis of the founders' ideas for our Constitution.

That post had me rofl......

#101 Read a history book

Yahoo! it. Your brief history of the KKK fails to even touch upon the origins. The original KKK was made up of southern segregationists up in arms over a republican party responsible for black male suffrage. They targeted blacks and the whites they felt were responsible, and it was never about republicans versus democrats.

You know this.

You also know that the 2nd incarnation of the Klan introduced the burning cross.

You know this.

You should also know that the Klan today, in its pathetic 3rd incarnation, still consider themselves a Christian organization.

One more non-fact from you and I start counting strikes.

#102 iFight

Excuse me? You start counting strikes? Delusions of grandeur much?

Are you now saying the KKK was NOT started by Democrats, or are you throwing up a straw man? Ah, Yahoo. If that is your source for history it explains a lot little boy.

Proud member of the 53%!

#103 Here's what I'm saying

If the men who started the KKK considered themselves democrats, and you thereby conclude that the Democratic Party is responsible, then those same Klansmen who considered themselves Christians must lead to the same conclusion - the Christianity is responsible.

You probably don't like it laid out so nice and neat for you, so it's your turn to deflect...maybe even condescend to a level you're comfortable with because so far you're not impressing me.

Not too much at all.

#104 Silly boy

YOU started the whole thing with an intro to a racist joke, then accused Christianity of being involved with the KKK. Christianity has far less to do with the KKK than the Democratic party does.

And I have to tell you, I'm not concerned about impressing those of lesser minds and intelligence, who get their history from Yahoo.

Proud member of the 53%!

#105 Delusions of what?

Racist joke? Where?

Accused Christianity with being involved with the KKK? The Klan uses Christianity, not the other way around. Show where I said otherwise.

You're so wrapped up in tying the KKK to Democrats that you haven't the slightest clue or interest in understanding that their hate comes not from a party platform but from a book titled The Bible.

This is fact, and it is not debatable. The KKK states it for themselves.

Furthermore, in 1860 the democratic party was split into 2, a northern and southern party, each with its own presidential nominee. The Constitutional Union, People's Party, and Liberty Party existed in addition to the Republican and Radical Republican parties of the decade. Again, your abbreviated understanding of history conflates all non-republican parties into democrats.

I hope you learned something today.

#106 I did indeed learn something

You are not only a troll, an unintelligent troll at that, but you are a liar.

#108 Neat

Another strikingly intelligent response.

Facts are lies?

#109 You saying something is a fact

don't make it so.

#110 Pay attention, nimrod, ---

Liberal bullshit  fantasy story-telling yarn spinning episodic comments in typed conversation do not take the place of utilizing facts in the furtherance of your tale; except, of course, in the Land of the Trolls.

#111 One final thought

Find a biography of the KKK online that doesn't describe them as Protestant Christians.

#112 You must have me confused with someone

who feels the need to obey your commands.

#113 Yeah, iZippers, we're just confusing with you w/ someone else.

Like maybe one of your previous 40-or-so identities.

Go iZippers!

#115 Funny that both

Democratic parties included this item in their platform:

Resolved, That the enactments of the State Legislatures to defeat the faithful execution of the Fugitive Slave Law, are hostile in character, subversive of the Constitution, and revolutionary in their effect.

Funny how both you and Jer seem to think Northern Democrats were free of racism. Truth is the Northerners were probably just envious of their Southern counterparts' property.

#116 ➚ Nope

Democrats are still doing the bogeyman scare. Although I recognize your success in "keeping them folk in their place" (as you and your Democrat ilk have put it), I will not congratulate you on your success.

At least Lyndon Johnson was honest about it when he said "I'll have them ni**ers voting democratic for the next 200 years!"

Carry on with your victory dance, Oh Great White Massa.

You're still disgusting.

#117 Your fingers may be flying over the keys, Nimrod, but ---

you ain't saying jack shit.

It appears SoL was correct.

You emanate the odor of the much maligned - and speaking of shit - the pos, zippers, et al.

Liberal.

Troll.

Fool.

#118 Coco, ifeign graduated and moved on.

He now attends the Sam Houston Institiute of Technology.   Same letters, so he didn't have to throw out his letter sweater or pom poms. 

To re-elect Obama would be like the Titanic backing up and hitting the iceberg again.

Oh, I get it. You say it's a shame that the klan uses Christianity as an excuse for hate in the same way that you propound your "education" as a means to demonstrate how big of a self-absorbed bonehead you are.

For the MSM: In your pomp and all your glory, you're a poorer man than me.  As you lick the boots of death born out of fear.

#120 You can TALK "plenty educated" until you go down for the ---

dirt nap, iFight,  but your stupid-assed foray using "deep-seeded" shows you to be a maroon, a buffoon, and a dork who harbors about as much 'education' as a spittoon.

You are merely another lib twerp, typing out a mouthy check via keyboard that you haven't the intellect to cash.

Putz.

If he is one of today's educators, then we already know he has "re-written" history. You know the one, the one that was our "reality".

#123 No Wonder

Armisen's portrayal of Obama is a warm bucket of spit.

#124 I can't help but wonder if

I can't help but wonder if these people are paid to say these types of things, or are they just that stupid?

 

Facts are like kryptonite to the liberal.

#125 Wonder no more

Their both, they get paid, and their stupid

Seek Truth, Defend Liberty

#126 SNL's tanking ratings reflect their audience.

Public Access "Senior Roundup" at 4 AM Sunday morning gets better audiences.

SNL is just tired drivel, like all of MSNBC's irrelevant talking has-beens.

#127 I knew Obama was no good from his first...

"I and me". Nothing has changed since then except, if anything, he has gotten even worse.

The fact that he gave Bush's administration zero credit for helping to locate Obama in his hovel where he was "holed" up, is all anyone needs to know about his lack of character and class.

For what it is worth, you can put me down as a "non-fan" of Barack Hussein Obama who will take great personal pleasure in cancelling out Armisen's vote come November!
