It might difficult to remember what politics was like this presidential election. Will Ferrell offered a reminder on Tuesday night when he resurrected his iconic George W. Bush impression for a spot on @midnight. It didn’t take long before Ferrell’s Bush offered host Chris Hardwick his thoughts on the Donald Trump-Billy Bush tape.

“I’d like to say something about my cousin Billy Bush,” Ferrell as Bush said. “He’s been in the news a lot lately, him and that disgraced pumpkin Donald Trump, talking on that bus. I just want to say one thing: We Bushes don’t act like that. We have standards, and we’re raised a certain way. We would never, under any circumstances, ride a bus.”


“Even I forgot how I invaded Iraq over [weapons of mass destruction] that weren’t there,” Ferrell-Bush said. “I destabilized an entire region, Chris, but no one seems to care anymore. Thanks to the bozo Trump, folks have forgotten about how I tanked the economy, or I didn’t get Bin Laden. Heck, you know, Kanye West even said I hated hurricanes. All forgotten now.”
