Will Ferrell’s George W. Bush Has Some Thoughts About Trump: ‘This Dunderhead is Making Me Look Great’
Comedy actor Will Ferrell brought back his legendary George W. Bush impression to give some real talk with Chris Hardwick last night on @Midnight.
Joining panelists Mary Lynn Rajskub, David Koechner and Brandon Johnson, Ferrell-Bush started things off by defending his cousin Billy Bush over his involvement in the 2005 audio where Trump talked about grabbing women “by the pussy.”
“He’s been in the news a lot lately, him and and that disgraced pumpkin Donald Trump, talking on that bus,” Ferrell-Bush said. “We Bushes don’t act like that. We have standards…We would never, under any circumstances, ride a bus.”
While Ferrell-Bush was reluctant to announce who he’d be voting for, he was delighted that Trump’s various scandals have distracted everyone from his controversial legacy as America’s former president.
“This dunderhead is making me look great,” 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.
