You may have thought the only entertaining battle to follow between former President George W. Bush and current President Donald Trump would be who would have the lower approval ratings in future (God-willing) history books. (Trump’s current approval rating, according to Gallup, is 38 percent ― three points above his lowest score ― while Bush’s low-point was 25 percent. But Trump still has time. So, so, so much time.)
In any case, Will Ferrell recently reprised his satirical role as George W. Bush for the “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner” last month, giving the country an approximation of what a war of words between the two Republican presidents would look like.
Watch the almost 12-minute video above to see Ferrell’s cigarette-smoking Bush, who utters lines like, “History has proven to be kinder to me than many of you thought.”
I needed eight years, a catastrophic flood, a war built on a lie, an economic disaster — the new guy needed 100 days.
Will Ferrell as George W. Bush
Ferrell spends much of the speech going after Trump, at one point unveiling Bush’s latest portrait ― a two-toned Trump.
“As you can see,” said Ferrell as Bush, “I’ve exhausted my palette of yellow and oranges.”
Luckily, for this Bush, he still has so much time to finish the portrait. (So, so, so, so, so, so much time.)
